I am not familiar with this guy, is he normally successful? He left Volchkova in pain. When was the last time she had a decent skater? Korobeinikova?
You mean Egor’s coach? Viktoria Buzaeva. She’s got Yablokov, Samoilov and lorry loads of young talent at Moskvich.

No, definitely not. There are no any short forms for "Egor" in Russian - the name is short enough by itself. But there are some tender forms of this name. Егорушка (Yegorushka) for example. Or you can use informal and a bit childish Егорка (Yegorka).
thank you!

Thanks LadyB! I hope some of them will represent team Russia in future and make Viktoria proud.

In hindsight, many skaters might regret not skating at stage one. I don't think medals will be as easy to come by at any other stage - and this goes for ladies, men, dance and pairs.

Sorry if this has been asked and I've just missed the explanation - but what is the 'Bonus" that some skaters got and how does 1 earn it?

I think you get a one point bonus for spins if you achieve a GOE higher than 4 in Russian national events. It is to encourage skaters to also put some work into their spins and not just focus on the jumps.

Like CKL said, there seems to be B if you get GOE 4-5 on your spins. I remember last season Nugumanova got B on her spins in the free, but not in the short although she got GOE 4-5. But as it turns out, the spins in the short were only level 3.

I checked Shcherbakova two seasons ago at Russian Cup, and she got two B for her spins in the short there as well. And one B for a spin in the long, but she also got two Bs for her two 4Lzs although they only received -1 and +1 GOE. So there seems to be more to it than just spins.

Viktoria Butsaeva (nee Volchkova)? Yeah she's got many boys in her group now, but most seem to be mid-tier... Several recently moved to her from CSKA or Sambo-70 after stagnating in their previous environments (e.g. Samoilov and now Erokhov), although Yablokov and Murashov started out with her. Not knocking her skills as a coach, I just get the impression that she doesn't have premium material to work with unlike, say, Tutberidze who attracts top girls. Maybe if her students have a major breakthrough one day, things might change.

Interestingly Volchkova and Dudakov were both students of Viktor Kudriavtsev... I can't see any resemblance between their students' techniques though!

Damn, I thought for a moment someone actually skated to that song and now i´m so disappointed because that would have been awesome. Nightwish version of Walking in the Air would be nice too.
Oh no, haha, I just couldn't take another mediocre Bloodstream and decided to spice up my mute. I'm sorry to have disappointed you, it really would've been awesome.
