    Gatchinski can definitely do 4s in practice, I feel like I've read that in articles for a few seasons now. I assume once he gets more consistent with his current content he'll add the other quads to the program. Also, Ando would have gone for the 4s if she felt she needed it, but by the end of her career, she didn't need it or even a 3-3 to win big events so it wasn't worth the risk. With quads becoming so prominent in the men's field I wouldn't be surprised if Artur starts trying different quads in his programs.

    I remember Mishin (or Artur?) saying in an interview that they were originally planning on adding the 4Lo in the second half of last season, but obviously things weren't going quite well enough for them to happy doing that...

    Bazarova and Larionov won't compete at nationals because Larionov is having trouble breaking in his new skates. Their coach said that the fed will decide if they are going to Euros I can't imaging they will say no.

    puh, this is hard. so there is really no chance for s/k or m/r making the team?

    only if the russian fed totally dumps k/s, what won´t happen.

    b/l had a good season and surely deserve this spot, but i don´t like the aftertaste.

    Hm. 2-quad short? It would be quite risky. Or perhaps a 3-quad long?

    Or Mishin just toying with us all.


    How's everyone looking, Eislauffan?

    Apparently Gachinski has problems with his boots that is also why he took them off immediately after his skate. The doctors don't know exactly what is wrong.

    AGAIN? Ugh. Poor Artur.

    Actually, this seems to be becoming a bigger problem around the world. I seem to hear of boot problems a lot more lately.

    Can one not make an observation anymore without attracting criticism?

    It just seems that there have been a lot of boot problems lately. Sheesh.

    he said something about an "unpleasant feeling" in his feet which is getting stronger when he doesn't take off his boots.

    Sounds to me like his feet are going to sleep. That's usually a fitting problem or a lacing problem, but I can't imagine a skater of his level having a lacing problem, and I'd have thought he'd be in customs...

    This may be old news by now, but if google translated correctly, it looks like Leonova might have a new LP for tomorow's free skate: http://www.allsportinfo.ru/index.php?id=66925
