Watched some old tapes yesterday ' although it doesn't seem that long ago from 2005 FDS and ODS :)

Grushgons had some nice programmes this year .Four Seasons FD probably the FD I liked the most from them .It had nice light and shade some good Morozov choreo and had everything you ever want in a FD ES commentators said :D
Their Charleston OD was great too .Their ODS were always better IMO.

K/Novikov :eek: Watching now it was like a train wreck :shuffle:Very untidy sloppy and their moves in closed holds were poor .Very exciting though :lol:
They were dressed in red/black but can't remember the music now :oIt was all very frantic.Anyone know why they split ?

Fraser/Lukanin unforgettable :lol:

Dom/Shabalin FD Fifth Element .Nice programme lovely pink costumes.Very nice OD Quickstep too.

Delshoes Absolutely beautiful FD to Frida :kickass:
Third in FD but as usual fourth overall :(
Charleston OD really good.

B/A Shadritsa FD liked it a lot one of my favs of theirs:)



Denstas Nice OD but Toy Story what were they thinking ?:shuffle:
They said they'd written the year off after CDS as Albena had been recovering from bronchitis and they'd lost training time :(
FD Bach to Africa which for some reason wasn't popular with fans :confused:I really enjoyed it a lot :shuffle:

N/K FD to Tosca

Any more memories ?

N/K FD to Tosca


Pretty much says it all. :lol:

Delobel and Schoenfelder should have won the FD that year and been no lower than 2nd overall. :mad:

I think Frida was DelSchoe's best FD.

There were also too many couples with D&S as their initials. It meant to you had to type more to explain who you were talking about.

Yeah I agree Tosca was pretty bad... Mainly because of a distinct absence of a certain article of clothing that goes around Tatiana's head...
But I remember them saying that the original Tosca was much more artistic but had to be reworked so they could get their levels.

Kulikova/Novikov.. that's a team I haven't seen discussed in awhile.. I actually forgot their existence until a few months ago when I watched a video of them on youtube. They WERE pretty frantic, not anywhere near any of the best Russian teams.

This is what I thought .They were so scruffy looking too:lol:
When we talk about V/M skating beautiful edges flow etc on a scale with K/N V/M would be one end and K/N the exact opposite end :shuffle:
Did they only compete that season ? They must have been third ranked after N/K and D/S .Did K/Novitski take over third the next season ?

I think K-N split up after 2004-2005 season. And yes, Kh-N were Russian third team at OG in Torino OG.

Wasn't Novikov the Russian Truckie Ice Dancer?

Novikov was with Orlova the 2005-2006 season. It was not an improvement, skating-wise.

That's right :lol:

Another thing I noticed if anyone has the tape of the ODS.In the knc with N/K after their scores it shows a woman in the audience with a little girl waving .The girl is maybe Navka's daughter Anyone know if it was ? Just the way Navka was looking at the monitor. .

Well I'll answer my own question :o:lol:
After seeing the photos of Navka's daughter on the other thread I reckon it was her :)

I know this thread is pretty old but it kind of made me laugh. "Truckie?" Like... truck driver? Aww. Well he didn't start skating till he was like 16, so I think he did ok for himself :)

As of US Nationals in January Vitaliy was coaching in Southern California somewhere. He had a junior team from LA at the competition. They also came to a couple of competitions up here in Northern California.

No clue about Kulikova. Maybe she managed to find a non-coaching job after retirement?

DenStas Bach to Africa was horrible. I think it had some promise earlier, but by Worlds their execution and polish was shot to hell and a lot of the choreography was laughable to say the least.

Navka/Kostomorov had their most boring FD ever (even more boring than Carmen) and were just going from element to element.

Grushons were not as bad as usual, and they performed their footwork cleanly. But there was nothing interesting about their FD. It was almost as generic as Navka/Kostomorov except without the Navka's line.

It seems like all of the teams outside DelSchoes and Belbin/Agosto had major execution problems with their elements (especially entering and/or exiting lifts and twizzles).

After watching 2005 Worlds, it's easy to see how Belbin/Agosto shot up. They performed their dance excellently, didn't leave much room for deductions in their elements, and performed with speed and energy. Something most of the top teams were lacking. DelSchoes should have won the FD by a big margin. Frida is one of their best FDs and probably my second fave competitive routine by them (with The Piano being first).
