scratching at the light
Pretty sure Canadians aren’t quite as delusional as some might think.
I know you like to diss Canadians (there is a pattern here…. ) but I don’t know of ANYONE who thought this was a normal result.That was a nice, 24-hr delusion for our Canadian friends. I knew it wouldn't last, based on what I saw out of Gabby at the Barrie sectional competition a couple weeks ago. I was hoping Maddie would bounce back from her disastrous Nebelhorn FS, though.
I am watching the CBC Main channel coverage now that I recorded yesterday and not even the commentators suggested that Maddy or Gabby would win.I know you like to diss Canadians (there is a pattern here…. ) but I don’t know of ANYONE who thought this was a normal result.
Well whatever she was thinking in the interview she’s now thinking differently about. Hope she has a better outing at her next GP.I was LOL when in the interview Daleman said she didn’t need to work on anything technically. I’m sorry but other than the 3-3 her jumps are a hot mess. Very loose air position and a leg wrap.
Her next one is in two weeks in GBR. Doesn't give her much time to work out the kinks.Well whatever she was thinking in the interview she’s now thinking differently about. Hope she has a better outing at her next GP.
Ruiter was so stylish & musical, in addition to technically capable. She was ridiculously under-marked, IMO…but remains in the first group.Miclette had a great skate and is second after the short program at Ice Challenge! She easily got the worlds TES minimums. Full rotations.
Kaiya Ruiter just missed the worlds TES minimums by a little over a point. She was also given credit for rotation and even did her triple triple in the second half. She didn't get a lot of GOE.
Sara-Maude Dupuis got the 4CC minimums but didn't have a great skate, stepping out on her triple toe and managing a triple loop double toe combo.
Interesting that Miclette also had a huge PCS advantage compared to the other Canadians in the event.
Is Miclette straight from juniors? Did she not have enough world standing points or something to qualify for a senior Grand Prix?
She had a JGP earlier this season, so she wasn't eligible for the GP.Or even a host spot at skate Canada since they only had two entries?
She was on the JGP last year and this year and went to jr worlds. She did not have a score high enough to get a Grand Prix invite and couldn’t be a host pick as she already did a JGP this season.Or even a host spot at skate Canada since they only had two entries?
I agree I think Ruiter was underscored in the SP. To the judges that overlooked her in the SP, she proved she belonged in the top group in the LP.Ruiter was so stylish & musical, in addition to technically capable. She was ridiculously under-marked, IMO…but remains in the first group.
Miclette skated much later and was perfectly marked.
BOTH wore gorgeous red dresses.
I thought she always did have a beautiful smile, and expressed her joy in skating (as she did in that piece). From her description of the leg injury (and scar tissue problem), it's no wonder it took her a long time to come back.Glad to see that Kaiya now has a beautiful smile!
