    Titushkina in Courshevel.

    Her problem was an overcomplicated program. She is not actually ready to 3Lz+3T (in fact 3Lz<+3T<, judges in Courchevel "did not see" underrotations very often).
    But may be it is better for future.

    Good start, not so bad as 2011 and 2010, when her results of first competitions were much lower than in other competitions of season.

    For her first competitions in season - good enough result.

    Interview Tatiana Tarasova (famous coach). Russian language.

    She tells that Pluschenko is excellent, Sotnikova and Gachinsky very-very good, Maxim Kovtun very good.

    You forgot to translate that when she saw Pluschenko skating, she cried. (My Russian language is a bit rusty, but that's what I think she said)

    Well, that's promising! I hope Plushy is able to maintain that level of skating all the way up to Worlds (and to Sochi!). If he moved Tarasova to tears, that's a skate I want to see.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nz5SEboBghQ

    Are there any clips or news about her new competitive programs for this season?

    Thanks for any information.

    Not yet. It is too early, because she will be competing in seniors and seniors season hasn't started properly yet. I think she will be competing at Nebelhorn Trophy in Sept. 26-29

    Yes, she told so. And also "He surprised me. He shook me." And "Eugene is in a tremendous form, physical form." And many other very good words.

    I remember his FS at Euro-2012. It was enough to understand that his solution to return is a good solution.
    If he will skate even better - I have no words.

    I am so looking forward to seeing Plushenko at worlds. I have seen a lot of the great russian skaters including pairs and ice dancers over the years so it will be a wonderful chance for me to see him as he doesnt perform in Canada much. Yags on the other hand was much loved in Canada and performed here many times.

    The question is, would the above named compete at Russian cup? They may have to be excused if they have Grand Prix events. But there should be soon (about in a month time) their test skates. The closed ones have already happened or are happening now, but the open ones should take place sometime in September?

    Seson 2011/12.
    Season is traditionally opened by Open Championship of Moscow (Junior, Novice), 4-7 Sept, Moscow. Results may affect on JGP events, substitutes may be main and vice versa.

    Russian Cup - qualifying competition. All events Senior, Junior, Men, Ladies, Pairs, Ice Dance. Of the results of Senior Events is National (Seniors), on the results of Junior Events is National (Joniors). Also included in Nationals of results of GP and JGP this season and ISU championships of previous season.

    Russian Cup I - 11-15 Sept, Perm.
    Russian Cup II - 02-06 Oct, Yoshkar-Ola.
    Russian Cup III - 23-27 Oct, Samara.
    Russian Cup IV - 13-17 Now, Kazan.
    Russian Cup V - 27 Now-01 Dec, Moscow (new date, 1 week ealier than planned).

    All events are in different places at first for prepare skaters to roads, hotels, unknown ice palaces, i.e. conditions in internationals.

    Best skaters, who have international events, at most take place in one event of Russian Cup, from III to V.
    GP or JGP are treated as more important events, than Russian Cup. So skater may ignore Russian Cup to prepare better to GP or JGP, while is recommended that all best skaters have at least one Russian Cup event. So no Russian Cup events may be only if they really interfere with GP(JGP) Events and Final for skater. Or in other rare cases (injury, return of skater of Pluschenko's level - he took place in Nationals without any qualifying event, anybody who has several gold medals from Worlds and Euro may do so).

    The best skaters we may first see at Senior B competitions.
    For example, Polina Shelepen plans to be at Ice Star (Minsk) 07-09 Sept.

    Thanks for the schedule!

    I hope we will see info and videos from Ice Star, too.

    I will have to add it to the Coming Attractions thread!

    And I have started a thread for Russian Qualifying Competitions in the Qualifiers folder here:

    http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/sho...ian-Qualifiers

    AlexRus, I have quoted your post from this thread there.

    From 12 to 16 Sept, at four arenas in Moscow.
    Information about time etc (if somebody wants to go), Russian language http://www.team-russia2014.ru/article/4914.html

    At last we will have real info.
    Close test skates were really close - no videos, only some words "good or not very good".
