    Even though I'm THRILLED about it and for him, Ryan Bradley, National Champion was the huge shock for me!

    This season as a whole had been full of shocking moments, so I don't think I could pick just one! The nominees are great though, but Alissa skating 2 clean competitions in a row would be a nice addition to the list!

    Abbott off the World team

    Although really, the whole US Men's World team - no Abbott, Rippon, Mahbanoozadeh OR Mroz - is pretty shocking.
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?

    That's definitley the most surprising. Nearly everyone believed that this year's title and second place would be between Rippon and Abbott, with Armin, Bradley and Mroz fighting for bronze.

    The results are kind of bittersweet. It's awesome Bradley, Dornbush, and Miner did so well, especially Ryan, but it's disappointing to see several favorites not even crack the top three.

    I agree with the U.S. men's world team. Totally unexpected medalists at Nats.

    Sarah's gold for sure. What a wonderful surprise. Great skating moment.
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    Results never shock me (unless really crazy), because ice is slippery.

    Music chocies do shock me.

    I don't know what shocks me more - Flatt switching music or EOE, or seeing the actual step sequence.

    "Sarah Myer's European Champion Gold"

    Yeah that was a suprise, a skater no one had ever heard of with a name that sounded exactly like another well known skater.

    It must be awkward for poor Sarah Meier, people are going to be congratulating her for this Myer girl's win and she has to correct them.

    No Abbot, Mroz or Nagasu in the World team is a very big surprise to me.
