    U.S. Women [#2]: The Unbearable Lightness of Beijing

    I personally would like to see a 3 time US National Champion crowned in Nashville and I am rooting equally for Gracie, Alysa and Bradie.

    U.S. Women [#2]: The Unbearable Lightness of Beijing

    Thank your for sharing! I just realized that the medalists at that competition include two of the last 3 US women to medal at the World Junior Championships!

    Alysa Liu Switches to Colorado Coaching Team

    I am sure it will be "cured" at Nationals (by judges looking the other way) but I don't think ISU judges will be as kind.

    NHK was like her sixth or seventh competition this season. Plus, Alysa has been globe hopping for these competitions...California, Italy, Germany, Italy, Canada, Japan... Maybe she was tired. She looked a bit slower and she was not going into the jumps with the same kind of speed (at NHK) that...

    U.S. Women [#2]: The Unbearable Lightness of Beijing

    Remember when Sasha Cohen tried (and failed) to do that (Qualify for the Olympics) at the 2010 Nationals (with no prior competitions)? It's very, very, very difficult (even for completely healthy skaters).

    Alysa Liu Switches to Colorado Coaching Team

    Thank you for sharing. It's interesting to hear that club (developmental) coaches saw her technical problems early on (but were kept away).

    ...but it was. She made huge strides in a relatively short amount of time. I have never seen her skate with more speed than she does this season. I don't understand why the Dad panicked and did not see that. Yes...compared to the Japanese and Russians, Alysa still has a long way to go, but she...

    U.S. Men 2021-22 season news & updates

    I don't see an enormous drop off...with new seniors like Naumov and new Americans like Paniot or returning Americans like Artur Dmitriev Jr. and you can never count out Tomoki and Jimmy who usually have their acts together by Nationals. The US Men's field right now (to my eyes) looks like the...

    Alysa Liu Switches to Colorado Coaching Team

    I think people are saying that this type of disruption so close to Nationals will weigh negatively on her chances. Realistically, the time until Nationals is very, very short. There simply is not enough time (left) to work on technique. The best a new coaching team could provide would be a...

    I am afraid that you may be right.

    The whole Lori Nichol/Lee Barkell thing only came about after Orser said no. Alysa went to the Cricket club (to try out) but it did not work out. All the (abrupt) changes since then just reek more and more of desperation.

    Orser (apparently) said no.
