I can’t say that Yanovskaya / Mozgov’s split up was a shocking news. There were rumors that Sergei had a try out with Betina already in winter. Both Yanovskaya / Mozgov and Popova / Vlasenko had a disappointing results past season. It was obvious that changes are needed. Of course new partners it’s pretty radical change) What to expect from a new pair? Honestly, I don’t think we can expect something from them this season. They need a lot of work and time. At least we can say it’ll be a very expressive pair)) But they’re young and if they needed some changes it was a right time. I can only wish them luck, and luck to their former partners Anna and Yuri to find new partners as soon as possible. They’re both good skates and it’ll be a pity to lose them.
