I am bored with mirror skating. In most cases there's not much artistry. I miss the old style unison a la Rodnina/Zaitsev, in particular, step & jump sequences combining double/single jumps with steps in between. Pairs were doing it in G/G era too. I enjoyed watching the unison and energy generated by the two skaters. These days some pairs even attempt 3 Lz and 3x2x2 in LP (something even Mao finds difficult to accomplish). But I don't get any esthetic pleasure seeing it.

I just rewatched the SP and Dmitriev is one of Martiusheva/Rogonov's coaches , he looks very different barely recognized him
