We are still musing over the Japanese Ladies and so why not muse over the USA Ladies.
The Americans have two very well accomplished lady figure skaters; both of whom have recently landed on the Worlds podium and prior to that one had several World titles and the other a Series of gold Grand Prix Events. It appears that they will receive a bi for the PreOly Worlds in Moscow (and quite possibly, the Olympics in 2006, too). So we go to the stable as we did with the Japanese Ladies to find a third
In no particular order I list:
JENNY - unfortunately, after a very good Nats, she was unable to deliver one good skate in Dortmund. Can she get it back togetheR again and compete with the best?
ANN PATRICE - Unquestionably one beautiful lyrical skater but last season was just not going to do it for her. Can she recoup?
ANGELINA NIKIDINOV - A beloved skater in GS but can she finally rid herself of the demons?
[BEATRISA LIANG - A proven dynamo at one one of last season's GP events. Can she hold onto that and make a more serious move this year?
YE BIN MOK Undoubtedly the best jumper in the USA arsenal of Ladies and a lovely skater too. Can she hold it together next season?
KIMMIE MEISNER and KATY TAYLOR These two ladies are moving up to the Seniors and both made impressive showings in the Junior Worlds. Are they ready for Seniors?
AMBER CORWIN Showed a lot of talent last Nats, but will she repeat?
I]The above listed ladies' only hope for the Worlds is a 3rd at Nationals. Which one will likely make it?[/I]
[How does this team stack up with the Japanese Ladies team?
