Thanks to everyone who is reporting on the competition! It's great to have GS eyes on the proceedings.
Currently frozen as a popsicle
The free skates (at least the later groups/last group) are usually on TV.

HOw many hours will this SP take? DOnt know whether if I should cancel my workout and watch now or watch on demand tomorrow at ice network.
Off to a great opening with Ashley Cain 3F-3T , 3LO, 2A
That was quite a start. Hmmm I think she'll get that toe. If she does we'll probably see our first 60+ sp of the night right away.
Ashley Cain. She is 18 years old.
Navy and royal blue dress, bit of ombre/dip dye going on. Backless. Slightly ruffled skirt. Loads of sparkle!
Blue flower in side bun.
3F3T - she looked a little tentative but landed it
Crowd is clapping as the music gets going
3L - nice
She is really performing this program nicely.
Camel spin, changefoot, catchfoot, sit
Nice spiral into double axel - nails it!
Lots of variety in the step sq with different levels and nice choreo. She is a very smooth skater.
Huge fist pump to finish!!!! She looks thrilled.
She is so happy in the KnC. Having a tear!
61.45! And she's thrilled.
A Brazilian friend that paid for the streaming just told me;
steps 3Lz, shaky
3F+2T, lean on the landing
change foot spin
Interesting costume. Dark green with black dress, long sleeved with black sheer gloves. Belt above skirt. Deep v front.
Is it just me or does she look a little like blond Agnes!!
3lz - huge! Scratchy landing a little forward on her toe
3F 2T - I think the flip got away on her a little
Nice positions in the combo spin...she loses a little speed...
2A - nice
Spin - sit, flying sit...
Step sq - little trip to begin...
Spin - layback, one handed biellmann variation.
She looks pleased in the KnC!
52.81 and she is in 2nd.
Just got home from a meeting. Glad I didn't miss much!
Thanks to everyone who is giving play by play of the competition. You guys are the best!
And yay to Ashley Cain for a 60+ SP score!
Much appreciation for the updates! Wow, go Ashley Cain!
I remember her from last year (although unfortunately, what I remember most is her hating on Wagner winning... "Like, how is [Wagner's win] that even possible?" or something bitchy like that )
Here's hoping for Cain setting a strong precedent for skates to come.
Barbie Long - white one shouldered dress - lots of ruffly detail on strap and bodice. Matching decoration in her bun.
Opening with a flying sit spin.
Step sq is elegant but seems slow to me. Gets a little off balance near the end.
3Lz 2T with arms above her head - nice
Layback spin and biellmann
3L - tight on the landing
Back sit, V, changefoot catchfoot.
A nice program but it didn't excite me and not one I will remember.
Wow, they are taking ages with her scores.
55.55 and she is in 2nd.
