But before the 2014 Olympic Games, a lot of other competitions will come. The dancers both love competing and traveling to competitions all over the world and they can't wait to meet Olympic Champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir and Olympic silver medalists Meryl Davis and Charlie White. Elena Ilinykh actually knows these two teams quite well as she has trained in Marina Zueva's and Igor Shpilband's group for about two years.
"I adore them. They are great - as athletes as well as as people," she pointed out. Ilinykh spent her time in Shpilband's camp alone without Katsalapov as the two had separated at this time.
