Hopefully, this will give Bradie confidence going into U.S. Nationals. I think if she skates two good programs, she will definitely in the top three and go to the Olympics. :yes:

Wow what a debut! Congrats Bradie and good luck at US nationals! Seeing how inconsistent the other US ladies have been this season I think she has a really good chance :)

I really like Bradie! I hope she doesn't get her nerves get to her at Nats, because if she doesn't she can win! Good luck Bradie :)

Kudos to Bradie for her SP beating the previous US nationals record! Good luck in the FS, I really admire her consistency and technique!

Edit: I see Bradie is already getting quite a big amount of hate for being scored what she's being scored, for being boring, for being too princess-y and all that jazz. I hope she doesn't let it get to her like Gracie did, because personally I find her refreshing and, finally, a reliable US woman.

I absolutely love her. Her two programs are beautiful. They've both moved me to tears and THAT is artistry right there. With her win, I hope that she gets more resources to help her out next year. What a great moment for her, and for us.

Well done Bradie!

The signs were there from the beginning of the season, and she has been steadily improving with each competition. I saw her myself at Lombardia, and I remember thinking at the time, she looked like a threat. A well-deserved national title.

Wow! Ever since Lombardia, I had a sneaking suspicion it might happen... but now it did!

Our baby Bradie is a national champion! :love:

Bradie has been getting so much flack online tbh. Congrats to her for delivering.

I may not be a big fan of her skating, but her grit is commendable.

Late bloomer or what?

I think the Bradie hate is because she threw a monkey wrench into everything. Without her, Mirai would be National Champion, and Ashley would be going to the Olympics. She doesn't deserve the hate. We finally have a clean, consistent lady to cheer for.
