State of Russian ice dance drama [02.06.2017]
Finally it’s Friday! How to spend last working day? Take some wine and join me in my weekly review of Russian ice dance. Next episode starts now!
Let’s start with something positive, sweet and cute!
The main Diva of Russian ice dance Tatiana Navka and her youngest daughter Nadya
The season of figure skating’s wedding is officially started! Congratulations to Ksenia Monko and Kirill Khaliavin!
Jonathan Guerreiro is also spotted at the wedding
Victoria Sinitsina and Nikita Katsalapov have finally deserved vacations and went to Thailand
Dmitri Soloviev is also somewhere near them. Thailand is popular among Russian skaters this summer.
Dima, take another photo! We can’t see whether you’re really in great shape!
Ekaterina Bobrova and her Roman Holidays
Meanwhile the game “Find a new partner for Ilinykh” continues on many internet resources about figure skating. Let’s take a look at most frequently mentioned candidates. Unfortunately, Scott Moir, Guillaume Cizeron and Andrew Poje were too busy to attend the audition.
Yuri Vlasenko. Works with kids, but promises to compete next season. Intriguing.
Egor Bazin. Seems he and Sofia Evdokimova have returned from vacations and started preparation for the next season.
But according to many Elena’s fans these two are not successful enough) Ok. Lets take a look at two World Junior Champions – Sergei Mozgov and Pavel Drozd.
Sergei got some coaching experience working with kids in Tallinn.
Pavel – last photo from vacations
Anyway, I hope Betina and Alla won’t give up without a fight)
But it’s Russian ice dance, you never can be sure! So for not to worry about this two pairs I need to see a photo on ice after vacations or to hear some music announcement)
And……Ruslan Zhiganshin posted a video of him working in a gym:
Interesting. Very interesting) What did he want to say? That he’s not that much injured/ill and that wasn’t the main reason for their split-up?
