    was I the only one who is not surprised by Caroline's placement? I thought she was super slow, her footwork looked easy, and I thought all the jumps were UR. Very pretty music though....

    Poor Gracie....but perhaps not the year to have her on a World Team when we need to get 3 spots back...and she has some nerve issues.

    I like how Tonia said Caroline was just "a little bit" short on the 2nd loop as the slo-mo clearly showed the underrotations.
    Thanks! Mirai's SP music reminds me of "The Princess and the Frog" (Disney movie). Must be the band music. Haha!

    A bad way, mostly, since from what I've heard, Caroline skated cleaner but scored lower. Just more proof of reputation scoring.

    It's not extremly inflated.

    She scored 52.19 at Skate Canada, where she also fell on the 3F-3T. She scored 25.66 in PCS there vs 26.34 here.
    TES: 27.53 in SC vs. 28.74 here.

    So then we know who to blame for judging improprieties? In any case, it's anonymous on the international scene isn't it? And either way without an oversight committee to step in and say "we've determined these judges are judging unfairly, they are now removed from judging" does it even matter? But now I think we're OT for the thread.

    Back on topic: first time I've seen Gracie. I expected more based on everything I've heard. I'm sure she's usually a good jumper, and her movements seemed fluid and choreography on-target, but in terms of "wow factor" I haven't seen it yet.

    Mirai skated very well, and Gao and Zawadski are yet to come. Plus they are also banking on the favorite, Ashley. Gracie still has time. Would do no good to put Gracie on the Worlds team until she works out the kinks with her nerves. She should use the time to work on her presentation skills. This doesn't keep Gracie out of the running forever. And, I'm sure judges will be generous should Gracie perform better in the fp.

    She's capable of skating a near-perfect FS, but it just depends on whether or not she can pull it out on Saturday. If so, she can climb up past Miller, easily.

    I guess I'm not surprised. There has been so much hype around her. That creates extra pressure.

    Thank you! I had missed Mirai. Didn't get back from work in time ... she looked very strong. I just don't love that program though. But I'm thrilled for Mirai.

    Gracie is handling pressure like Mirai and Alissa have. She needs to fix that somehow.
