    Well, it will be up to Mirai, Gracie, etc. to beat her.

    I would prefer that Czisny not be sent to Worlds if she is below par technically (in other words, if she is held up by massive PCS scores). A shaky Czisny is not a safe bet if Olympic places are on the line because ISU judges won't be as generous as USFS judges.

    Deservedly. (Sarcasm: "Oh, wait: Do you mean to tell me that in figure skating, jumps are not the only thing that matters?!")

And there are many skaters besides Wagner who have skated well enough this season to offer stiff competition: Gold, Nagasu and Angela Wang, to name a few.
    Yes. Comments of this sort were the the type I was referring to when I first commented on this thread.
