Russian test skates 2016, day 1st, men’s short program.
Strange and ambiguous music seems to be a trend of Goncharenko’s group. Physical shape doesn’t look promising(
Gordei continues to try quadruple loop…..unfortunately, big underrotation.
Oh….I’m got bored starting with Adagio……..
Quad still isn’t there, but at least I hear some not a warhorse music and some nice choreography. If I’m not mistaken, this program is choreographed by Misha Ge.
Mikhail is keeping his last season’s program. Rumour has it, that it was a recommendation from the Russian figure skating federation. Sadly, I think Misha grew out of this program. According to a jump layout he’s going to try a quad salchow this season. Hmm two quads in a short program….As for me it’s too risky, especially with a newly learned jump.
And the biggest surprise of the first day Maxim Kovtun
Two quads and triple axel, interesting program. This time ironic style suits him a lot. I don’t know what Inna Goncharenko did with Max, but I think everyone was surprised to see such Kovtun!
