Having said that, even Adelina in an interview last week said that all the russian figure skaters are friendly with each other but with yulia is different because she is always with her mom. Yulia recently said that she has almost no contact with anyone her age, that she isn't the most social person, and that she spends her weekends at home doing chores and online. Eteri said yulia keeps things inside, and Averbuch said something like "you have to knock on yulia's door for at least 5 minutes before she lets you in." All of this reinforces what the tabloid reported, so I am inclined to accept their claim of a supposed relationship between yulia and pitkeev, which probably came from the same source(s) as the other claims. Now pitkeev is with serafima and suddenly yulia has a new puppy. hmmm... of course i don't know the actual truth, just speculating here.
Last word is yours if you want it
Yulia is a strong Christian girl and has said many times she is not interested in a relationship yet.
As far as friends. From interviews I have read the gist was always she didn't have friends outside the skating world. She is friends with girls like Pogorilaya.
Look at Tuk's Instagram page. It's got some stuff on it. She seems very social and her career seems to be going in a different direction. Correlation?
Well, she looked very happy with her puppy, so I guess she loves the puppy more than Pitkeev.Now pitkeev is with serafima and suddenly yulia has a new puppy. hmmm... of course i don't know the actual truth, just speculating here.
No "broken hearts", everybody is happy.
All these Russian babies but can they withstand puberty. I wonder what about Leonova? Makarova will she really come back. Tuk? They are deemed over the hill or not going to make it. Then you have Julia, Adelina, Anna, Elena, and the list goes on
The only two I have concerns about are Sotskova and Medvedeva. I think they will be held back in juniors next year and Proklova and probably Serafima will be on senior.
Then when the really good girls who are about to turn 12 are ready they will take the spots of the girls that don't amount to anything.
Is Pitkeev going to skate as a senior? He is old enough right? I've seen it predicted both ways but I mostly follow ladies and honestly don't know his plans or eligibility status.
I'm talking next year when they are all 15.
In modern skating I think 20 is going to be considered over the hill.
