Don’t speak Russian but he has two promising junior teams in Atakhanova/Volodin and Kvartalova/Sviatchenko, so I’m interested in seeing how he develops as a coach.
He talks about his junior teams as well. I read the interview in Google translate.

1) Sotnikova is getting over her “bad streak”. https://www.sports.ru/figure-skating/1066061697.html

Says she wants to concentrate on business she and her mother started, to make lots of money so she can have everything. She used to save her money for a big wedding (when she marries someday), but now she wants to be strong and independent.

“You can only rely on yourself, and not on a husband, or father, or friends. People are here today but gone tomorrow. I am now motivated to work so that I deny nothing to myself that I want”.

2) Kolyada's quad: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9MHk-ULo3c
looks like Rafik did a good job... :D

What is Sotnikova's business?

I hope Krylova over is ok. The google translate made it sound pretty serious.

It's "church", justice of the peace/official marriage certificate/few days later official reception. They made it "official/formal" instead of "cohabitation partners".


https://www.fsrussia.ru/news/3807-anzhelika-krylova-vse-normalno.html
It was a relatively minor (no injury) collision, on Monday, a route-bus hit her car. Krylova and others involved all went home that evening and did not want to go to the hospital. But next day on Tuesday at the end of the day, when she was done with her coaching practices, she decided to check with the doctor, because her head and neck were sore and she did not feel well.

The doctors did a complete exam/check-up, and found nothing wrong. Nothing is broken or punctured, just bang/hit/impact on the head. Doctors wanted to keep her at the hospital for few days under observation, but Krylova said she is not planning to stay that long, because she must continue her work/projects (before test skates, supposedly).

not quite as you put it:
https://www.sports.ru/figure-skating/1065942921.html in a nut-shell (from this article, and 2 previous ones during last 4-5 months on the same subject which were not posted on FSU).
- Plushenko's school is expensive, most schools like his are expensive with hidden costs, but only Plushenko honestly states the total costs.
- Plushenko's school is pretty much ran like a play-ground for celebrities' kids. It's easy going.
- There is no "competitive results" discipline, if a kid does not want to do or learn something, coaches lets him/her.
- For those who are seeking athletic results, his school is too "soft". It is very nice for recreation, but it is a VERY expensive "recreation skating".
- In the above article, the specific speaker said: (since we want results) the school is a waist of time (not strict enough, no discipline). We took Varya to Sambo-70 (where med/zag trained), it has strict discipline.
- Father speaking: "I remember my training when i was my daughter's age. We handled/learned all the curse words, we had bruises on our butts (from bumping/scraping each other with hockey sticks during practice). But you were required to train (coaches demanded from you). So, when coaches scold, Varya takes it, and next days comes to train again. She likes it. And as long as she likes it, she'll keep training. Perhaps she can make it".
That is not how Lala translates it ....And the mat knew everything, and the ass was red from hitting with a stick.

Sometimes google translate comes up with some funny stuff, like in this section on Trusova's test skate: "Trusova showed a fourth lutz, a cascade of a quadruple sheepskin coat and a triple sheepskin coat, as well as a quadruple sheepskin coat. In addition to these jumps, the skater also performed a complex cascade of triple lutz and triple rytberger."

"Mat" is "cussing"..... "butt red from hitting with a stick" is "google's incorrectness" plus "grammatically incorrect figurative phrases".
Я же помню себя в возрасте Вари. И мат весь узнал, и задница красная была от ударов клюшкой.
- I remember myself at Varya's age. ( and that's when) I learned "mat" (dictionary/collection of cuss words), and butt was red from hits/encounters with hockey sticks (he is a hockey player, and is talking about roughness of hockey practices, not getting hit with a hockey stick..... :D)

.... in other words "in russian" this is what he is saying: we all cussed and had rough practices and nobody died... :lol:

Oh does it mean she is no longer skating? Bummer.
She did not announce retirement. End of August skaters will have to announce their plans for the season.
She has been and will be skating in shows. People do see her at the rink. Sometimes she stops by the rink casually, perhaps on the way to some event, and suddenly puts on skates and dances.... https://www.instagram.com/p/Bf0z1_iFiAL/?hl=en&tagged=asotka14

lately she is posting vids from some dance classes (not skating related at all).

For my taste they’re not so good !!
I agree... I mean I like some aspects such as her diva attitude and dynamism, and deep edges, but it didn't look to mix up very well as a couple last season. Anyway, Tarasova praised them a lot last season and I expect her to do the same this season too.

Zagitova got another commercial in Japan. It's a 3-version advert, short, medium, long.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=283&v=JxeVFvSgvaI

"Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica Gaiden: Magia Record".
Explanation of the video given: The video is dedicated to the game for Android and iOS devices "Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica Gaiden: Magia Record", which turns on August 22nd for 1 year. The costume on Alina is made in the style of the character Kaname Madoka, and the image conveys the image of a girl who, through pain and suffering, turns into a magical girl.

That was an incomprehensible story. She tavelled in Bulgaria to the summer camp. https://www.instagram.com/p/BlYhDZUlmbt/?taken-by=adelina_sotnikova14 She trained with the other skaters for 2-3 days https://www.instagram.com/p/Blj4HEvl_cP/?taken-by=angelsofplushenko but after that she posted some depressive messages on her IG insta story ( after she denied it those weren't depressive), the other little skaters comforted her and everybody thought she is injured again. She went back to Moscow.

https://www.instagram.com/p/Blj4HEvl_cP/?taken-by=angelsofplushenko

https://www.instagram.com/p/BmNZ43zlm9k/?taken-by=angelsofplushenko I believe Plush was kidding with her in this video about her SP and FP

according to her insta story she is one ice again https://www.instagram.com/stories/highlights/17940861397021645/

And no one cleared what happened then.

It certainly did present a different picture, although after the correction I was a little confused as to how kids get hit on the ass with a hockey stick in practice. In hockey you are after the puck which is in front of you so you are bent forwards slightly so if you fall or are tripped you would fall on your face...not backwards. If someone plays dirty with sticks it would be the knees and ankles that get it. Or private places from elbows. However I never trained in hockey so what would I know.

So, you're a Canadian, and you did not know that Hockey is rough, and thought only evil Russians get beat up in practices.. Well, Canadians smash each others' brains into blood.... :D

Zagitova's adverts all over Japan.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=12&v=guFOAvNT8TU

New in Japan "Masaru" Rice Dish.... :lol: https://instagram.fhen1-1.fna.fbcdn...9021_2214624388757645_25934210829123584_n.jpg

Rogonov is said to be injured, but no official news.
He did give a recent interview explaining his end of partnership with Kristina Astakhova, that finances was the main reason, simply was not enough to live one, as well as lack of better results, and a touch schedule.

^^ I agree. That 3 sal combination was awesome. I like Panfilova/Rylov more though. :)
Me too. Panfilova has a very nice posture, lines and there is something that makes me want to watch her. And Rylov is a very strong partner.
