Alexia Paganini qualified for Switzerland. She is a US based skater. Her native language is English and she speaks some German. I'm eagerly awaiting for @dcro to come back here and post about his diss

I think his name might be Mr. Sarcasm.

This happens all the time. Don't blame Williams for only performing when it counts. The American women do this all the time in Artistic Gymnastics and I haven't seen anyone complaining about it.

Huge blow to russian figure skating.

Apparently Yulia Lipnitskaya ended her career. Adelina Sotnikova is injured and will miss the whole season (including the olympics). I am sure that russia will find other medal contenders, but i am absolutely shocked by the news about Lipnitskaya, she has been one of my favorite athletes ever since the 2014 olympics, now i wont have anyone to cheer for at the olympics, without Lipnitskaya and Asada.

Here is a video of the legendary performance by Lipnitskaya from Sochi:

Mexico can't take it's best skater in women's (the first one to qualify for a Jr World Champs free skate) because she's under the selection age.

 

Meanwhile, Carrillo in men's improved a little bit his FS last weekend at Jr. World Grand Prix... I don't think he will be in contention for a place, but I'll be happy with a new PB in either program and of course in total.

Lipnitskaya apparently has serious problems with anorexia...

so, the situation is a lot more scaring than just having stopped her skating career...

I hope she can recover and get well again, sooner or later (possibly as soon as possible)...
