It looks like it's the same Shakalov that competed for UZB.

Again a battle of the russian senior ladies, not as interesting as the juniors but still Akiko can easily win this.
I doubt that,Ksenia isn't the least in there either,akiko better be careful she doesn't make any mistakes,she's not the youngest either.
"It's still fun to skate and practicing makes me happy ."
"My goal is to do better than my ninth place in worlds 2007. It is
extra great for me, because worlds is taking place in Japan, where I have many fans."
So why not? Go Kristoffer

John Kerr's Facebook:
Not going to Finland after all this week ;-(
Sinead Kerr suffered a subluxation of the shoulder in practice and there was no way that she was going to be able to recover in time. They have also withdrawn from 'Riverdance on Ice' which they were supposed to be performing in next week. They are hopeful that if Sinead's recovery goes well they will be able to participate in Skate Canada next month.
Is there a results page?

I guess videos are killing interest in photos... though i still think each has its own uses, I hope others feel the same way

Kiira! 3T-3T! Over 60 this early already!
Now Akiko has an "e" on her flip? In 2008-09 it was her flip that got an edge call, last year it was her lutz, this year it's back to her flip? Still a decent score though, only negative GOEs on the first combo (with the flip) Her PCS is higher now though
