    Alexandra Stepanova & Ivan Bukin

    I really enjoy their FD this season and have a feeling that this team is going to achieve much more things in future.

    FD at Russian Nationals: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxDPAHLNYMo

    Their reaction after seeing the scores was amazing!!

    I've liked them for a while now, and thanks for starting the thread. I think they are very promising and I look forward to them improving.
    And on a non-skating note: They are simply gorgeous.

    Agree! I saw them in person during JGP Bosphorus Cup 2012 and they were like Hollywood stars fascinating people around their way when they walk!!

    I had no idea who they were before this season, but they really caught my eye during Skate America: the sit twizzles, the million-position lifts, and her oh-so-diva hands at the end of the SD. Tanith Belbin (or was it Carol Lane? My memory... ) said that in every lift, twizzle, and combination spin, this team is always adding some form of innovation. They've received some flak for their SS and TAT's overhype, but I really appreciate how different they try to be.

    Their FD took a while to click with me, but I suddenly "got it" at Nationals. And they were, of course, very cute in the K&C.

    Welcome S/B!!!!!! You are one of my favorites team. You reminded me of the old great Russian ice dancers.

    Congratulations to Alexandra and Ivan. Definitely not a result I would've foreseen.

    so decided to search something new going into WC & found the interview with Sasha where she says nothing significant but for the bumping of the thread of the couple I like it will do

    She says that the changes in the program are minimal
    After the successful result of the Euros it pushed them to work more & be better. Now they dont go back to these memories & ready for more. The training & preparation for WC goes steady & surprisingly without any pressure & no difference from the preparation to any other comp.


    Good luck my loves!

    so now as I feel that after Worlds it became so fashionable to hate on them I feel like I need to support them 10 fold now
    I cant make TAT or other people in their so called 'team' (how can those people call it 'support' of S/B is beyond me) shut up, mind their own business & stop taking **** about other teams but what can I do

    Combining with the pretty meh result at worlds I still kinda hopeful that next season they will be somewhat successful even if they potentially can move down to #4-5 in the team

    Sasha said that the fail @ worlds can be stimulating for them. The medals at Euros gave them false sense of security.

    Vanya calls the season successful even with all the fails & losses. Sasha is sad because they failed the team in SD.

    Rubleva too says that they looked very nervous & that the Euro result (& *cough cough* overhype) took its tall on them in SD while in FD they didnt feel the pressure.


    Looked like movie stars at the Worlds Banquet

    Don' t forget, skating is in Ivan's blood cause he is Andrei Bukin's son joined with Bestemianova were one of the greatest ice dancers in the history.
