    She'll be up against Gao though, who has been doing great 3f-3t combos lately. I still think Adelina can beat Christina though if she skates well.

    There were overall 13 FALLS!! just in the last group.. Splatfest of epic proportions..

    Despite the gold, a very dissapointing debut for Tuktamysheva.. wish her all the best next time.
    And poor Yuki

    Cesario and Gong are assigned to JGP in Great Britain. With only 2 JGP spots left I Hope Siraj replaces Cesario now.. she has already a medal and still doesnt have a 2nd assignment.

    Goodness. Kristiene and Samantha each had 4 UR/DG in the LP, and was credited with one clean triple.

    I'm happy that Shion Kokubun won the bronze. She skated closest to her ability among the top competitiors -- aside from a fall on the 3R, she did about as well as she could do. I hope she does better than 14th at her National's this year. Since it's her last year of ISU junior eligibility, she might disappear from int'l competitions next year unless she gets assigned to a senior B.

    I really hope you are right. Aside from Nina, there was only one fall at JGP Courchevel in the last group. But here, there were 13 falls in the last group!

    Juniors are so unpredictable.

    All the more impressive that at 13, Caroline Zhang skated two clean programs (6-triple LP's) at all three JGP events and JW. Yes, she has all her issues, but at 13 she was an amazing competitor! I hope she comes back strong soon under her new coach.

    Not the best competition but Tuktamysheva did the hardest 3 jump combo! 3Lutz/2toe/2loop then she did a 3lutz again! Too bad about the 3 flip but maybe she will change where it is. Most surprising is falling on the double axel but it was at the end of the program.

    I think the USFS assigns girls like Cesario and Gong to the JGP to see how they fair there. Both girls are 17 and won't be eligible for the JGP for much longer, they both appeared to have improved a lot this summer, but the protocols at this event show that they still have a lot to work on, particularly with URs. Even though they managed to place pretty well at this event, their scores and protocols show a lot. Even Ellie Kawamura who made the JGPF last year did not get international assignments this season because despite her 3rd and 4th place finishes at her events, her scores and jump arsenal weren't all that impressive. If Kristiene and Samantha fair similarly at their next events, they likely will be given senior Bs or no international assignments next season. But if they can improve and put up really impressive scores, then they might get senior GP assignments next season.


    Someone like Nina who is only 13 and only received one UR on the back end of a 3t-3t combo and managed to outscore both her teammates who are 4 years older is also making a statement despite her only placing 5th at her 1st event. She's proving herself to be one to watch in the future, her protocols show her technique is sound and her high PCS show her basic skating is strong. She may have bad luck this season and not end up with a 2nd event, but she still made an impressive debut and the USFS can see that. If she keeps it up, she'll have a lot more opportunities to compete on the JGP and hopefully the SGP in the future.

    She does the double axel with her arms over her head.

    The names listed for USA on the GBR and GER entry lists are placeholders only. The actual assignments will eventually be shown on the USA website:

    It's probably because they are just young and inexperienced Juniors. As someone else said, these competitions can be completely unpredictable. One week, not many falls. And the next week, a ton of falls!

    It is sad to see, that so many ladies failed to make their minimum score. I don´t know, who are the potential candidates for european and world championships, but i think Sabina Paquier (ROU) must have the minimum score for the SP and FP from last years JGP but the score from Mirna Libric (CRO) is very crucial, hope she make it at her next JGP!

    The Japanese girl is just really tall, Liza's probably about 5ft which is a lot taller than last season.

    Hi! I've been reading this forum for a while and now I've decided to write for the first time. I just came back from Brasov, from the grand prix. Liza had a rough program in the long, but this is only because of the nerves. She had a great warm-up, but then her turn came, and before the music started she was already taking big gulps of air, she was very nervous. She looked very sad at the end. I will upload her long program tomorrow. About the other girls: Rosa was in tears after her program.She had a disastrous warm-up. I though that the american girls were very good, even if their scores were low. The girl from Japan who took bronze has a very very sweet smile, she was very happy after her program and she was all smiles on the podium.
