    Well Peggy Fleming once wondered aloud on TV why it wasn't more popular...

    not sure what to think of this music, strange music cuts and and strange gestures and choreo at the beginning.

    like her with open hair, was a performance to build on in the season
    too many mistakes in her LP
    I don't get out of all the coaches she went to Sokolovskaya ?
    she doesn't have a good record of her students

    I hate to say this but the only one that could save Shelepen now is if she
    Dumps Sokolovskaya pronto and go to Morozov

    I'd like this better if she were wearing green velvet curtains, complete with curtain-rod, ā la Carol Burnett.

    I think it may have to do with the fact that there really is only one phrasing used again and again in the same program...similar to the repetiitive phrase in most of the Evita programs we see.

    Ilinykh and Katsalapov are apparently out of the test skates next week; she's still having problems with her shoulder.

    That must be disappointing for them.

    Shelepen has the same weaknesses as before and if anything, they are even more pronounced now. However, this is likely due to how early it is in the season and perhaps because she is still adjusting to the new coach. The programs both have potential though and I like the costumes and overall packaging quite a bit. She has a strikingly beautiful figure out on the ice, and the jumps are still big, if she can clean up the spins, add some more speed, and make the set up for the jumps less pronounced, I think her PCS will improve and she should do fine/well at her GP events.

    gee, it sounds like a bunch of internet posters are the Mighty Judges to whom the skaters owe great results! the level of self-importance (??) around here is really ridicolous!
    i don't know how to insert the reputation thing, so I'll thank Cherub here for all his/her recent posts.

    I read on the Russian forums that Bobrova will be wearing a pale pink dress for the SD and Dimitri will be wearing a dark blue Hussar's outfit. Apparently TAT didn't like their programs that much.

    Also, the russian fed supposedly told BS to go to Shpilband but they opposed it (probs because Dima has a family in Moscow)

    Soloviev may be young but he has been married years now and has a family. It's not you are dealing with the usual singles. I personally do not want to read so much focus on their clothes! It is the first thing that all the people see but ...seriously!! It's not their biggest problem.

    I think she was most influential with Riazinova and Tkachenko and they stayed at 3 (and she only deals with programs but they also had the lowest tech).

    True. But if they're the Russian champs and Tarasova isn't supportive, that's not a great sign... or does she have some beef with Zhulin?

    There was criticism of him by her with the issues around I/K but they are just major controversy causers in Russian ice dance. But they must have such a long history so it might be something else.

    I think these costumes sound nice though I think Bobrova will look pretty in a light-pink dress.
