Tatiana V. looks more like Ksenia Makarova or Caitlin Yankowskas. Aliona doesn't really look like anyone else, she has unique eyes. If she dyed her hair brown instead she would look nothing like Volosozhar.
Castelli/Shnapir -- 11th
Zhang/Bartholomay -- 14th
Pairs is actually my favorite discipline, so I keep wishing for a US pair (or 2...or 3) who can really challenge for the podium. Wanting to see a US pair w/ medals around their necks feels like being a RedSox fan pre 2004! Still, have been really enjoying the Canadians, as well as James/Cipiers (sp).
^ Thank you. skatedreamer! Maybe NBC will show their their recap on 4/13, but I doubt it. I guess I'll have to check out icenetwork.com for them (I much prefer watching all of the competition on a bigger TV screen).
Artur Dmitriev is currently coaching the pair Antipova/Maisuradze which got 8th place here. So he was seen in the kiss 'n cry with them.
thanks for your answers, re: Artur Dmitriev, DianaSelene and Olympia. I'm watching Worlds via Universal Sports, so am not seeing all the participants, like Antipova/Maisuradze (are they Russians?). I did look up those pics on Google, Olympia, "coarsened" looks is probably generous, lol! Oh well, I don't care----he was still to die for as a pair skater
Yes, I've seen A. Dimitriev in kiss and cry with the skaters he was coaching. Yes he is a big guy, and he gained more weight, but he wasn't on the thin side not even when he was competing, especially at the end of his career. I always wondered how was he able to jump that 3T...
