    Gracie is more consistent than Adelina that is the difference.

She can fall on a flip and single a flip and then maybe do 2 or 3 jump combos with it but sometimes she can't even do combos like at worlds! This planning really makes no sense. They need to minimize it. Is this because she doesn't train full run throughs? Like she can do flip after flip in practice so they're like she can really do the flip!! She's great at it! But then just blames nerves for flip failures in competition? So they don't need to work on removing flips just her nerves? Just replace it with something else. Loop?

    So good to see Gracie mature right before our eyes this season. She's learning to control her nerves much better too. She didn't let Ashley's great performance rattle her at all. Of course it being a team competition might have helped but she still responded with a great performance of her own. Now get her a choreographer who can figure out the right programs for her and she's set and a threat next season.

    3 thoughts about the ladies event:

    1. I was really happy to see Akiko make a comeback. She was overscored, perhaps, but it was great that she won!
    2. So great for Ashley and Gracie to end on a strong note as well - loved their skates. Gracie sure has matured throughout the season. Nice to see!
    3. I have difficulty with many of sky_fly20's posts. He/she may know a lot about skating, but the insults he/she makes about these extraordinary skaters are so rude. It makes this forum less of a place to talk technicalities and more of a place to defend people and get into arguments. Please sky_fly20: opinions are great, but insults are childish and only make you look uneducated. I think you are better than that.

    Looking forward to next season!!

    she lands consistenly her flips in practice and warm up as her coach suggests
    and even Sotnikova herself feels confident about them only in actual competition it has problems
    something needs to be fixed or she needs to minimize using the Flip jump.

    A massive score for Akiko in the LP.
    Her SB in the LP is higher than Kostner's.
    Good for her!

    I think you are being a little too critical of a young girl, not too mention giving bad advise. Eating 1 meal a day is the worst solution. All athletes should eat 3 balanced meals a day. Opinions such as yours is why so many young female athletes end up with eating disorders.
