Nice video with Adelina Sotnikova
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnQpkXeaGSI
Here is Adelina on practice and in school and short interviews with her, her coach and her school teacher

Great video! Adelina is very pretty, she looks a little like Emma Watson, maybe it's the big eyebrows. You can tell she is a very hard worker!

Adelina is adorable! I love how sincere she is saying she is not yet interested in dating. You just know it's not an act and she means it. I love that she is so pragmatic, understands the importance of both rigorous training and education.

TAT is looking much older than the last time I saw her. :( Is she alright? Has she lost a lot of weight because that can make one look tired.

Oh and let `s talk: I know plenty of people in the old country who smoked pot but never touched any other illicit drugs. That's what is old, the belief that all pot smokers end up shooting up and dying from heroin overdose. My late grandmother used to believe that. The good old Gateway Drug pitch. (http://healthland.time.com/2010/10/29/marijuna-as-a-gateway-drug-the-myth-that-will-not-die/ )
I am sensing another round of confusion over correlation vs. causation coming on...

Mukhortova plans to continue her sport career and is waiting for the end of the season to find a new partner.
Vasiliev mentioned that one of her options is to skate in show.
Jerome is in France now.

Hope they give the next partner more than a few months to get their jumps in order LOL!

I don't know whom it will work with, if it didn't work with Blanchard! Jérôme was very talented, reportedly very nice, he was willing and able to represent Russia, he was earning a living in Russia and he was even used to a slightly problematic partner from his previous experience. :shuffle:

Any idea what he will do?

There's a nice young American looking for a partner. ;)

I can't imagine who Maria will get. Although, there's also a nice young American who's decided to skate pairs. :lol:

It's really unfortunate things didn't work out for them, but the depth of Russian pairs may have sealed their fate.

But honestly if she could find the right partner they could be really good. G/E are getting pretty good and she just started pairs. He wasn't really good before going to Moskvina so Maria is already ahead in that regard she just needs a good partner.

I think they're all taken.

I agree, I think she had a shot a blew it. It's too bad they really could have been great, I think she let one competition ruin their whole partnership.

I think it will be difficult to find another partner for her...for various reasons (i.e., she blew it with a stable and talented skater this year, she isn't known for consistency herself, and then there's the attitude and sleeping with the coach factor)

She does seem so sweet and like a hard worker. Can anyone translate the interview or summarize it?
