    I think it was even longer than one minute.

    I've just looked at my reports from that GP season and here is my first impression:

    'Horrific program construction. First jump planted at on one end of the rink. Then she skates to the other end to plant two jumps and a spin there. Next an extremely long straight line step sequence, followed by two spins executed in the middle of the rink. And that's it. Awful element layout, hardly any ice coverage. She should get destroyed on the CH mark (if the judges actually cared about things like this). And Morozov needs to be run over by a truck.'

    Yes, she was very perky and sold the program well but I've seen pre-novice skaters at small local Polish competitions with better choreographed programs.

    I guess the judges won't be opening their eyes this time either.
    I wouldn't worry. I don't think she has much chance to be sent to Europeans/Worlds/Olympics this season anyway.

    If you call that a step sequence - yes

    I'll be surprised if she even makes the podium at nationals.
    My job requires me to be a juggler, but that does not mean that I enjoy working with clowns.

    She will definitely not make podium at nationals. I can't see her beating Lipnitskaya, Radionova, Sotnikova and Medvedeva. (I would say and Tuktamysheva, but Liza has not been that great this season, so if she messes up her SP quite badly at nationals, Leonova could potentially beat her). But considering Leonova's poor results last year, she won't be given the benefit of doubts (held up on PCS to make up for lack of jumps) this year at nationals.

    That pirate program won the SP at Worlds, but of course Alena is going to say "FSU doesn't like it, so scratch that." I'm glad she's going to back to her strength which is character driven programs. I like the idea of reviving the witch program too. Hoping it will give her some confidence. I don't think she'll make the team either, but technically she is the most decorated Russian lady at the senior level right now, so she needs to feel that she can do it and give it her best shot.

    Alena can do whatever she wants and she feels comfortable with. The judges should know better, though.

    I'd managed to block that from my memory until you reminded me.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    I have a question. Do you think this lift is illegal because she is sitting on his shoulders just a moment. (.52) I love this lift from I/K. I hope its OK.

    I can't see a reason why it should be illegal. Last season Virtue-Moir has a lift where Virtue had one thigh on Moir's shoulder, her other thigh on his other shoulder and her private parts just in front of his face and that wasn't illegal (she has sitting on his shoulders).

    Lift looks great to me. It's not like they did a split with her upside down and then held the position -- which is what got the Germans (I think) a deduction. I like it -- not that it means anything to the judges.
    Crazy about sports!

    I don't think it is because she is fully supported by his hands while sitting there.

    So there's no penalty for doing competitions at the same time you withdrew from a GP, like there is when you withdraw and do a show?

    Thanks! Great interview.

    Both girls come across as very likable. Elena in particular seems very level-headed.
