I really enjoy watching this skater. There are little details that I see in him that I don't see in a lot of seniors. One thing that stands out the most is his posture/carriage. He's got a great back! For his age (14) he really pays attention to details in the choreo (i.e. hands). Will be keeping a close eye on this one!
It might be a Kutovoi thing Although I've also noticed many well-spoken young skaters, he seems to have his own unique demeanour.He comes across as a wise little man with an incredible discipline well beyond his ages. But this is not the first time I got the same impression on young athletes from Russia. I wonder if it's a cultural thing?
