Woah Polina still is first in FS.......
So scary looking! Not at all nice to look at. Her marks were too high.

Actually I enjoyed Maria Sotskova's program. The only one out of the Russian babies tonight. Hm....the score tracker is dropping on her too.
Wow. Really like Maria Sotskova's program and yes, it is well choreographed with lots of nice details. She did a great job here. I had not seen her skate before this competition and I think she's the cream of the crop today. My only quibble is that last section of music, really too heavy.
Polina ends up with the second best FS and the highest TES for the night. Oh well, hope she learns from this experience and come back strong at Nationals.
Unless Ashley changes things tomorrow night, Polina will have the three highest TES scores among the U.S. ladies in the FS.
This is a good group of girls; on a different night, based on skates, the results could be different. But it's Sotskova's night tonight Way to bring your best when it counts.
Polina Edmunds should have been on this podium if it wasn't for yesterday's disaster. Moral of story isn't that much different than the old 6.0 days: SP can't win you the competition, but it can sure lose it for you.
We can only wonder where Karen Chen might have placed had she been here.....
She should have received higher PCS, IMO. Don't quite see how Serafima Sakhanovich equaled her there.

Medvedva ahs poor skating skills
Sakhanovich bent knees
Polina is too leggy for now
Proklova is tiny
Wang is a headcase
Sotskova is teh total package
congrats girl !
Best comeback EVOR!
I love the transitions in that program, you don't see many doing them into a 2A-3T. She definitely deserved her scores here even if I thought she was a little boosted in the short. I have to say I'm a little bit disappointed by how tentative Medvedeva was, and I'm not even a fan! She had and still has the highest scoring FS in the junior even this year but just seemed to nervous to skate it.
I can't help but be in awe of how good Sakhanovich's 3F-3T was, yes she was off axis after the first part and yes the landing overall was scary. But she did a 3T with on arm over her head with not very much speed going into it, and maintained the speed! That's impressive.

Wang was the disappointment of the competition. But to me, Sakhanovitch was the weakest link in terms of unattractive skating style and sloppy technique. I see some serious technical work in her future or she's going to fall by the wayside in a tough Russian ladies competitive market. Let's not even discuss the (lack of) artistry or musicality....
Medvedeva should have been off the podium
and Polina in 3rd
Medvedva was skating stone faced with poor skating skills
her PCS marks have rightfully low
