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.
"Randy [Starkman (1960-April 16, 2012)] lived by the same motto as the rest of us. The Olympics isn’t every four years, it’s every single day. He just got it." --Canadian Olympic kayaker Adam van Koeverden
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.
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.

What about Viktor Petrenko's daughter - does she compete?
So many great Russian skater in US!!!!
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.
Are the Krylova-Camerlengo kids taking skating lessons?
Don't waste those good genes!
