    I know--I was just wondering what you meant, but perhaps this would be better discussed in a private message.

    We all know that, but Tuk's FS from Skate Canada and her performance at the St. Petersburg Cup showed that she has come through that and is recovering her form.

    Julia in GPF , Yes
    Liza ? 4th in SC, she needs to get silver in TEB to go to GPF , so I am hoping Julia will lose to Tuk here, lol

The 3loop is not a great jump for her, and the callers have called both of her second loops UR in both of her GPs. Having only one double axel is okay, but having it as the second element in a sequence is dangerous for the reason we saw here today--her 3F was shaky and she didn't do the axel. Since the axel is a required element, the triple toe was voided as if it never happened. And her FS layout ridiculously doesn't allow her to attempt her eye-catching 3T/3T.
    I am more of 2nd mark than the jumps. Kanako is a much more mature skater this year, but she's getting same PCS.

    I haven't yet seen the St. Petersburg Cup, but Mishin was saying a week or two before SC that Tuk was still struggling. Might be that the problem is fixed now, but it was definitely present in Canada.

Polina is still a dark horse, Leonova will have an uphill struggle if she hopes to prove that they can't count her out just yet, and Adelina needs to fix whatever is preventing that 3F before it wrecks her at Russian Nats.
    I prefer Adelina's style to Liza's. But of the two, I think it's Adelina who should be more careful about the weight. I hope all of them -- Adelina, Liza and Julia -- enter the Olympic season in top shape.

    He said it before both the St Petersburg Cup and Skate Canada. The whole point of her competing in the St Petersburg Cup was to check that she had overcome her injuries and growth spurt and was ready for Skate Canada. I seem to recall her team saying somewhere (although I maybe wrong) that she was 80% and improving after the St Pertersburg Cup. Hence, given that her much improved Skate Canada FS was several weeks ago now, I think we will see an even better performance by the time of her second GP event

    She was considering dropping out of SC until ~1 week before. It might have been less severe, but she definitely wasn't fine--just look at her exhaustion in the SP.

    did you see her current skate at Plushenko's birthday, she's in good form now
    so hopefully she will medal in TEB ( silver ) to go GPF, her 168+ score at SC would have medaled her here at CoR

    There should be concern that all the Russian ladies will bomb because they are really and Russia will have not only just one man but only 2 ladies entrants in Sochi. But like leonova's 2010 was like this. Looks like the whole Sochi campaign might have been overly optimistic and it's all for 2018 not 2014. This is the season of Americans really and not Russians and 2013 worlds is important and no one seems to even have the goods for 2013 worlds.

    I agree. When I saw Gold I thought wow she's really pretty but I never felt that way when I saw Kira. I think the other skaters from her country (that no longer skate) were more stunning imo.

    Just wanted to say congrats to the 3 medalist. I'm glad Gold got her first senior gp medal. Honestly at this stage whoever ended up on the podium was fine by me.

    Had Kanako did a shaky 3F with even 1A , will the 3T still get a credit??? One 2A is mandatory, but even if u single it, you still furfill the requirement right??

    But, as you yourself would agree, this is not a beauty pageant. Its a skating contest, and PCS should in no way be related to personal appearance.
