a bit off topic but still related, Julia's current body changes
from her recent vacation in Croatia, she looks very beautiful
body frame is built like Tara Lipinski, maybe thats a good sign ?
looking at Julia's parents I knew she wouldn't have weight issues like Tukatmysheva when I saw Tuk's mother.

Pogorilaya on the team seems very unlikely to me. While I like her style, she will not get near Liza and Adelina PCS wise. Just a reminder, Anna's personal best in the LP is less than 110 while Liza cracked 130 at Europeans. And i can't remember a single junior world medalist who's PCS suddenly increased when turning from junior to senior (at least not recently). I bet even Adelina will outscore her on PCS by around at least 10 points if she can land at least half of the jumps. If Korobeynikova didn't get the PCS (who skates nicer and with more maturity), Pogo won't do it either. Not now at least
sorry Julia had her vacation in Cyprus I mistyped it with Croatia
Julia's body type is good for figure skating and she seems to not have an abrupt growth like what happened with Sotnikova

Again, the fact that she is landing jumps better than any Russian lady currently skating shows very clearly her weight is fine.
I think people think she has a weight problem is because she is short, not very curvy and her waist is not very defined, but this is her body frame. I am 100% sure most of us would be shocked to see her in real life and see how little she is actually. Her body frame is nothing alike Rachel, who has a pear shaped body. Adelina is bigger and taller than Liza(her bone structure looks wider) but because she is long legged and has a tiny waist she looks better proportioned on the ice.
I think people think Tukt has a weight problem from the unattractive packaging last season with the black dress with black tights that gave her no definition.
Tuktamysheva: 32.97/66.92 = 99.89
Korobeynikova: 29.92/58.58 = 88.50
Pogorilaya: 26.43/55.14 = 81.56
So it seems that, at least in terms of Nationals scoring, Tuktamysheva has an 11-point advantage over Korobeynikova, and an 18-point advantage over Pogorilaya. Of course, this is when Tuktamysheva skated lights out, but I highly doubt Pogorilaya is progressing enough to get 30+ and 60+ PCS, even on Nationals ice. She would need perfect skates and Tuktamysheva to really really bomb in order to beat hear.
