It seemed Averbukh shows could do without some other skaters, but not without him... Sorry, that he became so uncatchable.

LOL It's quite alright. I am thrilled that the first ice show I'll ever see is an Averbukh show. I was hopeful but I figured with World's, it might not happen.
And it's not as though Kulik will return and randomly do a show. Thank goodness for YouTube for both of them :)
(I'm still hopeful....distantly.... that Aliev might show up in Podolsk)

This is the first time he's preferred another job to Averbukh's ice show, isn't it? :sad21:On the other hand, the mind boggles why the ice show takes place in the week of the Worlds, esp. now when Russia has some medal contenders:confused:

(Yagudin - about Marinin: "I adore smart people with whom I can have plenty to talk about. Actually, athletes are not really talkative... This is why I always respected Maxim: you can chat on any subject with him. We are like a small battery: plus and minus. He is an example of class, education, wide reading, cleverness and so on. I'm the complete opposite.")

Averbukh: "... even though you try to secret yourself under the cloak of cynicism, you are really sincere person and a man of great depth ..."

and - in the end: "Thank you for these 15 years that we have been working together. You are a part of our big family! Nobody knows what will happen tomorrow, yet nobody can take away all what we've done together. Thank you for everything! Happy birthday!"

*sigh* I love him so much. I'm so excited at the prospect of seeing him on TV in Russia this weekend! Since I won't see him live :)

Marinin - about Yagudin: Happy birthday, dear friend! We really see in life that there is nothing you can't do! Even though you don't like to talk about the past, it decides on our future. Millions of figure skating fans all over the world are under your spell. You are an athlete with a capital "A" even today. You always fight to a finish, even if few people believe you can succeed. Being a star, having so many sports achievements, you are always moderate in your demands. You don't stop marching ahead, but you do have time for your family! I wish you to keep this Olympic flame in your heart, so that it could warm your loved ones and help you conquer new peaks! Be healthy and happy, Alexei!

Yagudin - about Marinin: I've seen absolutely different people, but you are perfect as an athlete, as a man and as a husband!!! Happy birthday, dear friend, you are a champion with a capital "C". By contrast with many, you have a heart, a soul and brain!!!! you can be a role model for many #birthday #champion #marinin #totmianina #yagudin P.S. Love you to pieces (a laughing smiley)

Russians like to say "I love I can't" (can't bear it)... I supposed "love you intolerably" could be a possible translation... Or "love you, can't bear it"? I was told it could be "Love you to pieces" :coffee:

:laugh15: It is funny to notice, that Yagudin has agreed to confirm his instagram belongs to him. Not long ago he still didn't want to do it: when someone asked why didn't he do it, Yagudin asked why the asking person didn't do it to his own instagram. (It is funny he does answer such questions - careless, but stubborn)

I guess he still doesn't think he is VIP who should confirm it. He had the contacts of his agents on his page - that was enough for him.

After beautiful speeches Yagudin can't but add: "Yet please, next time don't introduce me for so long. Actually, I'm 39 years old, my hair becomes grey, I can sh** my pants before skating".

I can't say I always liked such talks, but it's wonderful how optimistic he is when he easily says something like this. And it's funny Tarasova still says: "stop it!" :luv17:

Well, I don't know for sure... This text says, that "The Nutcracker" is going to Prague in December: Yagudin, Totmianina.

Yet it also seems, that Yagudin stops skating. In Russia Averbukh is going to show "Carmen" again, but maybe it will be "Carmen" without Yagudin. And here is the text where Yagudin says "her former partner" about Marinin, when he says, that Marinin is going to participate in the opening of their school in Belarus (https://www.sb.by/articles/shkola-chempiona.html).

I have also been wondering if Alexei is hanging up his skates, I forget where I read it now but it certainly sounded like he wasn’t going to be doing anymore shows after the 15 years of success tour that is currently taking place. To be fair he is getting on a bit now bless him ( we are the same age so I can say this haha) and of the other professionals skating in the shows ( correct me if I a wrong) he’s pretty much the only single skater and the only one still knocking out triples ( although even these have been doubles at times). I am sad that I never got to see him skate live ( although I’m pretty sure he came to my rink when I was about 13 with Mishin’s group at the time) and will miss seeing him skating via Instagram and YouTube if he is stepping away from performing but although “lyosha can do everything “ even he has to stop eventually

Yesterday Yagudin's skating centre in Minsk was opened. Tatiana Tarasova and Oleg Vasiliev also were there. Maxim Marinin gave a master class together with Yagudin and Tatiana Totmianina.

There will be a training camp from April 19 to April 30 (Tatiana Totmianina and Polina Shelepen are the coaches).
http://yagudin-center.by/

Here Komleva says, that the centre is going to get money to pay the coaches from those money which the kids are going to pay. As for working with the Belarusian team (top athletes), Yagudin agrees to work for free with them (as Komleva says), though she adds it is still "under negotiation".

In this text Yagudin also says, that Oleg Vasiliev, Maxim Marinin, Yana Khokhlova are going to work in this centre too. (to come from time to time)

Yagudin says he doesn't want to ruin anything or to make athletes leave other schools and come to his school. He wants his centre to be a part of the system, so that they could help each other and come together to a better result.
