Assuming Alissa, Mirai, and Ashley make podium (which might not even happen, who knows....), who would you predict to join them on the podium?

Caroline! And that would be huge step forward for her as odd as it sounds.

Yes, pewter would be a step up.

( Of course, higher on the podium would be fine too. I'm easy to please. )

Voted for Angela Wang, an upset! I feel like she's always left out of the discussion, but I like her programs this year and she has a 3F-3T. She could be a Jr. Worlds spoiler.

I hope it's Caroline with her 3L-3L. Anybody have a clip? or a recommended jump layout for her with that combo? Rachael, Agnes, and Christina have all been subpar so far this season. Leah Keiser, Nina Jiang, and Angela Wang do look promising though.

I hope it's Caroline, but I'm predicting it'll be Flatt.

Is Caroline doing/attempting a 3R-3R (loops)? I don't recall her landing it even once. May be she landed one in practice?

I voted for Leah Keiser. This girl is fearless, and her scores from sectionals were big (especially, the FS)!

She has apparently been landing them since summer time. Her loop tech looked beautiful in the short program at SA. :kickass:

Did she land the 3R-3R combination as posted here?

People has seen them at practice sessions only.

No, she did not, but she did land a gorgeous 3Lo.

No, Zhang has yet to attempt the 3Lo+3Lo combination in competition this season (I think she should consider putting it into her SP) but her combo looked good to me in Skate America practices earlier this fall -- refer to this post:

She has consistently performed strong short programs so far this season; it's her free skate that has been more inconsistent.

i think Caroline should switch her SP jumps to 3L-3L, 3F and 2A. She sounded rather confident about that combination in an interview. But her lack of jump repertoire hinders her permutation of jumps for the LP.
