I posted this in the Euros thread but figured I would post here too since we are discussing-

German Novice and Junior Nationals is currently underway. This is the last competition that counts towards Junior Worlds Qualifikation. The top 5 skaters in the pre-Nationals in ranking that competed at Senior Nationals were invited to compete in Juniors here.
So far no surprises. Novice U13 Ladies and Mens Champions / Medallists are pretty much what had to be expected looking at the results this season.
Junior Ladies free skate is currently under way.
wow, lutricia bock 3f3t, but i just calm down. germany had some promising girls the last years, but they all vanished or sticked in thei development.
what a combination should that be?

Unless I calculated wrong the Junior Worlds Qualifying Standing for ladies are
Nathalie Weinzierl - 253,62 .... is in the middle of her exams for leaving school and I really wonder if she would want to do Junior Worlds
Annabelle Prölß - 253,06 .... is going to be at Junior Worlds in Pairs. Would the German Fed let her do both ?
Minami Hanashiro - 251,75 .... is the highest ranked age eligible skater and should get the spot for the EOYF, unless she gets Junior Worlds
Maria-K. Herceg - 241,97 .... is age eligible for EOYF
Natalia Fartushina - 240,78
Lutricia Bock - 240,11
Nicole Schott - 233,16
I guess except for Ladies the Team for Junior Worlds is pretty easy to guess. Standings should be updated soon
Mens - Martin Rappe, Sub - Panagiotis Polizoakis
Pairs - Prölß / Blommaert, Sub - Bauer / Seegert
Dance - Koch / Nüchtern, Schiffner / Salatzki, Sub - Häuser / Lerche
Ladies - http://www.eislauf-union.de/download...er_Damen_0.pdf
So, the team for junior worlds was announced
Trainer: Monika SCHEIBE
Trainer: Peter SCZYPA
Annabelle PRÖLß / Ruben BLOMMAERT
Trainer: Karel FAJFR
Shari KOCH / Christian NÜCHTERN
Ria SCHIFFNER / Julian SALATZKI
Trainer: Oleg RYJKIN
so, busy season for weinzierl. but good for her to show herself to the judges in regard to her pcs.
I hoped that Nathalie could have gone to senior worlds instead of juniors. Maybe next year!
there were quite a few interviews after euros, where she mentioned how happy she is to compete at worlds. i think junior worlds is just one step towards worlds. she would have quite a long break after euros, so i think this competition is good for her and maybe good for german fed toom if she is able to get in top10, this would get a second spot back for next year and more startes for jgp.
I really love Weinzierl's powerful jumps. Basics are not bad either. She just needs to get the finishing touches. More interesting programs, some more expression and she'll be there.
hecken always experienced with lutz and flip but almost never landed one of them clean in any of her programs.
weinzierl already has 2 great lutz in fs and lutz and flip in sp. but weinzierl definetly have to get solid and stong in her 2A, so many mistakes there this season, same with 3toe.
