Is Med back home in Russia? With the Covid crisis, I thought she might have flown home. In any case, I look forward to seeing how she does skating with all the young diva's
She's been there for a few months, I believe, since she can't get back into Canada right now. She's training at CSKA with Orser over video and Tarasova assisting in person.
I know a good majority of the attention will be on the ladies but I'm excited to see Stepanova/Bukin and Tarasova/Morozov again! I will be thrilled if S/B keep their MR kiss (I know they're not together but I just delight at the professionalism of it all), though I am worried about the music cut they previewed before Worlds got canceled. I have such a soft spot for T/M and I think they're open to trying different things so I'm hoping for something a little fresh.
No Aliev, Danielian, Stepanova/Bukin, Sinitsina/Katsalapov due to injury
way less excitement from me
Nikita has back problems & they may not take part in the Cup stages
