    25 January 2019 GS article by Paula Slater "Samodurova shines; wins European Ladies' title" - https://goldenskate.com/2019/01/samo...-ladies-title/

    Original OP from sneakers:
    impressive, girl with a solid technique
    quite improved since I first saw her at NRW Trophy winning silver behind Gubanova

    she was off the radar and kind of sprung out of nowhere
    another potential from Mishins team

    eligible for JGP this coming season
    6th at Russian junior Nationals

    she isnt your Typical Mishin skater who just pumps jumps

    projects more on the ice and I think her spins are better than Tuks
    the goofy and strange music suits her.

    Isn't Mrs. Mishina the main coach of Sofia? It seems to me that her skaters (and Tataurov's) have more of an individualized style, and far more interesting programs, than her husband's skaters. I don't know how they divide coaching duties there, though.

    At NRW trophy she skates through the music too much because she had to change it from a junior program to an advanced novice one... here's her junior nationals skates.

    a little firecracker
    she has a combination of Tuk and Proklova

    hopefully she doesnt go the Proklova route
    that technique should help her in puberty

    I like Sonya's statement in Instagram: "I love everyone!" She is very modest girl apparently, she always thanks everyone who address to her in a network. Very interesting girl and IMO has a great future in FS

    another clean skate by Sonya in the FS with overall score of 134.16

    http://eiskunstlauf.bev-eissport.de/BO2016/SEG024.HTM
    that clean technique will help her a lot, now she only needs her jump amplitude to be higher

    she'll be amongst the new wonder girls to watch out for in JGP along with Lozko, Tarusina and Nugumanova
    not to mention Konstantinova, Tsurskaya, Fedichkina, and maybe Gubanova

    Sofia at Bavarian Open SP & FS

    SP:

    Well, what can I say, it was Sofia´s day! What a great performance by the young Russian who came second at NRW and tomorrow she will pull out the Vampire again *shiver*. Today, she was elegant and confident, I just love that she never stops performing while on the ice and she is very confident as well, making it look so effortless and maybe she also got a bit help from up there, as she is a very religous person, always asking for support from up the sky. There is not a single part of her body, that is lose, all is integreted in the choreographie.
    I love Russian girls / skaters, as they bring something to the table that other nations dont have yet and I think its a lot about the Russian tradition and the programs, which tell a skater right from the first moment on, that they are a star and special and that they have to be positive at all times.

    Sofia performed once again the triple Lutz - double Toe and she might even go higher tomorrow and that layback at the end, so gorgeous, just like her outfit.

    FS:

    Well, what can I say once again, I salute you Sofia Samodurova! She just did it again, a flawless performance with great in character skating.

    I love how every piece of her body, but also the dress is a part of the choreography, like the tiny lift of her skirt at the beginning, or the fierce look on her face, when she enters the stepsequence!
    This is how you have to do it, progression in a program is so important - even if its the last thirty seconds of your program, always bring something new to the table and she really did exactly this, in an overall wonderfully balanced and dramatic program. A program that featured huge difficulties with six triples, including the Lutz - Toe combination at the start and level three´s for her spins, spins which were fully integrated and unique, fitting to her story.

    Sofia´s landings were spot on, perfect and full of confidence and yet, she stayed in character, always adding an emote, or a movement with her hands. The Russian is a skater who not once left her role during these three minutes - brilliant figure skating if you ask me.
    At times you wish these skaters could skate extended versions of their programs, so amazing are they.

    Sadly can not post pictures here

    not exactly... only in FS... but it seems to me that Sonya will be able to win against Liza N. in the near future - she has better jumping technique... but she needs to work well over the component part - she still strongly loses to Nugumanova by this

    She also needs to work on her flutz. That cost her many points in the SP. If not for that, she would have had the highest combined TES.
