    Eleonorad and I are publishing the interviews we made at the European Championships in Zagreb.
    The first are Anna Cappellini and Luca Lanotte, with whom we talked after the gala practice on Sunday morning.
    Anna and Luca told us about their experience in Zagreb, their brand new bronze medal and their goals for the World Championships next month.

    The Azzurri's point of view on the European Championships: Anna Cappellini and Luca Lanotte

    Any comment, critic, suggestion is very appreciated :)

    The next interview is going to be about Stefania Berton and Ondrej Hotarek.

    Thank you for posting. What a terrific interview. I like their honesty especially about their position and strategy
    leading to Sochi. They are a lovely and talented couple!

    Thanks :) I love how both of them always have interesting answers. It was great to watch them win their first European medal!

    I appreciate that they were quite honest. Most skater's answers are otherwise usually boring. I hope they will skate at their best in Fake London!

    Luca is quite the philosopher. Loved their responses.

    I am always impressed at how much he loves to talk about figure skating, about past and present ice dancers, technique, etc etc. I wonder if he wants to stay in the figure skating world once he quits competitions.

    By the way, in case someone missed it, ArtOnIce has now a Facebook page, where we post links to our articles and (in case we go to a competition) backstage pictures. This is the link: https://www.facebook.com/artonice.it?fref=ts
    You can find some pics Eleonorad took during Zagreb Euros :)

    The interview should read:

    'We were robbed. To hell with the judges. Since Ilynikh can beat us even when skating a ridiculous Morozov non-program, our strategy going into Sochi is to smash her kneecaps with a crowbar.

    oxox,
    Anna and Luca'

    But it didn't. :(

    Unfortunately, there is no point penalty for skating to a ridiculous program with some fool shouting about Essie in it (or whatever it is).

    Great interview from Anna & Luca, and thank you very much for posting it.

    Loved this interview - thanks for the link. C/L - one of my very favorite ice dancing teams. After all the Carmen programs I've seen over the years, theirs made me sit up and grin!

    Tell me about! We should totally petition the ISU to include that in the deduction sheets. ;)
