http://fsrussia.ru/upl/ckeditor/35120.pdf I believe the official announcement of World Team is delayed due Gorshkov's being ill and also due to the unclear situation in Pairs. The rumors that were flying around that BazLar left their coach and now is temporary training in Novogorsk with Kudryavtsev seem like turned out to be true. So, no idea if they will go or S/K.
Do you people seriously belive that Menshov wants to go to Worlds? Come on! No way. His team and he were saying in each interview before Tver, during and after that Kovtun is a set deal. Why on earth Menshov would want such a responsibility as getting two spots for Russian in London? I am sure he would be more than happy to end up in WTT in Tokyo (where I will give him roses, in person ) than to go to Canada and deal with the hell of crap. Objectively Kovtun has more chances to finish in top 10 than Menshov. He has a killer quad combo, rather reliable jumps, he is more beautiful on the ice and has some sort of charisma. His main leverage is intellectually he is charmingly dumb, and being mentally strong is what required in the situation like that. He needs to skate clean and no doubt judges will put him in top 10 because everybody knows what it's all about- to give Russia two spots in Sochi.
