    Anastasia Tarakanova

    She's a Russian figure skater coached by Svetlana Panova. Her birthday is April 14, 2004. She'll be eligible for the Junior Grand Prix in 2017-2018.

    Picture: Here

    Currently her junior PBs appear to be 54.76, 116.82, 171.58.

    Current season's programs:
    SP
    FS

    I think that she's fun to watch. Her technical ability at 11 years old is remarkable. She jumps high and I really enjoy her spins. While I like her SP as well, her FS really sets her apart this season. It includes 7 triple jumps, two of which are lutz, but is still a lot of fun and the ending is the best thing ever.

    If you've never heard of her before, I'd encourage you to check her out~!

    Not really about Anastasia but a while back I took a look at the scores of the Russian Cup events and I noticed that Alena Kostornaya had the best PB among those who will be JGP eligible in 2017-2018. Alena's PB were 175.75. Anastasia had the 2nd best PB.

    This is from last season's Jr. Nationals. It's obviously not her best performance but my baby is still awesome

    5th stage of Russian Cup

    SP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-H775KCa70

    She did good today. She is 3rd after SP. If she does pretty well tomorrow in FS she will qualify for the Russian junior championships.

    Really amazing short program today by Anastasia. Even with a mistake and no combo. Her StSq, SS and arm movements are very enjoyable. Also good music choice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A09OpyrNKPg

    But scores are too low.

    I agree! Really one of my favorite performances today, beautiful skater. Sad that she scored so low with this program, she's so young though. She has so much potential, I can see her doing really well in juniors next season.

    I like her SP so much also. But for two last seasons Anastasia isn't so stable like before. She was first on Junior Moscow few days ago. But yesterday she was only 16th on Russian Junior(( I wish her good luck today in LP.

    Are you kidding? That girl is just 12 years old. It is one thing winning at Moscow-juniors and another taking part in the Junior Nationals, which is filled up with girls, who already have international experience.

    Many girls don't have international experience there. If Anastasia skated like on the Moscow Junior she would be upper. She is so graseful but she need to improve her stability. 12 yo isn't so young for Russian girls. Her main competitors are 12 also.

    Nastya changed her SP, but still skates with last year free program. I hope she will save her SP to the next season and finally will change her FP. She is more suitable with lyric music.
