Revelation of the Season
with most Veterans turning over their spot now to the younger newcomers
aside from already successful senior newcomers and at Worlds like Gracie, Julia etc.
Anna Pogorilaya - this girl I will tell you was an unknown 3 years ago in Russian junior circuit finishing as low as 18th in junior national competitions
So Youn Park - didnt even follow who she is
Sinitsina / Zhiganshin - 7th in Worlds debut
Antipova / Maisuradze
Stolbova / Klimov
3 ladies were cute and bright.
Polina's senior choice is very brave and looks good. (already Olympian.)
Anna has best jump skill among the russian girls. (she maybe keep it after body change.)
SoYoun finally get it. She get over the lack of international competition experience.
S/Z were Junior World Champions in 2012 - they didn't exactly appear out of nowhere

If anything, look at Zijun Li who had spectacular Sr. Worlds debut last year, only to fall from grace to hit the rock bottom in Saitama a year later. I liked what I saw in Park today and naturally want to get excited about her, but the history tends to repeat itself. Let's see what she can do from here on...

Honestly, there has been none.
I’m not sure if it is their own lack of individuality or the overall direction the development of FS has taken but the youngest generation look desperately boring to my eye.
And G&P probably would have beat them if they hadn't had the twizzle deduction in their SP.

For me, S/K. And Nam, with the performance from the worlds.
