Here are a little news from Mozer’s group. Previously Nina Mozer told that Volosozhar and Trankov won’t rush the beginning of new season. And according to this small comment this plan is still actual:
We won’t perform next season. Maximum we’ll start it from the Russian Nationals. – Trankov said.
We will start to prepare not earlier than in October, for a National Championship. – Mozer proved.
the sourse: rsport.ru So, almost for sure we won’t see Volosozhar / Trankov at Grand-prix. Honestly, with all respect to Olympic champions I don’t like such strategy. It’s not really sporting. If you want to continue skating, skate, from the beginning of the season. If you don’t feel ready for full commitment then don’t come back. Sounds tough? Maybe. But I really don’t like such selective approach to competitions. As for Stolbova / Klimov:
Ksenia and Fedor plan to start the season at Finlandia Trophy. – Mozer said.
the sourse: rsport.ru Of course, plans can change, but think it’s a right decision to start the season from b event. Ksenia and Fedor need to prove to the judges that they’re ready to fight, ready to show their maximum at every competition.
