I love their stsq in the sp. Not a fan of the lp, but they are really pushing the sbs jumps. I wonder if we'll see a 4tw later this season. Though I suppose it'll be better to work on polishing their skating first.
Yeah, that will be very interesting battle indeed because most likely one of them will make it to the Euros and Worlds this season. Unless both pairs mess up at the Russian Nationals in which case someone like Efimova/Korovin could claim the 3rd place if they would skate really well.
Happy with their TES, they were clean, very good. However, they were (and especially Daria - i miss her smile!) very cautious and the program looks a bit empty in between the elements. They can only go up from here!
Congrats for all level 4s! highest BV of the competition- at least we can celebrate that. Their partnership is the newest of the higher ranked pairs, plus they're very young, so it'll take time for them to get pcs. They just need to keep skating clean and consistent while steadily improving.
And someone on their coaching team certainly knows what they're doing, with the consistently high levels they get on their non-jump elements.
2018 CS Finlandia Trophy. Their score wasn't great but that was mostly because of their low PCS. They had pretty much the same TES as B/K but their PCS was about 11.5 points lower. In any case, this was a pretty good international senior debut.
