The part about how Gracie has had other clean programs during that period is part of why I don't think this counts as her 'turning it all around'- I don't think she was that far gone to begin with.Its 1 more than Sotnikova has managed in the last 18 months. And Gracie has skated quite a few other clean programs during that period as well.
Sotnikova has so much talent. It really is so frustrating that she cannot pull it all together. If she ever does, I will be ecstatic!
In any case, though, I think we basically agree then.
