The scores from IJS give a very interesting comparison between all the competitors that transcends events, levels and age groups. Granted there are different requirements and restrictions for different levels, the scores still provide a relative standing of all the competitors. In my eyes, the skater with the highest total score in a program ought to be proclaimed our true National Champion!
Congratulations, Alexandria Wong!

And don't forget--there was a brand new element created at Nationals this year. The Chow Yinger. I can hardly wait to see who copies this move next year. You know that someone will. LOL.
