    From Russia With Love (#36) Spring into Summer 2020

    Honestly, I'm really very worried about her. I loved her and Gwendal since 1997 and followed them closely. I feel like Marina was the perfect example of an athlete, who lives only for the sport and has no idea what to do with her life after retirement. She has fallen in love with a person, who...

    The aftermath of DG's resignation - what next for the FFSG?

    Thank you very much for your reply as well. It is great to discuss with somebody with good knowledge of this sad, complicated topic :) Of course, Gwendal mentions Beyer from time to time. My impression (based on his many interviews) was his main interest was not this situation in itself, but...

    The aftermath of DG's resignation - what next for the FFSG?

    Well, of course, what I mean was not personal, unpublished stories of individual skaters. I was talking about "everybody knew it" facts, which were officially investigated, such as Beyer's case and then Gailhaguet bringing Gilles Beyer back to this executive,... You can make a strong program...

    The aftermath of DG's resignation - what next for the FFSG?

    I find it super interesting to see, how everybody is so keen to support Peizerat....I mean, I always loved Gwendal. Actually, A/P are the reason I started watching figure skating, Gwendal always seemed to me like an ideal man, but... I can't help myself, but I'm extremely disappointed by the way...

    The Dance Hall 7: Tripping the Light Fantastic 2019-2020

    Hi and thank you for your reply. But you didn't get my point (or maybe, I expressed myself not clear enough, sorry for that). There is no problem at all with you loving their free dance. Actually I like it as well, and there is nothing wrong with that. My point is, it is not what they try to...

    Imamov's interview with Savchenko

    I think it is more about everybody's perception of what "to copy somebody" means. I would formulate it this way. S/H have understood, what works well with the judges and they went for it with their music choice (instrumental modern piece, which builds and gets dramatical by the end). This also...

    The Dance Hall 7: Tripping the Light Fantastic 2019-2020

    I had no time to read all the reactions to P/C’s FD, but I guess my opinion will not be popular. Still, I feel like I have to put my 2 cents here. Honestly, I don’t know if I did a mistake or not, but I read the pre-season interview about their free program and I had high expectations…very high...

    Imamov's interview with Savchenko

    Wow, this interview really made me sad. Actually, I was always rooting for S/S and I was so excited for S/M, when they appeared on the scene. Aliona’s life seems just ideal now, she won everything, she’s famous, she’s certainly not suffering financially. Normally, I would guess she’s unhappy...

    Bids for ISU Championships 2021 & 2022; Provisional allotments in 2020/21

    Personally, I'm very upset they didn't give it to Bratislava. This is the second year in the row and I honestly can't see how could Montpellier be better, other than some internal lobby. Don't take me wrong, I actually love France and have been living there for some time, but the reality is...

    2019-2020 Programs and Choreographers

    Honestly, I had to rewatch P/C's Flamenco to really be fair to them. I did so in work, so I was watching without sound. Just try it and you might be surprised there are very few sharp and fast movements, other than typical Flamenco clapping. Deep edges, dynamic movement, and a great flow? Yes...

    2019-2020 Programs and Choreographers

    Well, it depends...I know this opinion will not be popular, but I think S/K would be capable of doing P/C's tango very well. I honestly don't know if P/C would be capable of doing S/K's and I have my doubts there. How do we know who is better if they don't do any exact same dance? Btw. I'm not...

    2019-2020 Programs and Choreographers

    This is completely true, but the best flamenco dancers are the best in FLAMENCO. I don't think you can automatically say they're best overall DANCERS. And this is my problem with P/C. They're the best in their own style and they're doing it fantastically. Are they really so good in other ice...

    Eteri Tutberidze’s message: past year, parents, skating.

    Ok, I will repeat again. It is not about Evgenia leaving, but how she left. I think she made an absolutely right choice when she decided to change coach, but I can't agree with how she handled the situation. For me, to say "thanks and goodbye" is the basis of decency. But ok, let's imagine Eteri...
