    Was she at practice yesterday? I didn't see her name mentioned.

    It's bad karma to wish Gold off the team. That can bounce back and hit the wisher's favorite instead.....
    I agree on both, but I can't help wishing that some of the other skaters would get credit for what they do- if they skate really well. I am not sure they will, and part of it is that Gold has pretty much locked up the spot. If Gold skates great, I have no problem with her being on the team; I just don't want to see her held up. From what I read, she is skating really well. Worried about Mirai though; no reports on her.

    I don't think she's there yet, but I'm guessing it could be a $$ issue. SP is TOMORROW, though, so hopefully she'll be on the competition ice today for practice.

    I hope she isn't having flight issues- but surely she would have tweeted about it.
    I have a coworker who got stuck in California on Sunday and the soonest they could reschedule a flight was Thursday (tomorrow). There were no rental cars or trains available.

    It is not arriving late.. She has been training in AZ at the same rink D. Razzano and he left yesterday afternoon. Maybe she was on the same flight.

    Don't you sort of have to be there? Aren't there some practice time restrictions leading up to the competition? Like: You can only practice during the official practices.
    DH - and that's just my opinion

    That rule only kicks in once you check in to the competition. It is actually a reason some skaters don't go to early practice ice- because if they don't check in, they can practice elsewhere.

    But no, you do not have to go to practice ice.

    hope it's her way of making a grand entrance, no pre judging for her before the event.

    He did also tweet that both Mirai (and Gracie) looked strong OUTSIDE of runthroughs (although it is much better to be strong in both)...
