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

    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?

    She still has a bit of "coltish" look, but what a wonderful prospect!

    You can't always judge by video, but her jumps looked big. And a sense of musicality!
    Alexandra Proklova, Karen Chen, Polina Edmunds; a second golden generation?

    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

    I would rather say a young YuNa Kim, in both style and athleticism.

    What I noticed is how straight she is in the air when she does her triple jumps. She is a very nice skater with some impressive jumps. Yes, Gracie's jumps are bigger but Polina should be able to make up the difference in GOE with higher PCS (if the judges mark what they see on the ice rather than reputation).

    I see young Caro, gangly, and Makarova. If I did not know, I would guess she was Russian. Very lovely indeed. Yes, USA still has young talents. We'd have many more if they could afford the training money or recoup it in a pro career. There is competition for third spot indeed!

    She looks very into the ice and confident in her edges and steps, and thus makes it look easy. I love the choreography and expression. Very impressive!

    She is amazing, I remember seeing a video of her when she was much more younger and she was adorable.
    She reminds me of Carolina Kostner. Lovely arms and posture. Her jumps can be good but can also be sloppy (like in her first GP).
    I really hope she goes to senior nationals, she deserves the chance to at least try and qualify for Sochi. The third spot is wide open IMO.

    All spots are open to be honest not just the 3rd spot.

    I doubt they will leave Ashley and Gracie at home. No chance.
