    Um, Pierce won the US challenge skate where Glenn was 4th. I'd say that's a good result! I think both her and Glenn deserve to bit there aren't enough spots to go around. Based on previous USFS decisions, I'd be shocked if Glenn is sent over Pierce. This is a really good result for her, though and should set her up well for next year.

    What happened to Angela? The SP used to be her nemesis now it seems it's the LP. Looks like the US has yet another talented headcase on their hands. A strong showing here and at Nationals and she could have gone to Jr Worlds but that's out the window now.

    Not sure what's happened to Barbie Long this season nor what's going on with Angela Wang's LP's. I think it was a USFS strategic mistake to change Wang from Tallin to the stronger field in Ostrava, but too late now. At this point, they should just stick with their current roster and keep Miller and Pierce on for Estonia, assuming both are healthy and prepared. Glenn is very young (not yet 14) and has time to do the JGP again. Better that USFS look with an eye to next season too, and get multiple young ladies in front of international judges and their names out there. Having Chen and Edmunds already locked in for the final is enough.

    Barbie Long doesn't get much elevation on her triple jumps so now that she's grown taller and filled out since last season, it's not surprising that they aren't working for her consistently anymore. Her PCS has always been rather weak for a skater of her jumping prowess, so now that the jumping isn't super solid anymore, nothing else about her skating is there to keep her afloat. She has a nice layback spin but the other spins are generally slow with not the best positions (which is a little confusing, because she is quite flexible as evidenced by her biellman position), and then her SS are just average and she's rather slow and workmanlike across the ice, which doesn't help her footwork. She's improved her basics and artistry quite a bit these past few years, and her programs have improved under Tanith Belbin, but it's not quite enough to get her to the next level when the jumps are hit and miss. In novice she was a jumping machine but she was also much shorter and thin as a rail then.

    As for Wang idk what the deal is, she can obviously do the jumps, she hasn't changed much physically for a few seasons now. To me she looks nervous and uncomfortable on the ice at times. Also maybe she has issues forgetting mistakes and moving on with the rest of the program? It's a shame she's so talented. Obviously, she's not the most blessed physically being quite short to begin with and then having short legs on top of it, but she has good carriage and flattering costumes, and there aren't really any weak points in her skating except obviously her consistency. Ugh, she is so worthy of JGPF it's a shame she won't make it...

    Also, I didn't watch the US Challenge skate so thanks for that information about Pierce. Given that result, she definitely deserves to go! I was thinking back to only the summer competitions where her scores weren't as high. And Glenn seems older than 13 but given that she is so young she certainly has plenty of time.

    Please tell me that wang is not becoming the next Agnes Zawadzki... (and they're both coached by Krall )
    Loved Proklova, even if the PCS looks a bit too high...

    It's hard to watch stuff like that, but I appreciate skating federations like Ireland & Argentina who are attempting to build their their programs from the ground up. Cristina Lin appears be from Buenos Aires & train in Buenos Aires. There's no other way for a nation with absolutely NO skating history to build a program than to get their skaters exposed to the best of their level. The skaters & coaches can gain a lot from attending these competitions, and I'm glad that their federations are willing to send them.

    I love skaters from non-traditional powers. It's what I first liked about Yuna Kim.

    I hope the skaters learn a lot from this experience... and in my secret heart I always hope some kind coach or better skater will give them a few tips. I don't know if that happens in the real world. But I hope it does.

    Just so you know...

    I didn't know what nation was represented by BIH, so I looked it up, and I think it's Bosnia and Herzegovina.

    So, good for her. Also: Hurray for the girl from Turkey, which is my new favorite non-traditional skating country.
