    JGP Croatia 2012 Ladies Preview

    One thing is sure about JGP Croatia: the girl who wins the ladies event will be someone who has never won a JGP event before. Hannah Miller USA and Rika Hongo JPN have both won silver medals at their earlier events this year. If either wins, they will likely make the JGPF. Hannah's score at JGP Austria is about 10 points higher than Rika's at JGP Courchevel, so perhaps Hannah has the edge. If Angela Wang could put together two good skaters, she has a shot too, and as the bronze medallist from Lake Placid, she might make the JGPF as well. And then there is Russia's Anna Pogorilaya whose scores at Russian competitions indicate she might well medal at this, her first ISU competition. Two others to keep an eye for other reasons:

    Mimi Tanasorn Chindasook THA has been studying at Ice Castles under Anthony Liu & Frank Carroll. There is a note on her ISU bio:

    Chindasook received an ISU scholarship. She has moved to the USA for training.
    I didn't know the ISU gave scholarships! There is a grainy little video of her from a show in June, and I'll be interested to see whether Frank & Anthony have done miracles there, and she finishes a bit higher than in the past. It's possible! She looked very good in that show video.

    And this is the first ISU competition for any skater from Cyprus, which only got its ISU accreditation in September. Kristina Dubrovskaya CYP is the first skater in the short program here, symbolizing the new beginnings for her federation.

    Enjoy the show!
