Just noticed on that list that junior lady Daria Afanasieva's coach is listed as Ilya Klimkin

Adelina Sotnikova is the 2014 Olympic champion!
re. Lipnitskaya - Oh, so being on the "senior" team is more about the funding and preparation, rather than the events to which the skater will be sent in the coming season...because Lipnitskaya is nowhere close to the age of going to Sr G-P events. As someone else corrected me, she just turned 13, not 14.
Dick Button Historical Quote of the Month: "With them it's all about the most movement per measure." (commenting on Bestemianova/Bukin, during the 1988 Olympics, Calgary)
Is she old enough to compete in Juniors the next year? Could we see her at JGP and Junior worlds? I think the skater needs the be 13, but I am not sure by when she needed to be 13 to be competing this coming year.
Where is Gosviani? Not on the list?
