They make ice so fast at Skating Club of Boston I don’t have time to get to the restroom and back. They need to give everyone else lessons.
As a person who has skated at SCOB I get pissed because they take so long compared to other rinks in the area lol.

I literally don’t understand how they could be any faster. It’s like less than 5 minutes.

A nice tidbit for those remembering skaters from a not so distant past:

Caroline Zhang was the technical specialist for the Junior Men event
Douglas Razzano was the technical specialist for the Junior Women (group A) event
And former US pairs skater Danielle Hartsell is the Ref on the Sr Ladies FS event right now.

Good luck to Gracie. She exceeded my expectations with her short program. I didn’t expect her to make it to the final flight. The free skate, though, involves endurance and fight, which, she has been lacking in her last competitions with a lot of doubles and lack of combo attempts in the second half. So, I’m hoping she can do better.

Well that was fun Violetta. Too bad about the pop. Love the dress.

Ok I know Ting has had ankle surgeries but can she ever resume her skating and achieve the level she had before? Is she so compromised that she will never be able to? Is she not ready to compete? Is she spooked? All of the above?

I so liked her skating. Her jumps were airy (not muscled) and now they are not there or barely. It's sad. I want the old Ting back.

Pity about the fall. I do still think Lara has improved a great deal
