Liza's R&J FS in Sochi with 3Lo+3Lo and 3S both arms overhead. She is my favourite novice girl
I love how Nugamova seems to float when she skates, so delicate!
On a side note, I keep thinking about great Russian clashes coming:
Yulia vs Adelina - something I can't wait to see in Russian Nationals.
Serafima vs Evgenia - hurry up, JGPF and Junior Nationals!
Sasha vs Maria - 3rd place in Junior Nationals, maybe?
Gubanova vs Tsurskaya vs Nugamova - very talented novices, all of which I hope to see in Junior Nationals.
New figure skating show: Russia's got talent
EDIT: Totally forgot about Elena, Alena, Liza and Anna...
Has this been posted before? A Russian report about the costs of figure skating (at least I think so, correct me if I'm wrong), featuring Mishin's group. They interviewed Nugumanova, her mum and her coach Oleg Tataurov. Liza, Sasha Petrov, Dimitriev Jr, Maria Stavitskaya, Gumennik and Mishin's dog all appear at one point or another during their training sessions. Filmed in June.
I've seen no video evidence of further talents, so I guess Russia will be in deep crysis in late twenties! Scaaaary!
Lol, no biggie!EDIT: Totally forgot about Elena, Alena, Liza and Anna...
Well papa, Russia's stocked up to 2026 (the Novice girls will be about 23 by then). For someone be ellegible for 2026, they have to be born before 2011, meaning they probably can barely tie their skates, let alone jump.
PS: Have we ever had any sort of Russian prediction? Like, who will be there for 2018 and 2022... I do understand that it is the opposite of this thread's purpose, though
bellflower is right. They most probably are in kindergarten right now.
Well, we saw Sasha in Rostelecom. IMO her jumps were better (sadly, the costume wasn't) so what do you think? Does she stand a chance in Russian Nationals and Jr Worlds?
