because of the lack of good results, just look at Leonova, she isn't much like here and still isn't but I did notice forumers here have taken the name Leonova more seriously not just another non factor, something Ksenia doesnt have
gee, it sounds like a bunch of internet posters are the Mighty Judges to whom the skaters owe great results! :confused: the level of self-importance (??) around here is really ridicolous!
i don't know how to insert the reputation thing, so I'll thank Cherub here for all his/her recent posts. :)

Was the pairs test skate today (Sunday)? I hope Martiusheva-Rogonov do better this year.

I read on the Russian forums that Bobrova will be wearing a pale pink dress for the SD and Dimitri will be wearing a dark blue Hussar's outfit. Apparently TAT didn't like their programs that much.

Also, the russian fed supposedly told BS to go to Shpilband but they opposed it (probs because Dima has a family in Moscow)

Soloviev may be young but he has been married years now and has a family. It's not you are dealing with the usual singles. I personally do not want to read so much focus on their clothes! It is the first thing that all the people see but ...seriously!! It's not their biggest problem.

Nowadays, that's a good sign.

I think she was most influential with Riazinova and Tkachenko and they stayed at 3 (and she only deals with programs but they also had the lowest tech).

True. :lol: But if they're the Russian champs and Tarasova isn't supportive, that's not a great sign... or does she have some beef with Zhulin?

There was criticism of him by her with the issues around I/K but they are just major controversy causers in Russian ice dance. But they must have such a long history so it might be something else.

I think these costumes sound nice though :) I think Bobrova will look pretty in a light-pink dress.

Maybe not the biggest, but if her posture has improved so that she's now the second coming of John Curry, you would never know it in those heavy, voluminous monstrosities -- second only to Kharis Ralph's Cinderella dress -- she used to wear.

Bazarova/Larionov are in good shape also Stolbova/Klimov now have triple twist
Martiusheva/Rogonov had some trouble and Martisuheva fell on something

Autumn Leaves by Roger Williams

Very literal minded costuming, I must say

No. Roger Williams popularized Autumn Leaves/Les feuilles mortes in the US. The music was written by Joseph Kosma on a theme of Massenet. (poème d'octobre). The words are from a poem by Jacques Prévert.

Yves Montand did introduce the song. Edith Piaf had a hit with it too. What a beautiful video. Thank you to whomever posted it. You made my day.
