    I could be wrong
    but Polina K. could turn out to be the most successful of all the young russian ladies in the long run , she is disappointed with her euros performance but is working on her short program and striving for the big medals, she might just be the biggest spoiler in 2012 worlds as no one will ever expect her to medal on the podium

    I am happy she has the drive and aiming to win euros, worlds and the Olympics and is working better on her artistry content
    and find it interesting how Polina K. likes Carolina as she reminds me of Carolina with her huge and light jumps.

    She has really nice jumps that remind me a lot of Volchkova's. I thought it was funny that VV said that Polina warms up doing triple triples.

    I love the new wave of russsian girls, they all want to win in Sochi Polina was wonderful at euros, I m really anxious if any of the girls dont qualify for Olys if they will drop skating after or realise there is a big career after Sochi too, cause they are too many for the 3 spots, anyone who wont go will be heartbreaking.

    I love Koro, she is tall and elegant. While Liza gets my vote for amazing, this girl is someone who caught me right away. Adelina who? Go Polina!

    Agree.... wow, as in lovely. elegant. REALLY HOPE she does not get lost in the middle of INCREDIBLE talent pool amongst the Russian ladies. Hope there is room for talent and beauty like hers to be nurtured, get international experience and thrive. TOO MUCH talent (frankly prioritized by TRIPLE JUMP mania) amongst the very deep and talented pool of Russian ladies. Thankful for the article to draw attention to her and to the depth (ironically).

    I don't think Polina will get lost despite of the deep field in russian ladies skaters
    she is more than capable of making it at the top, on the contrary if she keeps improving, she could be the next Carolina Kostner
