    Which young lady will end-up ahead of the other at US Nationals? Caroline or Felicia Zhang?

    I'd say that Felicia has the edge right now. Lighter, more flexible, with all of the necessary jumps. Felicia's focussing on the Pairs event takes the weight of expectations off her shoulders in Singles, so I think that she'll actually do very well in Singles (between 6th and 10th place).

    There's already a poll on this very subject here. However, given Caroline Zhang's most recent coaching change, maybe we should start from scratch.

    Doesn't Felicia only have a lutz (albeit a very good one), a (f)lip, and toe in her triple arsenal?

    I think it'll all depend on Caroline. I don't think anyone knows what to expect from her.

    I believe Felicia has 3s as well, though I am not positive. I know she doesn't have a 3lo yet, but at this point Caroline doesn't really have a lutz, so if anything, jump wise they are about on par. Plus Felicia's 2a is much better than Caroline's.
