    God I wonder if Jackson is like "dammit Karen, we said you're not allowed to write it's our skates."

    I'm guessing she'll never utter the words "boot problems" again. I'd put it in her contract.

    She is probably in Waterloo for programs? What famous choreographer is there?

    Karen may be there for skate fitting. Jason went to Waterloo for Jackson skate fitting last summer and practiced at TCC while trying-on the skates.

    Karen is not in Waterloo. She tagged Jackson as her location and because Jackson is located in Waterloo it showed up as that.

    Nope, just that he choreographed it.

    Well I'm glad a new boot company was accepting of her despite her reoccurring boot issues. They commented on her post with a smiley face so it must be okay that she's open about it. Hopefully she'll build a better relationship with Jackson and maybe finally get over these issues she's been having.

    Maybe Nathan helped put in a good word for her - but hope she can settle her boot issues and focus on her great skating and further improvement instead.

    Wasn't the USFS skate tech who did all the alterations to her old boots in the first place a Jackson employee? I hate to jump in on this converation again but it seems like Karen has a honeymoon period when it comes to boots. On the flip side if she does feel more comfortable in brand new boots all the time a larger company has the production capacity to make it happen.

    I don't know what a Jackson employee potentially working on her old boots has to do with anything. I think a good portion of her "boot" problems come from a mental block and if she has a better relationship with a company, maybe she'll be able to get through that. Just being hopeful.

    FWIW, re Gracie:

    On Mar 20, Micah Tang (who trains at Ice Den Scottsdale) posted a very nice photo with her, along with this comment:

    It's been great to have you at the rink! Thanks for stopping by for a month. Gonna miss you lots! 😭😭😭

    https://www.instagram.com/p/BgkNLiNg...n-by=tangmicah

    Gives the impression that Gracie is moving on?



    Hanna Harrell is competing in Junior Ladies at Egna Spring Trophy. SP on Apr 6; FS on Apr 8.


    (Per the Ladies column on USFS assignments page, "Zhang" withdrew on Mar 23. But not clear which Zhang.)

    Hope Hanna does well, she could easily win that assignment skating close to clean.

    Gracie looks great! And this is just further proof that she may be training in Aston.

    Bumping this thread up!

    SOI starts today and all the ladies of Team USA have been posting practice updates on insta stories!
    Ting Cui recently posted some jumps from public skate: https://www.instagram.com/p/BhB1yyIh...by=ting_a_ding

    Not too much new news but I didn't want this thread to get lost.

Pretty good record if you ask me!
    Because I know a Bradie, I can assure you, that no one works harder than her. She also has an amazing relationship with her brilliant coach. That’s an extra benefit.she will great.
    Hi Georgia!

    With +5 GOE coming up maybe Karen should consider a new jump layout. Her 3Lz is HUGE, gorgeous and rotated, it's putting it in combo that's an issue.

    As Patrick says, Alysa is "our Lord and Savior"
    We just need to not hype the heck out of her a la Gracie
    So think this on here and not on NBC

    Also, in the Bradie Tennell thread, I posted a bunch about US coaches and what needs to happen to get us better. Check 'em out!
