    Marina Klimova & Sergei Ponomarenko's son

    So I was looking at who made the calls for Cup Of Russia this weekend for ice dance and it was Sergei Ponomarenko. I was wondering what he and Marina Klimova were up to these days and I know a lot of my favourite skaters have had children. I also know that many of them skate. I found this link to Marina and Sergei's son, Anthony. He recently won Novice Gold. If he is half as talented as his parents, he has a very bright future in ice dance. His parents are part of the reason why I love ice dance so much.

    Aww! So cute! I hope he doesn't feel the pressure of living up to his parents' excellence though. If he's that good, then he'll get that success if he wants it.

    Thanks for the link! I agree with CassAgain: they are wonderful. And so fun to see Marina Klimova waiting for them off ice with a huge smile on her face.

    That was cool to see her at the end. Has she changed her hair style since 1992? Lol

    It's going to be hard to avoid the pressure of expectations. For their ages, this team is really good. I watched the Icenetwork video from this event and their competitors looked a lot bigger and a lot older. They also had noticeably more ease and fluidity on their ice than the others. (And not just him. I don't know where they found Feng, but she's a pistol.) I think they did a smart thing in taking them to train on the same ice with Olympic caliber skaters, so they can see how much work they still have to do.

    Browsing around Youtube, I found a video of him doing double flip. Does he also compete in singles? (The video shows him doing SBS 2 flips with a girl, but from the laughter I think it was just coincidence.)

    WOW! I am bowled over! They are both wonderful. K&P were also one of my favorite ice dancing teams of all time. Glad that their superior skating genes did not skip a generation. And I love this program (I assume Marina or Sergei choreographed it). Age-appropriate but challenging at the same time. I can't wait to see how they develop. Anthony already has the makings of a heart throb (PSOTY 2022?)

    Wow very impressed with Anthony! and with the girl, she is very up to the quality of a skater at that level

    Hopefully a great couple for the future!

    Thanks for the video link. That was fun to watch. It'll be nice to hopefully watch them rise up the ranks in the years to come.
