I posted in another thread that Boikova reminds me a bit of Meagan Duhamel. Not in body structure, performance, cohesiveness with partner, etc, but in the fact that she regularly has smiles or expressions on her face that have absolutely nothing to do with the music or program.Boikova/Kozlovski- no matter how hard I try to push my imagination, Boikova just is not swan, and them doing ballet, they are not polished enough for that. Their FS - the program could be anything. Not related to music at all. If you switch off the music, you wouldn’t know what they are supposed to be skating. On the positive note, they could have kept the program and keep changing music for every competition, the program would fit into anything.(didn’t Tuktamysheva did that one season, using a program but changing the music?)
THIS!! Is Nathan Chen still coming to this? I hope not!!!I will not be watching this Putin propaganda event. It was fun last year but the thought of it this year just makes me ill.
I do feel bad for any skater that might disagree with what’s going on, yet still has to go to this and act all happy. I would definitely have an old injury that has flared up and be unable to attend.
They haven’t before when a country didn’t show up for some reason.Wouldn't the ISU make some kind of exception?

The IOC always rolls over for Russia. I have low expectations for the ISU on this, tbh.For the ROC? No.
I wondered the same about junior worlds re the JGP (and junior worlds 2023)So, here's a question that just occurred to me...
If Russian skaters are unable to participate in Worlds (say France does refuse new visas and rescind existing visas), does this re-set them back to just 1 entry per discipline for Worlds 2023?
