BTW were Imaikina/Bezmaternikh there?

Yes. All of Moskvina's couples were there (except K/S).
Few words about Gerboldt/Enbert: they look beautiful together and skated very well, did all of their elements

Only that they were the best ;) But no details yet, maybe later

oooh, that's exciting! happy to hear that Gerboldt/Enbert did well, too! :cheer2:


"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!"

:D. who would have thought I'd wait curiously for Leonova's programmes? :) btw, I can't hide I'm so looking forward to beginning of the season. that summer break is much too long...;).

Good to hear! They are an exceedingly attractive team. :grope:

V/T missed some elements, but OK overall, looked stronger than other teams, they just need more time. The music (FS) is Prokofiev.
Bazarova/Larionov and Imaikina/Bezmaternykh did well.
Ilyushechkina/Maisuradze: interesting programs (kept FS), but many mistakes.
Stolbova/Klimov did very well, they are in good shape and look really promising

There's been so much discussion about various events I've forgotten. When will we be able to watch V/T? Russian nationals are available online. Anything else?

Did K/S even skate? I'm curious if they made their decided to drop out of SC before or after this week.

Ilyushechkina/Maisuradze: I like these two, he isn't built like a typical skater, that makes him interesting.

Good thing is that they've got time :cheer:

According to Werner, V/T are planning to debut at the Russia Cup in Perm, which will be held October 19-23. Last year, the Russian fed has live streaming for a number of events, so there could be a stream for that. If not, Russian fans have been pretty good about getting vids to YouTube...let's hope that continues.

Lubov is a beautiful skater, but I feel bad for Nodari, because he never, ever misses a jump. If her issues continue, I wouldn't be opposed to him getting a new partner.

No, Kawaguchi/Smirnov didn't skate as he has resumed training only a short while ago. He was injured (I don't know the nature of his injury). Because he apparently was off the ice quite long and they lost a lot of preparation time, they withdrew from Skate Canada.

The music (FS) is Prokofiev.


By this, can we assume Romeo and Juliet?

Very well possible. This is beautiful music, but a little overused. Prokofiev has written other wonderful music, so maybe they're skating to "Cinderella", "Peter and the Wolf" or even "The Love for the three Organes"!

You rock Autumn_girl. :respec:

V&T do have plenty of time, and I'm glad they're looking good already.

I hope I&M have a better season than last. I agree with Oleada that if she continues to not land jumps that he should look into another partner.

Are Bazarova's jumps looking stronger? I hope so and I also hope that she's filled out a bit. She was looking overly thin and a bit weak last season. Some muscle tone could only help her. Glad to hear B&L are doing well at this point though. Love them.

To those who can't wait to see V/T making their debut on the international arena:

This man, again, opened his big mouth to reveal the whole truth about his split with Maria to the press... LOL

I just can't see any superiority in their elements from the video.
