EX - Mirai's after US Nationals.
I have seen almost all Yulia's skating (SC, CoR, GPF, Russian C, and EC) and also find LP at SC the best one. May be this is because of the fresh first impression.
But also because it was the only one where she did not experience much competition pressure. After that, once she suddenly became a candidate to Sochi team,
the preshure was huge, constant and growing. EC skating was also very good but as you remember she was fighting for placing her jumps somewhere. Sport prevailed
over art there.
Nedless to say that I find her LP being the best of the year in all categories.
I was impressed by: Volosozhar/Trankov (Skate America long program), Yuzuru Hanyu (GPF, both SP and FS), Davis/White (US Nationals).
Jason Brown's FS at US Nationals. An exceptional program performed really well.
i wonder what impact, if any, his performance at nats going viral will have on judging and on his mental game going into these olympics

The judges would be wise not to underscore him, the world is watching and he's one of the few names they know. A friend of mine who I have never spoken to about skating before asked me about "James Brown" the power of the internet is strong indeed.....And I'm not being sarcastic, that was pretty close to getting the name right.
