    Not actually, he only said Ksenia skated last in the warm up and the pressure on her was huge, so she couldn't show her very best, but she is young and will have another chance

    Could someone translate this paragraph please, the automatic translation is hard to understand.

    „Aš dėkoju Ukrainai, kad padovanojo man tokią nuostabią partnerę. Mano tėvai yra iš Ukrainos, todėl su Tatjana turime daug bendra. Su ja lengva bendrauti, treniruotis ir dalyvauti varžybose. Labai gera žinoti, kad taip greitai tapome pasaulio porų lyderiais“, – tikino M.Trankovas ir prisipažino, kad su Tatjana susibūrė dėl pagrindinio tikslo – Sočio žiemos olimpinių žaidynių.
    Is Trankov saying that his parents are Ukrainian? That would be interesting if Tatiana was born in Ukraine to Russian parents, while he's born in Russia to Ukrainian parents..

    "I thank you Ukraine, that gave me such a wonderful partner. My parents are from Ukraine, and Tatiana have a lot in common."

    It looks like that's what he said. I don't think I ever heard him mention it before.

    I am glad that Zhulin takes the approach of not exhausting them if that is what he thinks is right at that point of time. It is a brave and unselfish decision. Russia has already lost some tremendous talent because of skaters being pushed for immediate results - Anjelika Krylova and Maksim Shabalin. In Shpilband's camp there have been injuries related to over-training and quite a few eating disorders. Elena and Nikita are young, I would not wish them to be worn out physically and psychologically. I don't care if they're 7th instead of 5th this year, as long as they stay healthy and continue to delight us.

    Those two are great examples (Anjelica Krylova and Maxim Shabalin) of skaters having to end their careers early due to overtraining/injuries. Although injuries in sports are not always due to overtraining, some bodies may not be able to handle too much, and they need to be sensitive to that- skaters, coaches and their feds. Put it simply, I agree with your post.

    I'll try... My English isn't perfect though

    Next season you will compete at Senior Grand Prix, are you ready for that?
    I try not to think about it, it's just another competition and the most important for me to skate well. It doesn't matter where the competition is and who my rivals are, I just want to do my best

    You technical content is already very difficult even for seniors...
    Yes, it is, but it's one thing to land all these jumps in practices and it's very different in competition, so it's very important to be well prepared. Sometimes I make mistakes in my programs, so I will work even harder

    We all watch you rivalry with Adelina Sotnikova. Will you change something next season to be more competitive? Will you keep you programs?
    I'm not sure about my short program, it's still kind of new, so maybe we will keep it. And I'll have a new long program for sure

    Yes, they did, and in an interview translated here, one of P/B said that this was a positive thing.

    That they were described as being out-of-shape after the fact sounds like one more politically motivated slap at Zhulin's coaching ability, because other people want Insta-Results and for the skaters to be pushed as hard as possible as soon as possible, and it's not Zhulin's strategy to pressure his young skaters that way leading up to Sochi. One of the problems with early success is the tendency to repeat the formula again and again, because if the skaters don't succeed with something new, they are seen as having gone backwards. If he's allowed to stick to the plan to experiment with style and elements to come up with the right formula leading to Sochi, I think he'll have better skaters.

    A big thank you to all the Russian speakers for the translations. Don't worry that your English isn't very good (I think it's fine) since many and probably most of the English speaking fan's Russian is non-existent. We are grateful.

    No, they are not. They are still together and preparing for the next season.

    Did they change the coach? If they stay with Chaykovskaya I don't see any hope that they will improve.

    AFAIK, they didn't...
    And I agree with you, while they're under Chaykovskaya they will always be like... the 5th Russian team.

    Next season they can only dream of being even 5th Russian team... I/K, B/S, R/T, M/K, K/A, Pushkash/Guerreiro.

    Yeah, the most interesting thing about any of G/B's programs this year was that amazing puff sleeve he wore.

    I think they're going to be the 7th Russian team next year.
