    I really liked Kanako's SP!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vs2JgYgEHwM

    Her 3T+3T's style is just perfect!!

    This is the most exciting Junior Grand Prix Final by far! Best arena too!!

    I wish her and Polina good luck in the FS!!

    I don't think anyone in the Sr Ladies competition landed a ratified triple-triple (Yu Na came close; Joannie did it in SEQ but no one else even tried)! And look at these youngsters...

    My money's on Christina Gao for top American finisher....her "The Hours" SP is absolutely gorgeous. And so is her LP! Love her choice of unique music.

    Kudos to the top 3 ladies for landing 3-3!

    Once you watch it, it's not surprising that the Americans are in the last 4 places after the SP...The Russians and Murakami had CLEAN skates with higher technical content and more interesting programs. Love Kiri and Angela and their programs but they had big mistakes here. Gao was clean but dull and has weak skating skills. Kawamura just doesn't have the technical content.

    Ovcharova's SP is fabulous! So much energy and enthusiasm and musicality! Her jump technique is iffy, but she's got wonderful presentation. Take a hint, Rachael, That's how you do a jazz program. Probably my favorite of the night along with Murakami, who was also fabulous.

    Shelepen's jumps are amazing - she needs to work on presentation but she's doing really well otherwise.

    Makarova is really looking good to take that second Olympic spot for Russia.

    I don't think its surprising at all. I did think Baga would do better but well I was thinking she might have difficulty in the long anyways.

    Russia is really looking to be the next Japan in ladies. They have a lot of very strong Juniors. Two amazing ones will be eligible for the JGP next year.

    It will be tough to make the JW team in Russia. Barring disaster, I'd imagine that Shelepen will get a spot. Makarova could go to the Olympics and maybe not JW. Ovcharova, Agafonova & Biryukova all have a shot to make the team.

    Both of the "amazing ones" began to practice 3 axels, so it could be even more interesting next year...
    And there are even more talanted girls in Russia. Nikol Gosviani for example, or Daria Medvedeva
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXPT1...eature=related
    She is only 12 (born in 1997) but has 5 triples (clean lutz and flip without edge calls), Mishin is her coach. Like her, she is so funny and surely can dance ))

    I hope Polina, Anna and Ksenia will have strong performances tomorrow!
