I honestly thought Sokolovskaya would fool as all as she posted the folklore picture one day ago.
But here he is and I kinda like it (shocker ), especially last minute, the first one is skating through it.
Waiting for the final boot pants though
Watching the second half of Petr Gumennik's skate (overall very pretty and lots of potential!) is where you start thinking to yourself, "Sergey Voronov would have rocked this!" Petr isn't quite seasoned enough to bring the voidy drama just yet but it was a nice attempt
Test Skates and finally I am back in the mood for skating
Khuda is in and she will slay! Watch it!
Loved Savosin program and costume (without the glitter ITA flag ) Glad he is back.
Mozalev! So smooth! Love him.
Kolyada I'll leave for @rfisher
Ignatov so damn handsome!
RUS pairs are insane. I really love all! Some more.
Stunning programs for B/K, and M/G - not sure for them though tbh
Galiamov is a beast
All this fuss for that? Meh.
Really like Tuk's program; wished she would have a less-distracting costume (which of course I love)
How exactly did Sofia#2 made it here? Where is Sinitsyna & Co?
Trus wins the girls battle for me.
Tat's face. Priceless.
Ilinykh/Mikhailov/Rozanov. Best minion-trio ever P/K opening is bound for MESS sooner or later this season
Did something change with death spiral levels? So many good entrances here. Loved it.
Same for some solo spins: Samarin, Mozalev, Anna S,... really nice work here.
I know everyone is going crazy over RUS test skates this weekend but since I dont really like watching unfinished products Im taking the chance to finally watch RUS nationals from last season WTH happened to Mishina & Galiamov? ohh and Danielian is just too cute.
She's the Japanese national bronze medalist but has also finished fifth at every Junior Grand Prix she has ever attended, and has managed to lose to Alison Schumacher at two straight Junior Worlds. And she's that most precious of #TTW things, a peak-at-nationals skater, getting your hopes up at just the right time to have a second half of the season and bomb there.
But he bled for his craft To Je Suis Malade no less.
He actually has the ability to make the Russian Euro/World/Olympic team. Which is going to get really crowded with Gummenk, Danielian, Moselev and Makar all trying to get that 3rd Euro spot. No idea what the numbers will be for worlds. Is it based on 2019 Worlds? That's assuming Aliev is on form since right now, it's all Kolyada.
