Weird...I could swear I had it linked in the post before. Oh well. Here is the English translation:

http://fs-gossips.com/evgeni-rukavi...gure-skating-and-there-are-rules-of-the-game/

So yeah, the news about Averbukh was not unexpected...I'm not too thrilled, but at least Olga & Valentin will still do the SP. My main issue with Averbukh is that he seems very particular about the skater performing his choreo exactly as he wants it, without any deviation. And I think a skater as sensitive as Dima, who skates to such personal themes with total conviction, is going to find that much too restrictive. Olga knows him so well and can create something that he can feel 100%.

I guess there is always a chance that the program will be good. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day...

Cute video of Dima rapping for Olga Glinka :biggrin:

Thanks for the link. I also have great respect for Rukavicin's approach in developing Dima as a harmonious skater. We'll see if Dima can pull off Averbukh's program. Hoping for the best.

That was indeed a cute video. It's always interesting to hear rap in non-English languages. Do you know what the occasion was? The translation thanked "Dimka", another nickname?

Dima posted this a few days ago, but it's so stunning I couldn't not mention it. Gorgeous boy in a gorgeous location! :drama: His photos are always a cut above the typical skaters' Instagram pics (except that he is constantly deleting them...why??? :dev2:). He really is talented in everything he does!

I saw that amazing artwork on Twitter, too. Thanks for the link to his photogenic Instagram post. Do you know where in Italy it was taken? Just beautiful. It is indeed fit for a travel site/brochure.

Do you think he deletes them?
All the posts disappeared, but then some came back yesterday with all the likes and comments to go with them.
I wonder if Instagram is having server problems instead.

Well, he's always been like this...and changed accounts a few times. I know he posted another pic of himself yesterday which is already gone :confused: I guess the moral is, if you see one you like, save it before he deletes.

Averbukh posted a clip of Dima's new program:

https://www.instagram.com/p/BkKGAxHHC5d/

The music is rather typical Averbukh, but I really like it! It's Ezio Bosso: Clouds, The mind on the (Re)Wind

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEB_3cxzKv8

It's just sooooo nice to see Dima on ice again. I think this program will be very dramatic and impactful, just the way I like it :) And so far, no miming...(although I can deal with a little bit, unlike most of GS, apparently)

Very sweet post from Dima dedicated to Alisa...has it really been 4 years?! She was 12 then...:drama: Maybe Romeo & Juliet will make it after all :)

https://www.instagram.com/p/BlAUfLNHt1v/?taken-by=dimaaliev

Whaaaa? They are still dating???

I mean, nothing against them, but I remember I checked Dima's Instagram profile once (back then when he had more photos there...), and probably Alisa's as well, and there weren't many photos of them together. I remember there used to be quite a lot, so I thought, ok, it probably didn't last, it was a childlove (that is quite normal at this age). But now it seems like they are still together! Amazing. I really hope this can last. I wish them so well.

Some Dima stuff from The Ice, if anyone else cares:

He skated his new SP which some have identified as the Modigliani soundtrack.

Dima & Shoma as Mario & Luigi (they had a jump battle, Shoma won)

He looks like he is having a great time at The Ice, what with his magic tricks and other shenanigans! LOVE his new SP music! Don't know if it was mentioned that there were about ten skaters who took part in a tribute to Denis Ten, and he was one of them. They skated to Denis' SP music of last season, "Tu Sei" while a montage of video clips of Denis' last appearance at The Ice was projected on a screen. Members of the audience said it was very moving.
