    Yeah, it's really a shame she did not perform her best here. She actually has the best all-around package when she hits it. I actually felt her FS had some highlights despite the mistakes. Can't really say the same for Sakhanovich or Medvedeva or even Proklova tonight.

    Why Medvedeva was trying 2A-3T when her 2A is scary to watch is beyond me. Had she stuck with what was a seemingly secure/consistent 3S-3T she could have had a shot at winning the title, also the scaling back on the difficulty of the spins didn't help.

    My first attempt at spelling "Stuck" was "Stook", so I'm going back to bed.

    I agree with you. Medvedeva was really pretty dismal tonight. and Polina was great!

    worst skating skills - Medvedeva
    bad technique ( those ugly bent knees ) - Sakhanovich
    headcase of the event - Wang

    Sotskova's gap among the rest should be higher

    I thought Sakhanovich was really enjoyable and her PCS was too low. She has a lot of transitions in her program - a spiral to a triple triple?! Who does that?!

    Polina Edmunds had a great skate, but the competition has 2 parts, and she completely bombed the SP. Based on that, she didn't deserve to medal. That's the way it is, and hopefully she can learn to deal better with the pressure in the future and compete better at Junior Worlds. Medvedeva isn't as good or as polished as Polina at this point, but she didn't have any major errors, and Polina had two very big ones.

    Wang was embarrassing. It's like she didn't even try.

    Don't see the point of wondering where Chen would have placed.

    There is no real point. This is a forum and speculation and idle thoughts are allowed and I'll indulge if I so choose. Karen Chen has a different style than the rest of the field, and her presence would have added another dimension to the competition. And assuming a reasonably strong and clean skate, I'd like to have seen how she stacked up against the Russians. It's very likely Chen will be a Jr. Worlds pick for the USA, just as some of the other Russian competitors here might be for their country.

    Medvedeva had a stumble on her 2A-3T combo ( doing a combo on her worst jump, the 2A was not a good thing )
    jumps were tentative and borderline tiny.

    your saying Sakhanovich deserves higher PCS ? she should always get less than Sotskova, about 2 points less always like in this event

    Yes, I sorely missed Chen here. i hope she recovers from her injury and is able to go to nationals and jr. worlds. I think Polina has a good shot at a Jr. Worlds berth also.

    Yes, it's a shame. I would hae preferred to see her two. But I hope she can heal in time for US Nats. I'm glad she withdrew instead of risking further injury

    Speaking of something pointless, I won't even bother replying to sky_fly...

    Only two girls got ''e'' deduction for their jumps and all of them have 3F and 3lutz. They are front of the senior judges too.

    I wish Karen was here. She would have been the 1st, I think. I really liked Proklova and Edmunds. Serafima was lovely, but her landings did look scary And also I think Polina should have been 3d at least, ahead of Medvedeva fo sure! Sotskova surprised me)

    Medvedeva is injured according to icenetwork articles, so her performances make a bit more sense now. I still think she can bounce back. Well-deserved victory for Sotskova, I think she is the the fastest and most mature of the Russian ladies here. Edmunds was great but it reminds me a bit of Wang last season, 2nd in the FS with a great skate but off the podium because of a bad SP and the ladies ahead of her holding it together. Proklova wasn't her best but I still like her posture. Sakhanovich is very graceful but the technique is ugly/scary. She looks pretty mature physically for 13 though so maybe she gets all the puberty woes out of the way early and can do very well in a few years when the other girls struggle? Too soon to tell but she has potential. This should be a big confidence boost to Sotskova, hope she makes it to JW. Wonder how Medvedeva will do at Senior Nats, I had originally thought she'd be top 4 but maybe now 6th-10th place is more realistic.

    Great news for Polina though, no URs in the FS and that's with Shin Amano as the caller! I just hope she doesn't grow too much more, from what I can tell though, her dad is quite tall but her mother is pretty petite (shorter than Polina) and her grandma average (about the same height as Polina), so maybe she will be okay. Sotskova looks quite tall for 13, too, it looks great on the ice but I hope she doesn't get too tall.
