    Practices

    Reports from practices are not many right now cause a lot of skaters arrived later than scheduled due to snow and fog, so far I read Amodio was training in the afternoon, Brezina had an injury on his shoulder, no Fernandez , nor Joubert there.

    Fernandez is there already, with the rest of Team Spain.

    Seems like everyone arrived fine and safe. Just to make it clear- a lot of flights were delayed in Europe and some skaters, not Russians only, arrived later than planned. The first Russian group with ice dancers arrived earlier on Sunday with no troubles. The flight from St-Petersburg with Plu, Liza, K/S, Mishin, Gosviani, Moskvina, Urmanov arrived via Vienna as it was scheduled on Monday evening. The second fight from Moscow was unluckily stucked in Budapest due bad weather in Zagreb. But they got stucked later too when Zagreb was already accepting flights because the orginal Aeroflot flight was on superjet that wasn't fit for this type of weather . Therefore the skaters and officials had to wait for airbus that finally delivered them to Zagreb. In total their flight was about 20 hours with about 16 of them sitting in the airport (not hotel). I hope this quite tiring experience won't affect physical conditions of the skaters.

    Plu at the press conference said that his back injury is still around but not that much anymore and that he wants to defent his title again and will do his best for that: https://www.facebook.com/isufiguresk...type=1&theater

    Well, you could be right somehow:

    Piseev said to R-media that Trankov seems isolated from everyone and nobody wants to disturb him. He again said that it was entirely Max's decision to compete and the RusFed couldn't possibly insisit on his participation in such situation. Tanya looks very "feeling" for him:http://twitpic.com/bxaam0

    Anna's dress is stunning. She and Meryl Davis always have the best dresses IMO

    I was there the last time Euros were in Zagreb. The rink looks like it hasn't been refurbished at all since it was built.

    In men's loos there would be just a hole in the ground in the cabins. :P

    Plushenko at his 1st training on European Championships 2013 - he practiced parts from FS, jumps (1 quad!), spins.

    #Plushenko 3axel - he is simply AMAZING. You dont have to be a fan to appreciate him.
    #BrianJoubert short program practice. Spins only.

    Hope the roof doesn't fall in or a ceiling light fall on the ice.

    I can only imagine the fortitude it takes to compete when you have just lost a beloved father. I was a zombie when my dad, mom, and sister died. Could barely put one foot in front of the other.

    Rink looks a bit plain, ok. But if the ice is ok and the temp it will work out for everyone IMO. Who lost his father?
