This may seem out of place during the current discussion but I think this belongs in this thread.

I found a photo of Totmianina and Marinin on Viewbug.com, of which I am a member. Someone posted this photo in my challenge’Skating on ice’.

I couldn’t tell who the skaters were so I asked the photographer. He said they are “Marinin and Totmianina the 2006 Olympic champions in Turin”. The photo is from their show ‘Romeo and Juliet’.

I know them of course! :) but not this show.

This poster (Sergei) has posted a great photo of Volosozhar and Trankov, skating to Masquerade waltz at the Sochi Olympics.


I discovered some great skating photos by another photographer on that board but she chose not to participate.

I found this number on YouTube for you:

Not sure the recording of the full show exists (maybe fans' bootlegs?)

Thanks so much! I found more, right after that. I believe the two combined are the complete show.

In my world, I still question whether Osmond should've been 2nd in the long and potentially overall. There's just no comparing Evgenia's jumps to that of either Alina or Kaetlyn IMO, and I don't think her PCS, as a whole, was better than them either.

I felt exactly the same watching Olympics, that Osmond- and for sure!- earned a silver. I was very surprised that Osmond got a bronze. Also, psychologically it would be much easier, better for/on Medvedeva to be third, less heartbreak for her. And more fair for everyone. Overall Osmond certainly was the best skater of all the tree of them, however Alina earned her gold. She was truly good on that day.

I have to disagree. Medvedeva and Zagitova both skated great, and deserved to be top two. I would have given the bronze to Miyahara instead of Osmond.

How did I forget to post this? I have photos of Z&G from my Viewbug photos. I believe those are from Skate America in 2018. Unfortunately the photo quality is not good.

If anyone actually scored Miyahara's jumps correctly (solely at the hands of just two of the three tech panel) and applied TES like they try to do with PCS ('skater X deserved this' comments), she wouldn't have been anywhere near the podium. I adore her skating but as a complete package, she constantly escapes ur/downgrade calls and gets decent GOE for tiny jumps as it is. Well, escaped. Not being the leader of Japanese skating anymore seems to have its costs.

6 out of 7 jump blocks that Osmond did were about as good as you're going to get - height, distance, power, landing, all of it.

And @Vash01 , you're always posting around FSU with comments such as 'Well I thought this should have been [this many] points' for the segment. Perhaps you'd like to score the stuff yourself and show us what you get? :)

Nina Mozer is returning to work/coaching. She will coach her own group, 2 senior and 1 junior teams. She is rested, misses training.

She's still standing, I guess.
