How many they were? Shelepen, Agafonova, Korobeynikova … Now the whole world knows Edmunds – the reigning Four Continents champion. But the world of figure skating expects another coming on behalf of Polina - and this time it is the common name maybe hiding a truly formidable force. What do we know about her? The Siberian beauty with coaly eyes and looking on ice like a Gothic character of fairy tales. It seems to me that she is the most unusual female skater among the galaxy of young talents growing as mushrooms after a rain in Russia.
Today she is the absolute leader among all Russian novices, the skater who demonstrates outstanding results almost at all competitions in which she participates for the second year in a row. Without having begun competing at the junior level yet, she already has a victory over the reigning Junior World champion. Is this amazing? Generally yes, but probably not. Probably it should be so. The situation is such - today it seems to you that you are head and shoulders above all, but tomorrow you are bypassed by your classmate, which is two years younger than you, but “younger” does not always mean “weaker”. And it is useless to sob because this "trifle" is indeed good - possessing high growth, she jumps as Thumbelina.
Honestly, when it became known that from the middle of the current season Polina began to rapidly gain in growth, I have thought about the inevitable problems that were supposed to occur by the end of the season. However, she not only did not slow down in the turns, but on the contrary, became even stronger and more confident, and to the end of the season she turned into a serious threat to all young girls planning to compete in the new season as the juniors. Of course, no one can guarantee that her victorious gait will proceed further, that being in the age of 15 or 17 years old she will also be confident to deliver her routines and to beat her rivals, that she won't be broken by difficulties, both physical and psychological. But today, Polina is like a tree wich is already waving leaves, while standing next to her seedlings of the same age are still dissolving kidney

Very impressive post Roman
Welcome Polina! Very curious to see what she brings next season
She is so tall, her jumps look scary big!
She will be one of the girls holding the torch for Russian ladies in junior skating next year. Big resposibility for a rookie skater, I hope somebody of "fantastic 4" (Med,Sakh,Sots,Prok) will help her in that task though.
