    I don't see anything in the COP that says the fastest skaters wins. As far as being held up a nationals, many believed she was held down, and should have placed over Agnes and Czisny (who also isn't the fastest skater around). She also won over Murakami and the mistake prone Agnes to podium at 4cc over some decent competition.

    She wasn't sluggish, she matched the flow of her music. I also thought her arm movements were very nice. Sometimes Gracie seems to fling her arms and it can be distracting.

    Mods feel free to delete. I was in a cruddy mood posting this.... I still believe what I said but its not really necessary to have a whole thread about it I suppose. Don't want to start a war. :p
