    Yes. It's Evgenia Medvedeva. Adian Pitkeev is far right

    One of my friends is a big Whovian. I've watched a few episodes...those weeping angels freak me the hell out!

    I love that Evgenia is a bit of a nerd. I'm a huge nerd!! Mention Harry Potter/Walking Dead/Game of Thrones/anything by Joss Whedon/Korra and about a dozen other shows/movies and we can be BFFs!

    I like Maria Vigalova's skating. When she skates with her partner something about them makes me think of Katya & Sergei.

    Actually saw this earlier on a Korean figure skating blog. Very impressive. Do you know how old she is?

    My goodness! As if it wasn't confusing enough with all the Polinas we already have. Now it looks like we are going to get a second Polina S!

    Here is Polina Stepanova's profile on the Russian Federation's website:

    http://www.fskate.ru/skaters/3730.html

    It doesn't tell you a lot about her apart from that she was born in 2004 (makes you feel old, doesn't it?!) and belongs to the club in Voronezh (a town I had never heard tell of, but which I have just looked up and discovered is near the Ukrainian border...) But it does have some results.

    Hope this helps

    I've been silently stalking this thread for some time now and wondered :

    What on earth is it that Russia does better than other countries??
    It's obvious that their youngsters are miles better than any other country's ones... does anybody know what it is that they are doing to make their skaters so good at such a young age??
    Better training facilities(although I can't imagine them being better than Japan's or those of the US) ? Better coaches? More training?

    What is it :D ??
