I'm soooo happy for Martiusheva/Rogonov! they're one of my favourite pair, I hope they'll win medal here!
Step out and hands down on 3T by her, throw was two-footed, good triple twist, great lift, nice pair spin when she’s doing pearl position. They seemed a little slow to me today.
3 salchow – clean!, 3 twist with hands above head,3 Flip she touched the ice with one hand, nice positions in pair spin, difficult change of positions in lift, her positions are really unique. Wow, finally clean skate by this beautiful couple! They’re happy.
Huge 3loop, high 3 twist, 3toeloops – he stepped out, slow lift. Nice skate. She’s so young, only 13.
Oh, that was quite painful. Execution of the elements was really bad but you can see that they’re trying really hard. They were trying some interesting transitions before every element. She looked devasted. I feel sorry for them
I missed Petyakin/Kordiukov
3T- clean, 3 twist – great high like always, clean throw, great death spiral with nice exit, pair spin, lift with interesting entry and exit. Her posture is perfect. Great, clean skate. They’re on the way for their first national title!
3T – she messed up, crash on 3twist, nice throw 3loop, lift with one hand exit. They’re always joy to watch, even with mistakes. She’s beautiful and so expressive.
Oh, she so cute, tiny cookie! Only 12! Twist, sbs 2axels, fall on the throw, lift – she’s doing the split, pair spin looks strange – she’s sooo small. She seems to be disappointed but she did a good job!
Only 2twist, throw 3flip – she touched the ice, nice, fast sbs 3T, interesting step sequence, lift with nice entry. I love their originality, they’re trying to be different. I remember once they said that their idols were Savchenko/Szolkowy
I missed Nagalatyi/Bezmaternykh
Oh, they’re cute. Audience is clapping for them. Nice 3 twist, clean sbs 2 axels, throw 3 loop – two-footed, step sequence is fun to watch, audience clapping for them again.
Commentator said that she grew 16 cm last year! She’s still training with Nina Mozer. Clean 2 twist, they both messed up sbs jumps, clean throw jump, lift - very nice interesting position.

leave no stone unturned
Lubov ILIUSHECHKINA / Nodari MAISURADZE had an interview and she doesnt seem happy at all "(
The ladies' tights are so tiny that when they are in lift positions it's obscene. Even Kostner gets better coverage than that.
I am impressed by Davankova/Deputat. There is a girl who can actually jump and she does it consistently. They were in two or three other competitions in Russia a few weeks ago and almost all of their jumps were clean.
The couple in second place screams Russian old school pair skating at it's best. They are absolutely lovely, dear God, give her some consistent jumps!!!
Me too. And the throw and twist were huge! I hope they go to Junior Worlds, they could medal there.

Can they go to junior worlds? She is 13 and he is 19. If they can, it would be great but I wonder if the figure skating federation would send them.

B/L did good (as would be expected) as they should have no pressure in winning, with the top two teams not even being there. B/L may have landed their jumps today but tomorrow may be different. S/K performed better so hopefully she is on the mend and the free skate won't be as bad for her as the Cup of Russia. G/E need to retire, he is not good enough to carry her and with her age and skating skills-being a top pair will be difficult to reach at this stage. But they would make great pro skaters. I/M did okay but not great I hope the free will be better. M/R looked great but it's only one short program, I'm not even going to crown them as the next big thing until she at least has a season of consistency under her belt.
All in all, I really miss seeing the top two pair and can't wait until Euros.
