With 36 points from their two events, Daria and Denis are officially qualified to nationals. Congratulations. I hope that they will stay healthy and work hard in the leadup. Getting to Euros and worlds will not be easy. Same with the national team. It is good that they skated and got their events out of the way before stages 4 and 5 with the insane depth. At nationals they will face Boikova/Kozlovski, Mishina/Galliamov, Tarasova/Morozov, Panfilova/Rylov, Pepeleva/Pleshkov, Kadyrova/Balchenko, Akhanteva/Kolesov, and Artemeva/Nazarychev. I think they should work on putting the 3F in the short, and I wonder if they have worked on a 3Lz or something of that sort before. They are good jumpers.
