They had a very nice RD at the Volvo Open Cup. They are 3rd after RD with a with a very good score (almost 62 points). They are only 2 points behind Shanaeva/Narizhnyy.

They were 3rd at the Volvo Open Cup with a very nice score of 154 points. They are doing really good at the moment. They medaled at their JGP event and now they medaled again at this event where the quality was better than what it was in most JGP events this season. Very well done. I am looking forward to see how they will do at the Junior Nationals.

Once again they did very nicely. Their score was a bit above 62 points which was someting like a half a point more than what they got at the Volvo Open. They are 2nd and less than 4 points behind K/N after RD.

Diana & Gleb are 1st after RD at the Russian-Chinese Youth Winter Games with a score of 61.15 points. Ivanenko/Karpov is the other Russian team at that competition and they are about 1.3 points behind D/S. I didn't see any videos on youtube.

Do you think there is any chance that Diana and Gleb will participate at the Junior Worlds in Zagreb?

Depends on junior RusNats but I doubt. Russia has 3 really strong ice dance teams which qualified for GPF and medaled there so I guess they will be the favourites for the spots

Ushakova/Nekrasov, Shevchenko/Eremenko and Khudaiberdieva/Nazarov are very clear favourites to medal at the junior nationals but you can never be sure. I really don't think D/S can medal this year but maybe next year since both S/E and K/N will move to seniors after this season.
