    Isn't she too young? If she continues to skate like that, Gracie's reign may be short lived. She works with Frank too, doesn't she?

    Wow! Her jumps aren't as big as Gracie's but I would say she actually hears the music and is much more "graceful". Very elegant at such a young age.

    Wow! Her jumps look effortless. Nice technique.

    She is age eligible for Sochi, no?

    No. She's only 15 years old. But that means she'll be 19 by PyeongChang.

    Gracie reigned over something? When was this?

    Don't you know? She is the heiress apparent after Yuna steps down.

    That's still Yuna's reign though. Gracie has not ruled over anything (yet?).

    Ashley is still queen of ladies' singles of USFS.

    Thanks for the video. Polina's skating style reminds me of Alissa C...very elegant, into the music. Who does her choreography?

    A lot of the skating world acts as if she has and assumes, erroneously imo, she will. I should have put quotes around "reign" or used

    At least Gracie's jumps had some people say whoa.

    Just watched this one on Youtube: I have to admit this is the most beautiful and a clean FS with needed difficulty for Oly year from US ladies I watched on youtube so far for season. She has very nice edge and followed music beautifully.

    Wish she continues doing well for rest of the season.
