    golden411, Yes I knew that.

    What annoys me is that what is on the summary page is just the total score. I go back and forth about whether it is more of a pain to hit the global plus or the plus per skater.

    Interesting to see Gold, the girl that USFS has been seemingly holding up to show erryone, quite far behind Zawadski....

    When Agnes hits her SP she is not so easy to beat. Remember last season at Natls?

    65 is a pretty good score for this early in the season.

    Gracie did a 2-2 instead of her 3-3 otherwise she'd be right there with Agnes. Lets see who lays down a good LP.

    As others pointed out she did a 2-2. But she did a great Rippon 3Z afterwards. And Lynn Rutherford noted that she had a TON of speed, so that likely help her score as well. It's pretty noteworthy she still got a 59 something and beat Amelie Lacoste, who did a 3F-2T, 3Lo, 2A.

    I get the sense that Gracie was so eager to do her program she rushed the jump a bit. That was probably the biggest 2F-2T I've seen ever. I'm confident that this will be a one-time thing. I"d be interested to see the protocals.

    But I agree Jammers, the FS will tell the tale. Agnes has historically not done well in the FS. And Gracie has a huge BV planed with a 3Z-3T and a 3F-1L-3S.

    Its might be to much for her to beat some of these girls who are more experienced this early in the season. But if she can keep it together that is half the battle. To many top US girls in the last few years haven't shown enough fight in them.

    I don't think it is asking too much to hope for a clean program.....

    I will also be happy if Agnes finaly skates a very good LP.

    I like both of these girls.......maybe I have higher hopes for Gracie but still it is nice to see Agnes off to a strong start.

    As to the "hype".....IMO there is not enough interest in USA in skating .....let alone too much hype.

    Go Gracie, Go Agnes....good luck to both in the LP.

    Just looked at the protocols. Gracie got level 4 on ALL her non-jump elements including the step sequence. Plus she got some major +GOE on them. She beat Agnes in non-jump elements by 2.59 points. That explains why she had a decent score despite the huge mistake.

    Ironic that Gracie's jumps let her down of all things. But the judges like her overall skills it seems.

    The "thanks America for hosting this competition" bonus may have also kicked in a little. It sounds like Lacoste skated better than Gold today, yet she's behind by a bit.

    Gold lost 7.2 points (BV of 3-3 is 9.4 vs 3.1 for 2F-2T plus -.9 GOE) by not doing the 3-3. It was a costly mistake.

    In the end, the jump BV was 12.73 for Gracie 15.51 for Amelie. Jump with GOE was 10.97 for Gracie vs 17.68. So Amelie wins with a 6.71 margin.

    But besides that jump mistake, Gracie was solid on the rest of her program -- goes to show why fighting after a mistake is important. As a result, Gracie had nonjump elements of 16.80 while Amelie had nonjump elements of 14.2, a 2.60 point lead.

    One could argue that home territory bonus came in PCS where Gracie beat Amelie by 2.14 points. However, when you at the program as a whole, the mistake didn't really have an impact on the PCS categories. She had great speed throughout, lots of transitions and decent choreography. In fact, if you didn't know what was required, that 2-2 really didn't interrupt the flow of the program that much.

    Amélie Lacoste ‏@melipetit
    Woohoo!! 59 points ! Ça commence bien le début de la saison! pic.twitter.com/qeuSWqYU

    Agnes Zawadzki ‏@agneszawadzki
    Beyond excited with the way I skated!! Hope everyone loves the program! It's one of my favorites thanks for all the support! Much love ❤

    Haven't seen any tweets yet from Gold reacting to today's skate.

    And don't see an article by Lynn Rutherford on IN yet. Meanwhile, here is a series of tweets from ‏@LynnRutherford:

    LaCoste's biggest goal coming to SLC was to gain the ISU minimum required TES for worlds, and she did that in her short, earning 31 TES.
    12:51 PM - 14 Sep 12

    @zhonnika She is a happy camper, said this was her best in quite a while. Loved the deep-into-the-ice footwork choreographed by PCamerlengo.
    12:54 PM - 14 Sep 12

    Gracie Gold takes the lead with 59.38, despite what looked to me like a double-double conbination. Live, her speed is incredible.
    1:12 PM - 14 Sep 12

    Gold not worried by double/double in her Hernandos Hideaway short, said she just rushed the take-off.
    1:30 PM - 14 Sep 12

    As for Zawadzki, her 65.24 is higher than any international short program score earned by a U.S. lady since Nagasu at the 2010 worlds.
    1:33 PM - 14 Sep 12

    This one refers to Gold:
    @Elsk8tefan Agreed. Lots of personality and sass out there, handled the mambo footwork section well. Impressive from Agnes & Amelie as well.
    1:47 PM - 14 Sep 12

    ETA:
    Skatebuzz has USFSA's quotes from Zawadzki, Gold, Lacoste, and American and Canadian pairs teams after their skates today:

    [Although the original source is USFSA, I've seen these only on Skatebuzz?]
