Wishing I could go back to the Lake Placid JGP
ETA: https://www.ifsmagazine.com/bradie-tennell-chasing-second-u-s-title/Media call [Jan. 8]: @bradie_tennell says she's feeling good heading into the U.S. Championships, with no major changes to training or programs: "I'm really just cranking away on my programs & the daily grind." Elements will be same as Golden Spin: triple Lutz-triple loop in FS only.
That sounds like a great season for her. No need for shake ups or major changes. Just keep doing what you planned and all that preparation will make her ready for competition.
Oh I missed it! Was shocked, thinking "she's leading with Russians" forgetting the overlap of Euros and Nat'l! I need a re-wiring with my cable channel for NBCSPT breaking up! NBC will be about the same when in Prime Time hitting the networks, but can check it out simultaneously on my laptop clearly! Easier yet their performances are downloaded onto You Tube! The thing is I'd rather see a full telecast with "the girls!"Congrats to Bradie, leading in the SP. She handled it well, and a few notable others didn't. I really don't like Bradie's SP costume. Her original costume worked better with the music. Those sparkly blue stripes just do not work. But Bradie worked it. Kudos!
You need NBC Sports Gold, or else look up skate order and see how many performances you can find on Youtube and watch each performance in the skate order. One of the problems with Youtube though is sometimes music is muted and every performance is not necessarily loaded.The thing is I'd rather see a full telecast with "the girls!"
How is she underestimated and underappreciated? She came out of nowhere last year and was the national champ and on the Olympic Team. She wins medals at GP events and does well internationally, scoring 4th in the LP last year at worlds and beating a 2x world champ and Oly Silver Medalist earlier this season. She has a reputation of never making a mistake even though she has made mistakes. What more do you want for her? She is not hyped like Gracie or Alysa or even Karen Chen but she really shouldn't be.In my excitement over Vincent Zhou I almost forgot to post my cheers for Bradie, after the 2019 4Cs SP!
I hope that both she and Vincent will WIN this competition. Also love the Japanese and Mariah but I want Bradie to claim the gold and solidify her reputation before 2019 Worlds. She is the most underestimated and underappreciated US National champ (2018) in recent memory.
The jumps have regressed this season. Not sure why, and although that SP plays to her strengths, she is still below many other top skaters performance-wise.What is going on with Bradie. She was such a sure thing, and now she gets under-rotation calls............she is behind Bell today for heaven sake.
