    On the outside - Julia and Elena said that organisation is awful as if it's hard to notice...they said it was their first time to skate on that ice. their practices were on another rink

    I disagree with this, just because someone smiles and shows more spark doesnt = X factor
    Leonova desnt, Julia has something an edge Elena doesnt have

    yes I read the interview after their SP.
    skaters were thrown in the competition ice rink while practicing in another

    about Julia peeing like a dog, I can equate other skaters too but I wont do that
    Flatt's fave skater reminds me also of another domesticated animal

    It might have influenced the competition. Everybody was put under the same conditions:( There were many silly mistakes today

    could be the reason so many had fumbles
    practicing in another rink and being thrown in another at the start of the competition

    also sorry to say but why the rink is almost empty ?

    Russian commentators discussed this on Eurosport I think the lack of italian represenatives has smth to do with it.

    I am back from the arena, couldn't stay there for the free dance too but I hope to stay all day long tomorrow. I have to say that the panel looked quite severe with <, or maybe I couldn't get them clearly, but they weren't so evident. The free skate will be so exciting with 10 skaters in 4 points or so. Of course Samantha looked a lot more mature than anybody else, but her age speaks for her. I loved the details of her choreography and she looked so fierce!
    Miyahara's was the program I enjoyed the most, maybe her jumps are not that high but they have soft landings. The step sequence was exquisite and I think she didn't get all what she deserved for pcs.
    Radionova is absolutely incredible, such a pity her flip but I am sure that was caused by inexperience. She did practice a 3salchow in the warm up, but I guess why since it wasn't planned in the short program at all. She landed a 3s-3t-3t in the warm up . Even after the fall you could tell she was still enjoying herself and didn't worry too much. She has a great sense of music, still the music choice was not the best and surprisingly (well, I have noticed that before too, but just completely realized today) it was almost the same music choice of Pogorilaia and Lipnitskaia. Even the costumes look similar.
    Lipnitskaia was the one with better jumping technique. She jumps very high and that mistake was a silly one but she was so upset after that! I don't know if doing spiral after spiral and al of her flexibility works in a good way for her. They surely are difficult transitions but they are kind of distracting.And even the spins could be less stretched. But that's just my point of view. Anyway, I was so impressed with the quality of her spins, not for the positions themselves, but because they were very centered, and that is so clear when she changes the edge in the flying camel.

    The stop they did for audio problems was so embarassing, thanks god they gave 6 extra minutes for warm up for the Korean girls. They where very smiley when they came back on the ice

    We'll have to agree to disagree. It's not just about Elena smiling, per se, it's about how Elena feels the music and projects that joy back to the audience. She wants the audience to have as much fun as she has. She connects with us. She's a young, thin girl but she projects a 'big' personality, and that's all supported by her choice of music, choreography and her bold, sensationally-styled catsuit. She has real showmanship and star quality and like it or not, that can make all the difference.

    It's encouraging to hear Julia's jumps are high, on the tv screen they look a bit small. Hope she skates clean tomorrow
    And have fun if you'll attend the rest of the competition

    thank you, this was what I've been saying Julia has better and bigger jumps than Elena's minus her 2A

    Julia's jumps may not look that big on TV but her jump core on the air and landings are very clean, Elena is the one with the small jumps not Julia
    Elena has 3Flip issues and her 3lz-3t has gotten smaller, other jumps can be wobbly

    lutz and axel were great, the flip was maybe short (i the sense that it didn't cover much distance) but was pretty high
