It’s official. US FIGURE SKATING SAVED BY A KWAN BABY plus 2021 Skating Nationals. Bell, Alysa, Karen are your Olympic workforce (Alternates, Thorngren, Glenn, Izzo)

Appears like no husband or boyfriend is concerned however once you’re 40 years outdated you do what you wanna do. US FIGURE SKATING IS SAVED. I puzzled the place she had been. We haven’t seen her on the ice for some time.

The ironic factor is I began watching the film, Armageddon and the background music for Liv Tyler and Ben Affleck’s love story is, Dante’s Prayer which Michelle Kwan skated too. My first considered course was, MICHELLE KWAN when listening to the music. Coincidence? I believe not.


Outcomes [SP] {Judges particulars}

Fast males’s SP replace. Chen is within the lead however solely by 3 factors. His final mixture was off a bit however they really gave Vincent some nice GOE and they’re shut. {Full particulars} I used to be shocked. Nationals judges PCS are humorous. Brown has a scratchy touchdown on his final mixture and is in 4th. Outcomes are within the bolded outcomes above. Not within the leaping competitors however needed to point out how shut the scores had been for Vincent and Chen and at Nationals no much less.

Women Lengthy Program [LP Results only] {Judges Particulars} [Full Results]

Mariah Bell 216.25 S Karen Chen 213.85 B Isabeau Levito 210.75 4 Gabriella Izzo 188.11 5 Lindsay Thorngren 186.38 6 Audrey Shin 180.58 7 Kate Wang 178.20 8 Hanna Harrell 175.66

I’ll be sincere with you if we’re going by PCS, Chen ought to be manner forward of Mariah and since their tech was very shut (and I imply very shut) Chen is rather more watchable. Chen will need to have been downgraded on a number of her jumps. Olympic workforce can be named tomorrow.

Gold choked and doubled most of her jumps and for as soon as they didn’t PCS her to loss of life to prop her up. Mariah wasn’t good, neither was Karen. I actually felt like Isabeau ought to have gained the lengthy however they gave it to Mariah. Didn’t like Wang’s LP however she was nonetheless lowballed within the quick. Audrey Shin is a fantastic skater however her jumps are a large number. I don’t know. I really feel like Chen ought to have gained. Mariah is a greater jumper. Chen is a greater artist. I suppose it might have gone both manner. Harrell must cease placing her arms above her head. It appears to be like ridiculous. It’s simply ugly. Izzo ending 4th was a shock. Good for her. (#TEAMBOSTON) Isabeau is an excellent skater however listening to the horrible journey pump her up makes it onerous to wish to see her succeed. Watching dwell I believed they’d first give it to Isabeau as a result of the 139 plus was enormous. Mariah was type of messy however they gave her 140 within the lengthy. The it seemed like Chen would win. Then Johnny and Terror modified their thoughts and I knew they’d the outcomes earlier than us (They aren’t good sufficient to determine this out beforehand) And naturally, Rippon needed to make Mariah’s win about himself. He was throughout her Raphael was nowhere to be seen after the kiss and cry.

Quick Program (Kate Wang was lowballed) **With nothing to lose I see Amber Glenn throwing the kitchen sink within the LP which is tomorrow night time.

Mariah Bell leads SP. (Tripletriple seemed cheated however she acquired credit score) Karen was second. (VERY shut cheated triple triple) Alysa fell and was third (Large late X-Mas present. She in all probability ought to have had her different triple downgraded. Isabeau Levito was 4th. I get she is a reasonably skater considerably however Terror and Johnny in Nastia pink overdid her energy. Lindsay Thorngren in fifth. All jumps. Gracie Gold cheated her triple-triple and was downgraded and by no means even tried any pace and was given the largest present total. ( Solely getting -1 by 2 judges on a clearly cheated TT) Gabrielle Izzo was seventh, Kate Wang who I believed was nice was completely lowballed to eighth and Audrey Shin who’s a fantastic skater was ninth (I believe she tousled her triple-triple and didn’t get credit score for the second leap as a result of it wasn’t related however the remainder was stunning. Amber Glenn didn’t do the triple axel after which screwed up her triple-triple and is manner down in 14th out of 16 skaters. That could be a enormous choke for a woman some thought had an opportunity to make the Olympics. Starr Andrews additionally screwed up like she all the time does and was in eleventh.

Bradie Tannell is out and can petition to the Olympic workforce. If she is wholesome sufficient to skate I say take her. She did sufficient final 12 months to benefit a spot. No manner anybody however Chen wins mens. The over-scoring of gross Leduc and Cain continues. (By no means acquired the hype) and Ice dance has their 3 groups. Lindsay Thorngren had a triple axel however she not often appears to land it. She’s your darkish horse. Karen Chen has been nailing practices in accordance with Jackie Wong. Which normally means she tanks when it issues. Annoying Gracie gold has been hitting her triple triples too. USFSA likes to prop up her PCS. Alysa Liu will in all probability win. Mariah Bell would possibly shock. I learn she acquired the best rating through the grand prix occasions. Tho I don’t keep in mind the place. Women S Begin listing. SP is tonight. NBC video hyperlink although it says it’s momentary. Michelle Kwan having a child is extra thrilling than this occasion. Youtube could have a world feed. Want I lived wherever else to keep away from terror. Junior Women outcomes I like the junior gymnasts however by no means pay a lot consideration to the skating. Josephine Lee is the one one I’ve ever heard of. There was a video of her up as a very younger skater and she or he had such potential. She completed third.
