I've updated the U.S. Senior ladies' international scores table in my blog: http://unseenskaters.wordpress.com/scoretracker/2012-2013-senior-ladies-scores/
Angela Wang has the highest JGP total score so far (162.65 today in Croatia), but she scored higher in the FS in Lake Placid (105.69), landing 6 triples there vs. 5 triples today (popped her 3F). She has landed her 3Lz+3T+2T combo (base value of 11.40) in both of her JGP free skates this season.

Great for Angela Wang! She's on a roll! Good to see another skater able to vie for one of the two top spots at Nationals!!!!! (She should have placed much higher at last year's Nationals, IMHO)

The fact that Ashley would only need a 50 point SP on top of what she scored in the FS to have the highest international score really shows that she controls her own destiny. Really hopeful to a bright future for the US ladies.

RE Angela: Her jumps are incredible, right up there with Gracie's as the best in the US. I wish though that they both would spend more time on the second mark, I think Angela possibly needs a complete style makeover if she wants to truly be at the top. I think she has great potential though and a good heart!

Mirai Nagasu just got bronze at Finlandia w/ a 163.09. Came back to score over 110 pts. in the LP which will put her in the 3rd place overall in the above tally

Here's link to Ashley Wagner's "Samson & Delilah" FS (123.57, 1st) that was posted in the Japan Open thread in GSD: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJMDkYMfy7c

I've added Mirai's Finlandia scores: http://unseenskaters.wordpress.com/scoretracker/2012-2013-senior-ladies-scores/

So far, U.S. ladies have won a set of Senior B medals (gold, silver, bronze) and 8 JGP medals (2 gold, 4 silver, 2 bronze).

What's interesting (and encouraging) to me is that Mirai has landed her most difficult combo, the 2x-3t cleanly in her 2 most recent competitions this year (Glacier Falls and Finlandia), and she's getting level 4's on all her spin combos. Her overall jumping ability has improved markedly over Glacier Falls. She is also returning to back-loading her program a little more than last year. I wonder if she'll be the dark horse at Nationals this year...

IA. I like that Mirai is building on each competition. Mirai usually isn't an early season skater but her LP at Finlandia is encouraging and definitely something to build on for CoC. I hope this season is like 2009-10 or even better for Mirai. Once she gets comfortable with these programs, I think she will really be able to sell them. She just has to be confident.

Congrats to her for winning the bronze! :cheer:

Mirai looks to be in a good place so far this early in the season. But I hate that so many skaters are switching to mohawk entries to their flip jumps. The three turn entrance is so much more pleasing to watch. I find it interesting her team put in two triple flips into her program. The flip is a more fragile jump for her than the lutz is...

And her hair color is a few shades lighter. ;)

Mirai's LP: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D6h8JdqSDhw&list=UUOG1vkwKpqV10PwSdalZgjw&index=3&feature=plpp_video

Her jumps are actually looking (to me) quite high, that lutz (despite the edge call) was probably the best lutz I've ever seen from her. She looks in great shape, too. :)

Mirai's LP looks good! Hopefully she will sort out her issues with the flip. Also, she got just a level 2 on both her SP and FS programs...they looked plenty complicated to me though!
