LADIES FREE PROGRAM - POSITION AFTER 11 OF 17
||Gabrielle Anne Cormier
i had no idea alexe was competing for canada now. when did that happen? is she still training with yuka and jason?
Glad to see Veronik Mallet retain her lead after the short program, she has good skating skills and nice jumps just needs to add some more expression and she could be a fabulous skater.
Why Roxanne Rheault withdraws for the free skate ??
Any information about Veronik Mallet? I know she won the silver last year, but basically I know nothing else about her...

Watching the Short programs live at the arena, one thing that I noticed immediately was Daleman's speed. Perhaps it was just excitement being in her first Senior National Championship, but she was rocketing down the ice and into her jumps. Not surprising she gets good distance at that speed. I think she slowed a little in the Long. Maybe her coach tried to reign her in a bit so she wouldn't burn herself out too early (or launch herself into space )

So exciting to see what happens here, it's such an unfamiliar feeling.
If Osmond is able to snatch back that second spot at Worlds (which seems inevitable at this point even though nobody wants to say it and jinx it lol), it is very likely that both Daleman and Chartrand will move up and the whole of next season will be a very competitive dogfight between the two.
Although not very likely, there is a chance she could secure three spots. If she wins at least a Silver Medal, then Canada will have 3 spots in ladies next year. For that happen, she is going to need some help though given Asada and Kostner's bombing at some past World Championships, it is improbable at this point but doable.

I think top 10 is a much more reasonable goal though it does seem the international judges are eager to reward her. But they have other favourites too. It's a rare competition that all the favourites skate clean so it will be interesting to see who does what and where that will place them.
I really enjoyed Chartrand and Daleman's skates though Chartrand seemed a bit stiff and double-footed several of her jumps. She does seem cute and spirit of attack so I would be interested in seeing her skate again. I only saw Seguin's SP and her LP was a bomb so from those two programs I am not overly sold on her. I think I prefer Daleman's style over hers but maybe this was not the competition to make a final judgement. I will be watching Seguin at 4CC with great interest.
It's too bad about Lacoste--I do feel for her--but I am tired of pretty skaters with bad jumps being atop the podium. She definitely had the class of the field when it came to finesse and speed but you've got to have the jumps and now, finally, you need that attack and fight. When she popped her second jump I said to the screen, "You're doing this to yourself". She could have easily claimed the silver or even put on pressure for the gold.
And still no videos outside Osmond? I would love to rewatch the programs or see the SPs outside the top 3.
