    The Russian girl (Medvedeva) was clean, but I think way overscored on TES for her tiny, barely-eeked out jumps (even with two 3-3 combos.) The judges on the JGP seem to love 13-year-old Russians with tiny, tiny jumps.
    What are the judges supposed to do? Give -3 in goe for a fully rotated and landed jump based on some idea of if a jump isn't a certain amount of height off the ice it's bad? Or how about invalidating jumps that aren't a certain size? And does the size of the skater matter? Over 5 foot jumps have to be certain height under 5 another! This tiny jump criticism is just so meaningless it matters if they are rotated and done!! Landed! Just ridiculous!

    Not to mention the skater herself is pretty small and had good runout out of her jumps. I didn't nnotice about the transitions into them, so someone else can comment on that. I see no reason why her jumps should get negative GOE. I don't even think they're that small, actually.

    Medvedeva: I really liked the program artistically, and I actually think that her jumps are better (in height and technique) than Lipnitskaya's for example...
    Sotskova: shame for the fall (and for the costume! it's just ), but she's good, could easily qualify for the final...
    Chen just crumbled under pressure I think (her jumps were not UR and two-footed like that in her summer competitions), the same for Efimenko. Chartrand skated quite well, she could be Osmond's heir if she keeps improving!

    IIRC karen had some bad URs last year at Us Nats so it's not terribly surprising if she fell on old ( bad) habits sido due to competition nerves. I think her jumps have really improved since switching to Tammy Gambill

    Loving Sotskova. Thre is just something about her style of skating that I really enjoy. And am I really the only one who is in love with her costume for FS? Loved it already last season, glad she kept it.
    As for Medvedeva. What a lovely little girl. Such joy to watch!

    These are just my prediction, but I think the top 3 from this competition will go to the final. Also Seraphima Sakhanovich and Polina Edmunds will most likely to go. Ogoreltseva, Proklova, Miller or Hae-jin Kim will probably take the remaining spot. Too many good skaters for limited spot!! Is Wang or Hicks competing in the junior circuit as well...??

    And she really deserve it. Her program and performance really stood out from the rest. She was just amazing, I noticed her last year but this year she made real progress. The best of everything was Evghenia but as it was said, being in her firs junior year, there is room to improve. I think her jumps looked fine, good entrance, good flow and landing.
    Karen had a very nice performance, too bad about the UR, as I was saying I don't trust her body type and it's not good that she already has this kind of problems. I am afraid she will not resist until seniors. But that speed across the ice is amazing.
    Maria S disappointed me. I almost didn't recognize her after seeing her skate yesterday. The most boring program I 've ever seen. What was that music? I almost couldn't hear it. And the costume really didn't do her justice. She looked amazing yesterday.
    As for Liubov... she probably felt the pressure of being close to the podium. Otherwise nice costume and interesting music.

    No she does not
    Julia has better flow on her jumps and her landings are secure except for the 2A
    she gets fast rotation and Julia's jumps are bigger than Medvedeva

    what happened to Karen ? shame about Sotskova's fall but
    I guess Medvedeva was going to win as she usually is a good freeskater than Sotskova doing a clean FS
