hope so, its a tough field with Zhou, Sadovsky and Shimada
but Artem has an outside shot of a medal of one them misses and he's clean.
Looks like Gumennik is also there. Zhou looks like the favorite to win especially with Aliev having switched to a different jgp, but I think Artem has a realistic shot at a medal, since gumennik and shimada do not yet have 3As(though it's been on their planned content, I believe). Artem made a good impression skating clean in a deep field last week where there were a number of other impressive performances, so I'm sure he'll score well with another set of decent skates. :hap85:
He has been assigned to the 7th event.
I read that from the event thread. While I'm delighted for the addition, but also hope that he gets a good result at the following Jr. Nationals, so he can get better (or easier) assignments on JGP. The German event looks very touch to get a medal.
Its not about a medal its about him showing good results, next season will be a different scenario.
Artem is very unique amongst current russian men juniors, with his beautiful lines, skating skills and yeah very charismatic...
Aw, he's so little, hehe. Seriously, it's crazy how good he is considering he made the age cut for juniors by 3 days! Wish we had videos, but it's be hard to get for this competition I suppose.
