I wonder if Russia will be willing to release Lubov now though, Dylan is one of the strongest male pairs skaters right now and Canada is probably Russia's biggest competition right now. I think her case is different because at the time of the split apparently Lubov was treated very poorly by her coach and her partner at the time and the training environment had an adverse effect on her skating. She tried to skate for France but the federation held onto her for speaking out about it.
    Thanks for your reply! I do hope they release her - she is totally unknown to me, as I've never seen her skate, but I think it is heartbreaking for them to stand in her - and in this case Dylan's - way. Even if they may very well turn out a threat - I hope so for no other reason than that we sorely need as many good pair couples as possible - still, Russia has enough pairs to go around, and the Rus fed shouldn't behave in such a... "dog in the manger" fashion. Sigh. Well, we'll see, I suppose...

    No biggie, but could it be that the uneven lighting of the photo made a difference to your eyes?
    They both were easily recognizable to me, but it is true that Tessa and the papers in front of her are in shadow, whereas Scott and his paperwork are directly under the light source.
