    I don't even know what to do - to cry or to laugh. This statement is just ridiculous, sorry.

    And it would be a disaster for Polina.

    Look, she's 14 y.o., but it's not like Tara Lipinski in her 14. Polina is psychologically immature, she's a very shy girl, her coach is like mother to her. And to break their team NOW would be a mental disaster for Polina. So please leave her alone, let her develop her skills according to her mental development, let her take her time.

    Agree. And we even have an example. When Arina Martynova was 12-13 y.o., people called her our future and new Slutskaya. But then she left Gromova...

    Well of course she shouldn't leave her coach then. But to be honest, for the coach to allow Polina to become so messy in many areas, and to have programs like that. That's not a good sign for the coach's ability to develop Polina as an artist. Don't get me wrong I don't expect a young skater to look like Cohen. But there should at least be a little development there.

    in regards to Polina, she isn't the only diva in the making--in fact she is NO Different than Ashley, Mirai, Rachel, Sasha, Sarah, Mao, Yu-na, Joannie, caroline, carolina --they all divas in the making. Just watch all theirj posture and how they word and skate, smile both on and off ice.
    but as far as skating --both Angela and Polinas was sloppy--angela more--should have had downgrades in the long.

    Wow here we are talking about a Jr Ladies event in which there were no Canadians entered and yet you still get in a dig at a Can lady!

    I think we've already established that this was a misinterpretation, and, if not, to give her the benefit of the doubt...
