Ok, should we do a poll, betting on who will be more successful - Ilhan in pairs or Andreev in ice-dance? :lol:

:rofl:

For the moment Ilhan is winning 3-0.
He is already dating his partner, he has won Skating with the Stars and he has appeared in a shampoo commercial on his skates.
And all this, without the help of his mother.

This is already quite an old thread - are these two still skating?

Now we can add a new poll question, who will be more successful in pairs, KVP or Ilhan? :P

Am pretty sure we would have heard about it if they still planned to compete. It's very possible they could still do shows and the like, though.

ETA: Strike the above. Apparently, Sochi is something they'd still like to try for according to this. The article mentioned trainining in the US in May 2012, but don't know if that actually happened.

Mean-spirited theory: article came out March 7th, so before new minimum TS were announced. That might explain scraping plans to travel to the US and train....

This is Ilhan's twitter account and according to recent tweets, plan Sochi is still on.
On 10th september, he twitted he completed 2 training sessions and has 2 more to go. So seems they are training every day.

^Thanks! If they can afford it & don't mind daily training, more power to them.

If you ever happen to see them training, please let us know how they look.

ETA: thanks for the update!

They are on the ice when we train. They are looking good. His basic skating skills are amazing. You would never know that he didn't grow up skating. He's very strong and off ice they can do many of the pair lifts. On ice the lifts are coming and his feet on the turns are impressive, not scary. Oli is a very good partner for him. She's a strong pair girl.

Sounds like they made some good progress since they first teamed up over 2 years ago. Thanks again for the reports & good luck in SLC ;)!
