Ovcharova definitely. I hope we will see her this year in the JGP again. What a pity that she had to withdraw from her first two events.

Ovcharova is charismatic, graceful, musical and I luuurve her! I hope she recovers and gets re- assigned for JGP, she is the most complete, IMO, of current Russian Ladies . But voidy? Still to be seen:)
Leonova is definitely going for voids this year. In her recent interview (http://www.fskate.ru/news/47/ , in Russian), she says in the beginning of the program she is portraying a scheming witch, then a romantic witch, and at the end-a furious, pitiless witch :2faced:.
She also says that her short program has more complex choreography than she is used to. Sounds promising.

PS. Re- watched Anna's SP from last year- I forgot that it totally was voidy, LOL. Goooo Anna.

Well rumor is she has a Chicago or Cabaret program this season, so that should be voidy. I really hope she eventually does a program to Cats, because I find that music really interesting and think a program to it could be great, but it would take a special skater to pull it off, but I totally think she could do it. Please get better Anna! The other Russian babies, even with all their 3-3s, are zzz compared to her!

I must say that I am looking forward to Leonova's Witches of Eastwick, even though in general i'm not a big fan of hers, from what I saw in that clip, it looks like a really neat program and with her perkiness it could be really memorable.

Here's the translation of what Alena says about her new programs at her website: http://en.alena-leonova.ru/news/new_programs_for_the_new_season/2010-08-14-83

My image in the free program, in my opinion, is a great contrast to the last season’s Chicago, let alone clownery. No one has ever seen me in such a role (except only for my sister when taking my things without permission). Well, so much for your being on the anxious seat… I am a witch!

LOL

Like others, I'm intrigued by the snippets of Leonova's choreo shown in the clip. Props to her for not going the typical ladiezzzz route. :yawn:

Any news about Makarova?

Any news about Makarova?

I know she was supposed to perform in a show a month or two ago, but didn't because she was injured, although I have no idea if she's still injured or what type of injury she had/has.

Eislauffan, Thanks for the information about Lutai.

I found the interesting video of Alena Leonova practicing. Probably it's her new program.

No, rumors says one of them is recovering from injury, but I don't know who and how serious it is... Novik/Kuznetsov and Kavaguti/Smirnov also weren't there (injuries) :(
