Jeremy Ten and Shawn Sawyer were underappreciated. Great performers and SS from J10. Viktor Pfeiffer!!!
For ice dance, Kriengkrairut/Giuletti-Schmidtt and O'Brien/Merriman
At the rink. Again.
Cesario doesn't have the power/SS, which if the balance of the PCS marks follows along to SS (assuming judges mark that first) explains where her corridor starts.
Sam (1993) is in fact older than Gao (1994). The thing is Gao has not improved that much within the last few years, and we don't know how far Sam can go, being 20 already and her first year out at the senior level.

^ Sam has been on the senior level for @ least 3 seasons (We've seen her compete @ the Liberty Summer Competition for @ least that long). Sadly, she has been injured @ least twice leading up to US Nationals. I'm so glad she got some GP assignments this season ( & international exposure). May she stay healthy & get to compete @ Nationals again.
Internationally Cesario was a Junior until this season. She aged out.

In Ladies, people with splatastic performances and ehh PCS seem to be well rewarded. In Men's a couple of wonky quads beats great skating skills with no quad every time.
I've got your program components right here.
MAE BERENICE MEITE.
Yes, I needed the all-caps for emphasis. She skates a clean SP, with a 3-3, in an ISU event, and gets 55-57 points. A clean LP with 6 triples gets her 105-110 points, a score Gracie Gold can get with a 3-triple LP.
I agree with you. To some extend she makes me think of Surya Bonaly. By the way, Surya will participate as a coach to "Ice Show" on M6 (a french TV channel) which will open next week. Good luck to her and her team!

Oh, I see. Thanks for the clarification on that. I did forget that some skaters skate @ the senior level for their home country, while still competing @ the junior level internationally (same case for Keegan Messing, for a few years).
