Yuko's hair is :scream:
I still wish they'd go back to their "Cats" SP or, at the very least, find some different waltz music. (Yuko's hair reminds me of the heroines' hairdos in those epic martial arts movies set in ancient China. And yes, I am a fan--of those movies and K&S!)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_h09Fi5NFiU&feature=plcpThe music is atrocious, but they skated extremely well (other than the twist) and the choreo is pretty good. Quite a good outing for this early in the season.


Yuko's hair is :scream:I think she looks cute.

How old is Kovtun? Who is his coach?

His jumps are not that good; they seem labored. He has time to improve though. Right now I don't think he can challenge Gachinski.

Bobrova and Soloviev win Finlandia, but they lost the free skate. They had the highest program components, but their tech marks were lower than those of Capellini and Lanotte.

He's 17.

He is newly coached by Buianova with an assist from Tarasova.

Here is the greatest youtube I have watched this season...of Tarasova watching him at hi performance.

Bobrova and Soloviev FD

They fixed her camel spin so now she does the donut position that I love. Her layback is great as well.
Not sure why they only got level 2 on the twizzles - they looked fine to me
As for why their Curve Lift only got level 2, there was an issue with Bobrova getting into her position, and they didn't hold the position long enough.

This is marvellous! Thank you for reposting the link! I hope TAT is always having a defibrillator with her, because at times she looks like she might get a heart attack! Now thatís what I call commitment to a job! :)


[B]1 - Konstantin Menshov 233.25pts :cheer:
Yeah for Menshov! I saw him at Nebelhorn Trophy and he already seems to be in pretty good shape. (He did a quad during the final of the Gala!). Ivan Bariev also must have skated pretty well - he is not that much behind Gachinski. Also good to see Kovtun performing so well in the JGP, very impressing skate! Looks like the Russian men are finally on the rise again! :cheer:

Any video links to the Russia Fed Cup? In particular Men & Ladies? And Protocols?

Here are some pictuers from the Federation Cup (http://www.visualrian.ru/ru/site/feature/213014/). There are some really great costumes from some of the skaters. :)

^No videos besides K/S. No protocols either. It was a closed test skate.
