    I absolutely LOVE this quote.

    Part of the reason that makes her skating so great is her unpretentious joy and I think that partly comes from her going into competitions with no expections and just trying to skate her best. I really hope she's able to keep the joy as expections on her grow exponentially. Let's face it--it's inevitable. But I really hope she won't let that get to her and just be able to go out there and perform with her heart every time.

    I totally agree with this. The pure joy gives her that IT factor and makes her shine. I hope she can always keep this precious quality and get to the podiums for a long time.

    It is exciting because it will be the first time for Kaetlyn facing first-rate senior competition. I actually hope she finishes 2nd to Mao because I'm afraid if she wins the pressure and expectation to deliver at Worlds may be too much to handle. A runner-up finish would allow her to fly a little more under the radar.

    The pressure already is insane. Massive hype, everybody is talking about her, huge win at Canadians. So 4CC will be the first big test I guess. And I agree with drivingmissdaisy that placing second would probably be the best for her. It will be seen as a success but won't raise expectations to even more crazy levels.
