Polina K. is not good this season.
At Nationals she had moderately good SP (3lo with GOE -2, good other elements) and horrible FS (4 triples, one of them URed, fall from 2A, StSq level 2, only spins were good).
Before Nationals skating of the same sort.
If she will skate good at Final of Cup, she may get Worlds spot, because alternatives (Gosviani, Leonova) also were not so good at season.
Russia in fact does not have good candidates to be No 3 in Ladies now.
Russia really doesn't have a great choice for number 3 but at least gosviani skated well at least once and twice if you count euros fs not sp so that's 3rd choice. She did not have the Tes to go to euros but she was named.
Gosviani skated well only once after 2009 - at Russian Sr Nationals 2013, but after that (Nestle Nesquik Cup 2013, Euro 2013) she skated worse.
(at 2009 and before, from 2006, she was one of the best skaters of her age in Russia - like Radionova from 2009 to now)
This season that's one more than leonova and korobeynikova
Come on, now, seriously! What do you expect from the poor girl? At the Nestle Nesquik Cup 2013 she skated well enough to qualify for the worlds SP, and at the Europeans she skated well enough to place 6th and qualify there for the Worlds FS. You can't expect from her skating constantly as good as she skated at the nationals, considering that she has had practically no experience with competing at international competitions (if we don't count one about 2-3 years ago) and no experience with skating in senior competition (with exception of your nationals). Can you imagine how petrified she was skating at Europeans? Seeing all those approximately six thousand people sitting there and watching... I have seen her skating on the practices and I have seen how petrified she was just before going to start her FS. And yet she went there and delivered. Ok, she made a mistake with one jump in the SP and it cost her dearly, and she wasn't perfect in the FS, but watching her skate there, I have to say I actually admired her more than Adelina and Liza. Adelina and Liza are very good skaters, but they were prepared for this. They have done junior worlds, they have already skated the previous season at senior GP events. Nikol did not have that and still managed to put in two decent programs. That is fighting spirit!

Why? So will federation not consider Kovtun and B/L for Worlds team?
dont know about Kovtun maybe he will either be for Worlds or Junior Worlds ?

Larionov is not yet fully ready, rumor also they have some conflict with their current coach Kalinina and might change coach to Tamara Moskvina
I think their not participating means they know they're both Sade for worlds. This is actually not that important for anyone. Gosviani must still have doubts about going or she wouldn't be participating either. But this it though- leonovas last way to try to get to a senior competition or you will never see her again outside Russia. She can afford one mistake must beat gosviani by 20 or 30 points minimum.
Gorshkov said that entries to Jr Worlds will not be changed.
