Alissa Czisny has made a rebound for the ages, winning the women's title at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships on Saturday night.

The 21-year-old, who just last year finished a disastrous ninth, wasn't perfect, falling on one jump and watering down another. But her elegant program was still superior to the highly touted up-and-comers who were supposed to turn this nationals into their coming out party. Czisny finished with 178.06 points, easily beating reigning world junior champion Rachael Flatt.

Caroline Zhang, the 2007 junior world champion, was third.

The United States can only send two women to the world championships in Los Angeles in March, where results will determine how many spots a country gets at next year's Vancouver Olympics.
