    I know I'm going to be disappointed if Robin isn't dressed as a giant mouse.

    Sorry, no mouse costume for Robin. As Aliona explained to the media at the test skate, he is the prince: http://www.handelsblatt.com/eiskunst...r/8723870.html

    Aliona also said that "Nutcracker and Mouse King" is a German fairy tale by E.T.A. Hoffmann. Coach Ingo Steuer noted that they wanted to combine Russian and German culture, so they used the Russian music from the ballet that is based on a German fairy tale.

    More comments from Aliona and Ingo to come in the new edition of "Pirouette" that has gone to print today.

    BRAVO for Kolbe/Caruso. They were terrific at Euros 2013.

    Does this mean S/S are going to wear something conservative this year???? Not even a crazy Sugarplum Fairy outfit with ribbons and icing for Aliona? Or maybe they're saving the special costumes for the SP. Anyhow, can't wait to see both programmes! I like that idea of mixing the Russian music and German fairytale, it's nice thought.

    Great news for k/c. unfortunately nelli zhiganshina still waits for her documents from moscow, which confirm that she will be released of the russian government and can get a german passport. time is ticking. this would be such a shame, if z/g will miss olympics again

    Great news for Kolbe and Caruso!
    I am keeping my fingers crossed to Nelli Zhiganshina. They were 10th in the last Worlds, so Germany could send two dance couples, could not it? And Z/G are one of the voidiest ice dance couples around!

    Kolbe/Caruso were 8th at the last Euros, so they're no slouches either. More traditional and 'pretty' skating; I don't think we'll be seeing them as zombies anytime soon.

    I'm sure koch/nüchtern will keep their eye on zhiganshinas citizenship issue

    they were so promising in juniors, a shame, we can only send two couples to euros. hope the german fed will give all of the three teams a try at isu championships this season

    press release by the german fed about the test skates of the top 3 in each discipline
    http://eislauf-union.de/Nationalmann...view_news.html

    as for the photo we saw s/s, v/vcl, w/w in pairs, z/g, k/c, koch/nüchtern in ice dance, lieber,fentz, streuble in men and hecken, weinzierl, hoffmann (if it was her, she looked so tanned on the picture) for ladies.

    although the german nominantions selection for the olympics were not published, out of the article,it seems, that the spots will be decided at the end of nationals in december. german fed kinda surprised me. i would have bet, that euros will be the deciding factor for ladies, men and pairs (if vcl gets his passport), as i imagine z/g and k/c are safe entries for ice dance (if she gets her passport). but good choice, so the chosen competitor can have a good preparation without any stress and maybe some spots to euros or worlds afterwards will be given to younger skaters.

    ^^^ I thought Savchenko/Szolkowy deserved their own music news thread so I've posted this latest article link and copied over some earlier, relevant posts from here into this new GSD thread: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...13-14-programs

    If Aliona is still the one designing the costumes, then expect the usual fabulously bad taste.

    oh, you are so ziggy
    i think the worst costumes were definetly last year and this was due to their collaboration with a german designers. so aliona was not responsible for that
    they had some great costunes (schindlers list, out of africa, send in the clowns, pina), but some horrific to (indian theme, out of space)
    can't wait to see them, but hope for some great worke as in last olympics

    have you forgotten, that i/k were just one place in front of them, and r/t one behind at last season worlds? they are an absolute danger to them
    kidding, you are absolutely right, don't know, what the problem is, since this process is going on for a really long period now

    The problem lies within the Russian authorities. They always take a long time before they release someone from their citizenship. My Russian neighbour, who has been living in Germany for ten years also applied for German citizenship, got it granted and has been waiting several months for his release now. You have to prove that you don't any tax money in Russia among other things. Nelli Zhiganshina told me that technically the authorities are obliged to process your release within six months. She applied in early May for her release, so she should receive it by early November the latest. She was just hoping it happens faster.
