    I see there is a Spanish pair-that would make a full set of possible entries for Spain, if Spain qualifies for the team competition for the Olympics.

    Veronica does not have Spanish citizenship.

    It seems to me, that Spanish Federation consider them as a long-time project. Google translation says their goal for 2013-14 season is to get technical minimum for Euros and to competite at European Champ.

    ; Perhaps she will get Spanish citizenship? Is she seeking it, and is that possible?

    Entry lists updated. There is a new skater representing Poland (I imagine she is Polish-American), Colette Kaminski.

    Stolbova/Klimov and Fedorova/Miroshkin were added in Pairs! I imagine S/K are looking for easy ranking points.

    I've often wondered why Agnes Zawadzki never tried competing for Poland?

    Probably because she would have to wait years to get a release from US Figure Skating (see Morgan Matthews).

    I've heard rumours that she has never considered that. She has Polish roots and she could probably obtain citizenship very quickly (PFSA and the Ministry of Sport would surely help to expedite it) if she wanted to.

    However, as cassiem said, since Zawadzki is a former US Nationals medallist and a World Junior Championships medallist, USFS would probably block her release. :(

    Thanks for the YouTube link, Alex. I've added it to the OP. How awesome of the organiser to upload the videos so quickly!

    Advanced Novice Girls SP was won by Diana Nikitina who is Latvia's hope for the future. She landed 3lutz/2toe, 3loop and a 2axel. I don't know how old she is but she has consistent triples (landed them at Volvo Cup as well) so a great skill level for Novice Ladies. Basics are lacking, though. (Latvia has Kuchvalska as well with consistent 3toe and 3salchow so a really good time for Latvian skating).

    Gubanova - Wow, wow, wow! 3flip/2toe and 3loop from a skater who is only 10 years old!!! But it's not just that. Her basics are really strong. Deep edges, fluid and elegant movement. Absolutely incredible!!! The next Radionova?

    I really liked Lucyna Okhrem. Only 1a, 2lutz and 2loop/2loop but a good quality on all of her elements and some beautiful spirals. I highly respect her coach and choreographer Evgenia Gres who always pays a lot of attention to strong basics and the whole package.

    she needs to fix that bad axel technique while still very young, telegraphic and not much speed
    is her coach Goncharenko ? I can recognize that axel from Radionova and Samarin

    agree Latvia looks good for the future, competition for Finland there

    Novice Boys SP was won by Russian Pavel Iuferov. 3flip(possible cheat)/2toe, 3loop, 2axel. He seems tiny as well.

    Junior Ladies SP was won by Lithuanian Deimante Kizalaite. 3lutz/2toe (a little wild), 3loop and 2axel (with a very interesting entry and exit). This is another country without ever having much success in singles. But now they have a senior lady with a full set of triples being first alternate for Olympics and this talented junior as well.

    Latvian Angelina Kuchvalska fell on an underrotated 3loop but landed a solid 3salchow/2toe and 2axel to place 5th. A perky performance, I like her attack throughout.

    Always nice to see skaters from countries not traditionally strong, doing well.

    She is 2000, and afaik second half of year, so next season will be her first Junior season.
    See her at JGP, I believe.

    Gubanova is from StPetersburg, coach Urmanov (Olympic champion 1994).
    Born 02 Dec 2002.

    She became taller and now doesn't look as little baby (as it was earlier).
    She is known as girl who first landed 3F at competition being younger than 9 two years ago. And, as we see, not only jumps.
