    Thanks!
    Official, right? Very strong team, unlike last year. Russia can aim for the gold this time, I think.
    Bolded skaters are the oens to get to see live for my husband and me for the first time.
    My hubby is jumping up and down for Liza! And I am sure I will be cheering for Konstantin like hell.

    you never know, Julia's vk page hasn't been active for many days that mean's she's back on the ice, who is known too abstain networking sites when training
    that list could still change, I have doubts on Liza competing where Mishin will have the final say

    You don't know that. V/M could possibly win. The twizzle mistakes in the SD at Worlds cost them
    going into the FD they had a lot of points to make up.

    I thought their FD at Worlds was amazing and the best they skated that program all season. I admit I was not a fan of their
    Carmen but the way they skated and expressed the program at Worlds was a piece of art. I would never count out V/M.

    Gorshkov said Team Russia for WTT is not settled yet. The official announcement will be on Friday. It might be the same list though I guess.

    You should really pay attention to what she produced on the ice lately. She didn't fall and only singled a jump at her last 2 competitions (Europeans and Worlds). I know she had many other technical issues but that doesn't make her a headcase. She stayed on her feet and attacked her programs pretty well. She is Russia's best lady skater at this point also, this including your beloved Julia

    All this pushing of kovtun and assignments for kovtun makes me think everyone in the Russian federation knows plushenko is not going to go or compete and the person will be kovtun. That's why he's getting all these assignments for no reason whatsoever.

    Sotnikova did have major issues - ur on 3t's and lack of 3 jump combo after messing up again on her worst jump the flip that she choked on.

    Yes, but that doesn't qualify her as a headcase. She didn't bomb. She did well for a debut, that's what I am saying. Her flip is not her worst jump, her lutz is, IMO

    her Flip is her nemesis, she has singled almost of all of it or has lost combos with it
    this list is not yet final, so Julia could still still have a chance

    I wonder if Moir would still hate this event if they had beaten D/W the last time. I'm sure he wouldn't want that to happen again this year.

    This event is fun, relatively laid back, and the prize money is good... It's hard to hate it, even if it may be somewhat fatiguing for the skaters coming off the high of Worlds.

    She cant do a lutz without an edge call but the flip is something she really can't do! Singles or falls or stepouts. You tell her to do a flip in an lp and she's almost guaranteed to mess it up in some way. That makes it her worst jump.

    If Kovtun skates well that may not happen, however. Menshov had a consistent season but so did Kovtun. Kovtun had 2 meh competitions - Nats and Worlds, but was very strong at all his other events. If I had to guess, at WTT Menshov will beat him, but by a very narrow margin. It's not like Menshov is some kind of skate god and Kovtun is a piece of crap kid like some are suggesting. He beat Han Yan at JGP Croatia and Farris and Brown at JGPF, and those guys are all good, winning 4CC bronze and JWC gold and silver this season. Clearly he is very talented.

    You point out how his problems started with senior length skates starting at nationals. Once he it seniors because all his training and success was in juniors he started to bomb horribly. It does not matter that menshov is Not a skate god he was better than kovtun. There is a difference between juniors and seniors and kovtun shows difficultly handling it. Euros was mixed for kovtun not any kind of great triumph. He was lucky plushenko withdrew.
