Articles and Interviews

Original Post by The Finn from January 2016:​

This ice dance team looks very promising. Shpilevaya/Smirnov didn't do that great at their JGP event, but it really looks like they might be the the 3rd russian team that will go to the Junior Worlds. They are also eligible for the Youth Olympics.

This team is 2nd after the SD at the Russian Junior Nationals.

Anastasia Shpilevaya - Grigory Smirnov in second place after the short dance at the championship of Russia in Chelyabinsk. For skaters is very important because of the absurdity of injury partner pupils Irina Zhuk and Alexander Pork had to miss the beginning of the season.

- We are very pleased with the rental. It seems to me that this is one of our best rentals in the season. All that could at this point, we're done. We will try to continue, - said Grigory Smirnov.

- By the start we came quite easily. We try not to worry too much, since excessive excitement and impact can only knock down. Preparing for the championship of Russia hard, we practiced a lot, clean programs. Work and work - commented Anastasia Shpilevaya.

- Compared with the original version of a short dance changed by 40-50 percent. And the elements, and ligaments, in alignment ... So for the time after the Cup of Russia is very much rolled the program - added partner.

- In the free dance will try to skate clean, show their emotions, all to please and to bring their story to the audience - said the skater.

first time I've seen them, never even noticed them in the JGP
are they just in a recent new partnership ?
Smirnov has great personality on the ice, its not all about the lady

they have very smooth and fluid skating especially in the step sequences
very few russian ice dance nowadays have good fluidity and technical at the same time
probably the closest amongst the juniors are Loboda / Drozd, but I like this team as well

They have been together since, ever, I guess? But they competed last year at JGP already. This year they had the bad luck of getting a difficult GP so they ended up swaped with Skoptcova and Aleshin that had a better chance of making the GPF.

She was injured in the summer so they missed the test skate and she wasn't completely fit during the JGP season.

Shpilevaya & Smirnov are 1st after SD at the Youth Olympics but only by 0.18 point. They did score their SB by half a point or so but I kind of expected bigger score and bigger lead.
