    Stepanova/Bukin

    Wow I just had to start a thread for this team.I haven't been this excited about a couple for a long time.
    I really want them to turn senior and I would love them to be on the olympic team .Probably their time will be 2018 as they're so young but is anyone else looking forward to watching what this team can achieve in the future?
    She reminds me of Navka and he of Averbuch out on the ice

    Are they old enough to turn senior this year? I don't think they will make the 2014 Olympic team but an early start could set them up well for the 2018 Olympics. It's always exciting to watch a talented young team. I hope they continue to develop. 'Navka & Averbukh' sounds like a great combination to me. I hope they will stay together.

    I was asking if you had an opinion which was their best performance of the season to watch.

    Planning? No, no. Let's keep it suicidal.

    I saw them at the Junior GPF in Quebec back in 2011 and was very impressed with their edges and power. Definitely didn't look like juniors. Even after an unfortunate fall on his part on the SD twizzles.

    My friends and I started calling them 'son of Bukhin and partner' even though I know he said every reporter *always* asks something about his father's legacy -and didn't sound all that happy about it .

    Baby Bukin
    I remember reading something that mentioned he never consults or asks his dad concerning skating or something like that
    They have power and great presence and edges .Yes they definately don't look like juniors.
    Thank's for the vids Cherub
