And another :sekret: tidbit I read on Maxim Kovtun's sprashivai.ru. He apparently was kicked out of Morozov's group for bad behavior and (too much?) alcohol.

I had such high hope for Kovtun. :drama:

Oh yeah and Kovtun is with Vodorezova now. I don't know if this has been posted here. His former coach from Ekaterinburg decided to stay with Morozov's group.

Gordei Gorshkov's new short program is Still Got the Blues by Gary Moore [choreographer S. Komolov] (Yay, no more Four Seasons torture :cheer2: :D)

Reportedly getting a new long as well.

Source, translations from fsonline.ru

I think it said Blues by Gary Moore so I'm guessing it's Still Got the Blues since it's on his facebook page :lol:

I wonder which country they will represent. He represented Italy at the 2010 Olympics, and the following season he still competed at the GP events for Italy, so if they wanted to represent France, it is like if both of them were changing country. Would each of them have to sit up 2 years, or how would that be done?

Any news about whether the Russian skating federation will release her?

From the article (apparently sports.ru just used and translated material from French media) it seems pretty clear that they are going to represent France or at least want to represent France. They are training in France with a French coach. Since he probably kept French citizenship he should be eligible to skate for France again one year after his last competition for Italy. She still has to wait, though. Her last international competition for Russia was in the Grand Prix last year.
As for her release, this of course might take longer especially since the Russian Federation president said earlier when it was first reported that she teamed up with Kocon a few months ago that he is not planning to release her right away.

Here is the original article: http://www.ouest-france.fr/actu/actuDet_-Sur-la-glace-yonnaise-des-perles-rares-du-patinage-_40867-2098624_actu.Htm

It says they skate in Bercy and it seems she is ready to sit out as much time as needed:
Aux Français Volants, on n'hésite pas à aller prendre des partenaires étrangers, mais ça n'a rien d'évident : les pays n'ont pas envie de lâcher leurs bons éléments et il faut respecter certains délais avant de patiner sous un autre drapeau.

Thank you. The article also states that Kocon has double nationality (Italian and French).

Apparently Bobrova and Soloviev performed their short dance in an exhibition and it was very entertaining
There may be video, I'm super excited!

I think they are going to do really well with polka. She has a certain exuberance that is well-suited to this dance--and talk about a smile that could light up an arena!

Also, I'm so happy Lubov found a new partner--can't wait to see them in action. Thanks for the updates, everyone!

Thanks a bunch for the videos!!! Any of Monko and Khaliavin? (that's probably spelled wrong)
Also, do you mind if I post these on other forums to share?

After watching it for the first time, here are my comments:

Her posture is much better!!! Sure it isn't Tessa Virtue or Ekaterina Gordeeva perfect, but it's still much improved.
Also, their twizzles were much more in sync. I always thought that Pechalat and Bourzat's twizzles were at their peak under Zhulin, and I think they look much better for Bobrova and Soloviev.

I'm super excited to see their Free now!
