So this weekend is the first world cup of the season.. already some world records broken by the Canadians and Russians. In addition the British team broke some of their records although doesn't look like any of them actually qualified for any finals. What I have noticed though is how much the Russian teams have improved.. they must be putting money into their program in preparation for Sochi as this is the strongest field I have seen from them in 10 years. My daughter has competed with a lot of the skater there and you can see that already the programs are getting geared up for Sochi.. Hopefully some more records will be broken tomorrow.. next weekend it moves on to Montreal for the 2nd world cup.. I was very torn between going there or Skate Canada.. figure skating won out.. The skating continues on CBC tomorrow night at 11.30pm - also online too..
