Going into the Free Skate:

1. Mirai Nagasu

2. Sasha Cohen

3. Rachael Flatt

Last year's champ Alissa Czisny is in 7th place. For the Olympics the USA can only send 2 ladies.

I was rooting for Rachael Flatt but my guess is even if she makes it to second place the USFSA will pick Sasha Cohen to go.

Thank goodness.

She's one of the reasons only 2 ladies will advance to the Olympics this year..... <_<

Here are a few neat performances I found that feature Kristi Yamaguchi and Rudy Galindo when they were competing as a pair at Skate America in 1986, Nationals in 1989 and Nationals in 1990.

I did.

Sasha Cohen should have just stayed happy with her Olympic Silver Metal, she just embarrassed herself tonight....

Is anyone suprised? Before there was Alissa Czisny there was perennial choker Sasha Cohen. My mother should be happy, she hates her. I had read articles saying she proved her doubters wrong. laugh.gif

Congrats to Rachel and Mirai.

I'm also happy Beatrise Liang was able to move up.

Who wants a pewter medal? It's a consolation prize and then to be on the podium with the people who did medal is just rough.

Frank Carroll coaches both Evan Lysacek and Mirai Nagasu. Frank Carroll is considered one of the best figure skating coaches in the world. He was a student of figure skating legend Maribel Vinson Owen.
