SP: Chopin Nocturne in E Flat Major (orchestral version)
LP: Beatles songs (from Abbey Road)
Guys, I just updated their OP. There's nothing new there, but it is at least all in one place.
I actually really liked their Beatles program choreography at their test skate- it has a fun feel!
Unfortunately Vera is ill and hospitalized, so these two will not be able to compete at the Mordovian Ornament. I hope she will get well soon
Hospitalized? That doesn't sound good.
Illness of Vera is not too serious, they will miss only Mordovian Ornament.

Thank you very much for the link with the more detailed info! It looks like she was hospitalized for diagnostic purposes, because her right ankle had been bothering her. It turned out that she had a slight sprain due to too much training. She was released from the hospital on Thursday and was planning to resume training the next day. She had missed a fortnight of training due to a cold before that, though, and Vasiliev said it'd sure have a negative effect on her overall physical condition. But I'm just very relieved that she doesn't have a serious illness or injury.

Good luck tonight Vera and Andrei!
Nice to see a fan thread for Vera and Andrei. They had a good debut season last year and I was hoping to see them push on from that this year, however, I think in a very deep Russian field they are going to struggle a bit. The big issue for me are their jumps, I think she has gone backwards a bit and has become very inconsistent, it also seems to have impacted on Andrei a bit.
I really like their short this year, the music suits them both, I love the throw with the great running edge. I didn't like the free starting of but it is definitely growing on me. They gave a decent performance in Kazan, there was a fall on a throw and a messy axel combination but on the whole I liked it.
Best of luck for the rest of the season.
Congrats to these two on their best SP to date today! They scored 64.06, their PB by over 4 points! Well done Hopefully they can carry this momentum into the free.
