    I adore her Vivaldi program too! It's a good idea to keep the program for current season.

    It worry me that she is not in the list of competitors of the first four JGP events. Is it due to her injury?

    I've been watching her JGPF skates a lot the last few days. Such interesting music choices and such a unique approach. Hope she gets thru her injury and growth issues and gets back to form and soon

    This is my favorite performance by Maria https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LI4A...PkENg_wTnyOLm3

    Incredibly elegant for her age, flexible spins, balletic grace in body movements, refined, classical presentation, magnificent layback spin with smooth transition into beautifully pliable Biellmann, entrancing step sequence with smooth multi-directional changes, wonderful layback of the head during the turns, and nicely mixed with wonderful illusion spins with her head down in a camel position and her legs revolving in a tilted spherical trajectory. Fine leap into a flying sit spin with full leg extension. Erect posture entering and exiting jumps while spreading her arms out with a dramatic flair with her eyes fixed on the audience when finished.

    I just found the events that Maria Sotskova is entered in for the JGP but as a substitute. Is she still injured? Does anyone know when she will be able of skate?


    ISU JGP Czech Skate 2014 03.09.2014 - 06.09.2014

    ISU JGP Nagoya TV Cup 2014 11.09.2014 - 14.09.2014

    Her schedule looks kind of rough: skating two weeks back to back. I hope she handles it well.

    Maria is listed as a substitute for those competitions you mentioned. She is main entry for Tallinn.

    Any news on her current status? Hope she can compete well and qualify to JGP final.

    Thanks for the information. As you said, I believe it was in the JGP thread where I read that Maria was scheduled to perform in the Tallinn Cup in late September. I just forgot to post it here. The only other information I have comes from fsuniverse:

    Sotskova has recovered from the Meniscus injury that kept her out of 2014 junior Worlds. She then had a groin strain which prevented her from training in July. Nevertheless, she returned in time to take part in the Russian test skates. However, the missed training and a growth spurt have meant that she is not yet back to her best. Hopefully, she will be soon.

    I hope she returns to full health quickly and skates even better this season.

    She takes second place after the SP (59.95). Polina Tsurskaya leads (61.57).

    Past season Maria had at inner competitions SP score 64+.
    Maybe, she did not fully restore?

    She was not bad but somewhat slow and cautious. The flip in combination was impressive though.

    Maria changed her FS, now music is soundtrack to "Funny Face" and "Breakfast at Tiffany's".

    I agree that old music was weird but I love her choreography - it's so particular with close attention to details I think her choreographer should work with top skaters.
