    Thank you for this!! I guess THEY saw Artur's new programs too!!! SO happy to see the Fed giving him the chance he deserves. At least he won't have to throw everything onto the ice at SA, although I'm pretty sure he'll do it ANYWAY!! God, I love this crazy, beautiful sport!!

    PS> Guess I shouldn't answer posts until I've read all the way through the thread, huh??

    YAY for discovering this! And Gosviani got the Ladies TBA!!! I am a happy happy happy girl right now!!

    What was the issue with Artur last season? Was he injured?

    Have you seen him live? When and where?
    I'm wondering, because there's no vid of his new SP anywhere.

    Mishin really isn't too fond of videos during training camp...someone got away with the FP, which Artur then put on his official channel. The SP, I'm assuming, no one was able to get. I didn't record a thing....too busy just watching Jeff Buttle work his magic with Artur and Liza...good stuff.

    Pieced together from dodgy Google translations, I believe the main issue was that Artur developed flat-footedness and they were having trouble fitting his boots correctly. This led to numbness and pain in his legs after only a very short time on the ice, which impacted his training (and obviously his performance; I can't imagine trying to land a quad if you can't feel your feet). Mishin also mentioned a low immune system caused by stress (Gee, I wonder what caused that? Yes, I'm looking at you, RFSF!) and a "second adolescence" which most have taken to mean a late growth spurt (he did look a lot bigger last year - he's gone from being equal height with Plushenko to slightly taller).

    So all in all, a steamroller whammy of issues.

    Yep, Buttle did Artur's SP and Liza's LP and reportedly Artur was so taken with the SP that he's said it's not going to change at all.

    Gachinski is taller than Plushenko now? Yikes, jumping is difficult enough for the taller guys, but that's really tall for a skater.

    I've always really liked Gachinsky but you know Voronov is my guy.....and has been for a few years. I'm reading this thread and see he placed first in Perm, yet nobody says anything about him. Why is that? I thought his programs were really good, though I am no tecknik.

    I think the issue with Voronov is that he's never really done anything on the world stage, has he? His second at RN was great but what is his Worlds record? Gachinski may have failed at Worlds 2011, but Voronov didn't exactly shine either.

    Being tall is a bit disadvantage, but it didn't prevent Lysacek getting the results at worlds/Olympics.

That was an unpleasant thought to think.
    But in the recent photo with Ivan Okhlobystin https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BT5lNATIYAAtWHy.jpg Gachinski looks right as tall as him, and Okhlobystin is 180. So that's just Artur growing bigger, my heart is relieved now.

    But he is such a huge guy really - no wonder some Russian media misunderstood Mishin and wrote an article about "pair skaters Tuktamysheva and Gachinski" doing well in the test skate in Sochi

    ^True... but it isn't particularly attractive skating (Lysacek's) IMO

    Hopefully it won't be an issue for Artur.

    It does look quite dark.

    Oh my, Konstantin just posted some photos on instagram that look like he got married! But as I can't quite work out how to get into instagram on my computer to link them, I'll have to leave it to someone more tech-savvy than me.
