    Mao's dilemma is she cannot win Yuna by triples but she can make a mistake by trying 3A, I think. Yulia's performance is yet enough fabulous.

    Gracie only scored 130 with pretty much the same tech content not to mention clean one as Yulia whose score was almost 10 pts higher. On Russian soil I do not see Gracie getting 140 with clean performance.

    Well, in reality with two minor mistakes, Yuna scored 227 this season. Clean Julia, 214. However, Mao's all time PB is 207.

As I actually like Julia I find it quite annoying.
    agreed,
    though I think Gracie has a legitimate chance to challenging Yuna

    sky_fly, I'm beginning to wonder if you're a personal acquaintance of Gracie's by the way you project such delusions of grandeur onto her.

    Gracie has the big skills to get into the podium if clean like the others, nothing grandeur about that
    speed, power, big jumps, body type and hollywood like looks Gracie has it like Kim Yuna

    Gracie looks better off the ice imo. I don't like her packaging or lumbering skating at all.

    blonde hair, Grace Kelly dead ringer, miss usa like smile, the quintessential american sweetheart packaging
    she is an endorsements dream come true, she will get tons of commercials and air time for sure
    maybe an IMG contract ?

    you mean 4 consecutive titles Kwan has never won ?
    I also think she can equal/surpass Kwan's achievements in the future

    Gracie Gold already has an IMG contract.

    But she looks nothing like Grace Kelly (except in the sense that all blondes look alike ). At this very moment Grace Kelly is rising from the grave to come and haunt you for saying that.

    I think she will win 12 in a row. She'll only be 30 by the end of her run, right? Or maybe 15.

    an IMG contract already, nice
    its the biggest modeling agency I think in NY and the World

    I do think Gracie Gold looks like a Hollywood actress
    her eyes remind me of Grace Kelly. Gracie's look is very unique that you can help but look at her

    No, she won 8 consecutive titles.

    4 consecutive nationals I think Gracie can do
    I don't see anyone challenging her nationally, by then she will be a World medalist also

    although post 2018 we might see the likes of Karen Chen, Polina E., Amber etc move up into the ranks
