    Gold: Polina SHELEPEN RUS
    Silver: Ira VANNUT BEL
    Bronze: Polina KOROBEYNIKOVA RUS

    The two Japanese and the two Americans as well as Hae Jin Kim are very inconsistent. It's going to be interesting, because they could all be very good, or have a disaster.

    I feel like Yuki Nishino has been on the JGP forever. Looking back at her records, she already won bronze at the JGPF three years ago!

    Gold: Polina Shelepen
    Silver: Hae-Jin Kim
    Bronze: Yukiko Fujisawa or Ira Vannut

    Polina is a given. Hae-Jin showed great improvement. I'm still rooting for small Yukiko. ITA Nishino's been on jgp forever and was only consistent for one season... Ira looked quite polished at the end of the season last year, let's hope it carried over.

    I'm rather disappointed at the Americans in this event...

    Why
    not
    Leah Keiser
    or
    Gracie Gold

    USFSA, you are stupid...

    I completely agree. They deserve to be here.

    Gold Shelepen
    Silver Fujisawa

    The fourth JGP have very strong records for Japanese ladies since 2004. Nishino's under-rotation seems to show little improvement. Fujisawa would be the better bet.

    2004 Takeda gold
    2005 Kitamura gold
    2006 Takeda gold
    2007 Nishino gold
    2008 Fujisawa gold
    2009 Nishino silver (Shelepen gold)
    2010 Shoji gold

    ^ Wow, that's a pretty remarkable track record!

    I think it will be broken by Shelepen this year, but we'll see.

    1. Shelepen, 2. Kim, 3. Korobeynikova

    It was tough choosing between Korobeynikova and Vannut but I figured that Korobeynikova would win on components.

    Shelepen, Vannut, Korobeinikova.

    But Kim, Fujisawa, Nishino, Daniels, Cain could spoil. Not as deep of a field as the first 3 events, but a lot of these girls are inconsistent, so it could turn out to be an exciting event or a total flop.

    Exactly why does Ashley Cain get another assignment after her performance in Latvia? Don't you have to have a good result in the first GP event to get a second assignment in the Junior GP? There were other US girls who deserved that spot in Brasov.

    Ya, not in this field. That being said, I can see skaters like Lipitniskaia, Miyahara, Cesario, Shoji, Hicks, Lam, and Li beating her, but luckily none of those skaters will be at this event.

    I can see Shelepen beating Shelepen...

    The Japanese ladies here are crazily inconsistent, but if they stand up on their jumps (and rotate, in Nishino's case) they will do well.

    Judging from her first competition, Kim can easily medal as long as she delivers.
    Vannut is very solid and can medal as well.

    If all skate well, this is a very deep field. But having all these ladies skate well at the same time is pretty unlikely...

    Gold: Polina Shelepen
    Silver: Hae-Jin Kim
    Bronze: Polina Korobeynikova

    I would hope Kim wouldn't melt down in her FS again, but who knows. Shelepen should win convincingly (theoretically), but who knows. Korobeynikova beats Vannut, the Americans and the Japanese for the bronze, IMO.

    I wonder if Vannut is going to get a senior GP assignment instead? She's at (or near) the top of the list at this point.

    Too bad USFS didn't send Vanessa to this event, with Vannut out, this field is pretty weak, and she could very likely nab a slot in the final with even just decent performances. Shelepen would really be her only main competitor, and she did beat her last season. Instead USFS is wasting this event with a weak field on Cain and Daniels who don't look to have any shot at the final at this point. And my guess is they will send Samantha to Milan anyways even though that field is insane, and Courtney will be the only one who makes the final. Stupid USFS...

    There's no way they could predict Vannut popping off the entry list a day before the event. With her in this field, it was looking very strong IMO. Both Russians and both Japanese can be very good. Also Hae Jin Kim is strong and Popova landed many triples at Liberty. That's at least 6 strong skaters right there, so its not as if Vanessa or anyone else would be guaranteed a medal here even without Vannut.
