2017 JGP Poland Pairs Preview

Five teams are looking to punch their tickets to the Junior Grand Prix Final in the last pairs event of the season.  Paniflova and Rylov lead the standings with 26 points, with Bokikova and Kozlovskii right behind them with 24 points.

Pavliuchenko and Khodykin earned the gold medal at JGP Belarus.  They earned Level 4 on everything but the twist and death spiral in their short program, but they earned positive GOEs on all of their elements.  Their free skate includes a triple toe + triple toe combination and a throw triple flip.  They only earned a slight negative GOE on their opening triple + triple.  They need a 1st-4th place finish to secure their place in the Final.  There are several scenarios where even a 5th place finish would earn them a trip.  They have the 5th best short program, best free skate, and best total scores.

Kostiukovich and Ialin won the gold medal in their JGP debut in Croatia.  Their short program earned Level 4 for everything except the death spiral, and they only earned a slight negative GOE on the side by side double lutzes.  Their free skate includes a quadruple twist which they completed with positive GOEs.  They also have an extremely difficult side by side combo planned with a triple salchow + single loop + triple salchow combination, although it was deemed under-rotated in places and they had a fall on the element.  They earned a Level 4 on everything but the twist, which earned Level 3.  They can finish as low as 4th place and still earn a trip to the Final.  While their content gives them a huge advantage, their program components suffered slightly and they only finished 3rd in that area in Croatia.  Like their teammates, a 5th place finish could also secure them a spot in the Final under the right circumstances.  They have the 3rd best short program, 2nd best free skate, and 2nd best total scores.

Poluianova and Sopot earned a silver medal in Belarus.  Their short program earned Level 4 on everything but the triple twist.  Their free skate was mostly clean with only slightly negative GOEs on the side by side jumps.  They could afford to upgrade their side by side jumps by replacing their double axels with a triple.  They need a medal of any color to qualify for the Final.  They have the 4th best short program, 3rd best free skate, and 5th best total scores.

Gao and Xie won the silver medal, their first career JGP medal, last week in Croatia.  They earned Level 4 on all of their elements in the short program and received positive GOEs on everything except for the side by side double lutz.  Their free skate was overall fairly clean with the only error being a negative GOE on their side by side triple salchow.  They earned Level 4 on everything but the death spiral which earned a Level 3.  Their biggest technical issue is their side by side combination jump, as they only had a double toe + double toe.  They can earn a trip to the Final with a medal of any color.  They have the 2nd best short program, 4th best free skate, and 3rd best total scores.

Alexandrovskaya and Windsor had a disappointing start to their JGP season.  Their short program in Latvia had several Level 3 elements and they even earned a negative GOE on their step sequence.  Their free skate had issues as well with problems on both of their side by side jumps and they received no credit for their pairs spin.  However, they have had more success as seniors, winning the bronze medal last week at Nebelhorn Trophy with personal best scores and qualifying for the Olympics.  While their scores there were much higher than any junior has set this season, the short program has very different elements than what they competed in Nebelhorn and there are more elements in a senior free skate.  They won’t have had much time to adjust back to their junior level programs and there are less technical points on the table. They need a gold medal to guarantee themselves a spot in the Final.  They have the 7th best short program, 9th best free skate, and 8th best total scores.

Lu and Mitrofonav have an outside chance of qualifying for the Final if they win a gold medal here after a career best 5th place finish in Belarus.  Their biggest technical upgrade would be in their levels, as they only earned a Level 2 on their steps and death spiral in the short program and a Level 1 on their twist.  They also had program components in the 5s.  Their free skate had four falls, on all of the jumps in the program.  They have the 9th best short program score.
