    someone stated she reminded her of sasha--no--
    the jumps are cleaner--some of the artistic moves--probably--but jump wise she is better.
    for a Junior skater --i am impressed, but she is still a junior--

    TRT3 (Turkish TV) showed the OD! It will be showing more of JGP Istanbul later.

    Monko & Khiavalin moved ahead of Pushkash and Guerreiro. Both did Russian ODs. Cannuscio and Lorello also did a Russian themed OD, and are not ahead of Mitchell and Islam in 3rd. M&I had some kind of problem in the program, so I hear (I tuned in just before the last group)

    What did the girl from India do? My sister is in Pre-Juv and she got 16 pts for a 2.5 minute free! Did she do any doubles?

    Kiri Baga doesn't have any jumps above 3S/3T?? Not exactly a future star you can place your bet on.

    Huh??? She only got so good short program scores, because she lands the Triple Flip in the short programs!

    I heard all the hype so I went to check the protocol. She fell on the only 3flip attempt in the LP and it was downgraded. The other jumps she tried were 3S, 3T and 2A.

    She doesn't seem to have the jumps yet.

    Hello everyone, I'm Kiri's rather biased sister, but just to clarify some of the questions.

    She's been competing all season with lutz and loop, but took them out due to consistency. She has received credit for all of her triples save triple axel in competition this season. I expect at least one, if not both will be going back in the program as soon as she's home.

    That's cool to hear. I do like her style, but was surprised to find the limited triples she tried here. Good luck to her.

    Yay Courtney

    As Kiri's coach's biased sister, thank you Courtney for clarifying Kiri's enormous talent. Too often people forget that these are CHILDREN and allow themselves to voice opinions based on conjecture and what they have "seen" reading protocols, or only reading other peoples blogs.
    Kiri, like all of the skaters we judge in these forums, works very hard to achieve her potential and should be treated with respect. This is a marathon, not a sprint. How many great skaters have we all seen "peak" too soon. Kiri is in this for the long haul, and has many years ahead to polish the triples, lets just give her and all of these other skaters the space to do this. I know her coach is well aware of Kiri's skill and her age. That's why Kiri's programs are beautiful and showcase what she does so well.
    Signed Lorie Charbonneau's sister.
    PS Kate Charbonneau's proud aunt as well!

    Russian young girls are good this season! I was surprised when I found that Sofia Biryukova's coach is Viktoria Volchkova. Remember her?
    As for Kiri, wow, she is fast! And I like her, but she needs her lutz and loop to compete with Murakami and Shelepen. Anyway, JGPF will be interesting!
