    It's way too early to say Anna is the future Yuna Kim. Kim is a legend. Anna is just getting started. But she has the tools. Whether can further develop it and become a champion like Kim is up to her and Russia. Yuna had the total package of excellent technical skills, great artistry, mental toughness, and heart of a champion. It took Yuna years to develop the last three and become the complete skater. Let's see if Anna can do the same. She certainly has the potential.

    Feel bad for them. Can you imagine the stress of trying to win one of the top spots, amongst so many other talented determined girls, some with better backing than others...

    I agree. Some of them should change nationalities or they are never going to be able to participate in the World Championships or Olympics. The competition is just so fierce! The Russian girls are all so consistent and have great technical content, because they would be buried in the standings at Russian Nationals otherwise. Even Tuktamysheva, who finished 10th at Russian Nationals, would make most countries' teams. But she has no shot in Russia - because the competition is just too tough and other skaters have better reputations.

    I agree. It is sad that some countries have no one and others have so many that even 3Lz-3T in their SP and 7 triples clean FS will not guarantee them their spot at the Europeans/Worlds. Such a waste of talent. With Jenna McCorkell retiring, GBR doesn't have any lady! Come on, girls, can't you find any connection to Britain? Any great grandmother being British by any chance? Alternatively, I could adopt you...

    I for 1 am so glad Russia got 3 spots back for the ladies, they are probably the deepest country in ladies right now. But it's really going to be interesting (and a little scary probably for the skaters) about who is at the top each season and if they stay at the top after puberty hits.

    Anna P is the most robotic skater I've ever seen. Yulia is of course impressive as always but Anna cranking jump and element after element without a single emotional and mental connection to what she was executing.

    Being born in the geographically asian part of Eurasia doesn't make someone Asian. The boundaries of Asia are culturally determined, and there's no way Yekaterinburg is an "Asian" city. And Julia is not Asian.
