gracie’s always missed jumps. in fact, the only times she’s gone clean were sochi team event and maybe her long at nationals? i think it’s her technique, not her weight. she needs a different technical coach to help her jumping. ugh. shallow & wrong.
I tend to think it’s nerves…she hits everything in practice and hasn’t messed up a short program in forever. It’s just the long that kills her when everything’s on the line. Sort of like Sasha who would have great shorts and then rough longs. But unlike Sasha she’s working with a psychologist so we’ll see what a year with carroll and without Olympic pressure has done.
Mostly I think everyone is just a bit off during off season, no ones gone clean all shows. Everyone has had good and bad performances including Gracie when she went clean during at least one of the shoes I know. I was worrying about Adelina but then I realized it’s pointless this early in the season when intense training hasn’t started yet you know?
