Polina leads and looked great but as much as people claim she has improved the presentation she hasn’t but she hit when no one else did and deserved her lead.
Gracie Gold singled her first jump and received no credit for it missing one of the 3 jumps / jump combination in her SP yet still got a 62.50 and is in second place. The overscoring and gifts she receives is astounding. This is the short program and they held up her PCS to hide the fact she got not credit at all for a jump. She skates around for quite a bit of time between jumps and spins in this SP.
Tyler Pierce who even with wonky landings on her first 2 jumps should have been in second. Love the dress.
Ashley Wagner sits in forth after falling on her first jump. Typical Ashley Ms Inconsistent. I love the music just wish the words would go away. Thought she sold it well after the fall
Everyone else fell or cheated jumps and in some cases fell twice ( Not yet ready for prime time Chen) it was pretty much a mess for everyone but Polina
