Having Nationals over this time of year seems so likely to have the top seniors who competed on the grand prix circuit find reasons to bail... a shame... they should be able to... and more importantly, should have to... put it on the line with the rest of the competitors so reputations alone don't determine who gets slots at Europeans and Worlds... just MHO

B&S should be happy to be this close to G&B and R&S, the CD is usually their weakest phase.

Standings through 2 groups of ladies:
1. Shelepen 142.34
2. Martynova 129.17
3. Gozeva 126.59
4. Kozyreva 125.17
5. Artemyeva 123.30
6. Ievleva 120.31
7. Tarasova 120.07
8. Gershkovich 106.80
9. Vasfieva 103.08
Shelepen did 3F+3Lo+2Lo but fell on an underrotated 3Lutz. Great skate otherwise. Tarasova also had a good skate. I think she had the best program and musical interpretation so far, despite the fact that she skated to "Carmen". She was charming. but she doesn't have the technical goods yet.

Any infos about Ksenia DORONINA?

3. Katarina Gerbolt 149.31
4. Nina Petushkova 145.18
5. Alena Leonova 143.49
6. Polina Shelepen 142.34
She has mono.
Sotnikova won! She scored 160,55 (105.62 in LP). She fell on her 3F but landed 2A+3T+2T. Her artistry is wonderful, she has lovely balletic style and great spins! Tuktamysheva won the LP (110.06/159,88) with the performance of the evening - 3T+3T, 2A+2A+SEQ, two triple lutzes. She is so mature for her age. Please save these girls from the puberty monster! They are fantastic. Sotnikova has fantastic spins and artistry and Tuktamysheva's jumps are so big and her basics are
Gerboldt was a distant third, 149.3. Petushkova was fourth. Leonova had a meltdown - 2 falls and 1A - and was fifth. Shelepen rounded out the top 6 but I think she was 3rd or 4th in the LP.

I have consulted the IceNetwork video schedule, and saw no mention of the Russian Nationals on it. I take that to mean that we are free to post URLs for YouTube, etc., from that event, when we find them, to share with others. If I am incorrect in thinking that, I hope the moderators will tell us that as soon as possible; it is my fond hope, however, that we shall not be breaking any laws by sharing availability of this skating.
Unfortunately, I haven't seen YouTube vids yet.
The only one I recorded so far:
I don't do ladies, in any country! But will be recording pairs, dance and mens in the next two days, and will share all at the fs vids site, and some at least at Youtube.
