    2013 - 2014 Russian skaters, rules, and events

    Season 2012 - 2013 in Russsia is finished.
    No high level competition will be in this season.

    So it is time to start new thread about next season.

    Today was officially published Team Russia for 2013 - 2014 Season. http://fsrussia.ru/upl/ckeditor/1135439.pdf (Russian).

    Thanks for starting the thread, Alex.

    Friendly question:
    I know that last season's thread also was in References, but I never understood why.
    Why not The Edge? Many posts in last year's thread had news updates regarding countless Russian skaters.

    It was moderators' solution - to move thread here. I started it in "The Edge".
    In "2012 - 2013 Russian skaters, rules, and events" were many references and info (including official), so moderators solved so.

    All looks normal. Top 5 of SrNationals are in Senior Team, best Juniors in Junior Team, good but not so good Juniors in Boys-Girls, good (but not very good) Sezganov in Reserve.

    Do you have any explanation why Davankova-Deputat are in reserve? I thought the reserve team is used for those who are not good enough to be in junior team or senior team. Although Davankova-Deputat were a bit weaker than the previous year, they were still pretty decent (2nd and 3rd at JGP, 2nd at JGPF, 7th senior nationals), with better results than Maria Vygalova / Egor Zakroev and Kamila Gainetdinova / Ivan Bich. So I am wondering why Maria Vygalova / Egor Zakroev and Kamila Gainetdinova / Ivan Bich are on junior team and Davankova-Deputat are not? Did they aged out of junior and are not yet good enough for seniors?

    Another question - why Biryukova is not even in reserve team when Agafonova and Shershak are in reserve team?

    Since Pogorilaya is listed as junior, will she be doing the JGP this fall, or the senior GP, since her place at Jr. Worlds qualifies her for a spot?

    It is not understandable for me.
    At 2012-2013 Shelepen, who had good results of season (medals of JGP Events (2 Gold medals) and Final (Silver medal), 2nd place at JrNats, 1st place at Spartakiad, was in Reserve. Also not understandable.

    At 2013/2014 Season Davankova-Deputat may be both Junior and Senior. At 2014-15 - only Senior, Deputat will be too old for Junior.

    Biryukova - no good results at season. 17th of 18 at Nationals, two 9th places (of 9 both times, i.e. last places) at GP Events.

    Shershak also not good (her only competition was JGP Event V, 7th place). But not so bad as Biryukova - not the last place.

    Attn: Doris and/or other mods

    Would you consider allowing this season's thread to return to The Edge? Thx if you do.
    Although last season's had a good volume of traffic in References, I strongly believe that this season's would get an even higher number of views if it were in The Edge. [My humble opinion is based on a whopping sample size of one .]

    The entire content of this season's thread so far fits this criterion of The Edge: "updates on skaters and teams".

    This sort of messages make me think they are an off ice couple. It's very sweet of Maxim. He is a happy man. Finally...

    The last good 3Lo combo is Miki Ando's 3Lz+3Lo at 2007 Worlds.

    Looks like 4S+2T and 4T (fall).

    He is super cute but this program is super boring with frantic uncomposed movements. He should learn how to land his jumps as well.
