    If I were them I'd save it for Russian Senior Nats. They won't get on the podium there anyway (most likely) and it will get everyone talking about them even more.
    I would go with the triple twist also because we need to remember that they got 8.31 points for their 3Tw4 twist in JGP Czech Skate and they would need to have a really consistent and good quad twist to top that. Otherwise it is not worth it.

    True

    Very well done to Polina and Dmitrii!

    I wonder if they will go for the quad twist in the FS after all...it is in their planned content. They have the lead right now and will get to skate last so maybe they'll adjust their layout depending on how Mishina/Galliamov score.

    Also I hope he didn't hurt his lip too badly...I wonder if perhaps her knee made contact during the lift dismount?

    It is possible to do that but I wonder if it is common that skaters would follow how the other skaters/teams are scoring? I have a general view that it is a lot more common to concentrate on your doing and not to follow others at all but I have no concrete evidence on how skaters in general will approach this matter.

    I would imagine that it wouldn't be Kostiukovich/Ialin following the scores but their coach, but you're probably right. I guess any adjustments to the plan (which currently includes the quad twist) will be made first thing tomorrow morning so they can do a proper run through.

    I have a feeling that they didn't expect to be leading here after the SP and I just wonder if it might make them reconsider including the twist.

    Yeah, but both M/G and K/I are part of the same training group, so the coaches will know how M/G have done obviously but what is not known if K/I would want to know how M/G did. I would guess that skaters/teams rarely asks about how other skaters/pairs did right before their own FS but that is just a guess.

    JGP Final.

    By the way, their score of 66.84 points is a new World Junior Record.

    Was at the JFPF today and it was my first time seeing any of the junior pairs. I have to say I was absolutely shocked at how good their skating skills are. Their edges are so smooth and silent, it was honestly better than many of the senior ice dancers. They both need to work on jump/throw jump landings, but wow were their skating skills impressive

    That was a superb FS and a superb competition. They actually scored better than what the World junior record was before JGP Final started but still it wasn't enough to win.

    Russian Junior Nationals and Junior Worlds will be super interesting to watch.

    I think they will also go to Senior Nationals this year.

    Photos from the GPF.

    As they should. B/K might have the inside lane for the 3rd Euros and Worlds spot but it should be very interesting battle over bronze medal between B/K, P/K, M/G and K/I.

    I noticed that the OP doesn't have Dima's Insta. Someone should add it to the OP.

    They can battle for bronze, but no chance for Euros since K/I don't have the Sr tech minimums.

    K/I reminds me of S/K in a way. Especially Kostiukovich to Stolbova. Bodysuits and style of programs that are not normally the standard ‘Russian’ style etc. But I am glad that they seem to have a better and ‘harmonious’ relationship than S/K. Love these two, they are so sweet and don’t want them to ever split up.
