    The screaming girl at Skate America

    Does I'm the only one who actually enjoy the «Screaming girl!» at Skate America

    Today, I watch my favorite performance on youtube from Skate America and I really enjoy the «Screaming girl!».
    It gives me the impression that she support every athlete at this competition and give them more cheer than the audience.

    I would like more people like her in the audience at the next competition, I have the impression that this type of «Cheer» give more energy to the athlete and they compete better

    Cheering for skaters is good. A lot of skaters say that it helps them focus when they hear the
    audience cheering them on. This fan was screeching. It was annoying to a lot of folks in the arena
    and annoying to me and I was watching at home.

    Did we ever find out who she was?

    I LOVED her. With such a small audience in attendance the skaters need extra support.

    That qualifies as support?

    In my opinion, no. I was at Skate America. The "screamer" was annoying and childish.

    I liked her. I liked that she cheeered even for spins and footwork. She was so enthusiastic for everyone. She made up for the empty arena.

    Her screaming was as annoying as the screeching strings in Gold's short programme.

    first, she was not a "girl"

    the voiced you can tell is a middle aged woman 30 years old +
    second, its was not screaming more like a crows screeches
    she's not annoying but more like a mockery of her self that you get embarassed for her and near her
    any screen caps of her ??

    wopheee, sounds like a hick if you ask me, lol

    You want screen caps? Sorry but that's just creepy!

    I liked hearing the screaming on the stream, I thought it was nice hearing big support from such a small crowd.

    Didn't know this forum had so many hoity toity fancy pants opera-glass wearing snobs. Perhaps at next years Skate America we should screen spectators, so only people who support skaters in the right way be part of very small, and I assume, elite audience. Got to keep out the riff raff.

    I appreciate her enthusiasm. I raised my brow and rolled my eyes when I heard her, but good for her, cheering on even third tier skaters. I would appreciate a cheer if I'm out there struggling through my footwork.
