    Every woman has a right to decide these things on her own. There are also a number of medical conditions occuring after pregnancy and birth that might even prevent her from traveling.

    You must be kidding. This is a personal decision, whether one wants to leave the baby or not. Maybe she can't anyway. What do you know??? Geeez, the baby is only 2-week-old. Calm down.

    Next you'll suggest she shouldn't have kids so long as she's coaching. Stuff happens. Skaters, even young ones, sometimes have to compete without their primary coaches. Polina will have to learn to deal with the pressure of competition or she'll never get anywhere.
    I have two kids, I stopped working for the delivery and started working right away. She could have found a couple of hours a day for Polina and come here... She's a baby, 15 years old. She may not get another chance, nor any of her students.

    I really hope you're kidding, being with a newborn baby is way more important than this!

    If that was the right decision for you, fine. This does not mean all women should be compelled to return to work less than a month after having a baby. In my country there are mandatory maternity leaves in addition to optional time off, and a woman so soon after delivery can't return to work in an official capacity.

    Polina is not a baby, but Viktoria's child is, and if it's too early for her to return to coaching and travel, so be it.

    I love the artist. Same one we've seen at Trophee Bompard, I think.

    Yeah funny with long yellow and red hair
    apparently her guardian or who ever is with Polina
    does nto know what combos to use in caseaside from other than not helping her in other things
    This could be Polina's last Worlds for a long time, Russia might get 2 spots for the ladies and it will be Tukt and Adelina/Alena

    I do not blame Volchkova for not being there
    but the guardian or who is with Polina for not preparing and doing enough for her

    I'm just very dissapointed, anywat RusFed should have tranferred Polina to some other coach right after the Euros...so that she could adapt and not lose her shape. I want 3 representatives next year and now I have no illusions left.

    I agree that better alternate arrangements should have been made.

    I think Russia still has a shot at three ladies for next year; it's not the strongest field, and Leonova at least should be able to do well.

    We're not talking about a junior B-level event. If my primary coach can't attend the World Championships, I'll be getting a new primary coach. Take all the maternity time you want from April to August.

    Do you understand how maternity leave works?
