Olga Mikutina is off to college... at Montclair State University in New Jersey!

No more skating … or she’ll combine college & sports? Hope that she enjoys college in NJ!

If you recall Petrokina completely vanishing for a year a few seasons ago, here's the more detailed explanation as to why. Amazing that she was able to keep at it after that.

Niina mentioned in this article that she'd be at Shanghai Trophy, which is now confirmed by Shanghai media.

It's the off-season and I'm low-key bored.

Reposting from the Dance Hall -

Terrible news for Kudryavtseva/Karankevich -


They had a very bad crash in practice (he says neither team was to blame - they were doing their twizzles and the other team was skating backwards). The end result though is that Angelina has two broken bones and needs surgery on her leg, so they are out of the JGP this season. :(

News from Angelina Kudryavtseva. She had her op last night. It's great that her partner, coach, Federation and the FS community overall are so supportive :)

8 photos (and their message, copied out below) shared on Gina Zehnder/Beda Leon Sieber's team account after they won Switzerland's FIRST JGP ice dance medal -- bronze -- in Istanbul! :cheer: https://www.instagram.com/p/CxDClHtsyQ3/

ISU Junior Grand Prix Istanbul🇹🇷
We are incredibly proud and grateful for what we have achieved this weekend. Being the first ever Swiss ice dance couple to score a medal at a Junior Grand Prix, we can proudly say we played a little part in the history of @swissiceskating . Achieving this great success and making our coaches proud was truly special.
Thank you @cornelialeroy and @alisabesseghier for successfully preparing us for this event.
We are beyond excited to find out what else this season has to offer.
A special thank you to the team working around us and supporting us all along @frangipani4 @skatingsport @john.lekatis @evestampa

Now back to work and see you at our next JGP in Gdansk Poland.

Olga Mikutina is off to college... at Montclair State University in New Jersey!
Tonight (Sept. 11), Olga posted this brief video from campus: https://www.instagram.com/reel/CxElyKaNXlQ/
I officially announce that now I am a student of Montclair State University🇺🇸 It’s been 3 weeks of being in America, living independently on campus and training with a new team. All this is not easy, but I’m slowly getting used to all the new changes and I really like it:)
ETA a clip of Mikutina practicing spins with Liza Gervits (ISR) at the rink on campus: https://www.instagram.com/reel/CxDe1e2ONgc/

Young Goose Academy recently posted a video filmed by Daniel/@theicecapture of Cyprus' Angelina Kudryavtseva/Ilia Karankevich skating to Madonna's "Material Girl" from their Junior RD before her injury: https://www.instagram.com/reel/Cw931pprrt_/

ANGELINA AND ILIA
Unfortunately due to the accident last week in the Grand Prix in Linz Austria, @angelina_k21 resulted in breaking two bones in her leg and so herself and Ilia had to sadly withdraw from the Grand Prix competition. Like everyone else I was also looking forward to watching them compete.
On a good note Angelina is recovering which is amazing to hear and the team hope to be back competing later on in the season
We have filmed this section of their Rhythm Dance and will soon release sections of their free dance, let’s all wish her well! And can’t wait to see Angelina and Ilia back on the ice soon!

Mic'd Up: Alisa Agafonova with Zehnder/Sieber during their RD, plus a clip at the end of their K&C reaction after they realized they would medal. :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihfLL62AgEg

ETA that Juris Razgulajevs had an amusing quote backstage to them as they were all looking at the RD protocol/levels online.

And with another big leap to 54.30 over their Nebelhorn FD TES of 47.63, which was just shy of the Euros qualifying 48, Reitan/Majorov have passed the 52 points they need to qualify for Worlds :cheer2: :cheer2:
also lets talk about how Val/Kazimov have jumped around 20 points in 2 weeks rivalling Smart/Dieck's SB score. It will be interseting to see who gets the Euros Spot

It'll be Smart/Dieck, IMO. Spanish fed has invested too much money in them to not give it to them. Same with Worlds.

Osipova/Epstein have ended their partnership. Sounds like Nika is done and Dmitry plans to look for a new partner.

Loena's program isn't interesting to me skating-wise, but I do think she deserves huge credit for constant engagement with her upper body and the performance factor.
