This year Russia has another new ice dancing team. Maria Stavitskaya who represented Russia in singles teamed up with Anton Shibnev and now tries herself in ice dancing. Their coach is Alexander Zhulin. Some photo of the new duo:
Usually girls from singles switch to pairs not ice dance. So, it’ll be interesting to see how successful they can be. Of course they trains together not so many time and it will be difficult and unfair to judge them. But i hope that they have a potential. They look beautiful together! And I just want to see Maria skating, no metter where, in singles or other discipline. I wish them a lot of luck. Maybe we will see them at least at one B-competition?

The first duo from Alexander Zhulin’s group Ekaterina Bobrova and Dmitri Soloviev recently gave an interview, see what I think about it.
