    Team World:
    Stephane Lambiel
    Sarah Meier
    Elena Leonova/Andrey Khvalko
    Fiona Zaldua/Dmitry Sukhanov

    Thank you once again, vivika1982. But it's "Stephane" (with an "e" at the end), not "Stephan" . "Stephan" would be the German or English version of the name, but Stephane is from the French part of Switzerland.

    Thanks for starting a thread, vivika!

    Leonova/Khvalko are not Russian? Are they representing Ukraine?

    I really think they need to change up the casts on these things... adding Lambiel is a good start.

    Leonova/Khvalko are representing USA . ITA that the change and adding more skaters is good.I did like the first version with changing the partners maybe because it was something new and unusual and the skaters did awesome job considering the short time for preparing the programs.Anyway the second one looks good too. I don't mind the remakes of old programs,loved both D/S's and my favorites were Drobiazko/Vanagas's suitcases and Slutskaya's Apres moi

    It looks like this Cup of Professionals is going to be only 4-5 episodes : short program and free program whose results are counted towards the teams, individual presentations and gala. Nice photos from the training and the tapping of the show.

    Trainings, SP,FP and etc.

    Not the best I've seen Alexei do burn my shadow. Lambiel on the other hand was great, He will do well in his professional career if he continues along these lines.

    He already does very well in his professional career - has been doing so for four years . Currently there are only a few professionals as successful as him - he regularly skates in most of the big shows in Switzerland ('Art on Ice' - that's also in Sweden and Finland now, also 'Music on Ice'), Italy ('Opera on Ice' and others), also elsewhere in Europe (Plushenko's 'Kings on Ice'), Japan ('Medalist on Ice', 'Art on Ice', 'Fantasy on Ice', 'Dreams on Ice'), Korea (Yuna's 'All That Skate') and China (Shen and Zhao's 'Artistry on Ice'). In all of those shows he is very well received, and one of the greatest stars.

    4 years already as a professional? Of course, but I still feel like he just retired. Time flies.

    Denstas still have much chemistry and Domnina is such a beautiful regal classical skater such a shame about Shabalin's knee problems.Still they seem to be earning from these shows .

    I just wanted to say thanks to those providing updates in this and the previous thread. I have to say, this isn't quite the "Russia vs. the World" version of Ice Age I was hoping for when Averbukh and Naomi Lang chatted about the concept in the last Cup of Professionals, since it's basically Russia vs. A Whole Bunch of Russians with Other Citizenship/Non-Russian Partners." Other than Lambiel and Meier, of course. It would be fabulous to have a truly international group of skaters participating in something like this. It's still certainly fun to watch though, and I always enjoy seeing some of my all-time favorite skaters. And hey, there's even a little bit of English for us non-Russian speakers. ;-)

    Thanks, Vivika, once again for all your hard work.

    The music that featured on Sarah Meier's performance was "The Prayer" by Katherine Jenkins.
