    I would love that but the 1/2 loop....ugh. Very rarely is one done to my liking. I just can't on board with them.

    They look better when it's a continuous combo with the right timing. So many times the ladies make it look like they've made a mistake or jump the salchow with NO speed (Scott Hamilton yell!). I hate, for example, when Chartrand does hers, but Jason Brown's looks great.

    More on topic...Serafima. Love her skating but she does a half loop that just drives me bonkers. If she can fix her jump landings and center those spins she will be great. The skating skills and interpretations will put her one up on many others her age and even beyond

    Back off topic: Yes, Jason Brown does it well and Chan too.

    Back on topic: I don't like Pogo's at all

    I love Serafima's style of skating since a year ago when I first saw her... Reminds me of a mini Butyrskaya.

    Also, how insanely amazing that she does a tano 3T in her 3-3 combos?!

    I used to find half-loop really awkward--always looked like a step-out to me. But I've gotten used to it, and it is a very difficult combo, so hats-off to the girls (and boys) who can do them.

    Cool video titled Russian Babies. Seems appropriate enough.

    If you like Yulia here is a look at the season without a single moment of competitive skating. Just different moments and emotions throughout last season. The ups and the downs. There is like a movie a day that comes out on her official VK fan page

    It's actually become my favourite element to practice. Although I can only manage a 2F-1/2-2S at this point, lol. The hardest part is getting the rotation on the salchow with the loss of speed -- last week, I tried a 2F-1/2L-3S and landed it, but really under-rotated, probably <<.

    Adyan Pitkeev has written at VK that he fell in love with Serafima

    I am afraid that they will draw Julia away from a training

    why ? Julia doesn't care for the personal lives of her co teammates in training
    Sakhanovich is dating Pitkeev, mostly some puppy love I guess

    Some tabloid said Yulia and Pitkeev were dating but that's not true and Eteri had to officially tell the press to stop pestering her students. You know, it's tabloid.

    though everything else the article wrote actually turned out to be somewhat accurate: that yulia needs her mom with her and that she has no friends (her age). maybe yulia got the puppy because they broke up?

    What kind of children don't need their mom beside? And since Yulia has always focused on training, it's understandable that she has no friends her age. It's something all the tabloids have ever written about.
