Here's a short video of some of the waltzing.

Is that Trusova in the light blue pantsuit? Who is the taller woman with long blonde hair in the black pantsuit?

Who is the woman on the far left with the black hair in the black dress with white blousy sleeves? Is that Marie France and Romain perhaps? I thought at first it was Krylova before I realized she had no teams I could think of at Euros.

I don’t think those were skaters/coaches, maybe the instructors.
Also, Krylova had Gallyavieva/Thauron and Mueller/Dieck at this Euros.

So my impression of the interview (based on facial expressions alone, hah hah hah) is that Nikita is a bit arrogant (I got a strong know it all vibe) and didn't like the Bukin mention. Am I totally off? Projecting? Or hit the nail on the head?

I thought he seemed a little uncomfortable, that's all, but I would personally be very uncomfortable in that kind of talk show environment so maybe I was projecting. I thought the whole thing would be cringe-worthy not because of the skaters but because I'm not a big fan of talk shows, but it was actually really cute. It's hard to go wrong combining figure skaters and llamas. I was wondering why Boikova wasn't talking more and then she did, and her voice sounded really hoarse! If as fans we are exhausted after the intense marathon of skating recently, the skaters must be even more tired! But I suppose the ones at Europeans were probably not watching US Nationals at the same time so maybe in a way they actually had it easier :).

Dead square in the center, but hey I could be off. OTOH, I really liked the pairs team, and my baby Kostornaia.

I have a lot going on at work in February, nonetheless... I just googled "what time is it in Saransk" for the first (but not last) time this week.

Activate the alternate clock on your computer and choose the right time zone - GMT +3 - and that make things a little easier for you.

Olympic champion Maxim Trankov talks with coach Marina Zoueva about working with pair Evgenia Tarasova and Vladimir Morozov. It also shows for the first time in detail how training is held in Florida.

Why in Russian figure skating there is no single of the level of Nathan Chen? What is the reason for the success of the couple Gabriela Papadakis/Guillaume Cizeron? Why did the legendary Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir lose in Sochi? The answers to these and other questions are in the first issue of Maxim Trankov’s vlog on Channel One.

The interview is in Russian but Max is hinting on Instagram that he's thinking of an English version.

Re-Post from Bavarian Open.
Can someone help with the new music?
Anastasiia MISHINA / Alexsandr GALLIAMOV

Ehm, this were the 'Je suis malade' costumes but some totally new program.
Sounded like a horror movie soundtrack. With screams in between.
I totally disliked the music. Not sure what to think of the program. Is this for next season already? :huh:

This is a very interesting article with Vitaly Moskalenko, a physical fitness trainer for Mozer's group, among others. He talks a lot about training methods and best practices, injury prevention, etc.

The most :eek: part of the interview is a note that Natalia Zabiyako can hold a plank position for 45 minutes

Depends on what else you do during the 45 minutes! If you have someone to turn the pages, you could read a great book!

That’s incredible! She’s truly a little superwoman!

I know she likes to draw, so maybe she holds the plank with one hand and sketches with the other!
