Well, two seasons ago, all that had a JGP assignment got a free pass to Junior Nats. It would mean that Zakharova qualified anyway although she did 2 stages here. But, I don't know if they have changed the rules.I know all the junior girls attending the final aka Adeliya, Zhilina, Sofia A & M get a pass to both senior and junior nationals but am i remembering wrong or isn't it a rule that every skater that attended jgp gets a pass to junior nationals or was it every skater that attended 2 jgp events? If so Kullikova and Zinina at least are also eligible without competing in Russian junior cup if only 1 counts then Liza B also is eligible. Maria Z took 2 silver already in Russian cup so she qualified already. Thats potentially 8 spots gone already for Junior nationals.
Dmitrieva needs to do far better in her second event if she wants a trip to nationals. I think she might need that podium finish to make up the difference.
Poor Masha P, when she on she is so lovely to watch but her jumps are not stable at all. In previous seasons she has been a sp skater and has trouble in fs but in Russian cup series this season neither her sp or fs has worked.
I wanted to see Latushkina in jr nats again so bad
Dmitrieva should not go for the 3A in the short, it is too risky imo. She needs to play it safe next time, and yes she probably needs a podium finish.
