Some harsh moments, but once again it's just the beginnning of the season, they also showed some strong parts and definitely have the future.

Yasmina and Ivan will compete at the stage 4 of the Russian cup in Kazan this week. I almost wish they would have signed up for stage 1 or 3 because here they will face Boikova/Kozlovskii, Mishina/Galliamov, Tarasova/Morozov, Panfilova/Rylov and Vasilieva/Volodin, and possibly Mukhametzianova/Mironov. Here's to a great performance and qualification for nationals. Once again, I am extremely impressed by how fast Yasmina has picked up on pairs. And I hope that she has not lost her other triples, so that maybe one day Balchenko can catch up.
