Pictures of Tamara Moskvina and Alexei Urmanov master class in Saint Petersburg, featuring barely recognizable Kavaguti-Smirnov http://gallery.ru/watch?a=1T-iIR1

It looks as if they are skating their short program to something from Cats; they look like they're having a lot of fun. I still wish Moskvina would fix their twist, I wonder why she fails to see how bad it is or why she thinks it can't be fixed.

Wow, I actually love Smirnov's new look. I just wish he went with the full beard than the goatee.

I noticed that Zhulin finally got B&S to stop doing the first set of twizzles in a catch foot position which would always threw them off no matter how many times they tried it. The Polka compulsory sequence also looked to move out really well.

What is the problem with the twist? Jw

Smirnov FINALLY looks like a man! HOT! :swoon:

I can't recall them ever performing a clean triple twist.

Whilst most of the teams struggle on this element, Kavaguti/Smirnov pretty much always have a big and easily noticeable crash.

:eek:

I've watched them since 2006 and I've only seen maybe 3 or 4 good ones, the rest are crashy crap. Yuko had never done a good one with her former partners. Smirnov did good one's with his past partner but the saddest part is a few tweaks on Yuko's part (her left leg in particular) and it would be much better; Smirnov would then be able to adjust his speed better as well.

It looked like an adjustment had been made in the sp at Worlds but it was back to looking crashy in the free so it was probably a fluke. Either way, Moskvina just doesn't bother making the adjustments and they are losing points they need, but then again her pairs aren't known for their great twists.

Usual mess... (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=OykmjR3c_uE#t=99s)

Ziggy, you made me look! :P
I like the shaggy hair, I'm not so sure about the beard, it would only go well with the hair if it was a scruffy beard, that one is too even. Having said that
he reminds me of the guy who played Sue's ex in Crocodile Dundee II, and I think Michael Douglas had that look at some point too.

He looked like a man before, just one with lousy haircuts.:( Though I was partial to the cow lick.

Reportedly, their new LP stylistically is close to Claire de Lune. In the SP they portray cats :cat:
