    Tuktamisheva will be working with Jeff Buttle
    Her SP is Latin American themed.

    WARNING: According to Vagabond there is softcore porn in here that is VERY VERY OFFENSIVE!!!

    So here is the text from the article if you don't have ad-block.

    Macassar88, would you please stop posting links to sites with softcore porn ads? I have asked you before, but you persist.

    If I wanted to look at such ads, I would *not* be looking for them on FSU.

    I find your total disregard of other people's sensitivities extremely offensive.

    First of all, I posted this article not so that I could trick people into looking at soft core porn but so that I could share an article about a very popular Russian skater and some news about her program. I think that you're taking this too seriously. Anyway, I have ad-block on my computer so I didn't realize that there were offensive ads.

    Second of all, I don't think you've ever actually brought this up with me. Maybe you're confusing me with someone else.

    Macassar88, your link is broken.

    This interview with Elizaveta Tuktamisheva is mostly about her time in South Korea (April 26-May 6) skating in Bobrin's ice show tour:

    give my best;

    she talks about the upcoming seasons; they had many proposals for the music but she said it is to early to give any details, her pupils just started to be back in training. furtehrmore they are trying to get/stay healthy.

    question about her personal taste of music: classic pieces, contemproary arrangements, opera.

    talk about summer camps. didn't get this really. she didn't want to go to latvia like zhulin

    question if k/s have someone to challenge in practice; she agrees in mentioning gerboldt/enbert

    talk about many skaters are leaving st.petersburg for moscow. she claims financial issues reasonable for this. income and support seems to bigger in moscow.

    bobrova/soloviev, kovtun, sotnikova are mentioned, who are touring in different shows. kavaguti/smirnov will focus on getting and steay healthy and need extra time for rehabilittation. the olympic season is much more important than the shows in summer.

    they went healthy into thw worlds and if they get some invitations and their bodies are okay, they may join some shows.

    talk about the syncro of k/s which seems to get better and better. moskvina says it s a lot of work to get that syncro and its important mentioning berezhnaya/sikharulidze vasiliev and dimitriev with partners who had also great syncro.

    olxmpic torch will travel through st.petersburg, she gets an official invitation to carry the torch, but she can't give any details now, because she doesn't know which grand prixs k/s are getting and so she doesn't know, if she will be in town.

    Thanks so much for the translation! I like it that K&S are focusing on getting healthy for the Olympic season.

    The younger skaters need the experience skating with tours to improve their artistry. For Yuko and Sasha, staying healthy is more important.

    It will be so great to see the great Tamara Moskvina carrying the Olympic torch!

    Is she definitely going to retire from coaching after Sochi Olympics?

    I'm confused: is Jeffrey Buttle choreographing Tuktamysheva's SP or is Yuri Smekalov? Or is she having multiple programs done?

    No, I am not confusing you with anybody else. Go back and read posts 179, 194, and 195 in this very thread.

    It's really very simple. If you want to post the information from those websites, you can (1) do so without posting a link, (2) post a warning, and/or (3) turn off your "really strong ad block" before you post just to make sure that there isn't a link.

    I would prefer not to put you on "Ignore," as I find many of your posts interesting and informative, but if this is how you feel about posting pornographic links, I may have no choice.

    Thank you for posting the link to the interview. I am wondering about the mention of Gerboldt/Enbert. Tamara Moskvina says "with us in our group the strong pair Gerboldt/Enbert is skating". So, is this an older interview that was just published now (May 18) or didn't Gerboldt/Enbert leave the group at all? Or did they come back? I had reported the coaching change to Vasiliev myself, based on a reliable source. I hope to find out when I get to St. Petersburg.

    I've noticed Russian websites tend to have those types of ads as popups. I tend to avoid clicking on them if I'm in a place where I can't view NSFW items. Rather than expecting someone generous enough to find and share the links to also turn off her ad bloc, perhaps you should consider installing the same ad bloc (clearly it's very effective) and/or avoid clicking the links to any Russian URLs.

    The links themselves are not pornographic in nature. I would also not choose to turn off my ad blocker ever! So best thing to do is if you see .ru don't go to the site.

    Last year, I recall that she had programs done by both David Wison and Tom Dickson, but didn't use Dickson's. Her ISU bio for 2012-13 lists Wilson and Lambiel as her two choreographers (when did she work with Lambiel?): http://www.isuresults.com/bios/isufs00010705.htm

    In this interview (dated May 21) with Tuktamysheva, I think she says Buttle will choreograph both her programs: http://www.team-russia2014.ru/article/figur/10645.html

    Stéphane worked with Mishin's students two years ago, in summer 2011, during the summer camp in Pinzolo. As Liza returned to her old SP and Stéphane helped her with it back then, they mentioned him in her bio.

    Yes, she does.

    Anton (Pimonov), mentioned above, who worked with her on SP, is the dancer, he mostly worked with her on the upper body movements. So no contradiction here, I guess.

    Was Pimonov recommended by Smekalov or the other way around?

    It certainly makes sense to work with specialists who are experts in specific movement, but who aren't choreographers. Lots of ice dancers work with ballroom specialists to work on the choreography they have.

    Neither could I. My computer is probably set up that it didn't show. (or Vagabond's computer is a pervert! :lol: )

    Or maybe Vagabond is one of those people who gets all :mitchell: over the sight of a bit of cleavage. :drama:

    Anyway, Macassar88 please continue to post your links and ignore what was said to you as no-one has died and made Vagabond an admin.

    Hey guys, thanks for defending me here. I definitely didn't think that I was posting porn of any sort, and I just wanted to share some news on Russian skaters.
