Not many pairs or ID couples, but some interesting names among the single's. Let's just hope the competition will be held.

Between the pandemic and the political unrest in Belarus I really wasn't expecting this competition to go ahead, never mind having a substantial number of competitors!

I expect all the riots to be concentrated in the city centre, and with the stadium being located some way off it, I don't think there will be an imminent danger to the event, avoiding the red zone. Fingers crossed!

From the Mishina interview I learned:

- Now your students have the Ice star 2020 tournament in Minsk ahead?
-- Yes. Aleksandr Gorshkov, President of the Russian Figure Skating Federation, is also going there. He consulted, found out how safe it was in Minsk [because of the protests against Lukashenko]. He said that all the competitions will be held outside the city, so there is no need to go to Minsk itself. This is an international competition, we thought it would be useful to us. Especially Zhenya Semenenko. He missed a lot due to health problems, which is why he does not have an international rating. Last year he could get to the junior World Championship, but he was not even considered, because without international points this is impossible. We decided to take the opportunity now.

The stream is now live!

I'm a bit confused because the schedule says the ice dancers are on today, but it appears to be Junior Men.

ETA: Looks like it's Novice men, who might all be from Belarus, not sure though.

"In the windows of your mind" now that is a nice song to skate to when you're a young girl with childhood fantasies

Novice girls competing now.

The first girl Alina Korbut skated to the same music as Liza Tuk did in 2017-2018. :biggrin:

Sadly she fell on her second to last spin and was super upset, poor kid. There's still the FS though, so good luck to her for that.
