Bailey had a rough day at competition.I thought she must have really skated poorly to have placed the way she did. However, when I watched the video ( after avoiding it for almost a week), I was surprised to find that it really wasn’t that bad.
There were some strange bobbles and issues with her spins, but for the most part, she skated well. She had some very nice ordinals and some very bad ordinals (as did almost every skater in her group of 7). It’s easier when the judges agree, even if they agree on a lower placement.
