Yes, I actually think their chances are very good now- I'd be so happy if they make it, it's always such a delight to watch them
Did they basically withdraw after the SP at the Canada Challenge event to conserve themselves for GPF? So excited to watch them in the coming Grand Prix Final. And they are bringing last season's short program back. The footwork and choreography in that Monde Inverse SP is the bomb!
I guess it possibly wasn't? Maybe they were used to the current SP. Those mistakes looked disastrous in the SP. They definitely need to work on the SBS jumps.they went to challenge just to run through their SP, since they are back to last year's very successful SP... so no more SBS 3Loops... so yes, they didn't feel like doing the LP... headed to GPF now!!! let's hope the change of SP was the right move!

i agree... i think perhaps they panicked... they had a good outing at ACI... they weren't confident with the SP here at GPF... i think either one of them would have given them a similar result... however.... apart from the one fall right at the beginning in the LP, they truly had the performance of the day! They were too far to climb up to the podium but they certainly skater very well in the LP... I am happy they redeemed themselves. They are a super young team. They have a bright future. But in a relatively deep field in Canada, they became #2 behind world champions and GPF stars on their first appearance last year.... too much pressure... let the kids develop! They have an illustrious coach in Josée Picard (coach of B/E) and I think she can do wonders with them. Charlie boy needs to own it! He needs his confidence. Julianne is a star. At ACI, she fell pretty much on every attempt of a jump in the warm up... and then, she nailed everything when it counted. She nailed everything again today... She was able to do land all triples as a junior single skater... so I wish them to just take their time and bloom. I hope they make the world team this year and remain injury free.
The first fall in the GPF SP for Julianne looked so scary...what exactly looked to be the cause of that? Yeah I know the GPF SP was an off day for them. When is the World Team again? Yes, they could have the nerves of being suddenly in the spotlight. Maybe they need to skate with the mindset that they are alternates all the time to take the pressure off...and not let expectations put pressure on them. They are so pretty, would love to see them on Olympic ice in 2 years
This is a bit off topic but I just spotted these two at the waiting area at the airport in casual clothing, I was too shy to go over there and greet them but I'm happy I saw them!
