She had the worst free skate I can imagine. Blew several jumps; wandered
around center ice looking lost for  a while - obviously forgot where she
was. Just awful. I felt very bad for her. Her technical program was pretty
bad too. No surprise for a Canadian lady, she had looked fine in practice.

I agree her free skate was not good. After the initial hard fall
on the triple lutz, she seemed very unnerved and had weird mistakes.
I actually began to think she had injured herself or had an
equipment problem.

But I disagree about the short, though. It was clean except for
a 2 footed triple lutz. The double axel from a counter was
very strong and her death drop was huge. I thought she did a
fine job. This is the third event I have seen her at and it was
the first time I saw her land the triple lutz.

        When I first saw the long program this summer, my immdeiate
reaction was that there is toooooo much stroking and not enough connecting
moves.  I oped that it was just because the program was new and still
needed the finishing touches added.  Looks like it is still that way.

My biggest overall impression with Angela was that she had several extremely
disrupting breaks before her jumps.  Twice I thought she had forgotten her
choreography and then realized that she was just setting up for a jump.
Just before her jumps, she would drop her arm to her sides, lose her
posture, and concentrate.  I found this very disruptive.

However, I really enjoyed watching her in practice....

Nancy is going to be doing "Gershwin On Ice," at the Colonial Theater in
Boston over Thanksgiving (U.S. dates) weekend.  Also in the show are
Tiffany Chin, Alexandr Fadeev and the Kuchiki sisters.

Karen is married and her name is now Kelly.  She coaches at Lake Placid
and also did choreography and put together the Miracles of Gold show
there this past August.

"No surprise for a Canadian lady"? Umm....there have been a few instances
in recorded history where Canadian ladies have skated rather good
freeskates :)

Yes, but it has become rqather a pattern for the Canadian Ladies nerves to give
 out on them in competition I'm afraid. Like Amy, I enjoyed her practices very
 much and felt very bad when her competition programs started to unravel.
