Many thought so, me included. But then it was pointd out that all we saw the first time was a practice run through.

1. sky_fly20, the most innovative team currently out there is S/S. Robin's inexpressive? No, he's not. Look at his sense of impish play in Pink Panther. Look at how he conveys such powerful sadness in Pina during the spiral sequence. No, he's not over the top emo dramatic like V/T, but they certainly express themselves very well. And they actually have wall-to-wall choreography in their programs. I can understand being detached from their programs, mainly because they are so innovative (and why we see the same warhorses over and over again as opposed to genuine inspiration), though.
2. That stated, I do think V/T's programs do take a page from S/S/S' books, particular the long. The extended exits from the lifts. Attempting to do footwork before the triple twist (attempting at this point). More transitions (not at S/S' level, by any means, but they no longer should be scoring two or three points less there). The even if it's sparse, the SP is certainly quite hot. I'll withold judgement of the LP until it's done more cleanly, but even now I'd argue that these two programs are better than anything they've done before, but would probably rank outside S/S' top five. Also, have V/T's skating skills improved? Because they looked better in that department than I've seen before.
3. Stolbova/Klimov are, however, the Russian team doing some fantastic choreographic work. Love them, and they've improved over the off season. I really hope they can pip B/L for the third spot.

[QUOTE=deedee1;660181]Oops! What I wanted to say was...
"When was the last time Evgeni went for 4S in the actual program? In recent years, he went for either two 4T or just one 4T, right?"
My English is this bad! You see? Sorry.
I don't remember 4S from Plushy, at least not since 1998... Maybe he practiced it over the years, but it wasn't stable so they chose not to try it in competition but, now, they realized that "just" the 4T is not enough! I didn't like V/T, artistically nor technically, their elements are really not ready, with this kind of shape they would be surely behind S/S! The program... the music is good, but I think it doesn't suit them really well, they maybe wanted to try something different, we'll see what they can do with it! And, my English is as bad as yours!

Glad to read that! It's as always nice to read your posts

Tarasova did the SP, as far as I know. And somewhere someone said the FS was done by someone else - but without any source, so I guess we just don't know by now.

Tarasova wouldn't choreograph something for Adelina that it's not classical Just look at Adelina-TAT's programs: Strauss waltzes-introduction and rondo capriccioso-bolero-liebestraume-spanish capriccio... And then burlesque?! Almost Impossible!

Did Tarasova still choreograph Adelinas Burlesque Ex she skated at the Ice?

Does anybody know what the current situation is with Julia Lipnitskaya? Hope she has not been injured.
09-16-2012, 02:50 PM
I think, she is injured.

I've read that Plushi said he disliked a program Myamoto made.

She is scheduled to make her season debut at the Finlandia Trophy in early October, so hope she recovers in time. What type of injury problem has she had?

Isn't it the same music kanako murakami had last season for sp? Loved the lifts anyway

Yes it is, it's really a beautiful piece, I hope it'll become more popular within the next seasons...
