sometimes one figure skater appears so http://cs540104.vk.me/c625622/v625622809/134ea/YedgUQjcAGE.jpg
at first he wants to seem mysterious
http://cs623328.vk.me/v623328586/1185d/BPWRGBNdrgQ.jpg
but something pushes him out on ice http://cs540104.vk.me/c625622/v625622809/134d8/qJKltHyrRRY.jpg
and obstacles don't keep waiting themselves
http://cs540104.vk.me/c625622/v625622809/134cf/8h_tS3wrBZE.jpg
so the skater falls
http://cs623328.vk.me/v623328586/118a3/-ap_xG3ojlU.jpg
but nothing can break him - any normal figure skater is capable to slide on ice on a back too
http://cs623328.vk.me/v623328586/11856/ELzkldArwS8.jpg
all secret of that skater - is in his magic skates, they are capable to find a support
http://cs540104.vk.me/c625622/v625622809/13472/Vbw30xi5F1A.jpg
though sometimes absolutely unexpectedly the skates get out of control
http://cs540104.vk.me/c625622/v625622809/1346a/FlcCRkrrmWo.jpg
and then it is important not to mix buttons on the control panel
http://cs623328.vk.me/v623328586/11848/VdDV4W5GWI0.jpg
but suddenly enlightenment comes - the skater is showing on TV
http://cs623328.vk.me/v623328586/11895/ElpvmFntqfE.jpg
in such cases he makes a serious face
http://cs623328.vk.me/v623328586/11319/FGhdlWx4vYU.jpg
and disappears
http://cs540104.vk.me/c625622/v625622809/134c6/eTQFhlli7VQ.jpg

The story of Serafima Sakhanovich, who had left her native city to learn how to win
Serafima [Sima] Sakhanovich was born in St. Petersburg and up to the age of seven years she was not interested in figure skating. Mom, a former figure skater, guarded her daughter from unnecessary injuries and damages, so the rink long remained nothing more than a simple winter fun.
"Mommy was engaged in figure skating professionally. Not very long until she broke his collarbone. Surely she was thinking about how to send me to FS section too, but she was afraid that I also could to break something to myself. I was put on skates early enough at the age of four years, but I went to ice under the supervision of parents only. When I started going to school, my father decided that I need something to occupy. We just moved to a new place, and there was only a professional ice rink next to our new home. Mom gave up. We came to register and they tell me that it's too late to start at the age of seven years. But Alina Grigoryevna (Alina Pisarenko, the first coach of Serafima Sakhanovich, a student of Alexei Mishin. PROsport) despite everything decided to risk"
Serafima had to learn a standard set of jumps and elements twice faster than the others. As a result, by 11 years she learned all triple jumps and announced herself for a first time when she won in the final of the Cup of Russia [not to be confused with the Rostelecom Cup]. Then there were victories at the Junior Grand Prix stages.
And they breathed sigh of relief in FS Federation of St. Petersburg: now they have not only Liza Tuktamysheva. However, it soon became clear that the city can’t afford two champions at once. And on the eve of this season Serafima moved to Moscow. All of her friends trained in the school of "Sambo-70" at Etery Tutberidze’s group, so Sima joined them.
"I had no sponsors there. Also I didn’t want to shift all expenses on parents. Besides, I was not pleased with second place at the World Junior Championships. I felt that I’m rolling down, it seemed that all my rivals continued to grow and I stayed at the same level both on character and on complexity of programs. I also wanted to grow up. At home with my parents it would turn out not so quickly. Of course, I wasn't released absolutely alone. Now my mother lives with me. Dad stayed in St. Petersburg to look after our big family. He works, of course. Mom here, doesn’t work. I work for her. "
Moving really did Sima good, she won two stages of the Junior Grand Prix, and in the series finale she conceded to her classmate Zhenia Medvedeva a little bit. But she perceives the second place not so painfully already as the one that happened a year ago at the Junior Worlds.
"I have a transition period now. I’m changing. I grow. I need some time to get used to “new myself”. Now I need to spend more efforts to lift myself into the air. I need to work on sliding. The following season, I would be allowed to take part in senior competitions, and there it must be perfect. Thus I shouldn't forget about emotions. It is necessary all the time to look at the judges, to smile, to wink, to flirt even. You shouldn’t be an insensitive robot on ice"
About school "I used to always come to the first three lessons. Now I don’t have time for it. I appear there only on Fridays when I have a day off on a skating rink, but for the whole day. I take a task for the whole week. Teachers understand everything. However, recently there was a nasty situation. They forgot to give me a task of algebra and geometry. They came round three days before the end of the quarter. I got 77 numbers [of tickets] at the same time. I did the job in the morning before training, did between workouts, did on a bike during hitch. I consulted. And the teacher could not believe that I solved all by herself and gave me a mark three [on a five-point scoring system]"
About hobby "I like to do massage. When I was little, my father didn’t trust anyone and always did me massage by himself. As a result, he learned so well that when I clogged muscles dad always rescued and I remembered his movements. Now I get no worse. Strong hands, I guess. I do massage to the entire team. No one complained yet"
About poems "I like poetry collections. I like to listen to them, I have a whole folder of the phone with the verses. Even yesterday I decided to listen to bedtime of Asadov’s poetry to calm down a bit and finally I thought of something and fell asleep only in the morning. I’m very fond of Asadov and many of his poems I know by heart. I myself don’t write verses. My rhyme doesn't develop. Only blank verse sometimes turns out"

I really really admire all these girls from Russia. They work so hard to achieve their dreams (and what's the worst thing, many of them will never even go to the Olympics). Liza moved from her hometown to St. Petersburg, Julia moved to Moscow from Ekaterinburg, Sima moved and left her family at the pretty young age.I know that it is not just figure skating also other sports, I just want to say I also do figure skating, but just as a hobby, I could never be able to gave up everything for it (they're giving up their families), to work that hard. But these girls are amazing. They go to the rink and skate everyday, for many hours. Everyday, weekends, whole summer. I think that's the reason why Russia has so many strong juniors-they're just working , that's all.

And I have one question...She says she had 77 numbers(tickets)at the same time, and did job before and between practice and teacher didn't believe she did all herself and gave her 3....I think I know the scoring system in Russia(5 is the best 1 is the worst?)but I still don't udnerstand what did she mean with these 77 numbers (tickets)...maybe it is some different system, maybe it is my bad english or I just can't think with my head. Anyway could someone please explain it to me?

what did she mean with these 77 numbers (tickets)
examination tickets (cards) which usually contain two or three questions on the subject

the explanation - because it is about the exact sciences, possibly they also contained tasks which needed to be executed

Serafima Sakhanovich: "It is necessary to overcome itself, to skate both programs without blots"
07 of February, 2015
The prize-winner of the junior World Cup and the final of the Grand Prix Serafima Sakhanovich won bronze on the Russian JuniorNats in Yoshkar-Ola. After the performance she admitted that is happy that she got to the three of prize-winners.
"The short program somehow doesn't go in this season. After it there is necessary by heroic efforts to pull out themselves on a pedestal in FS. So far to me it is hard to say why it occurs. We even put the cascade in the first half, but all the same not that yet.
It is possible because here I rode the new skates. We after the final of the Grand Prix passed to new couple because those turned into "rags". We regretted we didn't change them before the final of the Grand Prix. Because I rolled the skates quickly enough...
I will work. If I get on the junior World Cup, it is necessary to ride purely. Without options. It is necessary to overcome itself, skating both programs without blots. And in general, for the third time on the championship of Russia I get to the three is a good result", - Serafima Sakhanovich told.
