    Good heavens. Amazing spinning. She looks stronger than most girl figure skaters. who is she and who is she coached by? Not Eteri I gather.

I think we all feel like that sometimes we just want to lie down and do nothing but Alina Zagitova works a lot harder than we do. She has a very tough and demanding job. This girl needs a break a serious rest. To reboot for next season.

    She’s coached by Polina’s Shelepen and she was trying 3a yesterday with no harness. I don’t know her name and at what level she competes. Polina has a group of 5 or 6 skaters and I think she is a member of #teamshelepen. You can click on the daily Instagram story to see...it’s still up for a couple of more hours. Just click her avatar.

    Not sure if you remember Polina but she was a former Eteri student and she was there when Yulia first started there.

    With Kostornaia and Zagitova the backloading works because they only need half a ring (or less) to prepare for flips or any jumps in general. Preparation time is money when it comes to backloading. With Zhenya it is already critical because needs the full rink size for her Salchow-Toeloop combo or for Flips. That was the problem with her backloaded program. There was no program anymore because it was jumping jumping jumping in the end. She almost ran out of time. Backloading only works when you don't need much time and rink size to prepare for jumps. Kostner would never be able to do a backloaded program because for her it would be impossible to fit 7 jump passes in 2 minutes.

    Thank you.

    Then Polina is a very young coach if she used to train with Yula under Eteri.

    Probably around 22yrs old. She’s the one on the left in THIS photo from 2011 Junior Grand Prix season. Julia left the KnC to go hug her when she won the JGPF .

    She’s a young one but she’s been coaching a few years now and building up a strong group. She has a little guy in white skates that I think will be really good.

    Looks like a 2A with 60 degrees extra, still laking 300 degrees rotation (or 210 to not get the < mark) so I think there is still a long way to go.
    It seems to me that 3A is the trend among Novice B girls nowadays? So many young ladies trying it!

    Zagitova looks like 20 in her Ex make up, Pogorilaya like 15 in her radio interview.

    Seeing Eteri’s former face creeped me out a little bit.

    that is amazing video very precious thank you so much for that.

    Eteri's girls even had friendship and warmth for each other back then. the reaction of Yulia and Polina was so nice to say and then they had the group hug with the coaches. Amazing.

    I didn't know Eteri had done some work on her face. It's weird seeing her so different in these past videos.

    The difference when her skaters are getting 160-170 points and she's so happy and now when her junior skaters are getting 200+ and she hardly reacts at all *not_impressed_face.jpg*

    Yup ... it’s short but still cool to see one of Polina’s kids giving the 3a an honest send. I hope to see her coaching at the highest level some day. She’s a lot of fun to follow and she makes those kids put in work

    Back then Sambo was kind of the weird cousin to CSKA and the politicking was definitely in CSKA’s favor. Julia’s success starting with Gold at Skate Canada was the beginning of a lot of momentum for Eteri as a coach. The score even surprised them She was always very warm with Julia in the KnC until there relationship soured. Probably CoC incident and the drama with her rejected Aberbukh program. It’s a shame. I hope one day they sit down and work it out. While announcing on Telesport she seems very positive about Eteri and especially her students.
