    Puberty can be a pain excuse the expression. Sad for Tuk; I am not surprised. The door is wide open for Yuna. Who is the top Russian. Looks like Tuk slipped down the ladder. Polinas are inconsistent. Adelina has her problems with confidence. Lipnskaya is unknown at this point. Leonova is not well liked by many and too quirky. markova has some dreadful programs and not a full arsenal of jumps. The door is open for Carolina, Yuna, Ashley and the Japanese ladies to dominate leaving Russia with only two ladies next year.

    that sounds like a magic crystal ball ? , remmember when Polina bombed at Worlds and everyone were almost certain Russia would only get 2 spots for next Worlds ? , anything can happen, the season hasn't even started, Carolina and Yuna will not be competing until early next year.

    Isn't it too early to write Liza off? You sound like she lost all of her jumps and her career is over. She still even can go to Skate Canada, the final decision is not made yet. And even if not, she has time to recover and come back strong for Russian Nationals and then shine at Euros and Worlds. She has excellent technique on her jumps and a very very good coach, she'll be fine

    Again, isn't it too early to say? The Grand Prix hasn't even started yet, not to mention the most important competitions. Yes, last season Adelina struggled with puberty, but the season before she won every competition she entered. Let's see what she'll show when she is in her best shape

    Like it or not, but she is a current World silver medalist.

    And why do you think these ladies don't have their own problems? Ashley, even though everyone expected her to medal, lost to "too quirky" Leonova at Worlds. Japanese ladies aren't the most consistent either. We won't see Carolina and Yuna at Grand Prix, so it's too early to make predictions

    Thanks, sky_fly20! Such a shame that Polina S is losing her touch, big time. What is happening to Arthur? He seems more and more unsure each season

    Of all these skaters, I'd love to watch S/Z's performance the most!

    Gachinski is never reliable, I bet they will pluck Kovtun to go seniors soon

    The translation is so bad but seems like Gachinski fell on a quad and a spin?

    She knew she was injured and they asked her to skate anyway? For such a small domestic unimportant competition she was risking her health?
