    Best exhibition ever?

    I had in mind the first but you know thread drift. Whatever!

    I propose Lambiel - Please don't stop the music. Sheer crazy drunken disheveled Astairean perfection. https://youtu.be/0MVF0aL7bq4

    Tarasova/Morozov Cheer Thread

    They do emotion so well! All they have to do is pour a little of that into their competition programs!

    Oh thanks. I forgot about the harness quads! And missed the 3A.

    It doesn't change your point but I assumed @bardtoob was talking about Ouriashev, Gracie's coach before she went to Carroll.

    Should The Minimum Age That Ladies Can Compete As Seniors In Singles Be Raised From 15 To 17/18 Years Of Age?

    Odd that concussion isn't mentioned. Curious that the date range for increased injuries is 1982-2003 since they looked at literature up to 2017. They apparently missed the whole new quad revolution?

    I don't think a few bad apples spoiled anything. Why would they, if Yuzu has nothing to do with the craziness? They certainly don't make me change my view of Japanese fans or skaters. Anyway, you don't owe me another post. :) You should write what you feel called to write. I was just opining...

    I'm not opposed to big dreams. I'm concerned about the combination of unrealistic dreams and mental fragility.

    See 4:50 here where she states that Beijing is the goal. https://www.olympicchannel.com/en/video/detail/gracie-gold-on-mental-health-there-s-this-pressure-to-be-perfect/

    Right but making the Olympic team is a huge deal. It seems like an unrealistic goal based on what we've seen so far. Of course she's not just any hopeful skater, so it's not unthinkable, but she's way behind her competition just domestically.

    ? She says her goal is to get to the 2022 Olympics. I'm not sure why people keep saying her goal is just to see what she can do or whatever.

    @Mad for Skating, to me this post is more about the fan war of Fanyus vs Chen fans than it is about the rivalry itself. I was disappointed because when I saw the title, I thought Yes! great idea!! Maybe I'm atypical (I don't know) but I tune out the fan wars. I didn't even know there were Chen...

    No PDAs for Zagitova

    Hotarek is twice her age and a fairly tall guy in a bevy of cooing women. Of course he's going to be more at ease.

    No PDAs for Zagitova

    It doesn't seem to be a meet and greet but an autograph session. There's no time for her to chat with fans without holding up the line as far as I can see. In any case, I totally agree that expecting her to be warm and friendly with a stranger who hugs her from behind is nuts. That young girl...
