Both Adelina and Liza had to change their combos for Jr competitions because the rule this season is to have a solo 3Lz in the SP. It's amazing both skated clean considering they had to change their 3-3. Good job! I'm happy for both girls
the news clip of the Russian team shows elizaveta's triple triple, just wonderful http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dVNEIBgRLQ
Here are my notes from yesterday's pairs practice (only watched the second group).
Yu/Jin Yang: The quality of their elements and skating really stood out in this group. They were almost flawless the entire practice, IIRC the only mistake they did was that she fell on a 2A. They did several nice 3twists. Several SBS 3t. Some nice throw 3l out of a difficult entry. Several throw 3Sals. SBS 2A sequence (his 2A is much bigger than hers, and her second one sometimes looked a little UR). They were also much faster than all the other teams. She is scaringly thin!! Also did some very nice lifts. Should win this easily today!
Fedorova/Miroshkin: Were my sentimental favorite. I had seen them live at the JGP in Innsbruck already and loved them. She is sooo tiny and just looks like a 8 year old when she walks past you, but she is adorable! Practiced a lot of single jumps first (2A, 2f2t), then tried some throws and twists. She fell on the throw 3Sal a couple of times but then got it done. Their runthrough was just cute. Their circus/clown program is so nice and suits them well, they really make it work. Both of them get 100% into character and I couldn't take my eyes of them during runthrough. Their SBS Biellmann spins are quite impressive. Can't wait to see this in competition today with costumes on
Dolidze/Ivanov: She is so tiny also lol. I have to admit this is the pair I watched the least because I was focusing on the other two. I saw them doing SBS 2A and they were practicing a throw 3f or lutz, can't remember exactly. She fell a lot but I also saw some that were ok.
Off to the arena now, hope I can get in for practices. Managed yesterday but apparently practices are closed to the public, maybe I am lucky again today! Will keep you posted.

Notes from ladies' practice today. I only took notes of the last group. They totally rocked the practice, lots of 3-3 and a lot of good jumps!
Sotnikova only did steps and footwork today. She has such nice movements and holds her positions much longer than the other ladies on the ice today. Marked her jumps in the runthrough and left the ice straight after, without doing a single jump. I wondered if she is injured or something but she looked totally fine doing steps only. I guess she took it easy today and wanted to rest?
Tuktamisheva is a jumping machine. This girl is insane. From the moment she got on the ice till the very end, all she did was jump. Wrote down: 3l, 2a3t, 2lz3t, 3lz3t, 2lz(popped)3t, 3lz, 3lz3t fall, 3lz3t, 3f, 3f. Runthrough: 3lz3t, 2lz, 2l, 3s2t2l, 2a tano. Did more 3f after runthrough. Missed two or three 2a3t attempts but got it done in the end. She didn't practice any spins or footwork.
So Youn Park also had a good practice, her jumps look very solid and she has nice technique on them. To my eyes, they all seem fully rotated. She did 3s, 3s2t2t, 3f, 3lz2t, 2a3t. Runthrough: 3lz2t, 2a3t, good speed, 3sal2t2t, 3sal, 3f. Did 3t3t afer runthrough.
Zi Jun Li: Her jumps just look effortless and she is very consistent on them. 2a3t, 2a3t2t, 3s2t, 3f3t, 3f fall, did two more perfect 3f3t. Had a perfect runthrough: 3f3t, 2a3t2t, 3flutz, 3sal2t, 3f, 3l, 2a.
Risa was consistent on her jumps as well, but most of the seemed UR to my eyes even from where I was sitting. Had a weird fall on the 2a at the beginning of practice. Did 3f and 3lz but with legwrap and UR. Saw a nice 2a3t that did not look UR to me. Runthrough: 2a3t, 3lz2t, 2a.
Anais was struggling a bit with jumps and between all those ladies doing all kinds of 3-3s she seemed kind of lost. Saw 2a2t2t, 3sal2t. Runthrough: 2a, 2a (df). As always, her spins are amazing and her program looks interesting. Can't wait to see it in competition.

So Adelina pretty much blew it :(
Zijun Li won the techincal score, 11 points higher than Adelina. This is so sad, I really thought she was on the right track after nationals. Aside nationals, all her international competitions have been disappointing. She is much better than this. Hope she can overcome this mental thing or whatever is happening to her
Liza's score isn't impressive either, but a good comeback for her after nationals. The 3F is becoming her nemesis which is a shame. And I believe, from the clips posted, she is having a growth spurt.(I may be wrong here).

I have soft spot for Adelina and hoped she would win here too but good for liza winning and Zijun's consistency improvements
growth spurt ? I dont think Liza grew an inch maybe a bit of weight
I hope Adelina gets back her full confidence or else
Julia Lipnitskaya will win Junior Worlds
Adelina is very talented and its disappointing she underperforms

leave no stone unturned
111 is not a bad score, it is just not her season best, I wish I could see as many 111s in the forthcoming Euros!
Elisaveta Olympic Champion
And Bravo to Adelina also!
