    Positive aspect about Sotnikova: she finally landed a clean 2A+3T!! Her 2A looks really improved compared to the past to me

    Adelina's 2Axel is big and solid.

    The Salchow attempt on which she fell was underrotated. And of course the second 3loop< from the opening combo.

    She isn't falling on the 3Z-3R, which makes me think she is spending a lot of time on it. However, I wish she wouldn't because that is never going to get +GOE with the edge call and the UR. Her time is better spent fixing her other jumps, but that's just my opinion.

    It looked to me like she didn't UR the 3L on her opening combo (she certainly rotated it much better than her 3Z-3L in the SP).

    Get the feeling that she is too tense when she skates, it doesn't flow or seem easy. Either this girl has a serious case of the nerves or she's not too confident about her technique, or both. I wish she could try a different coaching team.

    Kovtun needs more time. His posture and stamina are still lacking. But his costume is charming.

    When will she stop doing two flips? I just wonder if this singling is planned maybe as strategy for some reason. No competent coaching staff or skater would keep Doing something they can never ever do unless it's part of a plan that she knows she will go to Sochi and in Sochi will land 3 flip and 3 flip 2 toe 2 toe and it will be hailed as a great skating to fullest potential moment. Unless they are all just totally bizarre people who refuse to beleieve she can't do 2 flips in a fs and will never change it ever because they are in the worst denial ever to afflict a skaters coaching team in history and maybe the skater themselves.

    I just wish kovtun would go back to Jrs and go to jr gp and jr Worlds and then go sr as part of a plan because this jump to seniors couldn't be going more poorly and is sad.

    Maybe in training she can do it and in competition she just has nerves problems? Anyway, it could be good to try to do 2 loops, which is a solid jump for her (don't forget that with two loops the loop could become her enemy jump and flip a "really solid jump", because she would have to do a lot of them: it's a mental thing!), but, since she doesn't want to make her BV lower repeating the toeloop/salchow, she has to choose: the lutz has the highest BV but edge calls would affect badly her GOE, so she has only the flip and the loop

    Progressing with each skate this season. Right on track to peak in time for all important Russian Nationals

    Thanks for the link! Looks a bit rough and lacking in some places, but that's to be expected since they just changed it. I think it's much better than their previous SD, and I love that they don't do any hops or skips in their NT steps. Only thing that I wish they could have done differently was use Pasha's recording instead of Marilyn's!
