They have their 2nd event at Poland this week, so, I thought I will open a thread for them since it seems they don't have one. This pair is very promising and they had a very successful international debut when their won at Austria. I wonder if they can break the Russian junior record which is 168.20 skated by Tarasova/Morozov in 2014. They could do it at Poland, or at the JGPF or at the Junior Worlds at the latest.
