    Just wondering, why weren't Davankova and Deputat sent?

    She's injured, so they didn't compete at Russian Jr. Nationals

    Very bad day for Russian pairs and bad idea to send 2 inconsistent couples( the new team Tarasova/Morozov who usually tank the LP and Gainetova/Bich who had some low results this season). Maybe Davankova/Deputat are still injured, otherwise it wasn't too wise not to send them instead of Gainetova/Bich. Even Vigalova/Zakroev would have been a better choice for the third spot, they had better results this season and are the most consistent russian pair. Fedorova/Miroshkin are young and the pressure got the best of them. It happens, a medal is still within reach, but only if others make mistakes. The performance of the night was Denny /Frazier's program Shocked to see they actually won on PCS, the judging was spot on tonight on the pairs, no reputation points. Lovely comeback from the Chinese couple, I hope they won the title since Chinese pairs are in a slump currently.

    Yes, a disappointing night for the Russian pairs. I still really enjoyed the performance of T/M, I hope they can put in a good free skate, although there is no guarantee of that. F/M seemed a bit nervous, it took her an awful long time to get back into the routine after her fall. Both are still very close to the lead, 1st to 7th are covered by 5 marks so there is the possibility of a few moves. Didn't see G/B skate but they are a long way back, they gave a good performance in Russian nationals but not today.

    My favourites were the Canadians P/M, their twist, throw and jumps weren't the highest but all were done clean, there is a real nice quality to their skating. I am surprised to see D/F leading on PCS, I found the routing to be a bit rushed going from element to element. I liked the Ukrainians a lot more than the judges, maybe they got low levels?

    G/B did bomb their first JGP event but their score at their second event was similar to what the other Russian Junior pairs were getting during the series. They beat V/Z at Russian nationals and D/D were injured so there was no good reason not to send G/B to this event. Implying their selection was due to nepotism is pathetic. G/B went for some of the most ambitious side-by-side jumps we've seen in pairs (junior or senior) this season: 3Lz+2T and 3T, landing both. In comparison, F/M and V/Z have never attempted ANY sbs triples, ever.

    That double twist from Fedorova/Miroshkin was just unbelievable. I don't remember seeing this kind of height ever.

    Shame the rest of the program was rather .

    A bit of a mess overall. But well it's Junior Pairs.

    Yu/Jin was definitely the standout performance. Very composed, very polished, very confident throughout. Really strong elements.

    Presentation needs work, however.

    Yes, they do try the most difficult elements, it's true. But I still think the third place should have gone to either D/D or V/Z, based on the season results. Isn't Russia's policy that third place on nationals does not necessarily mean a spot on the team? D/D and V/Z got medals on both their JGP, got medals on the JGPF beating the top two couples here, not to mention D/D already got a bronze from last year and are more experienced. And V/Z, while they don't try a triple jump(she is still very young, only 13 years old), have an amazing consistency, I don't think I've seen them fall this season.
    Last year, if I recall correctly, in ice dance, a russian couple who placed third on junior nationals stayed home while the couple in forth place went to Jr Worlds thanks to their better results that season (and were very close to the podium, placed forth I believe). Tarasova/Morozov also failed to medal at their JGP and have constant problems with their LP, the only good one I remember from them was from Senior Nationals.
    Anyway, on the other hand, it's true G/B went for broke at nationals(they had a fall in the SP) and had an amazing LP, I am sure their place on the team has nothing to do with nepotism. My opinion is that they had a much stronger team at Sochi than here, and so far, I was right.

    Injury Davankova. She had not enough time to restore after it.

    Congratulations to Yu-Jin: finally a good skate, after a not-so-good season! That was really a wonderful program, really refined, now they have to learn how to put passion in their performances...
    P/M were far more mature in the interpretation, but they need a bit more transitions...
