Okay it was the junior world championship. She came in 1st in the short and then 8th in the long.

Polina A came in third overall and Polina S came in fourth.
Yeah the three Russians went 3, 4, 5 at junior worlds, they were the highest placing country in ladies. And realistically, it could have been even better, as Polina S bombed the SP there and Anna bombed the LP there, with both girls skating their best, they probably could have gone 2, 3, 4 or even 1, 3, 4. Polina S and Anna were both struggling a bit with consistency at the end of last season, both girls had grown a lot in a short time and were likely adjusting to the changes. I agree about Liza's 3a - it's gorgeous, and even if the success rate isn't great, it's good she's at least going for it.
