    Toronto Tidbits

    What a busy place! Reported by Tony Wheeler:

    • Speculation that YuNa probably not competing this season?
    • Adam Rippon "promising" and doing a quad loop consistently well in practice
    • Christina Gao doing huge jumps


    This season is getting more and more interesting all of the time!

    Well, it's quad toe loop.

    Sorry for the misquote! It might be wishful thinking

    Not a surprise, but I do hope she competes. But if she feels unmotivated, the best thing to do is to take a break.

    Nice! I hope he doesn't get hurt, though.

    Adam's jumps look gorgeous...Abbott was doing 3x/3t, no quad...Gao reeling off 3toe/3toes with ease

    Go Adam!!
    I'll be sorry if YuNa doesn't compete. Lord knows she doesn't have to prove anything if she needs a break though.
    This season is going to be without so many of my faves! No B&A, no Lamby, no Plush, now maybe no YuNa and my precious Johnny!

    Yu Na not competing this season doesn't surprise me at all. Poor thing had the pressure of an entire country on her shoulders this past year. Let her have a very easy year to recharge and just have fun w/her skating. Then come back refreshed and ready to take on everyone again.

    I was really impressed by what I saw of Adam on CSOI this spring. Very much looking forward to watching this young man develop.

    Thanks to all of our Toronto tidbit posters!!

    Yay! What about the cute little Korean girl Min-Jung Kwak? I wonder if she's gained some muscle and has worked on rotating her triples more so she doesn't get downgrades.
