So she skates first today which is probably not so good for her PCS but might be good for her nerves. Definitely will be good for my nerves because I’ll be at the hairdresser when she’s on the ice. Good luck Kaetlyn!!! Go out there and !

Hmmmm, I did see Camerlengo, Christy Krall, and Kathy Johnson marching. Except for Camerlengo, none of the other coaches were near their skaters.
Good luck to KO and the team tonight.

That was great!!
AWESOME! KO made it look easy! How can you not love her?
That was terrrific......so happy for her to nail everything.........questioning her marks though........does anyone think they were a tad low?
Here's hoping she can skate lights out in her singles comps....just like she did here.

Excellent skate from Katelyn. Great competitor
Good for Kaetlyn. Apparently she nearly bested Wagner.
I have not seen her skate yet (just the scores), but she has score about 65ish PB.

Great skate a little low in marks but she did her job on the team.
Wonderful skate for Osmond and if she'd skated later she would have been ahead of Wagner. But still a good placement. Julia's seemed a little high to me - thought she was off balance in places. I would have had the top two reversed.
She lights up the rink! I just love that girl.
Kaetlyn i s lovely and quite a performer!
I agree she did a great short program, no sign of nerves at all! I think if she hadn't skated first she would have ended up a little higher.. Hope she has a great experience..

It seems Kaetlyn was chosen for a random doping test earlier in the day:
I'm all for anti-doping, but I don't think they should be unexpectedly testing athletes on a competition day before the competition. Elite athletes likely have their competition days meticulously planned out. Luckily Kaetlyn had the mental fortitude not to be thrown by a change in schedule, but some athletes likely would be affected by it.
Anyway, great skate from Kaetlyn.
So proud of Kaetlyn for laying down a good Team short and with the 3rd highest TES of the ladies field (WTG); this bodes well for her future and hopefully another good solid skate in the team free might actually help to bump up her PCS in the individual competition, where the pressure will ease off so she can skate with more of her usual abandon and joy!
I really Loved Carolina's SP, it was much better than the sp she skated at Euro's, yeah, yeah, I know it was not as technically difficult as Lip's, but it was a beautiful and MATURE performance that I really appreciated.
Julia a tad overscored but not unexpected, given as both she and Sotnikova have been hyped for OLY medals all season! Folks want to believe a Russian would be no better than bronze, citing PCS would work magic for older contender's - not quite true when you have home ice advantage and some major politicking going for you. Writing for Kostner was on Euro results wall...Asada landing 3a looking to be more risk than reward now, but ya never know she could get lucky now that she has had an OLy runthrough to get out the jitters, and for Mao it's not so much about just adding to her already impressive hardware collection; it is all about winning gold this time. Thus staying in her comfort zone, skating safe to guarantee a medal just doesn't cut it, it's all or nothing.
Still a major obstacle to the ladies crown has yet to be seen and the individual events may hopefully be a bit more evenly scored, but I think at this point Queen Yuna may be the only lady capable of holding off the Russians.
In any case I am even more impressed by Osmond now given the circumstances...
