    He did mention in his AOI interview having a flu just before the show when asked why unlike SavShel they dont' skate their SP and LP in the show. He replied he is not sure he can right now.

    It was equally ambiguous in Russian. It least for me

    Am shocked there is a skater with high enough grades to get anywhere near the med school. Most of them skip the school and even those who dont are not that good....
    I don't know which nationality/skaters you're refering to but I would like to mention that Stéphane, Sarah and Jamal all have the possibility to study medicine with their high school degree

    How many programmes they skate is not the skaters's decision but Höner's.

    I think he means they are going to treat it as a qualifying round before Worlds, which is really what it is. No need to burn out/exhaust yourself just to achieve a minimal qualifying score, kind of like Alissa Czisny had to do at Sectionals in order to advance to Nationals this season or how Nicole Bobek intentionally doubled some of her planned triples during the qualifying round at the 1995 Worlds. I recall Angela Nikodinov winning sectionals one year and all she did in her LP was a 3toe and she doubled all of her other jumps. A watered down, conservative skate is all that is needed at this event. Why do more?

    Yes, but he still was an ice dancer. Unlike, say, Najarro, who while being a brilliant choreographer is not an ice skater.

    The Russians (or ex-USSR) obviously. In almost every Yags interview it was mentioned he was a decent pupil and it was declared to be an exception rather than a rule.

    Yes, exactly and Trankov said - if I remember correctly he was asked why SavShel skate their competitive programmes and they dont' he replied SavShel's programmes were fun etc, but he had a flu and is not sure he could skate the SP/LP in one go and besides they received the music they are to skate to in AOI from the organizers.

    The organizers just wanted to see Aliona in that pink catsuit.
    Those who never succeed themselves are always the first to tell you how.
