If (stepanova) Bukin wasn’t banned, and went to the Olympics with bobrova/soloviev. OAR would have had a real shot at getting gold again. Splitting the SD and FD between stepanova/bukin and bobrova/soloviev would mean less stress and they would be less tired.
Plus, stepanova/bukin’s SD is so good, it’s their strength (they got higher that bobrova/soloviev in 2018 europeans).
I am still not over this.
I am so sad, and so ready for them to kick (insert3letterwordhere) in worlds.
No, lack of S/B did no harm, blame Kolyada instead
I have a feeling this new season is going to be great for Sasha and Ivan. Depending on their programmes of course. This could definitaly be a break out year .A medal at gp and Euros?
