    In any case, I'm glad that Adelina delivered. Keeping my fingers crossed and hope she nails everything in the free-skate segment.
    No no no no no I prayed she would ditch that and she did. Don't give her ideas!

    What's up with Polina Korobeynikova this season? Did she not qualify for Nationals? I know she withdrew from her GP assignment.. has she competed at all this season?

    Here is the explanation I gave when Mrs. P asked the same in the Predictions thread:

    Here is the explanation:

    hanca is being a bit diplomatic here. Korobeynikova did not withdraw from the GP's herself - it was the Federation that withdrew her entries because she did not do as well as they expected in her first Nationals qualifier (8th).

    As hanca pointed out, Polina K went on to get a podium in her second qualifier. But, the decision had already been made to send Gosviani to GP's instead, and it wouldn't have been fair on Nikol for the chance to be offered, and then whipped away.

    So, it's the Federation's fault for not having enough faith in Polina K in the first place.

    But, I'm totally biased, as I am a fan of Polina K!

    zamboni step - So I went to an Indian restaurant to have a posh meal to treat myself for Christmas and once the booze kicked in, I had this 'epiphany.'

    I remember Volchkova being unusually tall for a skater when she was competing. Maybe she did indeed extend a helping hand to taller skaters, having been in their shoes herself?

    I forgot the other point I wanted to make (it's probably the Christmas booze again ).

    I just watched Leonova's SP.

    The typical Morozovian choreography was terrible (front loaded, element layout not balanced, lack of transitions, blah blah blah).

    HOWEVER.

    I haven't seen Leonova skate with so much joy, confidence and attack in ages. And tons of PERK! She was incredible.

    3toe/3toe was HUGE, 2axel was solid and 3flip was ok. But more importantly, the presentation, the performance was just second to none.

    Congrats to her for proving everybody that doubted she still had it in her (including me)! Show the youngsters how it's done, Grandma Leonova!

    Ahh, thank you!! It's a shame she didn't get the chance to compete in the GP and then missed Nationals. She was so promising when she placed 4th at Euros a few seasons ago.

    It's better than her current LP dress, that dress is awful.

    see i think the one at 'the ice' is the worse one. it's ill fitting and too revealing (panty line; looks like she has on a thong near that black lace part), plus its hideous. it also makes her look younger (with that hairdo). so it does not work for me. she should use the burgandy dress with the pink tail which makes her look more mature, IMO.

    3 gorgeous young girls. Good luck to them in the LP, especially to Adelina who seems to be more fragile.
    I expect Elena and Julia to kick some *** in the LP
