    Thanks, Rosaleen!

    Sweden in the top three? How unusual & nice! Happy for USA & Russia, of course, but to see a 'new' country in podium shot is extra-special.

    Frau, here is a quote from an article I translated last season from Russian about the German Junior GP:
    Among the scantly represented child pairography, I was most impressed by a Swedish pair Angelika PYLKINA/ Niklas HOGNER, especially its girly half. Beautiful and passionate "Swedish match" did triple jumps as easily as some of the single skaters did butterflies on the ice. Since the honorable Scandinavian country hasn't been noted for such almost since Ulrich Salchow, I decided to do some heredetary digging into Angelica's family. Since the pair's coach shares the last name, I went to her. Turns out the simple Swedish last name Pylkina hides an international sports master, a student of Ludmila and Nikolai Velikovs Nelly Chervotkina, who in pair with Victor Tesley was quite a bright star on the Soviet skating sky of the 80's. Accordingly, she raised her daughter by the Soviet system. As one movie character said, albeit on a different subject, "Mastery cannot be drunk away".

    Thanks for your notes, Rosaleen.

    Good to see that Namiotka/Coughlin went for the throw 3loop even though she fell. Throw 3loops were landed by Seitz/Moyle, Vasilieva/Smirnov, Vlassov/Meekins and KrasBez; Pylkina/Hogner's had an error on the landing. Pylkina/Hogner are the top returning pair from last year (5th at 2005 Junior Worlds), and I expect any of the top 6 can medal on Wednesday. Moyle/Seitz and Namiotka/Coughlin are new teams this season, and both of the American female partners have never competed in junior internationals before this year. Russia's Vasilieva/Smirnov is a new team, too.
