that chances of Stepanova/Bukin going juniors again next season is unikely
they have a chance of sneaking into the Olympics team R/T haven't that progressed that much, S/Z are at a deadlock in their developments with Kustarova
my prediction for Russian Team for Olympics
B/S, I/K and S/B
Gosviani's level was jrgp reject and 3rd alternate to Russian nationals. That was her level before her one point victory over leonova which was a 6th place finish With her clean and leonova messy and that got her named to the euros team when she was not eligible. So get gosviani's level right.
Btw it is not the first Russian cup final so there's previous results to be looked over and what they meant.
I am not saying that having a name doesn't help, of course it does, especially with the second mark, but having a name is not enough. It won't make the not landed jumps count as landed.

Senior ladies short program has just started. Anybody watching it live?
Does anyone have a link?
Gerasimova is leading over Korobeneykova and Leonova: look at her TES, 37.49!! Leonova didn't receive any bonus but her TES is still quite high, and she didn't (luckily) receive absurd PCS, she probably popped the combo (maybe 3T+2T/2T+3T) I think
Now Gosviani is in 3rd... Gerasimova isn't old enough to go to the ISU Championships (she was born in 1998), so I think that Korobeneykova is (at the moment) the qualified one: I wish her the best for tomorrow, I really hope she can go to Worlds!
Depends on the FP. There is only 1.5 point difference between Gosviani and Korobeynikova and I haven't seen Korobeynikova skate clean FP the whole season.
For gmyers: There is only 0.09 point difference between Leonova and Agafonova, so that shows you at what level Leonova is skating now!

looks like no worlds for leonova. Hope polina k sneaks it
What on Earth is happening at this event? Anyone have any reports? Anyone have any videos? Anyone have any wild rumours? Anyone have anything? (Why don't the Russian Cups post protocols?)
