sorry for OT :oops:

in the last podcast Max & Angelo were arguing that it might have been easier for Med to WD if Polina, her training mate, were the one to take her place...but now it would be a jpn skater, so it might add more external pressure for her not to wd from the final (on top of her own determination to compete, of course, which I think would still be the major reason for her to go)

 

I'm confused, why would it make a difference who takes her place? Zagitova's most likely to win in Med's absence anyway.

 

Edit: Thanks Yata, I'll move my question!

because her place would go to another girl of Eteri's group, so her wd would mean one of her training mates gets a chance, instead of one competitor (of course even polina is a competitor, but it's still russian and more important one trained by her coaches). So Russia (and Eteri in particular) have more chances for medals even without her:smile:

Thank you! 

And because the Russians will want as many medals as they can get. With another Russian being there to jump in, it lessens the pressure but as it is, and especially with Satoko being the first alternate - and Satoko with her JSF push is a bigger threat than say Wakaba - it's just going to add to the list of why she should compete.

That's pretty harsh - risking a top skater like that. Damn. I never thought I'd feel sorry for Med. "Go skating on your fractured foot because Russian Fed /our school wants medals, never mind that you might bomb because of your injury, get no medals, damage your reputation and risk your Olympic chances." Argh. I hope I'm wrong and Eteri and Russian fed will be reasonable and not pressure her unnecessarily.

Well another issue is that Zhenya herself wants to skate; she's a little bit like Yuzuru there. She's pretty much chafing at the bit to go and as she's an adult now, she does have a say in these choices. Another problem is Zagitova, not to go over all of this, you have that conversation in the Team Russia thread but I can see why she would want to win at GPF considering all of that. So it's a more than one factor in play here, we'll see how it all turns out.

I hope I'm not making look Eteri like a evil ice queen, because I think that despite her cool attitude she really cares for her students, but I think she shares and understands her student's absolute will to compete and win, too, and Zhenya's will is very strong.

Also, imo even psychologically maybe it would be easier for Zhenya to say: ok, this still sucks but I will crush everyone at Nats and Polina, who had her loads of injuries herself and whose hard work and will to compete I see everyday, might go there in my place. (thin silver lining, like for Yuzuru: withdrawing from the GP was heartbreaking, but the thought of Olys made that wd a little bit less bitter, or at least made acceptance easier, once the decision was made)

But this part is just my own speculation. In the end it will all come down to how Zhenya's foot will be, her confidence and how strongly she'll want be there (or feel that she has to).

For sure Satoko will be more than ready, and with the final in Nagoya I'd expect a strong push for her, were she to take Zhenya's place.
