Original post by The Finn

Anna is a very promising skater and she is the winner of the Russian Nationals elder age among other things. Because of that victory she will most likely make her JGP debut next season. She was 2nd both at the Russian Cup final and at the Russian Nationals younger Age. She was 7th at the Russian Junior Championships. Her coach is Sergey Davydov.

Thanks and congrats for establishing the thread Finn! :clap:
"Very promising" is perfect phrase: great body type, mental toughness (fighter!), speed, flexibility, jumps, I really can't see her weak points atm. The fact Anna is winning or medaling everything lately helps as well. :agree:

Good luck Anna! :cheer2:

Thanks for the thread, The Finn! Anna is something special, she has something that difficult to make out at first sight, but at more attentive look you begins to feel something strange, some extraordinary aura. At least I have such feelings. In general Anna's progress in this season impresses very much - not an unsuccessful performance for all the season! From 11 competitions she has 4 victories, 3 silver medals, 1 bronze medal, scores grew from 150 to 190, the edge on Lutz changed from wrong to clean. I wish Anna great success for the next season, I hope it will be the same impressive!

I am confident that she will make her JGP debut this season but it is worth mentioning that she isn't named to the main Russian junior national teams. She is named to the youth national team though.

Among new Russian girls who will make JGP debut this season, I like her & Nugmanova most.
Judging with her videos, I am sure she will medal or very possibly win her first one.
However, I wonder what she will do for her combination jump for SP.
This season she cannot do 3L+3T, which was her last season's combo
since the solo jump of SP has to be 3L for junior skaters.
She better do the combo from 3Lz or 3 F in order to win.

Sadly Anna withdraw. Hopefully she is okey, maybe she was ill or something.

I kind of doubt she will make her JGP debut this season after withdrawing today.

Thought the links that have been posted in the St. Gervais Ladies SP thread should be copied over to Anna's Fan Fest.

Awful news about the bus crash which brought about the withdrawal of Anzelika Klujeva and Anna Tarusina. Hope both of them are ok and get well soon. News Article. Google translate reads:-

Figure skater Anna Tarusina not be able to perform the first stage of the Junior Grand Prix in France for reasons of force majeure.

On the way to the rink shuttle bus with the athletes and coaches involved in an accident. Currently Tarusina Anna and her coach, Sergei Davydov, as well as other coaches and athletes are in the hospital. Their lives are not in danger. All the victims medical assistance.

Together with Russian sportsmen in the bus was a Latvian athlete Angelica Klyuyev, who also did not come out at the start. Her life is not in danger, too.

ISU statement on the accident:

Doesn't tell us anything we don't already know. But thought I should let you know that the ISU had made it.


there's a post @ CSKA that Anna has an operation on her knee & her mom is about to fly to France

Hopefully everything is OK & its successful :sad21:

Sending my best wishes to Anna on her operation, and also to Anzelika and everybody else involved in the accident.

Due to the mini-bus accident on the way to the event site, she had to undergo an operation on her knee? The Organization Work of this event just left me speechless... Hopefully she can fully recover soon for another junior stage, and such bad luck can only happen to her once in a lifetime.

A pity to Tarusina
After watching her programs from last season, I thought Anna was going to be a major medal contender. :sad21: Such a misfortune to happen especially on her international debut.

Wishing her a safe and fast recovery. :cheer2:
