Well done Nastia. 2nd placement here should guarantee her a 2nd JGP event for sure.
Agreed that it is not certain that Nastya will get a second spot, but really hoping!
Assuming that they do not take anyone's first JGP spot away from them, there is only room for 5 different girls to get a 2nd spot, and there is potential for up to 5, but more likely to be 3-4 different first place finishers.
This means that if there is more than one second place finisher, they'll have to choose which one to give a second spot to. Hoping that Nastya is able to bring the 3A as that would help to give her an advantage.
Nastia's 2nd JGP event should be pretty much given. Russian Fed isn't going to give some other girl her 1st JGP event at the expense of Nastia's 2nd event. If there will be a lot of 1st and 2nd placements at the next two events then ladies like Samodurova or Vasilieva will lose her 1st event.
