    With all the respect I have for you Meoima, it's just you imho.

    If I have to pick on sth, I'd say her spins here were a little bit worse than in short, most likely because of fatigue in the end of the program.

    Well, I mostly follow men you know. I love big jumps. I have some exception for ladies. Yulia is one. I love her no matter how big or small her jumps are. But with the rest, I am quite picky.

    Imo her axels are small but the rest is great!
    She leans forward a LOT when she lands the other jumps. Not a bad thing, only sth I noticed.
    I agree, the only thing I'd "criticize" would be her Biellmann, not a lot of flexibility I think therefore she avoids any stretching positions in spins.

    But we're being picky here
    I definitely wouldn't call her the best russian skater! But one of the great juniors, very promising !
    Btw does anybody also think that, even though she's only 14, she looks way older? Older than Yulia or Elena for example.

    What I meant is that today, August 30th, she would probably be in best form of them all, right?
    Many seniors are in preparation mode and having some probs with programs, jumps, injuries, etc..

    I can see Serafima on podium at WC 2016 (after this WC for senior). I hope she improve her spins, though.

    Oh sorry I misunderstood. Well from that point of you you might be right

    Russian nationals will be carnage for the next 4 years!!
    It's just so impossible to say who will come out on top and go to South Korea, it could be ANYBODY of those junior+senior ladies competing right now!
