Stanislav Kovalev (Junior Final participant) has switched coaches (from Zhanna Gromova to Viktor Kudriavtsev)

I hope that he will be able to learn that most beautiful jumping style that Kulik got from Viktor K?


Sergei Voronov has been training with Nikolai Morozov since right after Worlds. Morozov is expected to come to Moscow these days. Voronov is already in Moscow. He has two new programs.


Im eagerly looking forward to those new programmes...

Thanks for all the info, Eislauffan!!!

Anna Ovcharova and Polina Agafonova will compete on the junior grand prix circuit for the upcoming season. I have not heard what Polina Shelepen or Sofya Birukova plan to do but maybe someone knows?

I'll have an interview scheduled with Polina Shelepen and her coach Eteri Tutberidze tomorrow, and I'll definitely ask about their plans for next season.

As for the article in the newspaper about Zhulin, he makes it public that he is now living with Natalia Mikhailova (former ice dancer, 2006 World Junior silver medalist with Arkadi Sergeev). From the article it sounds like Tatiana Navka is living or did live with Marat Basharov.

Didn't know if this was already posted somewhere, but according to THIS article (http://sportcom.ru/portal/2010/04/16/66491.html), Lutai and Demirova are expecting a girl, and he is considering changing to Bulgarian citizenship to continue skating.

Well in that article it's said that Mishin stated nothing is sure yet but that Lutai already has become a father.
But didn't they say at the wedding (sometime in April) that she's due in a few months or so?

How old is Natalia Mikhailova? It seems like a bit of an age gap, although I guess that isn't too surprising from Zhulin.

She was born in 1986, so she must be 23/24.

Eislauffen --

Well, this is Ukraine, but they trained mostly in Russia. Apparently ice dancer Anna Zadarozhniuk has to quit competitive skating due to ongoing back problems. :-(

Oh, no. Will Sergei continue on, or retire as well?

I spoke to Polina Shelepen and her coach Eteri Tutberidze. They would have liked to go senior, but when the new age rules pass the ISU congress, she will be too young for senior and will stick with juniors.

As for Sergei Verbillo, he wants to continue. He actually is having a try-out with Alla Beknazarova right now! Alla's partner Vladimir Zuev has to retire because of ongoing knee injuries.

ETA: I saw their try-out today. It looked not bad. But they said that nothing has been decided yet.

Thanks for the update! So does this mean JGP for Polina? I know even by normal age rules she is not old enough to compete at senior worlds or euros this season, but I think she could do SGP and then junior worlds under current rules. If she does stay junior all the way, that's going to be one loaded/crowded JGP ladies team for Russia!
