    In GP, do countries make the list of girls that the host can pick from. Last year I notice Skate America took a 14 year old Radionova.

    Chuckm seems to know more about the GP selection and World rankings then about anyone on this forum. Maybe he can help answer this. Every time I try to look up questions like this I'm bombarded with 70 plus pages of guidelines. I'm sure there is an easy to find source out there that just seems to elude me.

    Boys are usually slower than girls so you can't see them blossom at this age. Naturally they will show their full talents at the age of 18-23. So we will have to wait.

    This girl is incredible!!! She has very good skating skills, deep edges and great jumps for someone her age (she was born in Dec 2002). She placed 7th in Russian junior Nats this year with clean programmes including 3flip/3toe, 2axel, 3loop (SP) and 3flip/3toe, 3lutz, 2axel, 3flip/2toe, 3loop, 3salchow, 3toe/2toe/2toe (FS). She did clean 3flip/3toes already at age 9!

    Another interesting Russian girl is Elizaveta Nugumanova (born Aug 2002): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1nGRrVg7eE&app=desktop

    I want to know who she is too. She looks like she could be a future star. Beautiful skater already.

    Miyu Honda https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhGEeEEQyBY in this Japanese TV show. She is not only a skater but a little actor in Japansese TV series.

    Thank you Sara. She is good and cute.

    If you know other young skaters please do list them here. I think I'm about to start a full immersion into these young ladies.

    Elizaveta reminds me a lot of Serafima. A lot. Is she from St. Petersburg as well? She just has very similar technique and artistry. This is a good thing! I must admit that I almost turned it off after the half loop but I'm glad I stayed tuned in. I just can't get down with a half loop most of the time. Too disruptive for my taste. Everything else was great. A little forced on the jump landings but great artistry.

    Yes, she is from St. Petersburg, but she is coached by Mishina, while Sakhanovich is coached by A. Pisarenko.

    Maybe it's the water. I love Serafima so its exciting to see another little Serafima in the system. This is getting crazy over there. So much talent.
