This is just a thread to talk about the up in coming rising stars in Russian ladies figure skating. Elizaveta Tuktamysheva ( her coach is Alexei Mishin )Adelina Sotnikova ( her coach is Elena Vodorezova ) and of course one of my favorite Russian Skaters Ksenia Makarova :) Ksenia is 17 years old and was the 2008 Russian Champion and also the 2010 Russian Champion. Elizaveta is 13 years old and is the 2009 silver Russian medalist and the 2010 Bronze medalist. While Adelina is also 13 years old and is the 2009 Russian Champion. I think we can expect great things from these girls in the future !

Thanks for posting these! Sotnikova has great speed on her spins and both she and Tuktamisheva have nice height on their jumps. Of course, we all know Makarova is very talented as well. It will be exciting to watch these ladies in the next quad.

That Elizaveta girl went from 10th in the short to 1st in the long at Russian nationals so she obviously has some skills but needs a lot of work.

Agree - does Mishin work on nothing but jumps? Because almost nothing else in her program has gotten much attention - terrible extension, leg positions, etc. and I don't blame her - she's the student. He's a world-class coach but appears to have only one interest even for the women if her posted youtube program is any indication.

Thanks for the vids, great watching young talent.

I will get excited when they pass puberty with all jumps in tact. That to me is their biggest hurdle!

... Ksenia is 17 years old and was the 2008 Russian Champion and also the 2010 Russian Champion...

Doronina was the 2008 nat'l champion, not Makarova.

OMG. What a talent. She's Lipinski and Cohen all in one. I hope she keeps this up because Sochi will be on home turf and boy is Russian ladies skating picking up stem.

If Lipnitskaya is really 11 now she isn't going to be old enough for Sochi.

Holy Biellman variation though :eek:

If she turns 12 in the next couple of months she will be.

Wow. Very nice, she'll be a star if she can get through puberty as another poster pointed out. Too bad she's not age eligible for Sochi :(
