The battle in my opinion is between Adeliia (Senior), Margarita (Junior), Alena (Junior), and Elena (Novice).

Shcherbakova started out the same way if you listen to her latest interviews regarding her weight by the Olympic season though she was having to maintain her weight with concerning methods.
I think for Anna she said it became harder in her later teens (she's 19 now) especially starting the olympic season?
So by the time she was 17 it was hard to maintain weight like she easily used to before in her early to mid teens, but Sofia is already in her late teens at 17 and she says it's still easy for her now at 17 turning 18 (she turns 18 this august).
Maybe by 20+ years old it might change since metabolism can change with age, but so far it is easy for her which is good.

That's intellectual dishonesty.
Hey, thats my line 🙄

The greatest jumping performance from a female senior Russian skater, and overall the best performance in history from any female skater. History.
Bazyluk undoubtedly. Petrosian not as clear to me. She struggled too much with the 4F and had no 3A. Her 5 jump combo also earned 27 meanwhile last year Akateva took 28. Its unlikely Petrosian can be labeled the greatest quadster yet over Trusova or Akateva.

As a whole and purely content-wise probably, but partially and emotionally I would still put three consecutive clean free skates of 2021 Russian Championships on top of the list. What Sasha, Kamila and Anya presented on that day under pressure was unthinkable.

Yes I forget about Akatieva. It is a shame she isn't competing and I don't think she will ever reach her former heights again. A tragedy.

Trusova never had clean landings ever. Never had a 3A. Her 5 quads claim to fame is some what fraudulent imo.

But Petrosian has taken this form now across two seasons. Early December last year she sat out the jump tournament because of injury and obviously that injury affected her at the Russian championships, but she was back to form at the GP final and won easily.

Now has brought that to a second season, won the Russian championships the toughest tournament on the planet, was the best senior by an enormous margin at the jump tournament. She will win Spartakiad she starts to stake a claim for being one of the best Russian skaters in history. This is total dominance.

I'm just talking purely about the jumps, but Kamila especially was perfect that day (it was the two greatest performances in history). But I understand if you take into account what was at stake (an Olympics spot and personal pride with this intense rivalry), you're right it was better. But I'm only looking at the jumps in isolation. They of course were performing entire programs in addition to the jumps so cannot attempt the same level of jumps.

Shes already one of the best ladies skaters in history. She has 3 seasons of artistry and technique matched by few especially when considering a combination of the two. If were talking Russian shes top 5 already judging peak shapes specifically. And the only non Russian I really respect to the highest degree is Yuna.

Fraud ! She was the PROTOTYPE.she was revolutionary. She did it first then everyone else. She fell but she definitely jumped those quads till the end never giving up, she never played it safe, she pushed her body to the max.
There is a reason why every girl that jumps quad is called "the next trusova".
Yes the girls who came after trusova have soft landings beautiful quads but they all play safe they would drop it for medals.
Trusova never played it safe. She pushed the quad game, she made woman skating competitive.

Finally something from Anastasia Zinina:
I am recovering now. Unfortunately, during the test skates I got coronavirus, which caused complications to the respiratory and nervous system. So far I was cured and returned to training.

She may have pushed the quad game, but she failed at being a well- rounded skater. She's pretty much retired at this point and her only senior title is 1 she won because the original winner was DQed.

I still think 5 quads is somewhat fraudulent because several were dirty jumps. Valieva's clean quads and clean triple axel was much more impressive.
Trusova was dirty at Olympics and gained a fraudulent overrated reputation amongst people with zero skating knowledge. It was frustrating how she overshadowed skaters in popularity after that. But I just dont consider that her peak at all. When she was younger and first started breaking records she was impeccable.

Trusova’s best version of that free program was at the test event though, and those were five good quads. Most of you have more technical knowledge than I do, so I’ll default to you guys as to how clean or not those were.

And as a casual fan, I haven’t tuned in to a non-Russian competition since the Olympics. Trusova’s gall was far more memorable in the casual circles I frequent.
