She had a go fund me page to try to get financial support to carry on but whatever the reasons it's so sad , she was such a big expansive skater . I loved her. Even this past season her program's were unique. I shall miss her. Another young talent lost early. Such is the depth in Russia.
Such is the mismanagement of young skaters more like.

Don't know if it's been posted but Davydov's team have been doing off ice quads and 3A (incl. 4T-4T 😱) and Frolova is among them. How do people think she'd rank if she had a 3A or 4T?
I love Frolova and if she has a 3A and/or 4T, I think she will do great on the junior grand prix.
And it will make her competitive with seniors , so maybe as high as top 5.
I put her on my Olympic dream team. :)

Zakharova! Yes! I was hoping she would get a spot. She earned that spot with her 4th place at Russian Cup. I can wait to see her compete. I’m hoping she can come in 2nd place. It is going to be super competitive getting a 2nd spot in the Junior Circuit for the Russian girls.

I understand why Sofia Akatieva and Adeliya Petrosian are not on the list as they are obviously not intended to meet Sofia Samodelkina. Each of those three will surely get her own two spots without meeting each other to maximize their chances for the JGPF (and possibly full russian JGPF).

On the other hand, a thing, that is rather confusing for me, is that I do not see Daria Sadkova on the list of subs. That can mean she also gets a chance at least at one event to be without the presence of any skater of the strongest trio, but it can also mean they do not count with her, which would be weird as she's the member of the national team.
Maybe with Daria they figured they would send her alongside Sofia A or Adelia to limit the number of coaches traveling? Hopefully she’ll be at least on the sub list for the events that her training mates will be attending.

That's also possible. First entry together with Sofia or Daria and the second one if she will deliver well.

Actually, the caption says they're 4T-4T but the rotation is so fast I really can't tell...

We also know that Eteri's skaters just got their programs. Maybe they planned for later spots for them?

Never heard any female skater landed a Q-Q combo like 4T-4T. What's the source?

It was off-ice jumping drills, the video was floating around Instagram. I don't remember Frolova ever doing even a single quad on the ice, so somehow I doubt she starts landing a combination quad-quad on ice anytime soon.

Maybe it was just that she was unmanageable? She seemed to be front and center of her own drama and its consequences.
I don't think it was that exactly, I think she just burned out. From her own words, she wanted to quit, but felt bad because her parents had sunk so much into her skating. The Eteri group was just too intense for her I think.

Alright, while no one probably cares, I’ll be away with no internet access for the next 3 and half weeks.

I taught my dad how to use sports.ru so he can write me the news!

Also, if there is any major chaos, controversy or drama, someone please PM me so again, my dad (or someone) can write to me!

Thanks and see you guys soon!
