These two have not been together for even two months if my maths is right, but they already have an Instagram page, other Russian sites and now their own fan page thread. I think I'm going to slowly sip a glass of sweet red roo and enjoy this. All the best to the new pair. (This is the closest emoticon I could find)
Kustarova was with them at the Bolshoi so I guess Kustarova. But they started together something like a month ago , not many options
All the best to them! This is a case of ridiculously attractive young people , they'd look good in any magazine cover. And I think it's good they started now, since everyone will be focused on the Olympics season there is a chance to do some serious work and not in a hurry .
There were reports earlier from Russia that they had been in a training camp with Alexei Gorshkov as well. He still (I think?) has a role overseeing all of ice dance coaching in Russia, although he is not so involved with established couples like Bobrova/Soloviev etc.
They will be at test skates in September. I will not expect too much from them then as it will only have been a few months. Hopefully the federation won't either, and instead treat this as a season for learning & growing so they are ready to go full steam ahead in the post Olympic season.
