    ^ I watched the video. Bizarre landing on the 3z, kinda landed on 2 feet like she was sticking a gymnastics dismount! But, IDK, it actually seemed to me like she was exuding confidence. the other jumps were like clockwork and I noticed she changed her final combo spin. I like it when skaters change things up. Good for her. Hopefully, we will get a chance to see the LP.

    Thanks for the video. It is wonderful to see her coming back, after having surgery and all of that time off. I'm looking forward to seeing her at Nationals.

    This was great to see! A model in courage, Alissa embodies the saying that you never give up--despite the injury, despite being bashed relentlessly in the skating forums, and despite the intimidation of younger skaters moving quickly up in the ranks. I keep my fingers crossed that she makes it to Sochi and skates a fantastic program.

    Glad to see she's back. That lutz combo was a fail but everything else was pretty good considering. I agree she was rather slow, then again she's never been a fast skater. I would think that might score 54-57 at nationals: URed lutz landed on two feet, slow/tilted landing on loop combo, a bit slow in areas, but the interpretation, choreography and performance were all very good. A clean Ashley will score around 64-67, so there's a sizable gap there...

    I don't know how she'll hold up in the LP though. Her axel was good here but her jumps don't look secure yet...

    I love her skating. And she seems like such a nice person. Actually watching her makes me so nervous. I want her to do well, so does most of the audience. You could tell that the year she won her first Nationals. The audience was trying so hard to keep her 'up' after the first error

    Here's her program. I'm glad I can't see it well, but it appears it was on a Triple Flip

    :(
    Sad to see.
    It appears that her free skate music was "Gone with the Wind"

    Alissa appears to have landed 3L, 3Lz<, and 3T+2T before injuring herself on a 3F attempt. :(

    So sad. She was never making it to Worlds this year, but she could have gotten herself back in the mix for next years Olympic team and next season with a decent showing. I wonder if this is the end of her career, it will be impossible for her to make the Olympic team next year now probably.

    I was kind of worried about this. Hope she turns out to be ok! Wasn't it a bit soon to be competition ready at her level after a major surgery like that?
