Ari Pekka still skating? wasn't he going to retire:confused:?

and btw, where are Hietaniemi and Sofia Otala? the latter was quite promising about 2-3 seasons ago.
oh, and does this list include all juniors? I don't see Matleena Lakso :).

(btw, I'm sorry for probable misspelling the surnames - I never know where to double the vovel...)

Henriikka Hietaniemi (born 1987) skates still but she is not in Team Finland.

Sofia Otala has retired.

I also wonder where is Matleena Laakso! (She is one of the Finnish skaters listed as a substitute in JGP).

There are also two teams for younger skaters:
- Juniorimaajoukkue (http://stll-fi.directo.fi/kilpaurheilu/kilpaurheilutoiminta/nuorten-valmennusryhmat/nuorten-maajoukkue/) (mainly Novices)
- Talent-valmennusryhmä (http://stll-fi.directo.fi/kilpaurheilu/kilpaurheilutoiminta/nuorten-valmennusryhmat/talent-valmennusryhma/) (promising skaters born 1997-2000)

The teams are pretty expected, although it's new that they're divided into Sochi/Women/Men instead of just A and B.

I also thought Matleena Laakso would be on the list but she's always been really inconsintent with her jumps so maybe she wasn't showing enough determination and consistency in the test skates.

Other than that, quite expected. :)

Great to see they're taking the promising juniors to a high level of National team coaching!

Now I read from Ilta-Sanomat that Laura Lepistö has injured her hip, falling hard on ice while practicing her triples. I hope this is not too serious... :(

She was injured three weeks ago. She is better now but she has not yet been able to skate.

Just got the newest Taitoluistelu magazine and it says Lepistö's new short program is a "fresh version of the tango Besame Mucho". Interesting, another tango. And also, Beata Papp is using Besame Mucho for her SP too.

I always found it ironic that "Besame" can be broken up into "Be same". :shuffle:

Besame mucho is not a tango in a similar way as the ones she uses at her FS so I'd say it should be ok. And there are a lot of different kinds of versions so it might be far away from tango anyway :D

Oh and I hope it'd be something like this version!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6LiXpFlNlg

That's too sad. The choice of music is a little weird too. Hope she comes back even stronger. :(

so then it could be that Lepistö is skating to tangos in both programs? That's weird.

Bésame Mucho is not a tango. It's a Mexican pop song.

Besame Mucho is really a rhumba, unless this is some "fusion-y" version.
