    I am more worried about Enbert than about Davankova. He was not particularly strong jumper with Gerboldt, so why would he suddenly became Mr consistent now? I think it may be another couple that will be breaking my heart (like Martiusheva-Rogonov used to), but this time because of the male partner. It would be extremely sad because in majority of countries they would be the countries' champions and sent to Europeans/worlds, but in Russia they will drop down in standings if they are not technically solid, and then the only place to see them will be international B competitions.

    May be it was posted earlier but I missed it (I was on vacation for 3-4 weeks). Why did the RSF want Davankova to skate with Enbert and not with Bobrov?

    Interview with Galina GolubKova, who is the junior national team coach. Crappy Google translate says that Sotskova, Medvedeva and Sakhanovich all did well. Proklova is injured but recovering and the hope is that she will make the last two JGP events. Gainetdinova/New partner also did well and have potential.

    My understanding is that she had tryout with Bobrov and they did not look good together (whatever that means). The federation recommended her not to proceed with him. Seeing her with Enbert I think they look very good together, the same lines and extensions, I am just worried about his jump consistency. I am surprised that Bobrov did not go back to Nagalatiy. They were at reasonable level, and him trying new partners is putting him back and not sure if they will be anywhere as good at JGP (or if they are sent at all to JGP).

    Tuktamysheva is back on the ice...but what the hell is her costume?! Looks like some tent.

    Well I like Pogo's costume :shuffle:

    I can't say that Radionova's body grew but her face looks more womanly.

    I think in theory it's beautiful but in execution it fails. I hope it's just a prototype and is remade.

    yeah, epic fail. The sleeves must be extremely disturbing.

    Thank you, DobrinFan.

    To me it looks more interesting than many of the usual standard princessy costumes/dresses, but I agree that the sleeves must be quite uncomfortable for skating.

    Also I am tired of seeing Tuk all in black. I have the impression she has skated in basically the same dresses for both programs for 5 years by now.
    After the catastrophe that the Olympic season was for her one might think her team might overthink her packaging. Apparently not :duh:

    That dress makes Liza look older than she actually is. She could look beautiful is so many colors, idk why she can't skate in anything other that black :wall:

    And I never understood why she's always trying so hard to look 15 yrs older than her actual age...

    I freaking love Leonova....this program is worthy of 10s for this picture alone. ;)

    Pogo looks absolutely gorgeous. Is Tuk's dress a homage to Kat Witt's WSS costume? I don't like it, but it's different I guess. She should try a leotard instead of those leggings.

    (do we have the go ahead to post pictures in threads?)

    Oh no, Tuk!!!? Why Black again??? Mishin need to hire a new costume designer for her!!
    Anna Pogo looks decent, I think. Much better than last season.

    Poor Tuk, wearing that loose black sack? Pogo's ice-blue dress is beautiful. Leonova her wonderful perky self, though not yet in costume. Guys looking great, too.

    I hate Liza's dress with a fiery passion. Hopefully that's just a practice outfit or something. I like that she's doing something different but I think in a competitive format, that dress would be really distracting.

    Anna's dress is a step up from last year's. I really hope she's ditching the OTB tights this season (that goes for all of the skaters)...once she pulls the look together with hair/makeup, I think it will look great.

    Adelina's hair looks darker...makes her look more mature. I really hope she's consulted with some people and will be better styled this season.

    Elena looks only slightly bigger...love how you can see she's performing even in a still picture. J'adore Elena! :love:

    Julia also looks only slightly bigger. Still cute as button.

    Alena looks great and voidy as ever!

    I can't wait for the videos!!

    Who was that blond girl? I don't know her name...

    He switched back to singles shortly after he switched to pairs, coach Rukavitsyn. He skated singles all last year (2nd at Universiade, 3rd at Ice Challenge). The guy in red is Eteri's student Moris Kvitelashvili (5th at Universiade, 1st at Cup of Russia Final).

    Thanks , good for him staying singles. I loved him at Universiade. Hopefully he and Dmitriev Jr. get the Grand Prix host spots. (Im guessing Kolyada is definetly out after his broken ankle).

    Not bad. :) I definitely like her new flying camel spin but her combo spin is still really messy looking. The program has potential but it's still very unrefined. She's lacking the finesse needed to make it look passionate without looking sloppy. Hopefully she'll continue to work on it (and that 2A)(y).
