    I think she can have 3Lz+3T+3T in her program next season and with one flip instead of two.

    I just wish her jump can be good as Adelina's or Liza's. I don't see any jumpers like Liza and Adelina coming up. I don't think Elena would lose her jumps as she grows up, but still, she isn't good enough to receive 2 or 3 +GOEs for her jumps. At least she has artistry, spins&steps that can receive level fours.

    What amazes me is that all our super girls are completely different!each of them outstands in different things:
    Julia - the best spins in the world
    Liza - the cleanest jumps in the world
    Adelina - all-around
    Lena - the best artistry

    Too bad that Russian girls never "got it all".

    Any girl who actually has:
    1).Spins with beautiful positions, and ones that usually gets level four.
    2).Step sequence good enough to earn level three or four.
    3).Elegance and artistry
    4).Every triple jumps except 3A with no flutz/lip problems.
    5).Is consistent.
    6).Has ability to put 3T or 3Lo to any triple jumps.
    7).Has good quality jumps, with amazing height and distance. It would be Gracie+Liza combined.
    8).Has nice speed/ice coverage.

    I think I'm asking for another Yuna here If any girls have everything on this list, she would be amazing.

    And as for jumps-I just don't like Julia and Serafima's jumps. I'm not sure about Elena-she has difficulty but not the quality.

    Come on!Lena is just 13)) Recall Yu-na at this age..
    IMO, Adele is "almost-there-girl"..All she needs is consistency aaaand emotions during her skates!Sometimes she looks tooooo tense(
    Liza is really good too, but her coverage is BAD for me((
    All I want to say is that they will be great...with time=) Yu-na like, may be?

    Yuna at 12 years old: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-phlLjuZd1c The jumps and skating skills were already there. She just didn't get the kind of exposure at that age that Elena, Adelina and Liza had.

    Radionova is phenomenal. At 1:10 there is Lipnitskaya on the background doing triple jump?

    Another russian prodigy is to watch Serafima Sakhanovich (age 12 now), who came 5th at Russian Nationals

    She's the best of the bunch. Excellent height on jumps, not short of rotation enough to be under rotated (She struggles a bit sometime to make the full rotation, a bit offsetting) and beautiful line, great speed and beautiful spin positions. She also really relates to her music. Give her room to mature and I see a new world champion and a new olympic champion.

    That's part of what I love about her, besides her expressiveness and musicality, is that she seems ever so slightly offbeat and different from the average figure skater. I don't know how to explain it. I just love her to bits.
