I do hope that Adelina is back for sure, but I'll reserve judgement until the Free Skate to see whether it wasn't just a fluke or not.
I don't know if it's just me, but does anyone else feel that Lipnitskaya's flexibility is actually causing her programs detriment? The positions she can get are very impressive, but I feel that her choreographer is just throwing some of them in at random times for the wow factor which distracts from the rest of her skating.
I really don't like Tuk's new outfit. I preferred the all black one.
It seems to me that Eliza skates just okay under pressure. She had no pressure on the gp circuit until the gp final where she had expectations to win. Russian Nats is even more pressure and she falls. Olympics will be even worst if she even gets there from Russian Nats.
Julia is extremely talented and you can do a lot for her artistry not just showing her already visible flexibility talents
I wish she will drop Morozov soon as a choreographer and maybe switch to Tarasova

I rewatched her sp
not only were Julia's Ispin very straight right up but her spins were the fastest yet I have seen from her
no sasha cohen ?
this ia an interesting note of Julia Lipnitskaya's Role Models
http://www.goldenskate.com/2011/12/s...ian-nationals/The 13-year-old lists Italy’s Carolina Kostner and teammate Adelina Sotnikova as the skaters she looks up to.
“Adelina had some troubles with jumps this season, but she still keeps fighting till the end. It deserves a lot of respect,” she explained.

She is not my favorite of the current crop of Russian ladies, but I join the people who hope she starts skating well in Russia.
ETA: I also found it very enlightening to read what Julia said about Adelina. I'm happy she has that attitude
I love love love Makarova's SP! I would wish for a spot on the podium if it weren't for her LP.
Does anyone have an upload for Ovcharova's performance?
hep, her LP wont help her much this time, even if she gets a clean skate. still GOLD FOR KSENIA MAKAROVA ( so I wont jynx the real winner )
is this her ?
horrible sp music, the remix is just irritating and distracting
she grew and gained weight
