Watching the videos - this was a very well skated competition! All the teams would really deserve to be at Junior Worlds. That said, they are all more or less evenly matched, so I would go with the results of Junior nationals in terms of JW assignments. With any of the 5 teams they pick, Russia could potentially sweep the podium.
Does anyone know anything about the pairs team Chernyavskaya/Souza-Kordeiru? I think the guy is not from Russia.
That was a very enjoyable competition. Does anyone know if F/M have ever attempted triple jumps in their free skate, everything else was done very well. I'm not sure I would have them winning the free but probably first over both sections. I was very impressed with G/B, they have been of form all season but they really nailed it here, hopefully they can hold that form for Junior Worlds. T/M didn't perform at the level they showed in Senior Nationals but I really like them, they have huge potential. It's a very strong team they are sending to worlds.
It's a pretty packed field in Russian pairs at the moment. I hope D/D get over their injury problems and come back strong next season, they were so impressive last year.
