Original Post by daphenaxa in October 2015



Nazarova's real Ukrainian name is Oleksandra Yevhenivna Nazarova (Ukrainian: Олександра Євгенівна Назарова); Alexandra is a Russian name. Also she is probably the most beautiful girl in ice dance! (and that's some achievement) Her partner is Maksym Nikitin (Ukrainian: Максим Нікітін). Maxim is the Russian version of his name.

In 2012 they finished 2nd at the Youth Olympic Games.

In 2013-2014 they made it to the Junior Grand Prix finale and finished 5th.

In 2014-2015 they won gold at Ukraine Senior Nationals, and they won a bronze medal at Junior Worlds.

They were also sent to Senior Europeans, where they finished 11th for their first participation, and to Senior Worlds, where they finished 17th.

They now live in Moscow and are coached by Alexander Zhulin.

Thanks for the article :) the way they thought and constructed their program with a poetic and intricate background story reminds me of Nathalie & Fabian. It also makes me like the FD even more!

I am glad to see they will be at Worlds. They had to withdraw from Ukrainian Nationals, so I have been worried they would not be there!

Their OP is updated. best wishes to them!

I am glad to see they will be at Worlds. They had to withdraw from Ukrainian Nationals, so I have been worried they would not be there!

Their OP is updated. best wishes to them!

Sorry, but the decision to send them to Worlds was unsportsmanlike... and, by the way, Sasha had a very serious knee injury and underwent surgery and resumed her trainings very recently... Our ukrainian fed's head office made that decision in hindsight, without any selection...

Honestly it doesn't seem that controversial to me as the other Ukrainian dance couple couldn't even make the free dance at Euros, and if they couldn't manage that there I highly doubt they would do better here with all those teams plus the Americans and Canadians. Nazarova and Nikitin provide a way better shot to do well.

Man look... first Sasha resumed her trainings very recently after serious injury and surgery. Nobody knows nothing about Sasha's shape and conditions - only words but no facts.

Second - that was very first highest-level senior competition for Valeria & Olexiy and on the Santa Claus cup in december they've got near 55 points for SD. They have not shown their real level at Europeans so they deserved to go to the Worlds or at least competitive selection between them and Sasha & Max.

And, by the way, there is no trust to our fed and its head office and president... no trust for a long time...

The fed had no choice. Valeria & Alexei have not yet gotten the SD TES minimum required for Worlds.

Doris, wrong! The TES minimum can be gotten on ANY ISU event. It's not PB/SB

Hopefully she is fully healthy. What was her actual injury? Sometimes recovery times can be quite quick even from surgery depending on the injury and the athlete (i.e. a partially torn miniscus).

While this isn't really relevant since they couldn't be sent anyway, the scores from the Santa Claus Cup are highly suspect (in general, not just the Ukrainians).

I think the point is that their current PB, from their JGP was not enough to meet the TES minimums in the SD.

The TES minimum for Europeans/Worlds can be recieved on ANY ISU event, not only on GP/JGP/Europeans/Worlds. So Gaistruk - Olijnyk got their TES minimum on Santa Claus Cup...

She underwent a knee surgery - meniscectomy or something like that... I don't know exactly
