^^I tend to agree. The other ladies plan more content, you mentioned Radinova and Lipnitskaya, but there's also Pogorilaya (3lz-3t in SP and FS, 7 triples and two 2a total in FS) and Miyahara (same deal with jumps) to throw in the mix. Cesario could maybe medal but most likely it would be bronze and to do that it would probably take some mistakes from some of the favorites.
Where is my post about Siraj
I made some comments about Siraj's US national skating (something like she improved a lot) two days ago, and the post was there right after. However, I don't see my post in this thread anymore.
No matter how insignificant my comments are, I certainly do not want it just mysteriously disappear. Anyone knows why?
dorispulaski's post and my post, both about Siraj, disappeared too.
I think a lot of posts disappeared in the last two days because the board was undergoing an update during that time.
I lost a whole thread that I had posted, as well as posts about Siraj, and in some dance threads (no surprise there. I talk too much about dance). Also, all of AlexRus's live commentary on the Men's LP at the final Russian Cup event was lost.
hippomoomin, I'm sorry your posts were lost too.
Fortunately, this is something that has happened once in 13 years.
Yasmin should do well if she lands her jumps. She only finished a few points behind Adelina a couple years ago at the JGP in Sheffield, and that was back when Adelina was very consistent and landing most everything. Even medaling isn't outside the realms of possibility for Yasmin honestly, she has great programs this season and she gets rewarded with good PCS when she hits the jumps.
I did notice Radionova's 3lz-3t has gotten smaller and her jumps are still wobbly
but wont stop the judges giving her higher PCS than Julia which is completely wrong
Julia is fast for a junior, and might earn high SS score but unfortunately, SS is not all about being fast.

Since it seems going 1-2 by Russian girls solid as rock, my wish is a podium finish for Daleman, please! Love this girl. She can JUMP!
Half this list is wishful thinking...
