    Either Moskvina or Vasiliev will be good for B&L. I don't see Kudriavtsev as a pairs coach, and what B&L need is becoming more like a pair. They jump and spin so far apart, they look like two singles skaters.

    The rule was, they are allowed to switch only if the Federation approves.

    MOSCOW, February 21 (R-Sport) - Gold medal contender Yuri Larionov has recovered from a hand injury in time for next month's figure skating world championships, his coach told R-Sport on Thursday.

    Larionov and pairs partner Vera Bazarova withdrew from last month’s European championships after he suffered the injury, but now the pair is on course to compete in the March 10-17 event in London, Ontario.

    “Bazarova and Larionov are training at full strength and in a good mood,” their coach Viktor Kudryavtsev said.

    The couple still has to prove their worth with a demonstration skate for officials from the Russian Figure Skating Federation.
    "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

    Interesting that they are insisting on a test skate for K&S. I wonder if the Russian fed is hoping K&S blow it and then they can just send S&K to get experience.

    Between V&T and B&L, they'll easily qualify three spots for the Olympics anyway.

    Soloviev looks just like Jonathan Rhys Myers on the second photo!

    I am not so sure. B&L have not competed in a long time due to injury, they split from their coach. They could have a total meltdown. IMO K&S are a safer bet than either B&L or S&K (definitely the latter, because they are nowhere as consistent as they were last season).

    B/L, K/S and S/K were all going to go to the Russian Cup Final but Yuri had just got sutures taken out a week before from a fractured wrist. Smirnov had the flu for a few weeks so the only team out of that group was S/K and they were underwhelming.

    K/S would be the best choice unless illness is a factor. If the Russian Fed just wanted them to "blow it" they wouldn't even bother watching them and send S/K, but in reality why would they do that?

    Just this season K/S and S/K competed four times;

    Cup of China
    K/S-2nd
    S/K-3rd

    Trophee Eric Bompard
    K/S-1st
    S/K-5th

    Nationals
    K/S-2nd
    S/K-3rd

    Euros
    K/S-5th
    S/K-6th

    K/S highest total score this season is 187.99; S/K highest score is 172.55.

    K/S have finished either 3rd or 4th at four out of six World Championships. The were either 3rd or 4th in the free skate five out of six times. That is a pretty good record, so unless they are still really sick or injured I would send them.

    I hope B/L are fine to compete; it reminds me of what happened to K/S last season with a great GP series, no nationals, no Euros not skating for a while and coming off an injury. Plus an obvious coaching problem, I hope they can shake it off.

    Understandable but inconsistent decision. Should Gosviani have skipped the Russian Cup instead?

    Not surprising, but still... Menshov should be wondering what it is he has to do Maybe come back next season as a twenty year old?
