Elena is overly emotional and there were many times she allowed her emotions to get in the way of her performance. Many times I thought Nikita was furious with her but held it back and seemingly comforted her, but his tight smiles gave it away. The partnership had to be very hard for him.
You're probably right, chuckm, but even Grishuk and Platov managed to stay together after an OGM, even though they couldn't stand each other.
Why split now that the way to the top is clear? OTOH, it's their career, so whatever they decide. It seems a waste, though.
I was wondering if it was April Fool's Day when I saw the thread title.....
Maybe Elena can pair up with Ruslan Zhiganshin with Kustarova as their coach, and a new rivalry will be born.
On a side note, Nikita and Victoria would look good together...(but still hoping it's not true
grishuk/platov was an anomaly, i can't think of another team that's stayed together despite a terrible personal relationship. i think some of you seriously underestimate just how emotionally taxing and exhausting a skating partnership is. if their personal relationship wasn't working out, i'm willing to bet it would've translated to their skating eventuallyWhy split now that the way to the top is clear? OTOH, it's their career, so whatever they decide. It seems a waste, though.
Honestly, something just doesn't seem right in this story. I/K is one of the couples that have the best chemistry, are very supportive and you could clearly see that they care about each other... I wouldn't be surprised if even B/S split up, because they don't have that connection... But Nikita and Elena always seemed like they belong together.
If it is true about Elena and her coach that man needs to be neutered .How many girls has this man taking advantage of.It is just wrong for Morozov to be dating theses girls.
Just now read from this twitter
"Yes, it is true about I/K. All the question to Lena, it was her intention to give up sport"
"And it is true about Nikita and Victoria. It is hard to imagine though. They have such a different character and emotions"
