With 3 missed comps in a row, it is perhaps just a tad suspicious?
First, she was sick. Second, he had paperwork problems but don't worry they're definitely all healthy. And now Andrei has a bad injury? Either they are having the worst beginning of a season ever, or they should have figured out one excuse and stuck to it.

IMHO they either knew or suspected she might not get the invitation for the Olympics in 2022 and training isn't worth the money spent or they know they could end up 6th or so at Nationals which would not be good. Either way, her income from winning silver in Sochi isn't enough to pay the bills without winning comps and getting invitations for shows.

They'll either quietly disappear (scenario number one) or show up at Russian test skates in the fall and try again (scenario number two).

For bizarre off ice incidents, we could put the entire Russian figure skating coaching staff on the team. All of them certainly don't have a problem speaking their minds. :lol:

ut at the same time we also have someone like Anastasia Gubanova, who has just turned 17, is clearly going through puberty, was called “lazy and fat” (by Buyanova) but who still has nice musicality and skating skills and is still able to rotate her jumps.
Thank you for sharing this. :love: Definitely her best performance and jumping of the year.

Well, how many in here are buying the Novoselov-injury-excuse? :shuffle:
What? You don't think Novoselov might have injured himself striking his leg?

After realizing that this too-good-to-be-true partnership that he left the French Fed for might well ensure he doesn't get invited to the next Olympics. Meanwhile, the top pairs spot in France is looking not so secure. And...really it hasn't been a good week for Novoselov when one analyzes it.

On the other hand, he's making an argument for the 🚂.
