    Back to news from Russia: I heard that Katarina Gerboldt/Alexander Enbert have switched to Oleg Vasiliev. I don't have confirmation yet, but the source is reliable.

    Artur Gachinski's new "Anna Karenina" LP as performed at a show in Korea.

    Fancam ahoy!

    The lighting is awkward so Artur is pretty obscured for most of it, but it does look interesting. His jumps look solid. I will give it a cautious "like" at this stage.

    That's great. Glad they have not retired and they are getting some attention now.

    Gachinski's LP has a lot of potential.

    I believe these 2 interviews indicate that Stepanova/Bukin plan to compete on the Senior Grand Prix this fall:
    Coach Alexander Svinin: http://www.team-russia2014.ru/article/10454.html
    Alexandra Stepanova: http://www.team-russia2014.ru/article/10457.html

    Julia Lipnitskaia interview: http://www.team-russia2014.ru/article/10444.html
    Via Google Translate: She will go on vacation May 20 to Cyprus with family and friends, will train in Novogorsk from June 7 to July 4 and then return to her usual rink.

    Well the only lock in senior ice dance is b/s. The most vulnerable is r/t even to a first year senior team as s/b would be.

    Any news on Radionova? Will she do senior GP or JGP?

    Is she even age eligible for the senior GP?

    Radionova turned 14 in January so she's old enough for Senior B/Grand Prix in 2013-14 but not Europeans/Olympics/Worlds. The ISU's minimum age requirement will be raised to 15 for all ISU Senior competitions in 2014-15.

    When I interviewed her at Junior Worlds, she said that she'd like to do the senior GP. But I don't know what the final decision is.

    If Sotnikova, Tuktamysheva and Lipnitskaya were allowed to do that, it would be unfair if the Russian federation did not allow her to do the same.

    Not if the ISU age rule changed though. But I guess it isn't changing until 2014-2015 season anyways. I also wonder about Pogorilaya and Gosviani regarding senior GP. After her rough season it's unlikely Biryukova will get any events and now Shelepen is competing for Israel. Even Korobeynikova may have trouble getting 2 events. Radionova should definitely move up if she wants to, and I think both Pogorilaya and Gosviani are more deserving of GP assignments compared to Leonova and Makarova at this point (I don't care if SB and WS points say otherwise, Anna and Nikol skated a lot better than Alena and Ksenia this season, and the Polinas, and Sofia...)

    It's about time that they matched up the ages being eligible for the Senior GP along with the Olympics and Worlds. It was ridiculous that Mao was old enough to skate against Irina and Sasha on the GP in 2005 but then tell her she was to young to be at the Olympics against the same skaters.

    Didn't they also have a rule at some point that if you got a medal at Junior Worlds, you could go to Senior Worlds regardless of being age ineligible?
    (I think it was before my time )

    Good for them, if this is true! Vassiliev is an excellent coach. May be this change will work for them.

    That was long ago, and that loop hole was closed very quickly, making Mao ineligible to compete at the 2006 senior worlds.

    Yes, this rule existed for Junior Worlds medalists and it allowed for example Sarah Hughes to compete at the 1999 World Championships although she was still 13 years old at that point (birthday is May 2, 1985) after she took silver at the 1999 Junior Worlds. But as Vash01 pointed out, this rule is gone for more than 10 years now.
