    It's Younger Age Russian Nats, older group (born 2002 and 2003).
    She scares me. Julia has to quickly get all her medals before Anastasia will step on the senior ice in 2018.

    By the way - I watched about dozen of younger group girls (born 2004 and later) skates and haven't noticed anyone very special. Have you? Or this amazing Russian flood of female skating talent has finally come to an end?

    Первенство России (Championship of Russia) http://fsrussia.ru/results/1415/spec...1415/index.htm
    Link to the short program results: http://fsrussia.ru/results/1415/spec...415/SEG008.HTM
    It's all for novice, divided on two age groups, as I understood.

    I'm so happy they do not compete against each other because I adore this girl and can't decide between her and Yulia then.
    She isn't going to at the Olympics before 2022, and I'm fine with that.

    By the way - I watched about dozen of younger group girls (born 2004 and later) skates and haven't noticed anyone very special. Have you? Or this amazing Russian flood of female skating talent has finally come to an end?
    No I haven't, but she is so special.

    These are 10 year olds and younger(Tsurskaya who is 2 years younger skated with Proklova, Sotskova, Sima). There was a slight drop off after Sotskova-Proklova-Medvedeva-Sima but they're better than they've ever been at the younger ages now.

    Viktoria Vasilieva just turned 11( pretty sure she could have skated in the younger group) and is JGP eligible the year after Nugamanova and Gubanova. She is competing in the older group. She's scored in the upper 150's twice.

    Anna Shcherbakova just move to Eteri's group and she was 2nd in the youngest group.

    Here she is in a local news story... also of note is the huge lines to get into the school after the Olympics.

    Thanks for interesting link.


    Btw. - it's not the end of season in Russia!
    I was checking Shcherbakova stats and found out she will take part in "Хрустальный конёк" ("Crystal skate") tournament on 4-6th of April: http://www.fskate.ru/results/tour/1340.html

    Only three top places from Younger Age Championship (groups older and younger) qualified:
    Older group - Gubanova, Mitrofanova, Soloveva
    Younger group - Tarakanova, Trusova, Shcherbakova.

    Looks like very elite event!

    Very nice!


    So, Anna Shcherbakova's mother (I think) has yt channel with some early skates of Anna, like this one at 8yo:

    I love how no matter how young and tiny skaters is, after skate on the ice appears even younger and tinier little one who hands over gifts and flowers.
