If I agreed with you, we’d both be wrong.
Knowing she should move on is one thing, but being able to may be much harder. She is not the only skater who struggles to do so. There have been quite a few examples of return to competition, even though the skaters already achieved what they could. Virtue/Moir, Yuna Kim…She's achieved everything possible in skating and could have had a wonderful post-competitive life. And she had to have known that at some point she'd have to find something to do that was not competitive skating.
In case of Yuna Kim, my impression was her desire to get olymic tickets for younger skaters and help South Korea to get the 2018 host place was a major factor in continuing her skating career.Knowing she should move on is one thing, but being able to may be much harder.

I am not sure, Liam is still with her. Recently his father posted to be looking forward to meet Amilia 2 days later after finally 2 yrs but just has seen his son. So why wasnt Amilia in the meeting with Liam- after 2 yrs? And in the pics with Amilia there was no Aljona, only Liam with his parents ....
Aljona has always been into family. In my opinion Liam looked Kind of heartbroken by far not as lucky as he used to....
What has happened to Liam Cross? Is he following her around or is he collateral damage?
Happy Birthday to Amilia Savchenko Cross. Two today.
I wonder (a) what they told her and (b) what kind of real choices she had.The unnecessary part was choosing TJ Nyman as a partner and associating with Sappenfeld.
You'd think there would be someone at Nyman's level who would think they'd have a better chance with Savchenko than the almost no chance they have now.Note: this does not excuse her from partnering with someone with those kinds of allegations against him and the coach. Just more of an explanation for how desperation could cloud her judgment.
So much drama in this thread alone I don’t mind missing housewives for two weeks. I would love to pick the brain of Alexa Knierim and see why they left her so abruptly…
And was worth returning back to the USA Coachless
I don't think they would have asked for a release if she didn't have a partner and they didn't know who the partner was.What I do not understand was that the US federation asked Germany for her release. Couldn‘t they alert her that Sappenfield was indeed under investigation? If it is true that they advised US teams to leave the camp it makes no sense to invite her in. Or do you think Aljona did not tell them where she intended to train?
But then again...Aljona would need to find a Jewish great-grandmother or something in her family tree in order to get Israeli citizenship.Maybe Krasnopolski will qualify a spot for Israel at Nebelhorn! He will have no problem dumping his current partner for Aljona.

Ask Ilia Tkachenko how well that worked out for him.
Where is that? I never found an active German Fs group on Facebook?The German Aljona-fans on fb are now telling me to stfu and stop spreading lies...although somebody else posted the article that doesn't even paint a nice picture of their goddess...the delusion is strong with these people.
Actually, that wouldn’t be a bad idea. It’s a pity it is too late for that now. Krasnopolski is an experienced skater (unlike Nyman) and he is used to changing a partner every year so that means that he must by pretty good at starting from zero and learning to synchronise jumps and other elements with someone new. I think it could have worked pretty well. Or at least, it had a better chance to succeed than finding an inexperienced partner who has never even competed at senior world championships.Krasnapolski was born in Ukraine, so that was an option.... too bad he competed at Cranberry recently and won't make the one year waiting period.
Gawd, I'm glad that tradition doesn't extend to dances I've attended. Otherwise, I'd have enough baskets to open my own Crate & Barrell.Regarding the basket: this steams from an old dance tradition. There each women/girl got a basket for a special dance game. Then two men are going up to her and she choses one to dance with and the other gets the basket.
Then two women go to the men and one gets the basket and one dances with him.
So "to get a basket" means not to be chosen to dance with the person who can decide and is used very broadly in Germany for instances when you are not chosen for something.
