    Elena Ilinykh & Ruslan Zhiganshin

    Looking forward to seeing what this pair has to offer, based on the news I've heard about them so far. They're doing extraordinarily well, considering the circumstances. Here's wishing Elena and Ruslan good luck from now on! Goodness knows they've coped with enough drama to last them for years.

    OrdinaryDreamer Ditto, ditto! If they last past this "trial period" or whatever it is that they're in the midst of now with the Russian Fed, then I am hoping that they become a powerhouse. I really enjoy watching Elena skate....But I don't know as much about Ruslan.... So, I am hoping that he has good basic skills, good technicality and precision, emotes, works hard, and tries to work well with Elena. In addition, I hope Elena can trust him as a partner, continues to work on her consistency, will work hard, and hopefully will work well with Ruslan.

    I'm more a fan of Ruslan than Elena and I can't say I like this couple without watching any performance yet. I wish the best for them since they're two young and talented skaters and I hope they'll light my fire on as soon as I see the result of their work

    They're not a couple yet, but you're right. Ruslan will never get level 4 on any element and positive GoE's with his look.

    If he can change his hair style, he can look even better.

    I agree! I think they look pretty well paired (from the amount you can get from a photo, granted). And it looks like they're getting along in those pictures, so I hope that they really are!

    They're cute! If he's celebrating her birthday with her, then I'm going to wager that they are indeed getting along well (at the moment); and I hope it continues! I know I already said it, but I really do think that they are such cuties!!

    EDIT: Honestly, Ruslan is just too adorable! And Lena is of course very pretty.

    For a dweeby looking guy, Ruslan seems to have impressive luck with women. Getting Sinitsina and Ilinykh as partners and apparently dating Stepanova at one point (although a long time ago...)
