Wishing I could go back to the Lake Placid JGP
[Moved my video link to a more relevant thread in the Trash Can .]
Maxim Trankov: My queue has ended long ago. My business now is to come to training and do everything possible so that Tarasova and Morozov return to their former level. If this works out, then it will be possible to easily climb on top without standing in a queue, you can do that with any queue. This queue is definitely not electronic, but a live one.
Are you impressed by the growth of the Mishina / Galliamov pair?
Maxim Trankov: I am very impressed by Alexander since junior times. This is potentially the best partner in Russia, due to many factors: stature, appearance, flexibility, strength, jumps. A partner without weaknesses, you just need to develop this pair. Moreover, age allows. Maybe not for this Olympics, but for the next one, they will become the main characters. If they work, of course. So yes, for me they are the main discovery of the season. I like to watch them develop.
Are there three contenders for gold at the Russian Nationals?
Maxim Trankov: Not three – more. Let’s skate, sensations are possible, for example Pavliuchenko / Khodykin – they have interesting elements, a good short program. Those competitions that were in Kazan – there were probably three main pairs and a real fight.
But at present he is rather accurate.Ari Zakharian has lost his mind, i thought he was trying to introduce "hollywood style commercialism" into skating; he gave an interview (in Russian) and this is the heading of it...
"In America the figure skating is in poor and sad shape. Over there they understand that russians will eat them alive at the next competition"....

Maybe, but when one of the top ice dance teams is again kept from the Olympics without a reason like the last time, you may find out that USA comes on top in ice dance... whereas in ladies they would have to keep off top two or three ladies!I would have both Russian dance teams in front of both us teams. But that is an opinion
Oh no I agree, but objectively, with the Russian machine as it is...I don't know. I remember Anna Cappellini talking about that years ago. If there is an opportunity to place the Russians ahead, they will.Only in ladies and pairs. I don’t think USA is doing too bad in men and ice dance.
Well, I only have eight, fingers that is, as well as as a short memory, so forgive the handicap.... between 2009 and 2018, Russia had two Worlds medals in ice dance. Italy also had two Worlds medals.
France had six. Guess if there is an opportunity to put the French ahead, they will. I will leave you to investigate for yourselves how many medals the US and Canada had. My fingers can only count so high, there are just ten of them. Actually, looks like ten is exactly as many as I need.
Ksenya Sinitsina is still recovering from illness and probably will not be participating in the events of this season. From various sources i gathered that she recovered from her earlier injury, started to train and then became ill (not KNW, but sounds like a bad cold or a flue, typical for Moscow weather, in my days November is when all my class mates go the grippe.... ).

What does it actually say? I can’t really make sense of the Instagram translation. What’s a ‘lifting faucet’?
Ahh. lol. That makes a lot more sense. Thanks!Google translate said: A coach is a crane, a student is a building under construction. Even when it is taller than the crane, the building needs it if it wants to become a skyscraper! With my great coach Alexei Nikolaevich Mishin
Not so adorable in that Mishin is not wearing a mask and Plush is not wearing his properly.
