    I think Anthony has a bit of both of his parents. I thought of Sergei at first glance but then I could see Marina in those features too!

    Sarah Feng, Ponomarenko's dance partner, has qualified for US Nationals at the Novice level (first in Pacific Coast Sectionals).

    I wonder if she also skates pairs.

(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.)

    Couldn't help but notice the golden waltz music in the background

    Feng doesn't compete in pairs AFAIK, and she qualified in 4th place in Novice Ladies at Pacifics (USFS' list of qualifiers is alphabetical by discipline/event).

    How cute! They are very good. And that photo in their Cats costumes - they look like they are the cat's pajamas! How adorable!
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    You think there might be just a little pressure for him to be good at the Golden Waltz.

    Oh wait... the compulsory patterns will probably have disappeared by the time he hits seniors.

    Feng ... qualified in 4th place in Novice Ladies at Pacifics (USFS' list of qualifiers is alphabetical by discipline/event).
    Doh, I didn't even notice they were alphabetized and just assumed the numbers meant something. Anyway, thanks for the correction. I did hunt a bit and was not able to find the actual results sheets from sectionals or regionals. I found the videos at icenetwork, but not a straightforward list of results.

    I posted Sectional results/video links in my blog: http://unseenskaters.wordpress.com/2...tionals-links/ (click on the Regionals link in the navigation bar up top for Regionals results/video links)

    Thanks for the info I just noticed that one of the judges for Novice Ice Dance is Linda Leaver-Brian Boitano's former coach.

    No, that's a different Linda Leaver (judge from Utah).

    ETA other children of famous skaters who have qualified for U.S. Nationals:
    Katia Shpilband in Junior Ladies (daughter of Igor Shpilband & his ex-wife Veronica Pershina whose pair partner was Marat Akbarov)
    Daniel Petrenko in Novice Men (son of Vladimir Petrenko, younger brother of Viktor)
    Gabriella Marvaldi in Intermediate Pairs (daughter of Isabelle Brasseur & Rocky Marval)
    Maxim Naumov in Juvenile Boys (son of Evgenia Shishkova & Maxim Naumov)

    Just kidding. Who would have thought, there are two Linda Leavers in the figure skating world.

    Good for them, I wish them all the best!

    Does Liza Kulik compete? I saw her in the Disson show on Sunday and she is very talented. She's obviously had more training than someone who is skating just for fun.

    Yes, Liza Kulik, who's 11, competed at her first Regionals in Juvenile this past October and was very close to making the Final round -- 5th in SWP Regionals, Juv. qualifying round group D with an excellent score and jumps through 2Lz, but it was the toughest/deepest group (her low spin levels also cost her). If you have an IceNetwork subscription you can watch her compete (she skated #11 of 15).

    Thanks for the info and best luck to all of them! Gabriella and her partner won the 2012 title at the Juvenile level last year.

    Just remembered that young Anthony Ponomarenko was featured in Lynn K. & Logan G-S' vlog from the Senior B & Challenge Skate in Salt Lake City back in September (believe this IN video is free and not geo-blocked): Anthony demonstrates his dance moves to Logan in SLC starting around the 3:30 mark.
