Yeah the top 4 after the SP were the podium contenders going into this event, the rest of the field is pretty much unknown. I thought Barbie had grown too, she and Polina both look so tall now, they used to be so little. Also I thought Barbie's jumps looked higher than usual, maybe that's why she was having trouble with the landings? I know at her JGP, she got a few URs, so maybe she's been working on jump height to fix that and the result is just not as much control with the landings. Polina's speed is just wow, really brings to mind Kostner during her teen years with the fast skating, long limbs and hard 3-3s! Karen I agree is really special but she's still just a little girl. I'm glad Mariah's jumps seem to have gotten more secure as she's grown, I was afraid they would get worse, but no that lutz was really nice. I hope the medalists end up being the top 4 after the SP, in whatever order, I really want to see Polina and Mariah on the JGP next season so I hope hope for their sake they can hang on to a podium spot so as to not miss out again (I really felt both should have gotten JGPs this past season quite honestly).
