    I believe that I/K will go to Zueva next year. Staying with Morosov makes no sense in my opinion. I do not like I/K so much but at least they have personality on ice...B/S made great progress but this year they have boring programms, no uniqueness and creativity.

    Dyani, Welcome to Golden Skate! I hope I&K will go to Zueva next year-or better yet, to Igor.

    Good to see I/K bounce back from NHK with their SD at TEB!

    Yeah, I believe it was a new personal best for them. Good for them, I really like their SD and I love the way they skate.

    Nice recovery. Look forward to watching it later. Though I still don't care for 16 Tons as a foxtrot.

    Indeed it was a PB! And they're really close to P/B! I would say they're far from done... we'll see how the FD goes. One assumes that they increased their levels to avoid another NHK.

    Thank God they are able to keep up with the Shibutanis! I heard ISU awards anyone who a beats the Shibs a free Grand Slam at their local Denny's restaurant.

    I love the Shibs, but that cracked me up. Actually, it should be a free meal at McDonald's! (The amount of McDonald's references by Alex in their last ShibSibs video was extreme!).

    they are inconistent with levels but if they perform like here
    they have a better shot of an Olympic medal better than B/S who seem to be going backwards again

    I know, right? Shameful! Taking that spot away from all the better Russian teams out there! And when they are only capable of scoring 171.89 at their BEST!

    Ok sorry, had to get it out of my system. I'll be good now.

    I&K were very impressive in TEB. They have worked hard to improve their fluidity and every element. Over 102 points; their TES and PCS are almost matching now. Congrats, they are back on track.

    I was wondering about that too.

    Past results from junior worlds:

    2010
    1. Elena Ilinykh / Nikita Katsalapov,
    3. Ksenia Monko / Kirill Khaliavin
    6. Ekaterina Pushkash / Jonathan Guerreiro

    2011
    1. Ksenia Monko / Kirill Khaliavin
    2. Ekaterina Pushkash / Jonathan Guerreiro
    6. Evgenia Kosigina / Nikolai Moroshkin

    2012
    1. Victoria Sinitsina / Ruslan Zhiganshin
    2. Alexandra Stepanova / Ivan Bukin
    4. Anna Yanovskaia / Sergei Mozgov

    2013
    1. Alexandra Stepanova / Ivan Bukin
    4. Valeria Zenkova / Valerie Sinitsin
    6. Evgenia Kosigina / Nikolai Moroshkin

    Results from JGPF:
    JGPF
    season 2009-2010

    4 Ekaterina Pushkash / Jonathan Guerreiro
    6 Evgenia Kosigina / Nikolai Moroshkin
    8 Marina Antipova / Artem Kudashev

    season 2011-2012
    1 Victoria Sinitsina / Ruslan Zhiganshin

    4 Anna Yanovskaia / Sergei Mozgov
    5 Valeria Zenkova / Valerie Sinitsin
    6 Evgenia Kosigina / Nikolai Moroshkin

    In the last few years there seems to be quite a few Russian dance couples getting into JGPF, a Russian dance couple winning junior worlds, usually the lowest from three Russian couples attending junior worlds are no worse than sixth, but where are they in seniors? It seems to me that it is much harder to push through now than a few years ago, because after the last Olympics no top dance couples retired. But that still doesn't explain why neither of them are catching up at least Riazanova-Tkachenko.

    DomShab, DelShoes, B/A, F/S, the Kerrs... I'd say a couple top dance couples did retire after 2010 (or 2011).

    The junior Russian dance teams dominated JGP because they met with even less impressive competition from North America. The real question is, who is going to be the face of NA dance after V/M and D/W? Right now, of all the junior dance teams on JWC podium from 2011-13, Papadakis/Cizeron is the only team I see some promise and possible longevity from.
