Just noticed from some Russian/Ukrainian forum that Jenni Saarinen won Junior ladies (her first junior event ever) in the Ice Star competition in Minsk with a total of 128 points! :cheer: That's fantastic! I hope there will be protocols at some point (but I'm not counting on it... :shuffle:).
I know you found the protocols later and posted the link in the Ice Star competition thread ;) ... here's is Jenni Saarinen's winning FS from that competition: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbsDni3u21g

Yes, and since this competition she has added a 3lz to her free and a 3t-3t to her short. :)

Good morning :)

I know some of you are involved with clubs and we never know who is reading here so I thought I'd drop by and leave my little announcement:
Photographer bookings (http://www.sport-folio.net/news/sportfolio-announces-photographer-bookings)

In short we are trying to make coverage of smaller competitions profitable for the site and the photographer, which is a very difficult task to both, I'm working with my long time collaborator Tomas Whitehouse to cover the Finnish Qualifiers and later on Nationals, so if you could spread the word on the initiative I'd really appreciate it. Thank you ! :)

Unfortunately, that's the way it is here.

We'll have to start a separate "Road to Finnish Nationals" (or something) thread in the K'n'C with reports from the qualifiers. Should be interesting, especially with the super novices from last year having all moved up to juniors now.

We all are. It it still not sure if she makes the GPF. She would make Finnish skating history by that. AP Nurmenkari was in the junior GPF about ten years ago.

Kiira was in Junior GP Final as a host country skater in the year the final was in Helsinki.

Jenni Vähämaa was in Junior GP Final in 2007. She was 5th in the final.

I really hope she makes the final; I mistakenly thought she was already guaranteed.
