    Anna Shershak was skating great except for a silly fall on nothing and on her last jumping pass, a 2A. She doesn't have the content to compete with the top skaters, but she's really well-rounded, polished and elegant. I look forward to seeing more of her - hope she can get the harder triples. Lovely technique.

    What a debut from Evgenia Medvedeva! She's adorable. She's very childlike in her skating still, but it works for this program. Seven clean triples, including a 3S+3T combination. Unfortunate fall in her step sequence, but it was a minor blip. She's a good spinner too.

    I think the main reason why Shershak still has only 3T and 3S is her height. She is a lovely skater, I really like her posture and elegance. Korobeinikova finally got harder triples in her arsenal and even 3F-3T, maybe Shershak also will

    Not Liza's best...landed her money combo but fell on a 3F and very disruptive fall on the 3S. Best interpretation so far, though.

    Not really worried about her, though - she's a fighter.

    Wasn't there another Medvedeva skating recently? Darya perhaps?

    Yes but she broke her leg at one point. They are not related, I don't think. Darya M. skated out of St. Petersburg.

    I guess they are not related, but Darya also skated at Tutberidze's group and then her family moved to Petersburg.
    Liza looked tired, the beginning of the season was very intense for her. I hope she will get some rest and show her best at Junior Worlds

    Agree, Shershak has very good lines and presentation for a 13 year-old. And even though she doesn't have the harder triples, she does do the 3T-3T, which is very impressive and really helps her in short programs. And at least she already has one major vertical growth spurt behind her, so learning those harder triples in the next couple of years will be a slightly smoother process than for girls who have to re-learn them with a bigger body and re-train their muscle memory at 15-17. I was very impressed with her on the JGP and hope she continues to improve. If she doesn't get those jumps, maybe she could consider ice dance, her elegance is quite impressive for her age.

    Medvedeva is great too, and she only just turned 12 (I think the closeup showed her adult teeth haven't all come in yet, adorable!). She shows a lot of joy when skating and has nicer presentation than some older girls. And to think she didn't even "qualify" for nationals earlier until Tutberidze complained in that interview.

    Are Natalia,Alsu and Maria the same age as Evgenia,aren't they? If so,why the other girls don't participate in Nationals? I guess they have enough talent to debut here.

    Aside from Medvedeva, none of the ladies in this group skated anywhere close to their potential :( Hope the next group is better.

    I am assuming you are talking about Alsou Kayouma and Natalia Ogoreltseva. I don't know who Maria is. The issue with Evgenia is that she skated in senior Russian Cup competitions and placed well enough (2nd in one event, winning the LP ahead of Makarova) to qualify for Nationals. However, she was not invited and skters who finished behind her (like Anna Ovcharova) were invited over her. That's what Tutberidze was complaining about.

    I don't think Ogoreltseva and Kayoumova placed as well in the Russian Cup and I'm not even sure Ogoreltseva competed as a senior.
