He is a Kool Kid for sure.

Emotional involvement in the music and dance will come with time, Gleikhengauz will see to that.

I really like him. He has very nice extensions. Actually, I feel he is much more artistic already than a lot of the Russian senior men.

Congratulations to Daniil on his win at Children of Asia Games in Sakhalin! Only mistake was a fall< on 4Lz in the FS. We know he can do it perfectly fine so we’re not to worry. SP 84.95, FS 153.11, 238.06 total score🥇[emoji1373]
