    I would add:

    Leah Keiser-
    12th at US senior nationals (with a few falls), 2010 US novice champ, has both a triple lutz-triple toe and double axel-triple toe. Very professionally packaged by Frank Carroll and Lori Nichol. She's 14 (will turn 15 in September):

    SP from Glacier Falls Competition this past summer

    LP from the same competition:

    ETA: I couldn't find anything on youtube but for those of you with access to IceNetwork, I would recommend taking a look at Lorraine McNamara and Quinn Carpenter, the super-talented US junior bronze medallists who will finally be old enough for the JGP next season. She just turned 13 and he 16. They would have gone to junior worlds this year had she been old enough.

    I remember a Russian young lady named Rosa (can't remember her last name) that was on YT last year, I think. She looked really good but she had an injury and did not compete rest of the year.

    I think you're referring to Rosa SHEVELEVA.

    Anna has 3T-3T. :)

    Rosa Sheveleva was injured during the summer, she started competeing in the late fall but not successfully :(
    We'll see how's her recovery going, probably she will be able to return all her jumps and will be selected for JGP, who knows.

    How about Polina Edmunds? Any news about her, will she get any JGP assignments?
  7. Sylvia

    No. She only turned 12 this past August.

    It's too early to say as there are quite a number of U.S. JGP-eligible ladies who finished ahead of her at Nationals in Senior and Junior -- refer to this post in the "2012-13 US assignments speculation" thread, for example: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showpost.php?p=3463790&postcount=24

    ETA: I'm really looking forward to seeing Elena Radionova's debut on the JGP next season!

    Chances are pretty good that she gets selected for JGP. I assume Gold will do SGP and skaters like Baga, Siraj, Lam will do Senior B or GP or regionals/sectionals as seniors as they have all already done 2 seasons on JGP, meaning the ladies in line for JGPs ahead of her would be just Cain, Miller, Long, and Bell. Then from seniors probably just Wang, Keiser, and Jiang so that's 8 spots out of 14, chances are Polina will get at least 1 assignment and then probably 2 if she does well at her first. Usually the 6th place finisher in juniors gets a JGP.

    I like Polina Edmunds, she has the basics and has room to get all harder jump combos also Keiser, she will do well in JGP

    these names could go to JGPF for the ladies

    Elena Radionova
    Satoko Miyahara
    Hannah Miller
    Leah Keiser
    Anna Shershak

    Once again, there will be quite a few U.S. ladies vying for the 14 spots. I assume initial preference might go to those ladies with a solid 3F, since the flip is the required solo jump in the junior SP next season. Based on that, I think frontrunners for JGP spots would be Angela Wang (Senior 8th), Leah Keiser (Senior 12th), Ashley Cain (Junior 2nd), Hannah Miller (Junior 3rd), Barbie Long (Junior 4th), and Polina Edmunds (Junior 6th). Kiri Baga (Senior 10th) and Mariah Bell (Junior 5th) may also be considered since they have nice 3F's. Not sure about the plans of Vanessa Lam and Yasmin Siraj yet, but they're sure to be in the mix too.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing Radionova on the JGP next season!

    As I posted on "2012-13 US assignments speculation" the US will have 15 spots because the US is hosting a JGP event (the host country can send three skaters to an event for singles and ice dancing).

    It means promising JGP eligible skaters may have more opportunities. At the same time, USFSA does not necessarily use up all the slots. Traditionally, skater who are sent to the first JGP event has to place high enough to be sent the second time. High enough placement usually means the first to the fourth place. The fifth placed skater(s) are rarely sent the second event, though it occasionally happens.

    thanks :)
    I always enjoy young dance teams
    and the younger the longer and better they can improve in the junior circuit
