Alena Kostornaia?

Yes, she's only still 14, iirc to turn senior she had to be 15 by 1st July, she misses the requisite by less than two months :/

Imo she's one of those rare skaters for whom age limits don't apply, she's already so refined, I can't wait to see how much better she can get! Hopefully skating gods will spare her major injuries and growth issues :tumblr_inline_n18qr5AMus1qid2nw:

(one reason why I'm happy Rika is already going senior, despite not winning any medal in JGPF or JWC, is that she has a whole season to get a bit of space all for herself and built her reputation before the debut of Eteri's stronger jr girls. Knock on wood that she'll overcome her nerves issues and shine)

Ah too bad. But at least we get to see Alena in the Junior Circuit. 

Im praying that Rika get a hold of her nerves. The antis are really out to get her. I want to her to prove them wrong :tumblr_inline_mzx90enaUF1r8msi5:

The deadline for the entries is 20 July (Friday) so I think we'll know the assignments the week after that.

For JPG Austria the entries will be out a week later probably, in the beginning of August.

 

Depending on some things I'd like to go to JGP Slovakia, so I can't wait for the assignments :68468287:

I can't wait to see the assignments too.

 

It's really going to be something, this Junior season. 

Tbh, more than anything, I want to see where Kosto is. I have this half-fear that Anna S will get more room due to the quad but guess we have to wait. I don't know if Daniil would have posted any 4T attempts by Kosto if she had succeeded so for the moment, I'm thinking she's only bringing the 3A. I mean one never knows but better safe than destroyed hopes.

Alena said something about wanting to compete with the seniors already. She did once at Russian Nationals, which is hardly the easiest competition, and got third place there. I think she would be well ready and a major threat next season. Both she and Alexandra have this fearless attitude that I find admirable.

 

I also agree with you about Rika Kihira. Let her grow a bit and win some medals before having to compete with the wonderkids again. Same goes for Sofia and Daria. They now both got a senior GP spot (Daria even two), which will be harder next season.

 

I'm also looking forward to see what Nana Araki can do.
