Some posters in the "Which new lady can break up the top 5 at worlds" thread (link below) seem to agree with me that Gracie Gold is currently challenged in PCS. I have concerns about her Olympic potential based on the merits of her programs this season. I have not had time to ponder what should be worked on, but the nuances of skating appear to be lost on her. Does she need a new choreographer or a lot more than that?
She is young, but not so young that she should be as flavorless and wanting for grace as she is-- not if we expect her to make a name for herself in the top five or six of the world. Her skating skills are already marvelous, so I wonder: Does she need a Russian coach? An action plan to improve her style and comfort with choreography? What are the opinions and suggestions?
