    regarding Cohen and Lysacek I can try and ask them but do not put to much hope (I myself have never understood why they are there in first place)

    Just tell them you were reading online and people were laughing at them for featuring two American skaters who don't even compete anymore ;) I don't know any other skating federation who features another countries skaters, it's just weird :lol:

    It must be an obskure skating country thing. Romanian fed also has Cohen on the front page, but we went one better and got Apolo Ono for short track, too :lol:

    Hanna, I thought the announcer said Juni Marie and Victoria had 28.xx so there might be a lot in that area with similar marks.

    Skoppa, I´ll start an online petition ;)

    5. Louise JENSEN / SWE / 29.13 (2a, 3s-turnout-2t, 3t fall) Clair de Lune turned into tinkly piano PotO... but she's quite lovely, definitely! All long limbs and a smile.

    6. Sine Mari LEITE / NOR / 29.09 (2lz-2t, 2a made it, 2lo) Good speed and sharp basic skating, me likes!

    16.

    20. Leonora Colmor JEPSEN / DEN / 17.13 (2a<<, 1lz, 1f)


    PML, there were so many mistakes in my standings it's almost not even funny. :shuffle: I sincerely apologize. ;) I corrected everything now.

    At least the jump notes were pretty much 100% accurate, which must be a first. :lol: :cheer:

    I love how the Icelandic girls consistently scored 22 points each. :lol:

    If I should recommend some of these performances on YouTube, I'd go with the top3. Especially the Swedish kid Schneider, she was awesome! :respec:

    even thought it is a folk song sung on new years it is about dancing on the ice and how it shimmers in the moonlight...Im sure that is why it was chosen. I personally would have preferred the national anthem

    This little Anastasia Schneider is fabolous. And she only is 11 years old. She was the swedish champion in Advanced Novice 13 years old in Sweden. She still has 4 years left in the Novice class!!

    The Finnish girl Lyydia I really liked, fantastic spinner. The second Icelandic girl, Julia, has great speed and flow over the ice compared to her teammates. Enjoyed her footwork and choreography (jumps and spins not so much).

    eta...the above looks stupid and out of context considering Hanna´s preceding post so ignore as I was just commenting on the first group and stopped.

    I do wonder why the Icelandic girl Agnes is skating in Junior? She was the Novice champion at the end of November and her marks were on par with the rest of the Novice podium so odd to move her to junior mid-season. She has the technical content of the Novice skaters.

    Bad timing. I was shopping and just came back. Nelma has already skated.

    Maybe they wanted to fill as many spots as possible to give everybody a chance? And therefore moved one of the girls = her up...... I don't know, that's just a guess though.

    She was very good! Apparently you should be able to catch a YouTube video later - no idea when though.

    Moved this to a more proper place in the thread.

    Final Results, Junior Ladies - Short Program, Protocols


    1. Josefin TALJEGÅRD / SWE / 50.11 (3s-2t, 3f, 2a) Wheeeeeeee absolutely adore her since Nordics 2007! That was AMAZING! Her PCS should be more than everybody else combined! :cheer: She's FIERCE! The step sequence is FABULOUS! Jump rotations may have been questionable but she has some true star quality. YOU SHOULD WATCH THIS!

    2. Jenni SAARINEN / FIN / 46.30 (3t-3t fall out of second jump, 3f fall :fragile:, 2a) This is the girl that Finland is sending to Junior Worlds. Not her best day (usually the 3f is not a problem for her) but the free should be her forté. She has teknik but is still very much a junior skater (she's 13) with not much choreography or interpretation.

    3. Nelma HEDE / FIN / 43.93 (2a very good, 3s-2t, 2f) Yay, clean! :cheer: She has started to grow into a very musical and expressive being, I love it! All jumps very good quality today.

    4. Rebecka EMANUELSSON / SWE / 42.14 (3f fall, 3s-2t, 2a) She's one of the more experienced junior ladies here and it shows. Mature with very good presentation and overall skill.

    5. Elin HALLBERG / SWE / 41.25 (3s fall, 2a, 2f) Ah the golden blades of glory... very nice and soft basics, good skating overall

    6. Pernille SÖRENSEN / DEN / 37.55 (3s turnout-2t, 2f, 2a) Can she break into the FIN-SWE top10? Yes she can!

    7. Liubov EFIMENKO / FIN / 36.09 (1lz, 3f fall, 2a) Energetic as ever, borderline rushed. She's very BAM BAM BAM TADAH TADAH TADAH. Tons of choreography but you could see that she was slightly ahead of her music most of the time (unless the sound and picture are not in synch). She needs to learn to not only do the planned choreography but actually do it to the music. Spins are WILD (in a good way) but jumps were not there today, unfortunately.

    8. Natasja REMSTEDT / SWE / 35.69 (2f, 3t fall, 2a barely) More Aranjuez. I remember her from last year! Lovely interpretation and expression.

    9. Lyydia MÄÄTTÄNEN / FIN / 35.40 (3t fall, 3f step out, 2a step out) She breaks my heart every single time. Please, someone tell me how to not get attached to the headcases. :fragile: She's got all the goods in the world for this sport (all the triples, amazing spins) but it never happens.

    10. Emilia TOIKKANEN / FIN / 35.36 (2f, 2s<<-2t, 2a) Her program is packed with transitions, I hope judges notice.

    11. Felicia ANDERSSON / SWE / 35.35 (3s turnout-2t, 2a turnout, 2f) Wheeeeeee Nightwish! Very nice speed and flow.

    12. Daria PODTELEJNIKOVA / DEN / 33.41 (2a, 3s fall, 2f) Ah Lyydia's music, I lurve the Artist soundtrack. :swoon: This girl was good! Some lovely spin positions, presentation, teknik... what not.

    13. Jemima RASMUSS / NOR / 32.11 (waxel, 2lz-2t, 2f) Wheee, Bach's Air with some reggae remix. :inavoid:

    14. Vala Rún B. MAGNÚSDÓTTIR / ISL / 30.56 (2a step out, 2lz-2t, 2f) The Icelandic girls cheering are breaking the microphones. :lol:

    15. Emma ANDERSEN / DEN / 30.14 (1t, 2a, 2f) She was rather perky and enjoyable and had nice speed into her jumps. Too bad that what I'm sure was supposed to be 3t-2t didn't work out.

    16. Heidi LILLESÆTER / NOR / 29.33 (3s-1t, 1a, 2f) Ugh, the most awful saxophone elevator muzak. But she has some rather soft basics.

    17. Emma Norby PETERSEN / DEN / 29.25 (2a, 2lz-2t, 2f<<) Skating to Aranjuez

    18. Júlía GRÉTARSDÓTTIR / ISL / 28.16 (2f fall out + hands down, 2a fall, 2lz-2t) The Feeling Begins... she has very nice speed! Not bad at all!

    19. Nadia Margrét JAMCHI / ISL / 27.04 (2a, 2lz step out, 2f) Very nice 2a! Someone needs to tell the Icelandic team to lose the "tights over boots" look though.

    20. Agnes Dís BRYNJARSDÓTTIR / ISL / 20.40 (2a<< fall, 2lz fall, 2f) Awww poor girl. I lurves In the Halls of the Mountain King.

    Final Results, Senior Ladies - Short Program

    1. Viktoria HELGESSON / SWE / 54.37 (3t-3t< fall, 3lo, 2a) Hmmmmmmm. If we combined Viktoria's skating and Joshi's programs we'd have a winner IMO. Jump teknik to that combo should be borrowed from an outsider though.

    2. Joshi HELGESSON / SWE / 53.83 (3lz, 3s-2t, 2a) I really really love this music and program. :swoon: It's fab. But her jumps never stop looking heavy. She also messed up the end of her middle spin.

    3. Anne Line GJERSEM / NOR / 48.x5 (3s-2t, 3lo, 2a) Very good jumps today! :cheer: I have a soft spot for the Gjersems, they're fun!

    4. Isabelle OLSSON / SWE / 47.90 (3lo, 3lz-3t<< fall, 2a) Wheeeeee lurve her perky stewardess voids!! :cheer2: :cheer: But wait, wait... was that really a 3lz-3t attempt? Wow! I completely prefer her over the Helgessons and am hoping she'll get to go to Euros next year! :cheer:

    5. Anita MADSEN / DEN / 47.77 (3lo hand down -2t, 3s, 2a) I also remember her from Nordics 2007 when she was a little novice girl! The most promising out of the Danish bunch already back then. She has come a long way! :)

    6. Camilla GJERSEM / NOR / 46.52 (3lo-2t, 3t, 2a) She made it! Compared to her sis she has a bit of a leg wrap but they have a very similar energetic style.

    7. Anine RABE / NOR / 44.93 (3t-2t, 3s turnout, 2a) Lovely soft style, good basics, fab spins.

    8. Seidi RANTANEN / FIN / 43.78 (3t-2t, 3s, 2a fall :duh:) She's rather lovely with her basics and speed but hasn't really improved a whole lot during the last 2-3 years or so.

    9. Nea VIIRI / FIN / 43.xx (3t-2t, 3s, 2a) Clean! :cheer: I love her music. I have a soft spot for her and it's always good to see her skate well despite kinda having admitted to myself that she will probably never much improve from the point she's currently at...

    10. Rosaliina KUPARINEN / FIN / 42.97 (2.5lz, 3t, 2a) Good, soft basics. She has been injured a lot over the years but has managed to come back from them. Lovely sit spin positions!

    11. Alina MILEVSKAYA / UKR / 42.58 (3lz, 2a, 3s-2t)

    12. Guðbjörg GUTTORMSDÓTTIR / ISL / 24.32 (2a, 2lo, 2f fall) Iceland has a lot of redheads!
