  • Triple lutz + double loop
  • Triple flip awkward attempt to pull off a combo

2018 US Nationals Senior Ladies Preview

As a group, these ladies have won 68 national medals.  They hold one World medal, seven Four Continents medals and seven Junior Worlds medals.  They won 2 medals on the Grand Prix and three medals in the Challenger Series along with one JGP medal.  The entire podium from last season is returning, along with the 5th, 7th-10th, 12th, 14th-16th, and 18th place finishers.  The entire Junior Ladies podium from last season along with the 8th place finisher have qualified to compete as seniors.  The short program will be held on Wednesday, January 3rd with the free skate on Friday, January 5th.

 To be competitive internationally, they need short program scores above 70 points, free skate scores above 139 points, and overall scores above 206 points.  None of the US ladies rank on any of the top ten international lists this season.
Bradie Tennell held on to a spot in the top ten up until Skate America.  She is the only US lady to score over 200 points internationally this season, and has done so twice.  At Skate America, she landed a triple lutz + triple toe in her short program with a solo triple loop and double axel in the bonus.  She had all Level 4 spins with Level 3 steps.  She earned all positive GOEs worth 5 points and had program components in the low to mid 7s.  Her free skate had a triple lutz + triple toe, triple lutz + double toe + double loop, and a double axel + triple toe.  She earned Level 4 on her spins and Level 3 on the step sequence with all positive GOEs netting her 10 points.  Her program components ranged from the mid 7s to mid 8s.  At Lombardia Trophy, she also had a clean short program but her program components were lower in the high 6s, but this was an earlier event in the season.  Her free skate was mostly clean with only a slight negative GOE on her solo loop.  Again, her program components were slightly lower.
Ashley Wagner rebounded from a 7th place short program at Skate Canada to take home the bronze medal.  She hasn’t had the greatest season this year as she then had to withdraw from Skate America during her free skate due to an infection.  She is reusing two old programs, yet did not skate them cleanly.  After Skate America, she decided to scrap her free skate and has gone back to La La Land which she had choreographed over the summer but never competed.  It is a big gamble, but she didn’t have many competitions under her belt anyway and her programs weren’t seeing huge successes.  Her short program had an under-rotated triple flip + triple toe and a double axel and triple loop (under-rotated) in the bonus.  She earned Level 4 on one of her spins with Level 3 on everything else.  Her program components were in the low to mid 8s.  Her free skate has a triple flip + triple toe, double axel + double toe, and triple loop + double toe.  She under-rotated three jumps at Skate Canada, the triple + triple, triple loop, and triple loop combo, while receiving an edge call on her triple lutz.  She received Level 4 on two spins and Level 3 on the other and her step sequence.  Her program components were in the low to high 8s.  At Skate America, her combination and solo jump were under-rotated although she did earn Level 4 on everything in the short program.
Mirai Nagasu has a big wild card in her programs this season: the triple axel.  She has been hitting it consistently in practice this week, but she is not known for being able to perform under pressure.  She has quite the perseverance, however, considering that she is very much in the mix for the Olympic team and she last qualified for the Olympics 8 years ago, and won her only US title 10 years ago.  At Rostelecom Cup, she stood up on her triple axel attempt but it was under-rotated.  She also fell on a downgraded triple flip + triple toe and under-rotated the triple lutz in the bonus.  She earned Level 4 on her spins and Level 3 on the step sequence with program components in the mid to high 7s.  In her free skate, she again stood up on an under-rotated triple axel, and landed a triple flip + triple toe and triple loop + double toe + double toe.  She under-rotated a triple salchow and her double axel + triple toe.  She received Level 4 on all of her spins and Level 3 on her step sequence.  Her program components were in the mid to high 7s.  At NHK Trophy, she received full credit for the triple axel in her short program, but under-rotated her other two jumps.  She again stood up on the axel in the free skate, but it was under-rotated.  Otherwise, the rest of the program was clean with program components in the mid 7s to low 8s.
Karen Chen has seemed a bit unsettled this season after winning her first national title last year.  She has changed her free skate several times this season, and when most skaters would be settling in and fine tuning their programs, she seems to be starting from scratch.  She has never medaled at a Grand Prix event, and while she finished 4th at Worlds last year, she did not skate cleanly, and benefitted from several other skaters imploding.  Her short program at Skate Canada included a triple lutz, triple loop + double toe, and a double axel.  She earned Level 4 on two spins and Level 3 on the other spin and her step sequence.  Her program components were in the mid 7s.  In the free skate, she had a triple lutz + double toe but under-rotated her double axel + single loop + triple salchow and only had two combinations.  She also under-rotated a triple flip with an edge call, under-rotated a triple lutz, and had a downgraded triple salchow.  She earned Level 4 on two spins and Level 3 on the other spin and step sequence.  Her program components were in the mid to high 7s. At Skate America, she went for the triple lutz + triple toe in her short program, but it was under-rotated and her triple loop was downgraded.
Angela Wang did not compete on the Grand Prix, but had two Challenger Series assignments.  Her short program has a triple flip + triple toe and a double axel and triple loop in the bonus.  She received Level 3 on two of her spins and the step sequence.  Her program components were in the low to mid 7s.  Her free skate has a triple flip + triple toe + double toe but she had problems with her other two combinations in Finlandia Trophy, singling the axel in her triple loop + double axel sequence and under-rotating her triple flip + double toe.  She earned Level 4 on one of her spins and Level 3 on the the others with program components in the mid to high 7s.  At Tallinn Trophy, she missed her triple + triple in the short program but earned all positive GOEs worth 5 points.  Her free skate was a bit of a mess, missing her opening combo after a fall, singling a loop, doubling a salchow, and under-rotating and falling on a planned triple flip combination.
Courtney Hicks just missed the podium at Skate Canada.  She landed a triple flip + triple loop in her short program in addition to a triple lutz and double axel in the bonus.  She received Level 4 on her layback spin and Level 3 on everything else.  Her program components were in the high 8s to mid 7s.  In the free skate, she hit a triple flip + triple loop and double axel + double toe, before botching her triple lutz + single loop + triple salchow combination (which she also missed at the Autumn Classic International.  She also under-rotated a double axel.  She earned Level 4 on two spins with Level 3 on the other and the step sequence.  Her program components were in the mid to high 7s.  At the Autumn Classic International, she only had a triple + double in her short program but she hit Level 4s on all of her elements.
Mariah Bell had her first trip to Worlds last season, finishing 12th.  At Rostelecom Cup, she under-rotated the triple lutz + triple toe in her short program but did land a triple flip and double axel.  She received Level 4 on her spins and step sequence with program components in the mid 7s.  In her free skate, she landed a triple lutz + triple toe, double axel + single loop + triple salchow, and a triple flip + double toe.  She received negative GOEs on two of her jumps but had Level 4 on two of her spins and Level 3 on the other spin and the step sequence.  Her program components were in the mid 7s.  At NHK Trophy, she under-rotated her combo in the short program and doubled her flip, receiving no credit.  She re-arranged the layout of her free skate with some different combinations, opting for a triple lutz + single loop + triple salchow.  She under-rotated that combo and a solo triple flip, falling on both, and missed her opening triple + triple, having to tack on a double toe later in the program.  She received Level 4 on her layback spin and step sequence with Level 3 on her flying camel spin.
Emmy Ma is the lone US lady to win a medal on the Junior Grand Prix this season.  Her short program includes a triple lutz, triple flip + double toe, and a double axel.  She earned all positive GOEs at JGP Latvia with program components in the mid 6s to low 7s.  Her free skate includes a triple loop + double toe + double loop, triple lutz + double loop, and a triple flip + double toe.  She only has three jumps in the bonus, and no combinations.  She under-rotated her solo loop and double axel at JGP Latvia.  Her program components were in the mid 6s to mid 7s.  At JGP Poland, she missed the second half of the combination and fell in her short program but earned Level 4 on all of her spins and Level 3 on the step sequence.  Her program components were in the high 5s to mid 6s.  In the free skate, she under-rotated her first combination and had the second downgraded.  She did earn Level 4 on all of her spins and Level 3 on the step sequence with program components in the mid 6s.  At Golden Spin, she had errors on all of her jumps in the short program, under-rotating her lutz; under-rotating, downgrading, and falling on her combination, and under-rotating her axel.  She had a rough opening to her free skate at Golden Spin with her first two combinations under-rotated, but the program was clean after that.
Starr Andrews holds the top score from qualifying events this season.  At Pacific Coast Sectionals, she landed a triple toe + triple toe in her short program, with her triple loop and double axel in the bonus.  She earned Level 4 on all of her spins and the step sequence.  She had all positive GOEs worth nearly 7 points and program components in the high 6s to mid 7s.  Her free skate has a triple toe + triple toe, triple loop + double toe + double loop, and triple salchow + double toe.  She has five jumps in the bonus, including two combinations.  Her only error at sectionals was popping a solo loop into a double.  She earned Level 4 on her step sequence and spins with all positive GOEs worth nearly 10 points.  Her program components were in the mid 6s to low 7s.  At Golden Spin, she upgraded some of jumps in her free skate, going for a triple lutz + double axel sequence and replacing one of the double axels.  However, she under-rotated two jumps and got an edge call on her lutz in addition to falling.
Tessa Hong set the second highest score during qualifying.  Her short program is backloaded with all of her jumps in the bonus.  Her solo triple lutz was a bit messy and her triple flip + triple toe had the first jump under-rotated and the second downgraded.  She earned Level 4 on her spins and step sequence with program components in the mid 6s to mid 7s.  Her free skate is set up to have most of the jumps in the bonus, including all three combos, but she seemed to rush a bit on her first combo and missed the mark to receive credit for the bonus.  Her triple lutz + triple toe was downgraded but she did hit a triple flip + double toe and a triple salchow + double toe.  Everything but the triple + triple received a positive GOE, netting 8 points.  She earned Level 4 on her spins with program components in the high 6s to mid 7s.

Mirai Nagasu has the highest base value for jumps in the short program with 24.70 points.  This is thanks to her triple axel, however, she has not landed it cleanly with positive GOEs in any of her programs this season, and it has often effected her other jumps.  Courtney Hicks and Tessa Hong both have short programs with a base jump value of 20 points.  While Bradie Tennell’s short program base value is 19.54 points with five ladies having a base value equal to or higher than hers, she is the only one to skate a clean short program all season with positive GOEs.

In the free skate, Nagasu again has the most difficult short program planned with a base value of 48.79.  However, even with the advantage of the triple axel, the rest of the program is not as difficult as some of the other competitors.  Tennell has a base value of 47.72, Hicks has a base value of 47.91, and Bell has a base value of 47.41.  Again, Nagasu hasn’t hit a clean triple axel and Hicks and Bell have yet to skate clean programs.

Wagner starts off at a disadvantage on the technical side, with a total base value 12 points behind Nagasu and 6 points behind Tennell.  She also has been plagued with popped jumps and under-rotation calls in the past.  So while she needs to skate as cleanly as possible to keep up, she has an advantage on the program component side.  Only she and Tennell have received 8s on program components this season, and Wagner’s have been higher.  Wagner and Tennell have only skated head to head once this season, at Skate America.  Wagner had problems with most of her jumps but still had all 8s on her program components totaling 33.68 points.  Tennell had a completely clean program but her program components only totaled 29.38.  If Wagner skates clean, expect her program components to be even higher.  However, Tennell’s PCS scores have been rising throughout the season and she will be skating in front of a national audience.

In a field that has been wildly inconsistent over the last few seasons, my money is on Tennell who hasn’t made a mistake yet.  This will be the true test though, to see how she handles the pressure of skating cleanly at nationals when Olympic team spots are on the line.  With a lot of the attention on Tennell and not having skated great this year, Wagner is in her favorite spot as the underdog having to fight to earn her place.

 

My podium predictions:

Gold: Bradie Tennell

Silver: Ashley Wagner

Bronze: Mirai Nagasu

Pewter: Karen Chen

This looks to be a very competitive event, especially for so early in the Junior Grand Prix season.  As competitors generally will at minimum need an average of two bronze medals (usually better) to make the Junior Grand Prix Final, this could be make or break for these ladies for the rest of the season.

Japanese, Korean, and Russian ladies completely dominated the junior circuit last year, taking home all the spots in the Final, most of the medals, and most of the top scores.  This event seems to be no exception.

Eunsoo Lim is the top returning competitor from Junior Worlds.  She placed 4th with a personal best score of 180.81.  She won a bronze medal on the Junior Grand Prix last season, and steadily improved with each event.  She took home the silver from the Asian Open, a B event, a few weeks ago, and scored just a few points shy of her personal best.  Although she is the reigning Korean Senior Ladies Champion, she is too young to compete at the Senior level and will miss the opportunity to compete in her home Olympics in 2018.

Anastasiia Guhanova won two gold medals on the Junior Grand Prix last season and the silver medal at the Junior Grand Prix Final, where she briefly held the record for a Junior Ladies free skate score.  She has an astonishing personal best score of 194.57.  However, she finished 7th at Russian nationals and did not get the opportunity to compete at Junior Worlds.

Mako Yamashita took home two bronze medals from the Junior Grand Prix last season, but she also missed out on Junior Worlds, after finishing 16th at Japanese nationals.  She placed 4th at the recent Asian Open.

Trying to break up these countries dominance on the medal podium will be two veterans and one relative newcomer.

Loena Hendrickx did not compete at any junior level events last season, but she did finish 7th at Europeans and 15th at Worlds, earning Belgium a spot in the 2018 Olympics.

Lea Johanna Dastich finished 8th at Junior Worlds last season, where she set new personal best scores in all segments of the competition.

Starr Andrews placed 12th at Junior Worlds after stepping in as a substitute.  This will be her Junior Grand Prix debut, but she did win gold at Golden Bear, a B event, last season.  She is the reigning US Junior Silver Medalist.

Gold: Anastasiia Gubanova

Silver: Eunsoo Lim

Bronze: Mako Yamashita

Andrews ready to shine in Kansas City

Starr Andrews is a bit of a skating celebrity.  She is 15 now, but at 9 years old she skated a program to Whip My Hair complete with Converse style spats over her skates and hot pink hair extensions.  The video went viral, received millions of views, and Andrews was interviewed on major media outlets.  It wasn’t long after that she started to make a splash on the nationals scene, winning the Juvenile Pewter medal in 2014 and finishing 6th as a novice last season.

Some of the things to notice about her skating include the soft, fluid use of her arms (perfect for skating to Black Swan) and the intensity with which she delivers her performances.

She earned her first international assignment this season, traveling to Croatia to compete in Golden Bear where she won gold.  She returned home to earn a silver medal at Pacific Coast Sectionals in junior ladies to qualify for nationals.

It is evident in her performances that she is a fighter and does not give up.  She has big goals for nationals this season and seems poised to have her moment in the spotlight.

How did you get involved with skating?

I watched my mom skate when I was little.  I wanted to get on the ice with her because it looked so fun. When I was given the opportunity to finally skate, I loved it!

How would you describe yourself as a skater? 

I would describe myself as interesting, emotional, and outgoing.

Tell me abut your programs this season.

This year I kept my short program to Pink Panther because I love it so much.  I wanted to keep it and add more difficult elements to make me more competitive.   My long program is Black Swan and is my absolute favorite!  It has depth, drama, and intensity.

Tell me about your life outside skating.

I have a cat, a dog, two sisters, and a brother.  When I’m not skating, I like to spend time with them.  I also like to draw in my spare time when I’m not doing homework.

What is the most difficult element for you in your programs? What is your most favorite element to complete? 

The most difficult element is my triple flip. My favorite element is double axel + triple toe.

Last season you didn’t have a triple flip or lutz but you have both this year. What was the process to add those this season?

I tweaked my ankle mid-season so it was a little difficult to do toe jumps on my landing foot. Now that I’ve healed, I’ve been working on the flip and lutz to become more consistent.

You were a YouTube sensation receiving over 44 million views and landing mentions in the Huffington Post. How do you think that has affected you in your skating career? 

I am happy that the “Whip My Hair” video has brought recognition to skating that it can be fun as well as technically solid.  To have such an impact on people from all over the world makes me feel that maybe even I can make a difference in the sport.

How do you balance your desire to be creative and show a different side of yourself with your skating with the demands of competitive programs?

It is good to have different type of programs even if it is not your typical flow.   I like programs that are challenging and unconventional because that is just who I am.  I like different genres of music that allows for diversity and expressions full of passion.

You earned an international assignment to Golden Bear earlier this season where you won gold. What was the experience like? 

I had a great experience at my first international.  The environment, the culture, and the beautiful scene of Zagreb just made me thankful to have the opportunity.

Last season I noticed your connection to the music and your performance quality, which was reflected in your international component scores. Does that come naturally to you or do you have to work on that element of your programs? 

The components come naturally, but I still have to work on them because it is something that I can always improve on.

You have an impressive triple salchow + triple toe + double toe in your program.  How did that come about? 

I work hard to get that jump consistent and it is now one of my best jumps.

In an addition to the technical strides you’ve made this year, you have great spins, routinely earning Level 4, and you received a Level 4 on your step sequence at sectionals. How do you balance training the jumps while also working to achieve the highest levels on the non-jumping elements? 

I’ve made sure that everything in my program is the best that it can be so that I can get extra points even if I make a mistake.  My coach also makes sure that I am doing those elements to the best that they can be.

Have you made any changes to your programs for nationals?

 No changes in my program.

What are your goals for nationals?

My goal for Nationals is to become Junior Ladies National Champion and to be sent to Junior Worlds.

Is there anything else you want people to know?

I want to people to know that if you work hard you will get results and you will feel very accomplished and proud of yourself.

2017 US Nationals Junior Ladies Preview

As a group these ladies have won 10 nationals medals.  However, no one in this field won a medal on the Junior Grand Prix this season.  The 8th and 11th place finishers from last year’s nationals are back competing here.  The novice 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 6th place finishers have moved up to compete as juniors.  The short program will be held on Wednesday, January 18th with the free skate on Friday, January 20th.

To be competitive internationally, these ladies will need to have triple + triples in their programs, preferably one in the short program and two in the free skate.  The only ladies scoring in the top 10 internationally are from Russia or Japan.  Top scores internationally are 61+ points in the short program, 120+ points in the free skate and 180+ points overall.

Starr Andrews had just the 4th best total score in qualifying competition, but that is not fully representative of her capabilities.  She received an assignment to Golden Bear, an international B event, where she won the gold medal with a score over 170 points.  Her free skate at sectionals had a triple salchow + triple toe + double toe, double axel + triple toe, double axel, triple lutz (singled and edge call), triple flip, triple loop, and triple loop + double toe giving her a base jump value of 46.31.  She received Level 4, Level 4 and Level 3 on her spins with Level 4 on the steps.  She earned 3 points from GOEs and received program components ranging from 5.50-6.13.  Her short program has a triple toe + triple toe, triple loop, and a double axel (singled) giving her a base jump value of 17.84.

Ashley Lin set the 5th highest score during qualifying, although her score was just slightly lower than what she set at JGP Slovenia earlier in the season.  Her free skate includes triple loop, double axel, triple flip + single loop + triple salchow, triple lutz (edge call at sectionals), double axel + triple toe, triple flip, and triple loop (singled and intended combination) giving her a base value of 45.83.  She earned Level 3, Level 4 and Level 3 on her spins and Level 3 on the steps.  She earned an impressive 6.5 points from GOE and had program components ranging from 5.65-6.20.  Her short program includes a double axel, triple flip + triple toe (downgraded and doubled) and a triple loop giving her a base value of 18.51.

Alexia Paganini has the top score from qualifying and finished 6th at JGP France this season.  The reigning Novice Silver Medalist has a double axel, triple toe (doubled at sectionals) + triple toe, triple lutz, triple loop, triple loop + double toe, triple salchow + single loop + triple salchow, and double axel in her free skate giving her a base jump value of 43.90.  She received Level 4 on all of her spins and Level 3 on her steps.  She earned 2.5 points from GOE and 5.10-5.70 on program components.  Her short program includes a triple lutz + triple toe, triple loop and double axel giving her a base jump value of 19.54, the highest of the event.

Nina Ouellette has the 6th best total score from sectionals.  She won the Novice Bronze Medal last season.  Her free skate includes a triple lutz + double toe, triple loop, triple salchow + double toe, double axel, triple lutz (singled), triple salchow and double axel + double loop (singled) + double loop giving her a base value for jumps of 39.99.  She received a Level 4 on all of her spins but only a Level 2 on her steps.  She earned 5 points from GOE and had program components ranging from 5.38-5.94.  Her short program includes a triple lutz + double toe, triple loop and double axel giving her a jump base value of 16.03.

Kaitlyn Nguyen set the 2nd best short program score of the season.  Although she is competing as a junior here, she is not old enough to compete internationally as a junior.  She was assigned to the Golden Bear competition as a novice where she won gold.  Her free skate includes a triple lutz + single loop (under-rotated at sectionals) + triple salchow (under-rotated), triple loop, double axel + triple toe, triple flip + double toe, triple lutz, triple flip (fall), double axel giving her a base jump value of 47.68, the highest of the event.  She earned Level 4, Level 4 and Level 3 on her spins with a rare Level 4 on her step sequence.  She lost 2.5 points from GOE and her program components ranged from 5.00-6.06.  Her short program includes triple lutz + triple toe, triple loop, and a double axel, giving her a base value of 19.54, also the highest of the event.

Emmy Ma hasn’t qualified for nationals since 2013, but she has some of the top qualifying scores this season.  She has the 3rd best overall score set at sectionals, and she improved her score by nearly 4 points over regionals.  Her free skate includes a triple loop + double toe, triple lutz, triple flip (fall at sectionals), double axel, triple loop (under-rotated), double lutz + double loop + double loop, and a double flip + double toe giving her a base jump value of 37.39.  While she has one of the easiest jump layouts of the top competitors, with mostly double jumps at the end of her program, she has backloaded them into the bonus, giving her a few more tenths of a point.  She excels in other areas of her program, earning all Level 4s on her spins and step sequence and 3.5 points from GOEs.  Her program components range from 5.65-6.30, the highest out of any of the ladies here.  Her short program includes a triple loop, triple lutz + double toe (under-rotated), and double axel giving her a base jump value of 16.03.  While there isn’t as much risk in her program and she’s much more likely to skate cleanly, she also doesn’t have a lot of room to make mistakes as her technical score is significantly less than many of the other ladies in this field.  She has been very consistent this season, but hasn’t skated a clean program yet, so there is still room to grow.

Haley Beavers was a bit of a surprise last season, taking home the Novice Ladies title.  She came into the event with no top 10 short program score and was barely in the top 10 for the overall score.  In fact, I didn’t even mention her in my preview for nationals.  While her jump content would make it difficult for her to reach the top of the podium, she’s definitely a dark horse to reach the podium if she can find the same fire in her she showed at nationals last season.

None of these ladies put out a clean free skate at sectionals, so all of them have room for improvement.  With the more difficult technical programs, there is more risk and room for error, however, the US ladies have proved this season that they are falling behind the Russian and Japanese technically.  They need to be going for the most difficult combinations they can muster and still pull off the high level spins and give a compelling performance at the same time.  It is a tall order to ask of such young skaters, but it is required to even have a shot in the top 10 at the international level.

I think what this event is going to come down to is who can skate the most difficult program, the most clean, and it’s likely there will still be some errors as many of these ladies are just moving up from the novice level and have limited international experience.  A lot of this content is new for them and it will take some time for all of the pieces to gel.  But the biggest factor is going to be who has the other pieces of the puzzle to hold their scores up and give themselves the freedom to make a mistake here and there and not give the whole program away.
