2014 NHK Trophy: Ladies Review & 2014 Grand Prix Final Standings

2014 Trophee Eric Bompard: Ladies Review

After last week's disappointing competition, I could hardly wait to see what the ladies at Trophee Eric Bompard had in store.  The level of competition was higher than last week but it wasn't the throw-down I expected it to be.

The Russians are back on top

2014 Cup of China: Ladies Review

At first I figured they should've renamed this competition Splatfest was that bad!  Luckily by the end a few skaters were able to step up and save the competition from being a total waste of time.

Apparently Julia missed the ceremony...hmmm
