Anyone else see the new Angels of Plushenko Instagram story? Aliona's 3S looks looser than I remember. Could the quad be coming?
Here's the clip:

It's definitely a nice, big, airy 3S! :love:

As for a possible quad...WELLLL, Aliona did tell them to stop filming here:

What is it that you don't want us to see, Aliona?? :unsure::biggrin:

But realistically speaking, I think that if Aliona were working on a 4S (or even her 3A), she'd be wearing those padded shorts that she has...

But we can hope! ;)

It was my first thought when I saw the 3S - much looser, slower rotation, very high! I think she is trying the quad :) I hope it won't affect her gorgoeus 3A though 🙏
Gosh I love her so much... I want to see her on the top of the podium in Beijing so badly!

That's how I like jumps: High and with slow rotation, like the skater is suspended in the air, there is no gravity and there's no hurry to get back on the ice

I can't wait to see Aliona compete, just 2 more weeks. :cheer:

But I realized she is scheduled to have 4 competitions in less than 2 months (the 2 cup events, Rostelecom, RusNats) it sounds a bit too much. Hopefully her new team will know how to handle it.

I usually don't self promote, but I drew Aliona specifically so I'd have a profile photo for here. It seems sometimes this thread enjoys fan art so here is it!

Don't know why the embed feature for instagram isn't working anymore ):

Anyways, I'm always looking for practice so if there are really brilliant photos of Aliona that you've been dying to see as fan art, drop them here, I can never decide what to draw next.
