flanker - Is it possible to add the Russian flag icon to the beginning of the thread title, like the previous ones?

Unfortunately I can't do that. Usually th flag appears when the thread has about four pages, I don't know if that's self-acting or "admin-acting" :)

Really excited to see what Tuktamysheva does this season. I always feel that she is on the edge of breaking through to the top, but its hard to say with the competition getting harsher.

It's just awesome that she still stays so relevant after almost 10 years as a senior. She is the one who brought me to watch figure skating in 2011 so she has a special place in my heart :)

I'm really excited to see how Anna does this season... if we have a season, I think she can win it all, especially as she stabilizes her quads :)

I'm really excited for the new season to start. I'm very curious to see what plushenko is going to with trusova in terms of choreography and packaging after everything that has happened. I'm so excited to see the rest of the girls.

I'm excited but also scared to see what happens this season, especially with the growing 3A with Eteri's previous history. I hope they can overcome everything, and I hope every Russian lady a great season!

Btw, Ksenia Sinitsyna is guarenteed to come to seniors. She has points for 2 GP assignments and is on the reserve team. Vika Vasilieva also has points for one GP, and Russia have enough spots this year to grant her one unlike Gubanova and Tarusina. Anastasia Tarakanova will compete, but it is not known whether in juniors or seniors.

I'm just Sasha's biggest fan, I started watching FS for her. I am so happy but also so scared, I don't doubt Plushenko but he is very inexperienced. I hope Rozanov and Volkov can bring her happiness, health and success!

Is the junior team not set? I thought it was: Valieva, Usacheva, Khromykh.

The "3A" shorthand needs to be abandoned now. Not only do some (or maybe all) of them not like it themselves, but w/ Trusova in Plushenko camp, and Zagitova "back" in Eteri camp, it's unclear whether third A is Trusova of original 3A which with Zagitova became 4A, or if 3A means A.K.+A.S.+A.Z. so better just drop it now for next season.

I expect the overall level of TUT girls will be greatly improved with Trusova dismissed.
No jumper before your eyes helps to concentrate...

Not officially, I believe. Of course anyone please link any info related to still missing info, I will put it into empty columns gradually. The same for russian pairs.

BTW I hope somebody will settle the new threads for men and ice dance, it would be too much for me taking care of all four categories ;)

If you take care of the main/good one, that ought to be sufficient...

Personally, I'd like to see more nations represented at the highest level of ladies singles.

But then again...I'd rather watch the highest level of ladies singles rather than a weaker "parade of nations".

Should all the best skaters come from just a single nation, so be it.

Post Scriptum:
I am not Russian.
I support citius, altius, fortius.
Let be, what may be.

I remember everyone using 4A for Trusova, Tarakanova,Kostornaia,Shcherbakova in 2017. Tarakanova had such good chances!!

I think the correct and polite thing is to drop the 3A forever, not only for the aforementioned reasons but also to avoid confusion of current vs previous usage of it.

In any case, these ladies are all individuals first, and TT second, despite the propaganda stating the opposite.

Can anyone explain why Samodurova and Konstantinova are not in the 'likely to get GP' list despite being in the top 25 world rankings? Samodurova is not on the main team anymore and Konstantinova is off the team completely, but aren't countries obliged to invite someone who's in the top 25? Or does Russian Federation have the last word? Sorry, I keep forgetting how this process works. :/

It's top 24 WS and SB that are guaranteed a spot if their country submits them for consideration (which is how Gubanova and Tarusina got none, despite being on the SB list). Stanislava is 25th, so not guaranteed anything if she's submitted, and with so many skaters ahead of her, she's unlikely to get one.

Sofia's 10th in WS but off the SB list, so guaranteed 1 spot if submitted. I personally think she'll get at least 1 (with the other going to Vasilieva), if not 2 (and Vasilieva not getting any, though I prefer the first option).
