On topic! Who was everyone's favourite small fed skater? I loved Vivian Papp Hope she stays around for seasons to come!
Vivian is my favorite,too. How cute is she! Her packaging is perfect for her age! She looks so joyful.
In terms of overall performance among the top skaters, I am tied between three skaters
Zhilina is just incredible. I've never seen any junior women jump like her. Midori Ito had similar jumping talent but that was 30 years ago. I don't particularly like her program but it isn't terrible either. It adds nothing to her jumping and spinning skills but it doesn't detract from them either.
Chaeyeon has my favorite music choices in both programs. She is also good at expressing music with her body. She needs to work on the facial expression. But, on the whole, it's all nice.
Sofia is really musical. I enjoy her programs because she is incredible. But, my enjoyment is in spite of the programs not because of them. ( I feel like this about Daria, too) I am glad that there are others who actually enjoy the program choices, they just don't work for me.
Adelia and Maria are both wonderful skaters but their Paint It Black freeskates were both far too heavy and dark. I didn't enjoy either program.
I thought the judging in the freeskate was quite good. The SP scoring was a bit confusing to me. Chaeyeon was not scored fairly imho. However, in the free the judges are equally strict with all skaters. That was nice to see.
