    Anna Ovcharova

    As you should all know by now, I am a massive fan of Anna Ovcharova.

    I have actually been thinking about creating a Fan Fest for her for about a year or so. But I kept deciding not to, in case it turned out too gushing and fanboy-ish! (A very real danger where she is concerned! )

    And then she announced her retirement (see this post onwards), so I thought "there's not really much point now".

    But, when Doris and Mrs. P started the Summer Fan Fest update, I liked the model they were using so much that I decided to go ahead with the Fan Fest.

    Admittedly, I have made a few small tweaks to the model. Nothing major, though. Just wee things that were designed to help me sort everything out, and which I decided to keep in for the final post.

    This is as much information as I can find. If you know of any more, feel free to post it below. It will be very gratefully received!

    Summary

    Anna Ovcharova was born in Moscow in March 1996.

    Anna had a successful Junior career representing Russia, finishing 5th in both the Junior GP Final and Junior Worlds in 2010. But then she had problems with her leg which forced her to sit out the 2010/11 season.

    She made her comeback in the 2011/12 season. Shortly afterwards, her brother got a place at a private school in Switzerland. After a period of attempting to split their lives between the 2 countries, the family eventually all moved to Switzerland.

    Anna started working with Peter Grueter in Geneva, and started to skate for Switzerland.

    After finishing second in the Swiss Championships in her first attempt in the 2012/13 season, she won it the following year. This earned Anna her first appearance at Senior Worlds in 2014, where she quickly became a fan favourite!

    In the 2014/15 season, Anna finally made her Senior Grand Prix debut, but did not do as well as her fans hoped. She also lost her title of Swiss Champion to an American-born girl, who was then selected to represent Switzerland at Europeans and Worlds.

    Towards the end of the season, Anna revealed that she was retiring from skating and moving back to Russia. (Her family had already moved back a few months earlier).

    Awww!!! Thank you daphenaxa!!!

    But, Doris also deserves a lot of the thanks. After all, it was her Misha thread that gave me the inspiration to finally do this.

    She is, isn't she!

    It's a real shame the way her career ended prematurely, due to events beyond her control. (Politicians have a lot to answer for!)

    But, I wish Anna all the best with whatever the future holds for her.

    Guess who's back!!!

    Well, me for starters! I arrived back from my holidays about 2 hours ago.

    But, more importantly, Anna is back!!!

    Anna sent me a message yesterday to ask if I could let you all know that she is entering a new phase of her skating career. She is now back home in Moscow and has started working as a choreographer for children. As she put it, "it's so much fun and I put all my love towards skating in them"

    It is so good to see Anna continuing her involvement in skating. It would have been such a loss if she had left the sport completely.

    I wish Anna all the best for this new direction, and hope it will not be long before we see some of her routines apprearing at Russian Nationals... and on the international stage.

    I loved Anna's radiant joy in her performances. Hopefully we'll see that transferred to other skaters as she enters the world of choreography.
