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.

    Her birth date is 2 December 2002, so she is not age eligible for 2018 Olympics, is she?

    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/show...-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/show...=1#post4238228

    Even though the scores are really close, I'm glad to see she has the highest PCS
    Adelina Sotnikova is the 2014 Olympic champion!

    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.
