    Polina Edmunds

    I really think Polina Edmunds is a good skater and has great potential. I'm looking forward to seeing her compete in the seniors. What does everyone else think about her?

    I think she is a very talented skater! Right now she skates a little bit like she is still getting used to her long, tall body, but I think she will grow into it soon.

    Great potential, but unless she improves her jumps I am sure they will get dinged the minute she moves to seniors the way Sotnikova's jumps were.

    Polina is my second favorite US lady next to Alissa. She fills the "grace" void when Alissa isn't competeing.

    I like her, but I agree that she does need to work on tightening up the rotation on her jumps. Particularly the back end of the 3+3 combo and the triple-half loop-triple sequence.

    I really like her and she is the first skater just entering the seniors that I've been excited about for a long time.

    Polina's skating has been discussed previously in the U.S. Ladies thread - for example, see the posts after she won her first JGP gold in Mexico City: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...=1#post3989503

    Here's her Team USA bio: http://web.icenetwork.com/skaters/pr...polina_edmunds
