flutz16's Original Post December 2014​


After years of having low levels and inconsistent technical skaters in junior ice dance, Popova / Vlasenko
are promising. Vlasenko needs to get better edges and polish his skating skills but Popova is a real talent
They were able to challenge the North American skaters technically and won by more than 7 points.
They need a Lift specialist for sure. Their style is reminiscent of classical 80's and early 90's Russian dancers.

Betina & Yuri has been assigned to Spain now, so, I guess they are fine.
That's good to hear :) I didn't know before they had their own thread! I wish them good luck in qualifying for JGPF :cheer:

Betina&Yuri didn't win at Spain but nevertheless they have made it to the JGPF. They will have a pretty good chance at getting a 2nd JGPF medal, although there will be a lot of very even teams fighting for medals.

Me too. I think the difference really was in the fact that they skated first in SD.
They lost the FD too. And that was because of their lower levels in step sequences (both in SD and FD) and twizzles (in SD). Their PCS were still higher than Lauriault/Le Gac's in both programs. Maybe the difference would have been larger if they had skated after the french, but probably not by enough.

I hadn't really noticed these two until this competition (I try to avoid heartbreak by limiting my exposure to junior teams) but I really enjoyed both their SD and their FD! I wil definitely keep an eye out for them next year and at Junior Worlds :love:

Also am I correct that they do have one more year of junior eligibility if they so choose?

Silver medalist Russia-2015 dance duo Betina Popov - Yuri Vlasenko took fourth place after the short dance competitions in Chelyabinsk. After rolling program told the athletes that made ​​them change their short dance and appreciated my speech.

- In the short dance, I made ​​a mistake on the twizzle. It's completely my shortcoming - admitted Betina Popov. - You had, apparently, to be more focused, as well, the rest is all done well. Why did it happen, just can not say. It is necessary to look at the replays of what happened. It feels thought that because of the new dress, I led a large skirt. We've a new program, respectively, and a new dress.

Before that, we went to the music for the film "Master and Margarita", but the coaches felt that the need to change the short dance, brought us new music. We now have "Snowstorm" and polka. For a month completely changed the program. For us it is very unusual new images and their strange ride. Maybe it is said that the new program. But while talking about something definitely early. It is necessary to look at the replays.

- But we do not worry. Fourth place - it's not so far from the first three. Let's tune, to fight to the end. Skating remained the same with us, knurled. It will try to show its maximum, - said Yuri Vlasenko.
