    According to Twitter, both Gracie and Mirai have been landing their jumps outside of the run-throughs. (They seemed a tense when the music was on, and struggled with their combos.) Gracie landed a 3-3, 2A-3T, 3S-2T-2T, and 3Lo, among others. She and Frank "aren't worried," because the 3-3 has been fantastic in training.

    Let's hope the Ladies bring it and don't skate scared like they have sometimes this season. Back in 2010 Ashley,Rachael and Mirai skated lights out when the pressure was on. Like Scott Hamilton said Rachael and Mirai skated like you want from the two Ladies going to the Olympics.

    Can anyone hazard a guess as to why they moved this thread from edge but left identical one of Yuna's on main page?

    Well it looks like as far as day one went for the ladies practices Wagner was the only one that really had her feet under her. Not surprised she's skating well. She's been strong all fall, and based on her interviews and tweets it seems like this year she's really growing/settling into the role of America's leading lady.

    Let's hope the other ladies bring it all together in time for tomorrow nights sp!!!

    Im reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally hoping Mirai is going to be able to get that third spot.

    I really think the fight for third is a toss up.
