Thanks for posting the link Valentina! :cheer2:

I am amazed that their coach allows Nikita to play soccer in his free time. That must be the worst sport for injuring the knees! :eek: What does it matter that he is careful, when the other players won't pay attention?

They are a VERY awesome partnership because of many things; also because they are both INDIVIDUALLY great skaters, both are, very well-matched in presentation and abilities. Both are amazing skaters individually, what a breath of fresh air!

Soccer is the most popular sport in Russia, most boys and some girls play it in their free time. I also heard that Mishin's students like to play after practices, even Plushenko and little Liza Tuktamysheva ;)

Back to topic: I like this young team very much and hope that next season will be succesful for them, can't wait to see their new programs!

They're too adorable for words.

I can't wait to see their programs and I hope they have a good transition into the senior ranks.

They're so well suited imo. People talk about Elena's charisma, but I think Nikita has it too, just in a subtle type of way. I watch both of them, not one or the other like I do with a lot of other teams.

I am very excited about this pair and loved both their programs from last year especially their OD.

I couldn't help but notice how matured their answers were to some questions, and on the part they discuss about competing together again, they sounded like a couple who had gone through marriage counseling :shuffle:

I love them so much, it embarrasses me. I can't wait to find out their free dance music.

They seem to be very mature for their age! I just canīt wait to see them live next season!

I can't believe they are juniors. They are amazing and could give the current top teams a run for their money. I can't wait to see how it unfolds once they join the senior ranks.

They will probably be the highest ranked Russian team next season. I just hope that the pressure on them will not kill them.
They are just exquisite.
I drove to Junior Worlds just to see them, :lol: weird fan that I am!
