For the Finns - link. (http://areena.yle.fi/video/1335523) Sucks that it's blocked outside Finland. :( I thought it was lovely.

But I seem to have a good chance to advertise some of my own videos ;) :P

Cecilia Törn SP from 09-10 (she's keeping it) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ES-BncMj61Q)
Beata Papp SP from 09-10 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0DjQ_qWshZ8)
Beata Papp FS from 09-10 (keeping it, I think) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTiGpWFmkTg)
Alisa Mikonsaari SP from 09-10 (she's keeping it) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36isxMzIQ-w)
Alisa Mikonsaari FS from 09-10 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ood-mETcjN8)

I don't have videos of the boys from last season on YouTube unfortunately. I have Bela's FS on a memory stick but it's not a very good performance. :shuffle: And I never knew Zubik would have all those triples so I didn't fim him (at Nats, that is). :lol:

Finnice, Alisa speaks Finnish and Russian equally well (I went to the same school with her brother).

And back to the actual topic :D I think it's very good for all of them that they're so even. For the girls especially the tough competition should push them in practice as they know they could make it to the team. It's also very good for the future of Finnish figure skating... Also, they need to train hard as there's the young and talented Timila Shrestha coming up!!!

I can't really pick my favourite out of them. I just wish they'd all do well this season. I find Beata's performance skills and musicality very nice and she definitely is very talented as she only switched to Juniors from Novice last season (let's not forget the Canadian record in Novice!). Alisa has a lot to improve in her skating skills and arm movements but it seems like she could get it in a few years time. But she has such a nice Biellmann and her spirals were amazing. Such a shame they're not a real element anymore :( Cecilia for some reason reminds me of Laura, in a good way. She has such smoothness in her edges and great fluidity.

Speaking of Laura, her loop combo looked very good on the clip (it's from the time AFTER she returned to the ice I guess) so I'm sure she'll do well this season after all.

I believe that clip was from the national team camp back in August so it was from the time before she got injured. IMO.

Oh, well I may have just gotten too excited :D Sorry!

Someone posted both Laura's interview and the upcoming skaters' interviews on youtube.

Laura: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtrJw6m1d-A

Törn, the Papps, Mikonsaari, Versluis, Zubik: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oB-CHLEV0QY

And that person was also kind enough to subtitle them! Enjoy :D

Finns, what can you tell us about Juulia TURKKILA's skating? She finished 10th in Dresden with a decent score (116.86), which is pretty close to what Papp scored last year at Junior Worlds. She also had PCS higher than a few girls who finished ahead of her. From the protocols, she only has 3T and 3S, but I'd like to know more about her skating overall :)

Thanks.

She is a little bit of mystery to me. I know most of the young and promising Finnish skaters but I don't even remember how she looks like!

I also noticed that she did quite well at Dresden, which is great! Based on that score she has made some significant improvements from last season. I know she did a 3t-3t at a competition in Finland a few weeks ago.
Maija here's her STLL bio (https://stll-fi.directo.fi/kilpaurheilu/kilpaurheilutoiminta/maajoukkueet/juulia_turkkila/) so maybe you'll remember the face. She's from HL.

I think she's a talented girl with especially good expression. She has all right spins, especially the I-spin (or is it Y-spin?) but I always thought she was a bit slow. IMO I'd say her strengths based on last season are having the easier triples (especially the 3t is great, at least usually) and being rather expressive. :) But based on 116 points overall I'm expecting that she has really made some improvements over the summer.

And since I'm into the uploading this weekend anyway :P I checked my Nationals 2009 memory stick and yep, her programs were there. ;) So here's the FS (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWBI-A-MmmU) from last December.

Pixieworld.net will be covering several finnish skating events thanks to Tomas Whitehouse (the photographer). I suspect this is just karma payback for listening to HIM so much not that long ago. :P This is a sort of a double post but since not everyone has access to the K&C I thought I'd live a note here as well.

I'm also running a contest for the fan favorite Finlandia Trophy photo, it would be nice for Tomas to have a good participation rate, so take a look at it please.

Sky blue for the SP ( over the Rainbow)
Plum/ black tiedye ( not a good description of an elegant dress) with beige accents ( Evita)
