Trying to appease the skategods
How so many of the teenagers manage to come across as thoughtful and mature when the adults act like this is beyond me!
Trusova won the free skate and climbed from 12th to 3rd. B&K dropped from 1st in the SP to 5th in the LP. They were lucky to get the bronze.Russian media mentions all the gold medalists and all the ladies got personal congrats from the president. Why not Boikova/Kozlovski? How is Trusova's bronze different from theirs?
Love Vera! What is she doing there?Look whose coaching in the middle of nowhere (Anadyr, Chukotka)
So remote that food prices are more expensive and its closer to Alaska
Official confirmation: Saint-Petersburg will host 2021/22 Russian Nationals. The dates are Dec, 21-26
First? I thought she already did one last year (or was it two years ago)? At the end there was a jumping contest, where all the quads and 3A were shown...Tutberidze's first "Champions on Ice" tour show took place in Kazan today (also with Sinitsina/Katsalapov, Tarasova/Morozov, Makar Ignatov, Davis/Smolkin):
Yay!! Not Russian, but I’ve seen some Instagram stories of a few of the US skaters getting vaccinated as well.Tamara Moskvina says that all her skaters, including herself, have been vaccinated
Haven’t had time yet, plan to watch today/tomorrow
Watching nowLong video interview with Sinitsina/Katsalapov
Yes, Nikita says he loved the first suit and he judges all the people who were against it. But they were asked to change it (by Russian Fed/judges I assume) few days before Euros, so he had to bought the turtleneck in the clothing store, they took few pics, sent it to Federation, everyone liked it, so he had to skate in it at Euros.spoiler alert: if I grasped it correctly, a discussion of the infamous lucky turtleneck is yet to come...
Vika says that she came to an understanding that she has 100% caught up Nikita by 2018/19 season. The interviewer later asked Nikita in a playful manner by when did Vika best him
I lost the connection between questions and answers for a bit, but Nikita really loved that Rachmaninov FD they didn't have a chance to skate to its full potential.
It looks like Zhulin has better luck with the rhythm dances - he brought both tango music and Singing in the rain.
The interviewer asked then if they remember the ending pose of V/M Mahler's FD and what words did Scott say there
Nikita: I love you?
I really felt this. Without the audience, they really projected their emotions to each other. There was that lovely moment when they stop in front of the judges and look at each other. It felt really genuine from both. I feel like he's calmed down a lot, in his skating, and his personality, and she is just lovely.So he later asked whenever they guys had a moment like this any time in their careers when they wanted to say something to each other during the program. It's very unusual for Vika and at this year's Worlds she said some secret similar words to Nikita right before the step sequence, and he was very surprised because she never does it. And she adds that she was just enjoying it so ,much, so she wanted to share her feelings.
