On the scoring sheets that have been tweeted by Sylvia she is not listed as a withdrawal (or if she is, I missed it). Has it been confirmed that she ever registered?Where is Amelie Lacoste ?
I won't be quite so blunt as coolboogie22, but I will say that it is unfortunate that she wasn't here. Three major things are required to become a very good figure skater, IMO: talent, a great work ethic, and the ability to skate well under pressure (ile. do in competition what you can do in practice). Amalie has the first two attributes, but not the third. She and her coaches don't seem to have figured out how to address her inability to compete as she practices, which really is what is holding her back at this point. IMOi one of the solutions is to compete a lot, one of the things that Amalie has not done. This is one of the things that people like Gabrielle Daleman and Alaine Chartrand have done. Now some of the younger Quebec skaters are doing it as well. I really wish she would follow in their footsteps. Perhaps it wouldn't cure her inability to compete well, but it probably would help to some extent, and it certainly couldn't hurt.
