    I still wish they'd go back to their "Cats" SP or, at the very least, find some different waltz music. (Yuko's hair reminds me of the heroines' hairdos in those epic martial arts movies set in ancient China. And yes, I am a fan--of those movies and K&S!)

    The new rink is really nice! Looking forward to seeing more vids of this competition from there.

    The music is atrocious, but they skated extremely well (other than the twist) and the choreo is pretty good. Quite a good outing for this early in the season.

    Yuko's hair is
    I think she looks cute.
    "I miss footwork that has any kind of a discernible pattern. The goal of a step sequence should not be for a skater to show the same ice coverage as a Zamboni and take about as much time as an ice resurface. " ~ Zemgirl, reflecting on a pre-IJS straight line sequence

    How old is Kovtun? Who is his coach?

    His jumps are not that good; they seem labored. He has time to improve though. Right now I don't think he can challenge Gachinski.

    Bobrova and Soloviev win Finlandia, but they lost the free skate. They had the highest program components, but their tech marks were lower than those of Capellini and Lanotte.

    He's 17.

    He is newly coached by Buianova with an assist from Tarasova.

    Here is the greatest youtube I have watched this season...of Tarasova watching him at hi performance.

    Bobrova and Soloviev FD

    They fixed her camel spin so now she does the donut position that I love. Her layback is great as well.
    Not sure why they only got level 2 on the twizzles - they looked fine to me
    As for why their Curve Lift only got level 2, there was an issue with Bobrova getting into her position, and they didn't hold the position long enough.

    This is marvellous! Thank you for reposting the link! I hope TAT is always having a defibrillator with her, because at times she looks like she might get a heart attack! Now that’s what I call commitment to a job!

    Yeah for Menshov! I saw him at Nebelhorn Trophy and he already seems to be in pretty good shape. (He did a quad during the final of the Gala!). Ivan Bariev also must have skated pretty well - he is not that much behind Gachinski. Also good to see Kovtun performing so well in the JGP, very impressing skate! Looks like the Russian men are finally on the rise again!

    Any video links to the Russia Fed Cup? In particular Men & Ladies? And Protocols?

    ^No videos besides K/S. No protocols either. It was a closed test skate.

    DaiKozOda already posted the scores above (and mention Bermaternykh got injured, I hope he's ok) here's the more detailed scores for all the skaters. I don't know if the protocols will be published, they usually make it online somehow.

    I'm hope more of the skaters will make it onto youtube, I'm sure they all were recorded I guess we'll have to hope.

    Looks like from the pics Artur took a fall. Early days yet. Looking forward to the GP. Do Menshov and Voronov have GPs?

    Also, Artur's shirt appears to be totally see-through.

    Menshov has Skate America and Cup of Russia. I really like him. He is voidy, his jumps are huge and he is an older guy who keeps working like a dog and keeps getting better.
    Not sure about Voronov's GP.
    improving my ballad- like lines

    Someone needs to work with Lipnitskaya on her clear lack of flow. She still isn't holding her moves and is now finishing every jump and spin with a little hop because she had no momentum left. It's extremely distracting.

    She also needs to know that if she holds her I spin for more than 8 revs in her combination spin, the same feature cannot be counted again for her closing layback spin.
