Post ~ Figure Skating Season 2011-2012 ~

Well put on your skates everyone. The GP Series starts in three weeks

There have been a couple of Summer competitions already.
Mirai Nagasu has already won the B Senior comp in Germany: Nehelborn Trophy


Some good outings from the US men.

Jason Brown - Brisbane JGP

Joshua Farris - Poland JGP

Ross Miner

-----

Plus is it just me or Javier Fernandez is turning into a mini-Orser ?

Loving the new style

Ah, I can't believe it's going to be another season already.
I hope there's a new youngster for US ice skating. It's been dead for quite a while. Caroline Zhang..

Re: ~ Figure Skating Season 2011-2012 ~

Oh god! What in the world is that white thingie on his shoulder? I really want to see what becomes of Huyuru in a few years. A bit more refinement and better costuming, and he'll be Olympic champion material. Hopefully he quickly grows out of the"dramatic look at me " phace he seems to be in. It almost distracts from the beautiful qualities of his skating.

Anyone knows if we'll have the team competition at worlds this year? They should test the darn format before it debuts at the Olympics.
For now it looks like a battle between Japan and USA for Men's team final. I really hope it's four men per team instead of the rumored three men per team. It'll make things a bit more exiting.

The US has so many potential line-ups for 2014 is mouthwatering

My cable provider dropped Universal Sports. No Tara commentary for me. I'm gutted. I heard Goddess Mao won't be competing on the Grand Prix this year but I hope it's not true.

Universal Sports as in NBC-owned?

Skate America field is eh. Alissa Czisny is absolute love. At her age, most people consider retiring but she keeps on skating.

Re: ~ Figure Skating Season 2011-2012 ~

Yes, that Universal Sports. I am just disgusted thinking about it. I already missed most of the coverage of Gymnastics Worlds and now I'm going to miss practically the whole FS season.

I still can't stand Lysacek. Why can't he just leave us in peace?

She spent the summer working on triple-triple combinations and a triple lutz-triple toe which she's adding to her programs, which means, in her case, she'll end up either in 1st place or last place in the upcoming competitions.

She's on a list, but it's unofficial

Re: ~ Figure Skating Season 2011-2012 ~

I've never liked Alissa Czisny either. And I hated it when she lost us 3 spots to Worlds and said her result was "out of her control". Bitch, please. It was in her control not to fall 85 times. AGAIN.

Re: ~ Figure Skating Season 2011-2012 ~

Yeah, I didn't care much about figure skating after Sasha tried at Nationals for Vancouver and didn't qualify.
I also was really disappointed in Czisny with that situation, too, but it's not like Rachael Flatt helped either. I dislike Flatt so much. Everything about her was just average.

But Czisny's lines and spins are absolutely breathtaking.

Btw, Kimmie Meissner...talk about falling off the radar. Actually most figure skaters fall off the radar when their careers seem to be over

Re: ~ Figure Skating Season 2011-2012 ~

I wonder who's favorite with ladies this season. Yu-Na probably skip the season and so will Miki. Mao can be a mess and Russians are too inconsistent.

Unsurprisingly for the first GP of the season, The Men's competition was a flop.
