    Maxim Kovtun

    He had a good season and now I can't wait for his new programs for the next. Hopefully, we'll see improvement in terms of choreography and expression.


    UPDATE- yes, Maxim had a very good season, repeating as Russian champion, winning two GP's and his first ISU championship medal at Europeans (silver), and winning a silver medal with Team Russia at his first World Team Trophy

    Interesting fact: Maxim was born the EXACT same day as me. Not just the same birthday. But the same year as well.

    Kovtun lost a month of training because of boot problems.
