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?

I’m so mad I was going through posts about The Ice 2014 on goldenskate and one person who wrote a review(that seemed intent on bashing everyone but Patrick) mentioned that Gracie has gained weight during the off season and that’s why she missed jumps at that show like????

How dare you comment on a skater’s weight in a sport where eating disorders are a major problem? Using a figure skater’s weight as an insult is low, I don’t care how much you hate that skater. 

This sport has enough problems of people thinking that you have to be a certain weight/height to be successful in the sport and it’s bullshit and damaging to every young skater especially those who are reading comments like that.

I find that talking about racism is way easier with english language. I’m french and I remember as a kid, missing words for what I was dealing with. First of all, you don’t have the words poc and race. I mean, you could still use them, but they are they equivalent of slurs in french language (the…
