    2axel-3toe-2toe (looked fully rotated)
    3lutz
    3sal-2toe
    3flip
    3loop
    2axel

    Polina Korobeynikova:

    3flip-3toe
    3lutz
    3flip
    2axel-3toe
    3loop (lost footing on landing and stumbled out)
    3sal-2toe
    2axel

    Wow 3Fx3T and 3lutz?
    She could barely do one just in her last event.

    3lutz - fall
    3flip-2loop
    3loop - bad fall
    3toe - 2-footed possibly?
    2axel-2axel sequence
    3flip
    3lutz-2toe - awkward landing on lutz, falls on toe.

    She'll drop from third...

    Yeah, they looked good too. High and solid.

    3loop
    3flip-2toe-2loop
    2axel
    3lutz
    2axel

    Looks like both Polinas will be on the podium.

    Wow,Shelepen has planned 7 triples with two triple lutzes and two triple toes and additionaly two double axels. No senior lady this year has such a difficult technical content planned in her program. Very impressive and she almost did it all beside that fall on the back end of her second triple-triple combination. By the way, it's very rare to see a lady program with two triple-triples. I think there were just several ladies who did it. Slutskaya, Arakawa, Asada, Meissner, Kostner, Ando... any other? I'm not counting Hughes' Olympic FS since both triple-triple would've been downgraded had she skated under COP.

    If triple-triple sequences count, then Lipinski did it and possibly Bonaly. They both had triple toe-triple sal sequences plus an actual 3-3 combination in their programs.

    I'm pretty blown away by the technical content too. It's much more difficulty than you typically see in a senior level comp. Is women's skating going to see some major advancement here, or are these skaters going to lose some of this ability when they get older? I'm hoping the former. I wouldn't want to see this (juniors out-jumping the seniors) become a trend.
