I am happy that Maria/Jerome have good throws, I just hope they can do triple twist in future.

Did they do any side by side jumps?

My understanding is that they did 3T-3T sequence jumps and 3S in their LP skate, but the quality is not very good. Their triple twist looked very high but the catching is not ideal. Overall, they still need time to grow.

As for Maria/Jerome, their separate elements looked pretty well. :)

Maybe my understanding is wrong, for I am not Russian myself.

It's disapointing for I/M since the girl has so much charisma, she looks great when she skates, except for jumps. Sad. I wish she could improve in that area.

M/B hopefully will be the good suprise this year. They both look so classy, for once this is a pair that look great in everything they do. Even a few seconds on video is enough to be very excited about their programs and how they will do in the future.
It's crazy to think that Blanchard might have never got the possibility to skate pair again when he is obviously one the most talented pair skater in the world. I've rarely seen such elegance, class and confidence in a pair skater.
I just hope they will make it to Euros and Worlds.

Good to hear that Martiusheva/Rogonov did a decent job :)
I love these two!

yeah, i agree, and also they're an item, so it's impossible that this pair will split.

when i watched them last season, their sbs single jumps seem really out of synch to me, is that improved this season?

Last season was the first one they did a sbs triple as Vera has always struggled with it and one could still see that last season. Hopefully now with more time to get used to the jump that will have changed.

Sad about I/M. :( I love her skating very much and this team is very innovative. Surprisingly, she wasn't so inconsistent in their first competitive year together. Therefore I always hoped that these issues would sort themselves out. Le sigh.

Does anyone know what happened to the young junior pair from Moscow Izina MOISEEVA / Vladimir MOROZOV ? They should be skating JGP this year

They broke up, I think.

Oh I know I absolutely adore her skating, but she really can't jump. Why can't they send her to a jump doctor like Mishin?

If not isn't she fairly young, why can't she maybe try something like ice dancing, she really has a gorgeous look about her (maybe she's too small for ice dancing and I realize Ice dancing is difficult) but maybe she'd be young enough to learn it.

Lubov Iliushechkina is not that young, she will be 19 in November! (though she does look like 15.)

She must have been much more consistent in the past because they were 2nd at junior Worlds in 2007-08 and 1st at Junior Worlds at 2008-09. It was only the last season when it somehow went downhill...

Sorry, Morozov skates with Kseniya Ozerova (Enbert's ex partner). Or it's Golubev who skates with her? I always mix these obscure Russian pair skaters.

Since I can't stand Vera's partner (I think he looks like a truck driver) I wish they could pair up Vera with him. Although Vera's no great jumper herself she's better than the other girl. Disappointing because the other girl is GORGEOUS.

I was told that the jumps of Bazarova are considerably improved.

As for Yuri, I do not think he looks ugly, besides I heard from many people that he is one on the nicest guys-kind and polite-and also very clever. Also a reliable partner.

I would prefer him rather than somebody sweet looking but selfish and stupid.
