    Is it certain that Stepanova & Bukin will go senior? It might be better to see if anyone retires after Olympics and build up some more ISU points by winning juniors, what I am assuming will be for a second time? Bukin is not 19 until September; Stepanova will be 18 in August, so I believe they still have that option
    I personally don't think that it makes sense. If they transition to seniors, they will probably not go to the Olympics, but they can do a bunch of senior B's and probably get two GP's to raise their rep. Also, it will give them practice doing longer dances.

    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

    Says who? (It's a rhetorical question btw, we all know the answer and the answer is: You are the only person claiming that and you have absolutely nothing to back that claim up with.)

    Stop repeating that. It's completely irrelevant. For a skater at Gosviani's level earning Euros TES minimum is ridiculously easy and she comfortably reached them at the fist international competition she entered, not even skating senior programs!

    Yes. Kustarova/Alexeeva's programs are just awful.

    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.

    Yes, and guess what? She can land jumps, unlike Leonova, who is silver world medallist last year and struggles to stay on her feet. If Leonova was sent to Europeans, do you think she would have been judged solely on her good results from the past, or do you think they may have noticed that she is actually not landing anything?

    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.

    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!

    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?)

    Some videos can be found at this channel: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UChx-...?feature=watch
    At the moment it has only ice dance, probably other disciplines will be added later.
