    More specifically, seeing the success of the new couple Khohlova/Andreev, the ex-champions of "Skating with Stars" Tatiana Navka and Marat Basharov, will also get a chance to compete at worlds. The skate offs will be somewhen in the second week of April.

    There's going to be a skate off between Ilyinyh/Katsalapov, Ryazanova/Tkachenko, Navka/Basharov, Khohlova/Andreev and Gorshkova/Butikov.

    :eek:

    Well, we'll have to see who gets to go to the worlds!

    Great Andrey. Now we'll see this "news" quoted in the press all around the world until the commentators pick it up and say it on TV. Even in five years' time people will say "The Russian fed solmetimes holds skate-offs for the Worlds. Remember Khokhlova/Andreev vs Navka/Basharov."

    Sigh. ;)

    Where we are it is April 1st. Do we have to live according to your time? May I get up tomorrow morning according to your time? I would like that! :)

    brilliant! :lol:

    It works because like any good gag, it has a grain of truth to it, so you actually believe it for a split second.

    Worse, even. Israel is changing to summer time tonight, so one hour of sleep less.

    ETA : although in my particular case it doesn't make any difference as I sleep as long as I want anyway :lol:

    When I read the title I was fuming and ready to go after Pisarev. Good one i was ready to start thrashing Russian fed for subject I/K to unnecessary skate off.

    You know, this got me thinking. Russia really should have tried to wrangle a 3rd dance spot in return for saving worlds. :bribe::skandal

    I mean, how many people would have complained about allowing a quality team like R&T at worlds... well, other than the teams they would beat of course. :D

    You are mistaken. The higher quality the Russian teams are, the more people complain. ;)

    Omg I thought this was real at first. I thought it was an effort to try and get Khokhlova/Andreev there.
