    Enough going on to keep us occupied during the lead up to actual season start :-)

    No summer break from following Russian skating developments for many of us either ;-)

    I am most interested in how the Khrustalniy Awesome Aces will fare in their first senior season, will the 3A debut with 3A's in the SP?
    And will the fresh Khrustalniy juniors have the same ground shaking impact on progress in female figure skating?

    I wouldn't be surprised if the strongest juniors will debut with quads, to keep Khrustalniy in the lead over the rest of the world.
    Triple Axel's and Quads that will have to be prepared silently over the summer, so little rest for the girls and training staff and only a family vacation break.
    Khrustalniy has the structure in place, is capable, confident and determined, so only needs to keep the production line rolling ...

    I expect complete 'radio silence' from Khrustalniy, nobody spilling any secrets or feeding the gossip mill.

    1 spot - unlikely to get 2 but anything's possible: Anna Tarusina, Anastasia Gubanova, Serafima Sakhanovich, Stanislava Konstantinova, and Maria Sotskova

    Skaters likely to get JGP spots:
    2 spots: Kamila Valieva, Maya Kromykh, Alena Kanysheva, Ksenia Sinitsyna, Anastasia Tarakanova, Viktoria Vasilieva, and Daria Usacheva
    1 spot: Viktoria Safonova, Anna Frolova

    Intrigues:
    1. New Eteri skaters: Alena Kanysheva and Ksenia Chistyakova
    2. Debut of Eteri stars: Alexandra Trusova, Anna Shcherbakova, and Alena Kostornaya
    3. Ladies who will make senior GP debut: Who will get GP spots? Anna Tarusina and Anastasia Gubanova are the likely candidates
    4. Ladies who will make nationals: who will make it through the bloodbath?
    5. Quadsters: we've seen a quad from Sofia Akatieva in training and Elizaveta Berestovskaya has tried it before in competition. Who else will debut? Tarakanova is training a 4Lo, Zagitova and Trusova are training 4Fs, etc.
    You did it again SFM! hopefully this Russian ladies thread will be a little less contentious than the last one was. But with 3A joining the senior ranks it could get crazier!

    I've said goodbye to the old thread just to say hello to this one. It's like in Charles Dickens novel with the ghost of the last and future season

    I am wondering what will happen with Leonova, Guliakova, Tsurskaya, Panenkova next year. They are out of GP spots - will they qualify for Nationals?

    And will we ever see Fedichkina, Radionova, Pogorilaya, Mikhailova, Istomina, Gracheva, Talalaikina, Nugumanova again?

    And what about Sakhanovich, Gubanova, Tarusina, Konstantinova, Sotskova and GP spots? They can all be in - or out.

    It is going to be an exciting season.

    If I recall correctly, Pogorilaya is officially retired now.

    It's insane how many national, European, world, and Olympic titles this group has at the junior and senior levels.

    I wonder what Eteri's plans for Chistyakova are? She's old enough for JGP but doesn't seem in line to get one. Maybe she'll try to have her pull a Kostornaya and earn one last minute. Then she'd be able to have 5 girls on the GP and on the JGP, wow.

    Only two.
    Only Olympics Gold medal makes sense in Russia. Other titles and medals usually known to sport related officials.

    This might have been answered in the last thread, but is there a reason Anastasia Tarakanova is not moving up to senior? She has the potential to make quite an entrance and a name for herself. Sure she might not have a first senior season of medals due to the current talent pool, but she is more than capable of pushing Mishin’s girls out of the conversation. No offence intended, I enjoy them, I just don’t think they are even close to measuring up to some of the girls who are staying in juniors despite being age eligible for seniors.

    The most ridiculous and sad thing about it all is the fact that if all ladies with guaranteed GP spots get one (12 ladies) and juniors repeat the success of previous years on JGP earning 5 spots in the final (and they are very much capable of doing that), only 1 or 2 spots (out of 18) will be left free for Russian nationals to get via Russian cup events. That is absolutely not enough. The chances of skaters not on GP/in JGP final to get to Russian nationals are practically nonexistent.
    My biggest wish for next season is that a miracle happens and RusFed increases the number of entries in ladies to 24 (and in Pairs to 16).
    Well, one can dream

    Sadly, her SB is a bit shy of being in the top 24 meaning she won’t get senior GP assignments, and she herself has said she is staying in juniors. However, I’m sure (at least I think) we will see her in at least one senior challenger event in addition to the junior Grand Prix, and in senior events domestically. So, although she won’t be in the senior GP, we’ll be seeing her in plenty of events, which is a silver lining. But I totally agree that she deserves to be seen in seniors (and if she were from any other country, even including Japan, she would get to).

    That is such a shame! It’s frustrating as well, because had she not made the coaching change, the first half of her season may have gone a bit smoother (due to no changes to technique etc), and she might have managed a higher sb. Oah well, fingers crossed that all goes well and we can see her move up to seniors the following season.
