I/k great program.. I think with this they could medal at
Olympics if they skate clean.
B/S don't like the idea for their free dance. Reminds me of
Z& Grishuk when they did the bird program...

Cringefest from start to finish. But what entertainment value she had!

Touching the void.
Oh at last a decent program from I&K. The ballet idea is taken from their Don Quixote FD I suppose, but that's the style they could blossom under. I sure hope they'd not recycle a choreography done two years ago for pairs but well it'll go with me.
Their SD sucks. So far only V&M got is right !
I love the new lifts, I think they're trying again to do an original composition for the layouts of the elements. Let's hope they can deliver but at least they looked a lot more polished than it has ever happened before for them !
M/R are looking good, and there are some really interesting moments there, I like that lift dismount at 1:45 for instance. Definitely looking forward to seeing them perform!

i absolutely love this pair; gorgeous lines of her; i do not know, i am fan from their start as juniors,this is russian pair skating.
seems, like they changed the 3sal into 3toe, maybe she has lass problems with that.
program has some great moments, although i didn't like the concept of solo jump, twist, throw with less transitions at the beginning. bt with her jumping issue, maybe that's the best thing to become more confident.
which other skaters were there?
when will volchkovas group have their test skates? can't wait for biryukova and korobeynikova.
M/R! I hope they have a great season.

Here is some volchkova's group skater (her s.p from today Moscow local competition):
Finally M/R I am also one of them that loves this team.Great to see them do well at the test skate
Really hope for a great season for them!
Does anyone know where they plan to compete this season ?
Just opened a thread on teh Russian domestic comps.
I really enjoyed Sofia's SP! She expresses such joy in the ice.
Nastia reminded me of Pasha... she was twizzling like a madwoman. And she even landed some stuff. I like their program a lot.
Some nice moves in that M/R program, and its' nice to see them skate clean.
But is it just me or does Nastia look super skinny?
Speaking of pairs, here's Gainetdinova/Bich's SP from the competition in Moscow today:
I thought they looked good; more polished and like a pair. I really wish they didn't end with the pairs spin which isn't their strongest element.
