Other results about more known skaters (besides me finding it amusing that Google's translator adds the 'ov' ending even to names that don't have it, like Anna Shershak's):

Girls (Quite literally, that's what it actually translates to - just had this word in Russian class the other day), short only
Sophia Mishina in 1st with 56.80
Polina Korobeinykova in 2nd with 52.92
Maria Stavitskaya in 3rd with 51.68

Tudvaseva/Liseev in 1st, 138.19 total
Anna Yanovskaya/Sergei Mozgov in 1st, 148.14 total
Funniest Google Translate moment (which I checked after just to make sure I didn't miss any names):
One of the male pairs skaters is Igor Zakroev, and Google Translate puts it as "Will close" because it's actually a form of/related to the verb закрыть (pron. closely to zakriyt, but the vowel ы is a bit awkward to give pronunciation without actually saying it) which means "to close".

None of those names will translate as oddly into English as Ima Pigg will translate into Russian. Yes, she existed. I same the tombstone in TX.

It's just funny because Google Translate can't tell the difference between a form of a verb used as a name and one used just as a verb.
