    OP by Totentanz, December 2014:

    I really enjoyed their FD this season (2014-15) and have a feeling that this team is going to achieve much more things in future.

    FD at Russian Nationals: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxDPAHLNYMo

    Their reaction after seeing the scores was amazing!!

    I've liked them for a while now, and thanks for starting the thread. I think they are very promising and I look forward to them improving.
    And on a non-skating note: They are simply gorgeous.

    Agree! I saw them in person during JGP Bosphorus Cup 2012 and they were like Hollywood stars fascinating people around their way when they walk!!

    I had no idea who they were before this season, but they really caught my eye during Skate America: the sit twizzles, the million-position lifts, and her oh-so-diva hands at the end of the SD. Tanith Belbin (or was it Carol Lane? My memory... ) said that in every lift, twizzle, and combination spin, this team is always adding some form of innovation. They've received some flak for their SS and TAT's overhype, but I really appreciate how different they try to be.

    Their FD took a while to click with me, but I suddenly "got it" at Nationals. And they were, of course, very cute in the K&C.

    Congratulations to Alexandra and Ivan. Definitely not a result I would've foreseen.

    so decided to search something new going into WC & found the interview with Sasha where she says nothing significant but for the bumping of the thread of the couple I like it will do

    She says that the changes in the program are minimal
    After the successful result of the Euros it pushed them to work more & be better. Now they dont go back to these memories & ready for more. The training & preparation for WC goes steady & surprisingly without any pressure & no difference from the preparation to any other comp.


    Good luck my loves!

    so now as I feel that after Worlds it became so fashionable to hate on them I feel like I need to support them 10 fold now
    I cant make TAT or other people in their so called 'team' (how can those people call it 'support' of S/B is beyond me) shut up, mind their own business & stop taking **** about other teams but what can I do

    Combining with the pretty meh result at worlds I still kinda hopeful that next season they will be somewhat successful even if they potentially can move down to #4-5 in the team

    Sasha said that the fail @ worlds can be stimulating for them. The medals at Euros gave them false sense of security.

    Vanya calls the season successful even with all the fails & losses. Sasha is sad because they failed the team in SD.

    Rubleva too says that they looked very nervous & that the Euro result (& *cough cough* overhype) took its tall on them in SD while in FD they didnt feel the pressure.


    Looked like movie stars at the Worlds Banquet

    Don' t forget, skating is in Ivan's blood cause he is Andrei Bukin's son joined with Bestemianova were one of the greatest ice dancers in the history.

    Another person who supports them. I really like the changes in tempo of their FD, and how the choreography highlighted that. It was nice to see them move into the Top 10. Too bad about the SD, but it's hard to blame Alexandra with her bleeding knee after seeing (apparently uninjured) teams also fall over.

    Let me join you! Actually, this is my first post.
    I am rather optimistic about their result at Worlds. Even in SD, they have gained quite decent scores for other elements, and I'm glad they managed to pull themselves together in FD.
    Considering last season, they made a great leap forward. Also, they have improved a lot since the beginning of the season. I think it has been a pretty successful season for them, and hope they continue to work hard and develop themselves!

    Any news about their new programs?
    I really like that they are fresh and creative in their programs. Ivan has charisma and Alexandra seems to have the mental strength of a champion. Hope she will develop her technique this year.
