I'm still not an expert, but is that 3A fully rotated or not (despite the fall)?
You're allowed to be a quarter turn short, but it looks like she's just under a 1/2 turn short.
Per her Instagram, Gabby is training the triple axel as well and wants it for next season.

Who will win the 3A battle?

Who do you think will land a clean 3A first? Gabby or Alaine?
Beauty. I'm really optimistic about Gabrielle's coaching change. I hope it will be good for her.
Realistically, Gabby since she doesn't struggle with UR's and she has a lot of power in her 2A. But I would be surprised if she can actually do it given her wrap and her tendency to lose control.
I'm also very optimistic with Gabbi's coaching change. Even from that clip her landings look more controlled, yet she still has the power.
Chartrand triple lutz triple toe from Lake Placid - I don't know if it's from practice or from a competition SP or what. How do the rotations look?
That looked pretty good to me. I've never heard of this young lady before. I hope to see more of her skating.
did anyone see Alaine Chartrands short.......if so how did she do?
Well Alaine won the Lake Placid Championships.
I didn't see Alaine Chartrand's programs in Lake Placid but heard she tried 3A in her SP (downgraded/fell) and her 3Lz+3T combo was clean (likely the Instagram clip she shared ). She scored 54.66 in SP and 99.71 in the FS (no details received).
Where did you hear about the 99.71 FP?
Well that she won is good news, and is still working on the 3A, and yippee for the 3Lz + 3T combo; but hopefully she will be able to grow the scores over the course of the new season and really be able to throw her hat into the top 12 international ring!
Canada now has some really decent and promising female skater's on the rise, especially exciting since Osmond may be returning to active competition this season so 2016 nationals will be a nail biter for sure. GP momentum may really count for something.
Chan returning helps the WTT cause this season, and perhaps along with Nam, winning 3 spots next year on the men's side as well. Hopefully with a strong showing this year by the ladies, the men, Plus our already great pairs and dance teams, Canada will be able to win 3 spots in Boston for each discipline for the following season...Dream big if you are gonna dream, LOL! But honestly IMO this is the first time in quite a while that Canada likely has the necessary depth of talent in all the ranks to actually pull it off and realistically field a full team in the very near future. As Corey Hart would sing "The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades!"
probably neither of them.
I'm not trying to be a B or anything - i just want these ladies to focus on clean performances and staying competitive against the field.
Yes, I know i'm being annoying with this post.
I totally understand. Clean comes before adding more.
There is more than one way of looking at that...Often practicing and focusing on a harder element improves the problems with ie U/R and falls on the lesser elements.
You work on higher and faster and keep pushing to get the 3A and find the U/R disappearing on your other jumps...as well sometimes your head gets in the way of
what your body wants to do and in focusing on the 3a might stop the nerves on the other jumps...ie there is more than 1 way to accomplish goals and a good coach
uses all the tools in their arsenal.
Actually Timbuk3 sang that song, lol.... Corey Hart was famous for "Sunglasses at night". I have no idea why i know this, lol...
Gabrielle posted a triple axel attempt on her Twitter
Seems like it will need a lot more work. From what I see it seems like an over-rotated 2A
Selena Zhao article titled "Canada’s Zhao prepares for senior debut": http://www.goldenskate.com/2015/07/selena-zhao/
She is scheduled to debut her senior programs at Skate Detroit and the Quebec Summer Championships.
Somehow I missed the news about Selena Zhao's switching to Canada. Good for her. A friend of mine emigrated from China to Canada with her parents and became a Canadian citizen. She has been living in the US for over a decade but considers herself firmly Canadian.
Sarah Tamura has gotten one of the coveted JGP spots: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/ind...y-discussion-thread.95490/page-3#post-4555659
Tamura scored 117.65 at Skate Detroit this past weekend but did not qualify for the Junior Ladies Final FS on Saturday due to being in a tougher qualifying group. The 9 Canadians that qualified for the Final (12 competed) were:
FS RESULTS (combined total scores with qualifying FS scores in brackets on right):
90.48 Megan Yim, Champs International Skating Centre of BC (Canada J7) 126.80 [84.63]
89.38 Emy Decelles, CPA Baie-Comeau (Canada J10) 126.25 [83.13]
87.15 Kim Decelles, CPA Baie-Comeau (Canada J13) 114.46 [81.82]
79.91 Marjorie Comtois, Centre Jeunes Performance Plus (Canada N7) 118.14 [77.34]
77.01 Alexis Dion, Minto SC (Canada) 124.34 [76.06]
74.49 Alicia Pineault, CPA Varennes (Canada) 116.02 [79.60]
67.50 Tilyna Pawer, Champs International Skating Centre of BC (Canada) 99.70 [61.22]
64.45 Amanda Tobin, Burlington Skating Centre (Canada) 131.68 [84.83]
56.63 Jessica McHugh, Connaught SC (Canada) 99.55 [66.26]
I thought Zhao would get the first ladies spot. I saw Tamura skate her free skate in Detroit but I do not recall what she did.
I was very impressed with both Decelles sisters in Detroit - they have solid triple flip and triple lutz (though they didn't land all of the ones they tried). I would say they and Zhao are the front runners for the other three JGP spots (unless someone shows potential to make the final, I don't think anyone will get two assignments). Megan Yim didn't attempt a triple flip in the free skate I saw, so I don't know if she has one and if that would make it harder for her to get an assignment since the flip is the required jump in the short program this year.
A maximum of four Canadian ladies can be assigned to the junior portion of the Autumn Classic. I wonder if they will select skaters not chosen for the JGP.
I would love to see Grace Lin on the international scene again this year - she's so beautiful to watch but really fell apart in her free skate after she won the short program in her group. Skate Canada has some tough decisions to make with so few spots in junior ladies this year
I wonder if Zhao will opt for Sr. B assignments over JGP with so few spots available? I think the other thing that Skate Canada has to take into consideration is making sure that competitors have opportunities to earn the minimum scores for Jr. Worlds. I know there is only one spot, but it would be good if all options are open to Skate Canada - e.g. if someone like Megan Yim didn't get sent out to any internationals, then had a dominant win at Canadians, Skate Canada might not be able to send her (or at best, would have to squeeze in an international between the events). So for that reason, I hope that the Autumn Classic spots go to skaters who aren't on the JGP to give more skaters a chance at getting the minimums.
Kim Decelles, Selena Zhao, Kim DeGuise-Leveillee, Grace Lin, and Sarah Tamura all have the minimum scores for Jr. Worlds from last season. Yim was too young to compete on the JGP last year, so she obviously doesn't have the minimums and Emy Decelles competed on the JGP last year without getting either score. Larkyn Austman is just missing the SP score, but I'm not sure what her status is.
Based on Skate Detroit, it seems like getting Yim and Emy Decelles an opportunity to earn the minimums should be a priority...perhaps it's worth keeping an eye on Comtois/Dion/Pinneault as well.
That's what I'm thinking. Selena Zhao landed six triples in the Skate Detroit Final on Saturday (2A+3T, 3F+2T, 3Lo fall, 3Lz+1T+1Lo, 3F, 3Lz, 3S) to place 4th with 98.12 points (ahead of Osmond who had a rough 2nd FS). I found a copy of Selena Zhao's Final round FS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6uvuVCyLchY
A pre-Skate Detroit article on Kaetlyn Osmond and a link to her qualifying round FS video from this past Thursday is in her fan thread (post #265 onwards): http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/ind...-canadas-sweetheart.91812/page-9#post-4553487
Megan Yim's jumps in her winning Final FS to "Clair de Lune" (piano version): 3T+2T, 3Lo, 3Lz, 3S fall, 2A fall out, 3T, 2A fall out.
Emy Decelles (2nd) and Kim Decelles (4th) both landed 3F in their Final free skates. Emy's jumps in her "An American in Paris" FS were: 3Lz, 3F+2T, 3S fall, 3F fall, 3T turnout, 1A, 3T+2T. Kim's ballet FS: 3F, 3Lz hands down, 3S to 1A, 3Lz fall, 3S, 3T, 2A+2T.
Discovering Megan at this event was great. I like her lines , decent jumps. I then realized she's coached by Joanne M. Let's hope her development continues. Hopefully she does disappear and bow to pressure like so many of J.Ms students (besides K.R).
