    I find it strange too how K/A where fifth at Golden Spin of Zagreb and here they were forth and so close to the podium! But I can't speak of corruption since I didn't see their programs, but I would really appreciate if someone who saw their program today could tell me if they improved so much, as their scores say they did.

    If they send K/A to euros it would be simply unfair: they were behind I/K here, their only international score(on a B competition) is much lower then what I/K got on their GP! There is absolutely nothing that will justify sending K/A over I/K.

    They improved a lot, it's true, did their best today (TAT said Maxim Shabalin helped them a lot). But not THAT much of course. Their scores were so inflated!

    I want to know that too
    Some evil parts of me wants K/A at the europeans where they will fail to make it to the FD. I'm sorry, I just feel it's unfair to the other teams that worked since childhood to become good ice-dancers. I do like Jana very much, she is a lovely ice-dancer, but what I saw from them at Golden Spin, and even at the SD is simply bad.

    oh, thanks Lucky Star

    If someone know youtube video on S/B, R/T, I/K, & K/A, I would really appareciate that you inform us on this thread.

    I'd love to see myself what it is that made you so mad over scoring!

    I love their skating, especially the freedance, they have great chemistry and have such passion on the ice. Also they were supposed to get new costumes for the freedance, can somone please post a picture.

    One happy point of today besides a bright future, Yana and Fedor will get Grand Prix assignments next year!
    Um, not necessarily GP ASSIGNMENTS. They can get a host pick assignment to Cup of Russia. To be eligible to receive invitations to GP events, they have to have competed in a GP, JGP or ISU Championship event in the 2010-2011 season to get on the Seasons Best list, the main criteria for getting invites.

    There are only two slots for Worlds and three for Euros, and as they finished 4th at Nationals, they most likely will not get to go to Euros or Worlds. If the Russian federation pulls I/K from Euros or R/T from Worlds, to allow K/A to get GP assignments, that would be grossly unfair.

    Compare the hugely inflated marks K/A received at Nationals, to their REAL scores from Golden Spin, skated just a couple of weeks ago:

    145.74 53.74 92.00 K/A, Russian Nationals
    119.58 46.92 72.66 K/A, Golden Spin

    I/K's and R/T's scores are somewhat more rational.

    160.45 62.17 98.28 Riazanova/Tkachenko, Russian Nats
    146.79 60.81 85.98 Riazanova/Tkachenko, TEB


    149.72 62.30 87.42 Ilynikh/Katsalapov, Russian Nats
    134.79 49.14 85.65 Ilynikh/Katsalapov, COR

    I've watched I/K, still don't get their TES, but oh well, I'm far from being an expert. She looked so relieved when she saw they are on the podium! It took a lot of time till their scores came up. I have this feeling if they go to euros, their levels will be better...just a feeling
    I couldn't watch the entire dance of Jana and Feodor(I'm much to upset to judge it objectively) but from what I saw, I can say it looked like a pairs routine without jumps. But that's an insult to pairs! They were two individuals out there, each other minding his own businesses. I will never understand how those twizzles got a lv4
    I'll watch B/S and R/T later, I want to enjoy them and be happy for them properly

    I/K have been inconsistent htis year, but it's worth remembering he was out for 6 weeks during the summer due to a back injury, and she had a foot injury after CoR, so they haven't really been all that healthy :(

    It's a complete joke that K/A had higher levels on the footwork than I/K, were the tech specialists watching K/A skate at all? Their steps were very slow and labored.

    I didn't have a time to see this live. Lucky Star, What is wrong with Ilinykh/Katsalapov? I think B/S and R/T look more mature at this point so I can agree with the PCS. What is Khokhlova/Andreev in 4. place?

    oh my goodness, Elena/Nikita beaten in the free dance by someone who took up ice dancing at the age of 28? That sounds ridiculous although I do love Khokhlova. I hope I/K redeem themselves at Europeans.

    This, if we will see them at Euros! I wouldn't be surprised they send K/A there
