I really prefer this little one as well. She was great!
They are both great, but I think Ngumanova is my favorite too. She shows so much joy on her face and she is very musical.
You're right. We have two Anastasia Gubanova in juniors. One in lady's another one in pairs.
Here the first one:
Here is the second:
They are from Perm. Zakroev and Vygalova teammates.
I think they are both very musical, still I simply adore Nugumanova's s.p. this year:
Now I'm in love with two little girls from Russia and really looking forward to see them develop.
I love all three- the two Gubanovas and Ngumanova (I had seen that performance on yt earlier).
The pairs Gubanova- the pair reminds me of Katia and Sergei in 1995 (when Katia was 14 and Sergei was 19)because of their height difference.
I think someone posted this young lady on a different thread some time ago, and the video below looks to be a more recent competition - but I think this kid is great! If I recall correctly, someone said she was 11. Great musicality and she just makes me smile when I watch her. Her jumps look improved just since a few months ago as well. Russia has so many great kids coming up through the ranks.
Lovely! I am really enjoying vids of these awesomely talented kids.
Gubanova placed 7th at 2014 Russian Junior Nationals after skating two clean programs.
SP: 3flip/3toe, 2axel and 3loop (7th TES)
FS: 3flip/3toe, 3lutz, 2axel, 3flip/2toe, 3loop, 3salchow, 3toe/2toe/2toe (5th TES)
For somebody 10 going on 11 years old, this is just.
As is the fact that she was only 7th and 5th in TES, respectively (and 7th overall) with that content.
I think that one is a more recent thread. I will watch this yt later (can't watch it at work)
Her birth date is 2 December 2002, so she is not age eligible for 2018 Olympics, is she?
Junior Naionals 2014 SP
She will be 15 in Dec. 2017. So I believe you are correct.
For skaters like her, I wish the ISU would remove the age limit.
What a lovely skate!
I wouldn't even call her a Wonderbaby, she seems better than that. She looks like a great skater overall. I love the way she holds her edge out of her jumps, has sensitivity to the music in her arms, and outside of the landing of a few jumps, her posture is fantastic. Since she will have to compete later, due to her birthday, I really hope she excels post puberty.
She is very unlucky to just miss the cut.
She would need to be 15 by July 2017 and she will still be 14 then.
That's what is so amazing by her. She not only has absolutely incredible jump content for a skater that young (3flip/3toe at age 11?!!) but she also has fantastic basics and a relation to the music on top of that. And that's something that you see much more rarely that jumping prowess in young skaters.
She is only 0.08 ahead of Tsurkaya, 0.53 ahead of some other girl. Even novice competitions are too close in Russia
Her SP from Crystal Skate 2014. All top3 girls did 3+2 in SP.
Thanks for the video link - I've re-posted it in the 2014 Crystal Skate competition thread in Kiss and Cry (currently open to all): http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/sho...-25-27-2014-(Adv-Novice-singles-amp-Ice-Dance)
This international (Baltic States) competition follows ISU rules and 3-3 is not allowed in the Advanced Novice SP.
ETA that Gubanova placed 3rd overall (5th in FS) in a national competition in late March -- see: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/sho...Competitions&p=4238228&viewfull=1#post4238228
Even though the scores are really close, I'm glad to see she has the highest PCS
Her free skate with two 3-3.
This was a novice competition. I don't think they are allowed to do 3-3 in the SP. I remember the time when 3-3 in the SP wasn't allowed even in Juniors. I think it was Yuna Kim who was complaining that she must make her program easier because it is in the rules, although she could do 3-3.
Bumping this thread up in honor of Ziggy...
Re-posting from this new Russian competitions thread in Kiss and Cry:
Anastasia Gubanova's 1st place Junior SP (61.48) at the St. Petersburg Cup yesterday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mcgd2mH3H2Y
Gubanova will turn 12 on December 2, according to a post above. This means she won't be old enough for the JGP until the fall of 2016.
Thank you Sylvia.
Amazing! So much talent, and also she's age appropriate! She seems to have good basics, too.
Too bad she isn't old enough for 2018. I wish they'd reinstate the loophole that allowed anyone who medalled at Junior Worlds to compete at the senior level.
Russia has so many young teens, it's crazy!
But it's scary that this girl triumphs them all. Amazing talent! I hope puberty will treat her well.
Here's hoping. She seems to have good skating and jumping skills so that will help her.
Just reactivating this old thread as the late great Ziggy was one of the first to realise the potential of Anastasia Gubanova. For anybody who has not seen them yet, here are the videos from Gubanova's superb performance at the 1st stage of this seasons Russia Cup at which she scored 200.78.
Anastasia Gubanova (Russia Cup): Short Program, Free Skate (2nd Copy)
THAT explains it all!
Luuuuuuuuurve this girl.
I haven't seen such a prodigious talent since Mao Asada, and Anastasia doesn't have the UR issues that Mao had as a young teen.
She's the first skater who I've actually enjoyed skating to "Snowstorm." The solo jump entrances in the SP are insane, and she repeats them in the FS.
The FS is also lovely, and I don't think I've seen a lady try 3Lz+3Lo AND 3Lz+3T in one program (maybe Higuchi). I also love she does a flying camel instead of a flying sit, which is performed in the short.
Can't wait to see her development.
Thanks for resurrecting this thread.
IIRC Ziggy discovered her first. I had never heard of her before that. I started watching her after that.
