They won't be winning any gold medals in 2006 without triple-triples. I think that much is clear.
Sasha needs a triple-triple.
Michelle has a strong Triple Lutz-double toe. Is it so hard to add another revolution to that and make it a Triple Lutz-Triple Toe?
Kristi Yamaguchi was doing that combination 12 years ago. Why can't Kwan get a triple-triple?
She desperately needs to up the technical content of her programs to be competitive. You would think she would learn this lesson after her experiences in '98 and '02.
Also, triple-triples may not be enough.
If the Japanese women start doing quads and triple axels with consistency, they will not be stoppable unless the USA match them in technical content.
I think Sasha said she was working on a quad. Nothing from Michelle though on getting a quad or triple axel.
I would like to see her take some chances. If she falls, she falls. She's already won a gazillion national and world titles. She shouldn't play things conservatively. She's got nothing to lose.
