The Academy has been super busy the past few weeks with the Swan Lake show!

There's more photos and videos than I could possibly link, but you can see them here

This was too cute not to link directly though:

Today/yesterday (timezones are hard) is Nikita Sarnovsky's 13th birthday. 🥳

https://www.instagram.com/p/CKdoyk6hgBj - Birthday wishes from the Academy.

Nikita recently competed at the Moscow Novice Championships.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CKOvqTqq03f - He had a great SP and was in 3rd, after the elements he was 6th and then after a very difficult FS was in 9th - only the top 6 get to Novice Nationals.

3 days ago there was another birthday - Amira Irmatova of Sergei Volkov's group. No idea who she is but nice photos! https://www.instagram.com/p/CKWnczLh4jm

https://www.instagram.com/p/CKTJ5fdKrfl - Working with Sergei R - Leonid Sviridenko and Anastasia Sharoskhina.

https://www.instagram.com/tv/CKLmWVWqv9f - Choreography classes.

There is a lot more on the Academy Insta, but I have to do things today so I'll wrap up here.

Oops I meant to post in here earlier, but I kept getting distracted.

The Academy Insta is most thorough so obviously I won't link everything or we'll be here for hours :laugh:

Here's a few link - sort of in date order:

From Coach Lyudmila Alferova's group

https://www.instagram.com/p/CKrT6zcqHmD - A double Lutz from Nastya Sokolova

https://www.instagram.com/p/CKyLrIQqxYH - Kirill Sarnovsky and the Zhilina sisters warming up jumps just before heading onto the ice.

https://www.instagram.com/tv/CLBWT1KqL-T - Kirill Sarnovsky and the Zhilina sisters again, is this an arabesque? I think so, but don't quote me ;)

https://www.instagram.com/p/CK2-HAHqewF - More warming up, these have a name that I can't remember, but they're difficult!

https://www.instagram.com/p/CLCOgLzhH4F - Polina Lyanenko winner of the Memorial for M.Y Gurevich in the 2nd sports category (is that the same as the younger younger novice category? I have trouble keeping these categories straight!)

https://www.instagram.com/p/CLGvBV9BQOs - Sofia Sarnovskaya (I'm pretty sure she's Kirill and Nikita's little sister, a figure skating family, cool!) doing a 3F-2T.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CLMoyUPqQmY - Coach Alferova also holds a pole - working on a 2A with Margarita Yadgarova.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CLMoXXIKOJ- - Seems it paid off, Margarita doing a 2A :)

https://www.instagram.com/p/CLPH2OSBym7 - Margarita wins silver at the February Ice Competition in the 1st Category :cheer2:

https://www.instagram.com/tv/CLPK8L7qGg1 - Her program. (Is this Plushy's old rink? If so that's kind of funny!)

Off ice warm ups:

Ballet lessons


https://www.instagram.com/p/CKxxCvXKsB_ - I've become convinced that a skipping rope is a skaters' best friend :biggrin:

https://www.instagram.com/tv/CK0aT5zKUij - I don't know what this exercise is called, but obviously it's to get the right torque for jumping.

Dima Mikhailov's Group:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CKwm5K4KTZg - Working with Sofia Titova on her program, this is cute!

https://www.instagram.com/p/CLBaHTDKuod - Sofia T landing her first 3A on ice, yay!

Alexander Volkov's Group:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CK_Y4tPhscg - Anna Kalinka wins at Minsk (I'm not actually sure what competition this is...Google Translate translates it as the Republican Competitions, not sure if that's Belarusian Nationals)

Junior Nats

https://www.instagram.com/p/CKx8F5xqz_5 - Veronika Z preparing for Junior Nats

https://www.instagram.com/p/CK0g6bxhoHG - The Academy's good luck post for the Angels who competed.

Kirill Sarnovsky's and Artem Kovalev's programs would be in their fanfests, but I don't think Sofia Murveva is old enough to have a fanfest yet so here's her SP


Her FS:

https://www.instagram.com/tv/CK3_3yhqUJI - She did amazingly and got the bronze. :) 🥉🥳

Veronika Z is also too young to have her own fanfest, but she didn't have the best competition.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CK5r9cXh2Fo - She did kick butt on the quads and 3A in the FS :clap: though!

Just for fun:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CK8WOBPqWOS - Sofia Titova and Nikita Sarnovsky doing SBS loops

https://www.instagram.com/p/CK9z-RlhW9M - Angels at the Channel 1 Cup - Varya Yolshina, Margarita Yadgarova and Veronika Z.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CLHTqOwhQuC - Arina Parsegova amazing split jump.

Other stuff:

https://www.instagram.com/p/CLOT5VLK3BZ - Before you can skate you gave to get a medical check. Not sure what they're measuring, oxygen levels, blood pressure?

OK I actually have to go to bed at some point so I'll wrap this up for now. I'll be back with more though.

Ta-ta for now!

And now that I've gone from most recent Insta post I have no idea where I'm at.

There's a Spring Camp going on at the Academy it started last Monday (the 10th) and goes to the 22nd (this Saturday). Today's a rest day, so good time to catch up on it!

https://www.instagram.com/p/COuGNBJqcfk - Off-ice training outside in the sun. If I could skip rope for more than two rotations this would be fun :laugh:

On a more personal note Dima Mikhailov got engaged to his long find girlfriend, Ekaterina Pushkash (never heard of her but she was a skater too)

https://www.instagram.com/tv/CO3q9xnpodg - He went to quite a lot of trouble, nicely done and congratulations to them 🥳

Hello all!

It's summertime over in Russia, but the Academy is hard at work.

I've kind of let this thread go, so I won't try to do stuff in order, because I'll be here forever! Instead here's some links that caught my eye.

As far as I can tell, every day includes off-ice strength sessions with Coach Rem

https://www.instagram.com/p/CQamzx_K-fz https://www.instagram.com/p/CRYJf5sI8_Q and https://www.instagram.com/p/CQfmj_6qIb1

With the great weather in Russia at the moment there's lots of outdoor work outs too.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CQSuuS-qTKH https://www.instagram.com/p/CQIfiuZKrOr and https://www.instagram.com/p/CPuquYjKlE4
https://www.instagram.com/p/CP_Qft8qCbg - This thing probably has a proper name, but I have no idea what it is so I call it the "Spinny Thing of Doom". This time Kirill Sarnovsky gets a turn.

https://www.instagram.com/tv/CQ-mXUZIPWO - Daria Kareva making me dizzy :laugh2:

There's also the trusty fishing rod for working on jumps

Until next time!

Arrgh, I keep forgetting this thread exists. Just wanted to post the following in the Plushy fanfest but it actually fits much better here. Report from Junior test skates in Novogorsk published on fsrussia.ru (with more photos).

1628433197224.png

Evgeni PLUSHENKO, head coach; Dmitry Mikhailov, coach of the school "Angels of Plushenko",
figure skaters Veronika ZHILINA, Anastasia ZININA, Sofia MURAVYOVA, Kirill SARNOVSKY


This year we did not go anywhere, the training camp was held at the ice rink of my school "Angels Plushenko" in "Gorki-10". A lot of work was done in terms of general physical training - crosses, OFP, worked a lot on jumping on the floor, did special exercises on the "spinner" according to the technology of Alexei Nikolayevich Mishin, stretching, dancing... We have a special artificial slide, sand for OFP classes, all the conditions. There is enough ice, we skated a lot, practiced rotations, elements, glided...

Four of our athletes were at the test rides: Kirill Sarnovsky, Veronika Zhilina, Nastya Zinina and Sonya Muravyova. If we talk about programs, we changed both of Kirill's programs. New was directed by Leonid Sviridenko. We gave him that opportunity, and I think he did well, with dignity. Kiryusha himself chose the music. I did not interfere, because I adhere to the point of view that when athletes themselves offer music, images that they feel, then we need to start from this and see whether it will fit or not. Therefore, I gave complete freedom to the guys, Lena Sviridenko. He's a good skater and turned out to be a good director, you might say, good. I'm satisfied.

Kirill's free program is set to music from the series "Game of Thrones". Short – The Beatles " Come Together". Kirill trains quadruple jumps – salchov and rittberger. We didn't put them in at the box office because they're raw so far. We continue to work. Everything is going well. Of course, the programs will be finalized with Dmitry Sergeyevich Mikhailov, our specialists, to hone, but today this is still enough. We listened to all the feedback and comments of the judges and specialists at the box office. We know what to work on. Now we come and continue.

Girls. Veronika Zhilina also has two new programs. Short "Joker", where she portrays a mischievous girl, a bully. We chose this image for a short program in contrast to the arbitrary one in order to diversify styles and images. One is bold, dynamic, danceable, the second is lyrical. The music of the free program is "Love Story". We picked it up together with our headquarters – Lyudmila Nikolaevna Alferova, Masha Stavitskaya.

The short program was set by Seryozha Komolov, but we will still finalize it, this is a common practice. And overall, a good program. Last season, Nika worked with other specialists, this year, since the end of the season, she is fully engaged with me, with her mother Lyudmila Nikolaevna and Masha Stavitskaya.

I invited Masha to my team, because we skated in the same group, I know Masha since childhood, when she was a baby. We have a single technique of Alexey Nikolayevich Mishin. It's very important to me. In addition, Masha from single skating moved to dancing, skated long enough in dancing, has a good command of skating and for me it is valuable, because I have two groups, more than 20 athletes train. I pay more attention to technology, and Dima, the girls are working on sliding, working out programs.

With Veronica, I'm sure we're on the right path. She has a difficult free program - triple axel, three quadruple jumps - salchov, two toeloops, the third quadruple in the second half of the program. We continue to work on other quads. I really like this girl. She's hardworking, she's working. Good job.

Sonya Muravyova. We left the short program "Ne Me Quitte Pas". In my opinion, it is not necessary to change it. Sonia feels the program very much, really lives this image. The girl noticeably increased. For the first time here, in Novogorsk, jumped quadruple salchov. The other day Sonia had a birthday, turned 15 years old, and when we went to the rentals, I told her: "You will make one hundred percent quadruple salchov in Novogorsk." And she really did, she did.
The free program of Sonia was staged by Dmitry Mikhailov - music from the film "The Great Gatsby". The program is good. Well done. Sonia is a great worker. In general, I want to say that all our children "plow", understand where they came, why. I'm pleased that everyone is working.

Nastya Zinina. Passed to us from coach Svetlana Panova. We work together for a short time, several months, but literally in a month we learned a quadruple toeloop, and I also liked this girl in terms of work. She knows how to hear, listens - this is an important point, plows, plows for wear, even sometimes she has to stop a little. Elegant figure skater, beauty, with long lines.

I found the music for the short program "For Smyrni" by the Greek composer Stamatis Spanoudakis first for myself – for a demonstration number in the show. I liked this composition so much that I immediately sunk into my soul. And I said to the athletes: "Whoever will skate well, I will give this music to him." Nastya Zinina just began to skate well, and received a "gift". Nastya has an interesting image in this program: she is a bird who dreams of flying, soaring, but she has a problem with the wing. It torments her. And this moment can be great to beat with modern choreography, and we will finish it, we will highlight it more. At the end of the program, the bird gets rid of the disease, begins to fly... Beautiful story. For Nastya, this is a new image, let's say, a large-scale layer. And it takes time for everything to work out.

As for the arbitrary, it is "Aranjuez" in female vocal performance. Sergey Komolov put the program, but then we worked it all together. The theme of the program is Spain, and the program will be, should be bright. But now it's the beginning of the season. Everybody needs to get out of the world.

Regarding the content, Nastya owns a quadruple toeloop. In the season we plan to jump two quads. We prepare a triple axel, a quadruple salchov. Sonia Muravyova also has a quadruple toeloop and a triple axel. So let's move forward.

To the entire staff of "Angels of Plushenko" I want to say a big thank you for the work done, the season began decently, - said Evgeni Plushenko.

At this point it's just gaslighting.
When skaters of AoP doesn't perform well plushenko is blamed for not training them well. When skaters do perform well he is blamed for taking credit.

I haven't been reading the board much lately (mostly because I can't), so I don't know what people have been saying specifically, but just a general remark:

Some people seem to believe that if they repeat something often enough, it will make it happen.

Let them talk. Talk is cheap.
