Ladies FS - 2014 Russian Championships
Go Julia! Go Elena ! Hope Adelina doesn't have a wardrobe malfunction :/
when does this start?
Well, website says 18:40 local time (Sochi), which is 14:40 UTC, which is also five hours from the time of this post.
Or, as other people have suggested on this forum, you could try this site: http://www.worldtimezone.com/time/wt...4752&forma=24h and calculate the difference between their local time and your time zone.
Hope this helps!

Julia got her least favourite number. But, well, maybe it is good for her to get used to skating last, because she said it is quite hard for her.
Good luck all the ladies!
Go Julia! Go Adelina!! Excited two more hours to go
I hope Pogo can skate clean and pull up to third. Very unlikely, I know but crazier things have happened. Sadly, even if she did that, she might not be able to go to Euros given the third spot will be decided by the coaches' council. :/
I agree. What if she skates last in Sochi? Skaters must be flexible. I'm sure she will get more used to it as she grows older, seeing as she will probably be skating last often, where the SP winner skates last in the Grand Prix Circuit and other events?

I remember last time, Ksenia Makarova was named on the team immediately after nationals because she was the champion. Maybe the winner goes and the second spot is open for fight at Euros? Or all 3 ladies that will go to Euros will fight for the 2 spots?

I noted that as well. I imagine the ticket prices for the Olympics are high and people are looking forward to the the main event. I wonder what the TV ratings are like in Russia.

I'm confused, Russia Sport is reshowing pairs and not ladies? That's what on my feed...
What boot problem? I haven't seen men's FS yet... The skates falling apart... That must be dangerous...
