    Viktoria bombed her short at Challenge Cup(I think on trying a 3-3 toe) and did 1-lutz and a 3-toe-fall in FS. She has not done two clean programs this season with her intended tricks. I also think she doesn't get the points she deserves in PCS. At Challenge Cup Free Skate her PCS were 8 less than Alissa's(-1 in skating skills and -1.5 in choreography e.g.). Though Alissa gave an extremely bad performance. So yes, I guess Viktoria has to do her very best to finish top ten. Crossing my fingers though!

    If Italy wins three spots, who is their third lady?

    I am pretty sure A&A will earn the three spots for US at last

    As will the Russian ladies and the Japanese. It would be nice if China and France could win two spots, while they have more fine talents at home.

    Embarrasing or not at least I find it strange. US with their figure skating traditions, dominating ladies for so many years, lots of skating clubs, rinks and ponds, summer competitions, top notch coaches and choreographers, great ice shows…….
