Like a small boat on the ocean...
Simone and Gracie, IMO, are very different stories. Simone, at the top of her sport, knew that mentally she had to walk away. That is an enormous amount of self-awareness and maturity.I thought Gracie's SP is quite good, the step sequence could be more detailed IMO. I'm sure she could up the level there if she chooses. It could make the piece even more special.
In these days of the internet both raising up and ripping down Simone Biles, it strikes me as something similar to what Gracie has been through. She didn't have a remarkable free skate. It's not worth ripping her effort though.
What I don't get with Gracie is why is she doing this to herself? It seems clear that she is in the same place she has been for years. It is hard to watch this once-gifted woman skate like she is a junior just coming up the ranks.
