    Perhaps Gracie's picked up some Russian and Ukranian from Alex that she wanted to attempt on Adelina?

    thanks, I used to read all the threads almost every day, now I feel like posting as well. I LOVE THIS FORUM! I think it's the best figure skating forum in the world and all the comments are very fair, regardless of skaters' and users' nationality, people here judge and post their opinions as per the skaters skate)))

    I used to like Makarova very much. She was strong, nice, elegant, but I think it was wrong for her to change a coach. I agree, she was a mess this season! I do want Polinas go to the Worlds! It may be their last chance sa Lisa and Adelina will be eligible next year

    Her new team tried to rework her jump technique and I think it was a big mistake. Her jumps never were very good, but at least she could land and rotate them. I think Makarova had her chances and is unlikely to show decent result at Worlds, it's time to give Polina S a chance. Polina K, IMO, will be competitive even with Adelina and Liza next year, and should easily beat Leonova and Makarova if she continues to do well, she got her jums this season and now has the whole package. Polina S will always be behind her teammates in PCS, even though she has improved a lot, but she is a good technician and deserves her chance

    Polina K's last chance ?
    I don't think so, in fact in the long run, she could be one if not the most successful of all the russian junior ladies
    she has all the 3-3 jumps and expressive girl who has survived puberty. Polina K just needs more consistency
    for Shelpen she will always get low PCS unless she improves her artistry , Shelepen reminds me of Miki Ando

    Well, just saying, but Miki Ando is twice a world champion.

    What Shelepen needs to do is learn to ace the short program, more than she needs artistry.

    Last year she only rotated the toe on her 3Lz+3T once, every other time it was at least under-rotated and often two footed. Her 3Lz+3R has been more consistent overall plus its incredibly awesome
