    But that's a decision USFS makes based upon a result...I already saw Miller's LP this year, unless she significantly declines from what I saw (unlikely), she won't bomb.

    And Ashley Cain. Both had not so good results at JGP I (Courchevel) and no 2nd JGP Event.

    Miller did not bomb at Nationals. One downgraded jump at SP and three URs at FS - 10th place.

    The now-deleted JGP assignments (for whatever they are worth??) are in this GS thread:
    Hawayek/Baker are prepping for JGP Mexico, according to IN's caption to a Skate Detroit photo.

    ETA:
    And an IN article on Skate Detroit says that U.S. novice dance champions Chloe Lewis and Logan Bye also are prepping for JGP Mexico (which will be their JGP debut).

    (Among the now-deleted JGP assignments mentioned above, H/B [ETA: and L/B] were on the list for Mexico. So maybe the deleted assignments will prove to be accurate??)

    Am I the only one having problems with getting my posts through? I've sent several replies to bluesky85's message above but I guess they are stuck somewhere in the Forum(moderator please, could you have a look?)

    To Bluesky85:


    Jenni Saarinen:

    - ISU profile http://www.isuresults.com/bios/isufs00034234.htm
    - born in 1999
    - trains together with Kiira Korpi (coaches Susanna Haarala, Maaret Siromaa)
    - season's best: 141,66
    - national novice champion in 2011, got bronze in juniors in 2012 (she got injured just before the competition)
    - gold in Nordics 2013, in Cup of Nice 2012 and Ice Star Minsk 2012 (all at junior level)
    - 14th in Junior Worlds 2013. She was the youngest of all competitors. Her FS technical score was 7th highest. Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjkeK6R-SQo
    - my personal opinion is that Jenni is super talented. She can already do all triple jumps, a 3T+3T combination and 2A+3T. However, she needs more speed and to improve her artistry and skating skills in order to reach the top.


    Liubov Efimenko:

    - born in 1999. Liuba comes from Russia but has lived in Finland for several years.
    - coach Nuriya Pirogova
    - silver medal in junior national championships in 2012
    - gold in Nordics 2012 (novice). Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQ2yz5KBz0o
    - season's best was 145,23 (Liuba won the Hellmut Seibt Memorial competition in 2013 with her record score!)
    - a good jumper, masters all triple jumps. Same as with Jenni, Liuba needs to improve her skating skills, artistry etc.


    Lyydia Määttänen:

    - born in 1998
    - trains with Kiira Korpi (coaches Haarala and Siromaa)
    - Lyydia won gold in junior nationals in 2012, silver in novice in 2011
    - season's best was 130,17
    - talented skater, lovely interpretation. Needs more consistency with her jumps.
    - on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZEs9F_Wkow


    All three girls had their first season at junior level in 2012-2013. I think this is why the Finnish skating federation didn't select them to compete in JGPs last season, even though their talent has been obvious for a long time.

    Last but not least, a lovely photo of the three girls who happen to be very good friends with each other: http://www.stll.fi/materiaalit/lehti/ (scroll down and you can find the pic of them in blue jackets)

    On results of Russian test skate 15 and 17 August - possible changes for three first JGP Events.

    JGP I - Sakhanovich changed by Sotskova.
    JGP II - (Ogoreltseva or Li) changed by Alsu KAIUMOVA.
    JGP III - Maria STAVITSKAIA changed by Alexandra PROKLOVA.

    Will these changes be in reality - we will see later.

    UPD First two changes are made.
    Third - may be later.
