    Yeah the top 4 after the SP were the podium contenders going into this event, the rest of the field is pretty much unknown. I thought Barbie had grown too, she and Polina both look so tall now, they used to be so little. Also I thought Barbie's jumps looked higher than usual, maybe that's why she was having trouble with the landings? I know at her JGP, she got a few URs, so maybe she's been working on jump height to fix that and the result is just not as much control with the landings. Polina's speed is just wow, really brings to mind Kostner during her teen years with the fast skating, long limbs and hard 3-3s! Karen I agree is really special but she's still just a little girl. I'm glad Mariah's jumps seem to have gotten more secure as she's grown, I was afraid they would get worse, but no that lutz was really nice. I hope the medalists end up being the top 4 after the SP, in whatever order, I really want to see Polina and Mariah on the JGP next season so I hope hope for their sake they can hang on to a podium spot so as to not miss out again (I really felt both should have gotten JGPs this past season quite honestly).

    There was a clear "line of demarcation" between the top 4 and the next 8 in terms of what was put on the ice.

    louisa05 silverlake22 mskater93 thank you very much for your answers!
    There are no videos, so I can not estimate by myself.

    It is good if when girl grows her jumps grow with her.

    Polina was not stable enough at the beginning of the season, and it is the main reason why she was only substitute at JGP Events 2012/2013.

    Wow hard to believe i remember seeing Mariah for the first time two years ago as a tiny Novice skater at Nationals with that watch me gene when she skated. Now she's grown up and become a sophisticated young lady. I was also worried about her losing her jumps but they seem to be a bit bigger.

    Love Karen Chen, this should be her Junior debut right? Surprised to see her in 3rd. Really want to watch videos to see the top 3

    I guess, unless you're an icenetwork subscriber, you're out of luck where videos are concerned...

    Anyone watching?

    I'm watching the numbers . . . not quite the same thing but this is life when you are a figure skating fan.

    I'm watching the numbers on icenetwork too.

    Here comes the heavy hitters group.

    Can Karen Chen come through in the clutch?

    Huh, Frank Carroll is in the K&C with Polina and her current coach? Coaching change? Co-coach?

    ETA: Tweet from annmjenson: #frankcarrollrules Frank has been seeing Polina on Sundays in Palm Springs, BTW #omaha2013.

    Hm...Polina gets 101. Much better than last year, but well off Gracie's 118 from last year; I think Polina knew that.

    probably some underrotated jumps. Only thing i can think of with her score being that low for a mostly clean program.

    What happened to Shpilband? I'm only going off the unofficial results but she went from the final group to last? Mid-skate injury?

    She just fell apart--a few falls, a waltz jump (i.e. ZERO points).
