Some info about the stars
"New Ice Age is "picking" up pairs
In an environment of secrecy at one of Moscow's indoor rinks the first participants ,of one of the most popular Russian TV show - "Ice Age , are already training for the new season ".
The Management of Channel 1 has decided that this would be the final season of the show. And gave one goal to the head of the program, Ilia Averbukh : to make it brilliant and memorable .
At this time on the ice will see the best members of past 3 seasons. Their final list have not yet been approved - and the star athletes just look at each other, choosing a pair.
Alexei Tikhonov has three candidates: Anna Bolshova ,Alisa Grebenshchikova, with whom he had skated in the past seasons, and Ekaterina Guseva - former partner of Roman Kostomarov.
As we learned ,Guseva is the one with whom Tikhonov is training most of the time.
They became friends while shooting "Hot Ice", which successfully went on the First Channel.
For now ,Roman Kostomarov, Alexei Yagudin and Maxim Stavisky are cutting circles on the ice alone.
- By mid-August, all pairs should be determined, and will begin full training - told us Ilia Averbukh. - And since all the participants already have experience of skating - I think by September, all numbers will be worked out and ready to shine."
