State of Russian ice dance drama [13.10.2017]
It’s Friday. It’s a pretty cold Friday in October (well, for me), so take your cup of coffee add some cognac (because it’s ice dance) and let’s see what happened in Russian ice dance this week.
Let’s start with the queen of Russian ice dance. Tatiana is in amazing shape!
She prepares for her show “Ruslan and Lyudmila”:
Yeah that’s Peter Tchernyshev)
Vasilisa Davankova and Nikolai Morozov celebrated their first anniversary
Ok let’s get back to real skating)
Ekaterina Bobrova invites us Rostelecom Cup!
Meanwhile Dmitri Soloviev went to sauna)
Finally Stepanova-Bukin showed up! Are we stunned by their dances?) Oh yes…..I’m still stunned))) Not sure whether in a positive way.
This week they also attended the opening of boutique of Russian fashion designer Valentin Yudashkin.
Should we expect a fashion collaboration?)
Betina Popova and Sergei Mozgov this week competed at Finlandia Trophy. And they also got spot at Rostelecom Cup.
Not really clear what happened with Sofia Evdokimova and Egor Bazin that they withdrew from Rostelecom. Hope everything ok and it’s not matter of health.
But the main drama of the week was Ruslan Zhiganshin’s CV. It seems what can be so provocative in CV that figure skating forums and other resources were discussing this the whole week? He didn’t write anything that isn’t true. He just didn’t mention Elena Ilinykh….at all…and all the medals and titles he won with her) So, yes the drama was guaranteed. After a couple of days of drama Ruslan posted a rebuttal that the CV was made by recruiting agency not him. They just listed the info they found on resources that Ruslan gave them as info sources.
