Kevin Reynolds is landing 4loops in practice and was supposed to attempt one at Canadian Nationals.

Kevin Van Der Perren used to land it in practice too, years ago, back in his heyday.

I know. Also Dai landed 4F in practice and Plush landed 4Lutz. I think it's time for us to finally see a new quad landed in competitions, not in practice only. That would be really great methinks.;)

Menshov didn't try yet the quad loop in competition, I think and it is unlikely he would do so at Worlds if he gets to be sent. He practiced the quad loop over the summer but I don't think he has been doing it lately.
Anyway, the Russian Federation wanted to determine their Worlds team based on the result from Europeans. Konstantin Menshov is not very constistent, let's face it. If he skates at Worlds in the short program like he did at Europeans, he probably wouldn't even make the Final. It is not like he bombed for the first time.
I guess the Federation will also see how Sergei Voronov skates this week at the Universiade. He did a clean short already (but only 3T-3T for his combo).

I feel sorry for Konstantin Menshov, I would be happy for him if he can compete at Worlds. As for retirement, I don't think so. He said at Russian Nationals that he might go on until Sotchi if he is healthy and still enjoying to compete.

It's a pity that we are able to see so few of the photos that they have shot in this session. The magazine printed a few, now there are a few in this blog and they are all very beautiful. I would like to see many more. Actually, if there were a V/T calender I might consider buying it. :shuffle:

There's also the video of the photoshoot:

Does anyone know if ProSport is connected to RIANovosti or if it's just a joint video they did?

I am afraid nobody can answer this question right now, neither FSFR, nor Rukavitsyn, nor Menshov himself.:)

I still want to see 4Loop done in competition! We have seen a lot of 4T and some 4S and that is all. That would be great if a new quad landed successfully in competitions. For now, Menshov and Plush are the only ones who can land it. New Quad!!! New Quad!!! :encore: :cheer:

Maybe we should wait one from Artur Dmitriev, jr? AFAIK he can do 4T, 4S and 4Lo

When Kevin Reynolds claimed he had 4Lo, i thought he probably will perform at
Canadian nationals, instead he under-rotated his jumps. So with Dmitriev Jr,and his past performance from this season he would do the same.

Roman Serov could do a quad loop too. He attempted them in competition but never landed one.

Voronov, in the FS video from Universiade, looks like he reinjured his foot/ankle.

Plushenko did attempt the 4Lz at CoR 2001. He nearly made it too; two-footed it, tried not to put his hand down...and splatted on his butt :shuffle:

He never tried it in competition again after that. I wonder why?

My theory is that he was landing it but not really that well. So when he tried it and fell rather than become overly concerned with landing it they just tossed it for strategy. Or maybe he hurt himself.

Oh no! He never gets a break! :(

A little contradicting information in Russian press. Earlier Gorshkov said in Bern that Gachinski will got to the worlds. But later Rukavitsyn said to Sovsport and Baltinfo that he still does not have any official information. Menshov is currently training as usual. He added that if FSFR decides that Gachinski will go to the worlds, Menshov will be engaged in a show.

But since Gorshkov, the president of the Russian federation, has said that Gachinki will go to the Worlds, isn't that official information?

They would send Voronov at Worlds?
I prefer Menshov than Arthur, he is older, he is the national champion, he performed the Lp great and he has entertaining programs, i think Arthur might crack and his programs are not well this season, unless he would bring back the narcissus program, which I doubt.

They promote each other.

So does that mean Menshov is going to retire?
Rukavitsyn said to gazeta.ru that if Menshov skates the way he did in his LP in Bern, he will be an equal competitor for Plush, and even he can win him over. I think it means that Menshov is not planning to retire, for now.


But since Gorshkov, the president of the Russian federation, has said that Gachinki will go to the Worlds, isn't that official information?Technically it should be the executive committee's decision. Maybe Rukavitsyn meant that official papers are not available yet.
