Sofía VAL and Nikita VITRYANYUK (Russian: Никита ВИТРЯНЮК) are Ice Dancers who represent 🇪🇸 Spain.

Sofía Val was born on 14th November 2004 in Madrid, Community of Madrid, 🇪🇸 Spain.
Nikita Vitryanyuk was born on 6th October 2001 in Moscow, 🇷🇺 Russia.


This is going to be a slightly different Fan Fest. Sofía and Nikita both have previous partnerships in Ice Dance, and both competed in Singles skating before that. Nikita’s whole career is dealt with extensively in his own Fan Fest, and his Ice Dance career is also dealt with in the Fan Fest threads for his former partners (Anastasia Burkina and Maria Miliukova). Sofía’s previous partnership with Linus Colmor Jepsen is dealt with extensively in the Fan Fest for that partnership, as well as in Linus’ own Fan Fest. However, her Singles career is not covered elsewhere in the Fan Fest Forum.

Consequently, rather than having just one “Original Post”, this Fan Fest has two!

The first post (this one) is for the current Ice Dance partnership.
The second post is for Sofía as a Singles skater.

(After initially posting this a day early, I am now re-posting it on the correct day).

Sofía and Nikita will be making their first competitive appearance for Spain at this week's Junior Grand Prix, the Ljubljana Cup.

The Short Dance kicks off today at 15:00:000 CEST (13:00:00 GMT / 14:00:00 BST / 16:00:00 EEST / 16:00:00 MSK). So 8 hours from now.

They will be the 11th partnership to start. So, third partnership to go in Group 3 (and third partnership after the resurfacing).

The Group 3 Warm-Up is due to start at 16:14:10 CEST (14:14:10 GMT / 15:14:10 BST / 17:14:10 EEST / 17:14:10 MSK). So 9h 14m from now.

Sofía and Nikita are due to start at 16:32:20 CEST (14:32:20 GMT / 15:32:20 BST / 17:32:20 EEST / 17:32:20 MSK). So 9h 32m from now.

But, those times may change if somebody that is due on before them withdraws.

Here is the link for the livestream:

Finally got watching the Short Dance from Sofía and Nikita this morning.

ISU Junior Grand Prix Ljubljana Cup Short Dance: Results; Protocols

Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySc9IiO9vqw

Sofía and Nikita finished 6th out of 17 in the SD, with a score of 52.52.

Well, when Nikita's former Cyprus team-mates Angelina Kudriavtseva and Ilia Karankevich debuted their SD for this season, all the talk was about how innovative it was. Well, Sofía and Nikita are also being innovative in their SD!

But first, I want to set the scene. Sofía was wearing a red dress. Nikita was wearing a black leather jacket and trousers. The jacket was open to show a black T-shirt with a red stripe on it (to tie in with Sofía's dress). Suffice to say, they looked the part!

They were skating to a medley of "Staying Alive" by the Bee Gees; "Careless Whisper" by George Michael; and "Daddy Cool" by Boney M. I love all those songs. And I think that may have been why I had a slight problem with the programme. Basically, "Staying Alive" was too short. Yes, it gave them the opportunity to start with some fun choreography before the more serious "Careless Whisper" section. But you were left wanting more. Which spoiled the enjoyment of the start of the "Careless Whisper" section.

And, can I just say, it was nice to see Nikita give a nod to the country he grew up in, using a song by probably the most famous person there is with Cypriot heritage, the late great George Michael.

As you can imagine from the music, it was a fun programme. But, the audience really came alive when, towards the end of the programme, they did synchronised cartwheels! I always assumed they would be amongst the things that are banned from competition programmes, but it seems not.

I thought the skating was great. And so did the judges. Looking at the protocols, there is not a single minus on it. And that is very rare. There was a note in the Deductions box at the bottom that I didn't understand, though:

Violation of choreo restrictions (2 of 10)

But, there were no points deducted, so I don't know what that meant.

As it is their first competition, their score was obviously a new PB.

Sofía and Nikita are at the head of a group of 5 partnerships with close scores, which extends down to Alyssa ROBINSON / Jacob PORTZ (CAN) in 11th position, who are 2.30 points behind them. Their closest challengers are Sofiya LUKINSKAYA / Danil PAK (KAZ), who are 0.29 behind them in 7th.

That said, the partnership directly ahead of them, Eva BERNARD / Tom JOCHUM (FRA) in 5th position, are just 3.91 points ahead. And they are only 1.52 points behind 4th position, Sofiia KACHUSHKINA / Oleg MURATOV (RUS). So, there is a chance that, if they put in a good FS, Sofía and Nikita could move up a couple of places.

Wherever they do finish, it would be a brilliant result for what is their first international competition together.

:cheer: WELL DONE!! :cheer:



The Free Dance is due to start at 17:20:00 CEST (15:20:00 GMT / 16:20:00 BST / 18:20:00 EEST / 18:20:00 MSK). So 10 hours from now.

Sofía and Nikita will be the 12th partnership to start. So, fourth (and last) to go in Group 3.

The Group 3 Warm-Up is due to start at 18:40:50 CEST (16:40:50 GMT / 17:40:50 BST / 19:40:50 EEST / 19:40:50 MSK). So 10h 20m from now.

Sofía and Nikita are due to start at 19:07:50 CEST (17:07:50 GMT / 18:07:50 BST / 20:07:50 EEST / 20:07:50 MSK). So 11h 47m from now.

But, those times may change if somebody that is due on before her withdraws.

Finally got watching the Free Dance from Sofía and Nikita this morning.

ISU Junior Grand Prix Ljubljana Cup Free Dance: Results; Protocols

Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8xICYJ4ZW6g

Sofía and Nikita finished 8th out of 17 in the FD, with a score of 80.69. This meant that they remained in 6th place overall, with a score of 133.21.

That programme was beautiful. Just beautiful. There are no other words for it.

Sofía and Nikita looked stunning in their all black costumes. And they looked so mature. I kept having to remind myself that Sofía is just 16 years old, and Nikita is only a few years older at 19.

Even the skating was so mature. Watching them, you would think they had been together for many years, not a matter of months. It was sublime. I'm not an expert, but I thought it was faultless.

After looking at the protocols for the SP, I commented about there not being a single minus on it. Well, for their FS, Judge #8 gave them -1 for their final 2 elements. Nobody else did, so I don't know what that judge was seeing that nobody else saw.

As you know, I liked Sofía and Linus, and I liked Maria and Nikita. So, I was upset when each of these partnerships split. But, this new partnership looks really good. And I can see them going far in this sport.

:cheer: WELL DONE!! :cheer:



Sofía and Nikita will be back in action at the final Junior Grand Prix of the season, the Cup Of Austria, in just over a week from now.

I really enjoyed their RD. The song combos worked for me, and it was a lot of fun.

Funnily enough, that was actually the thing that surprised me about their other programme. I would never have thought that "Rain In Your Black Eyes" and "Paradise" would work together. But, they did brilliantly! And the transition was so smooth that it was only a while afterwards that I realised "Ah, the song has changed". :p

Looking forward to seeing how they get on in Linz next week, and how they progress as the season goes on.

ISU Junior Grand Prix Cup of Austria Short Dance: Results; Protocols

Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWP-UMidA4c

Sofía and Nikita finished 10th out of 17 in the SD, with a score of 52.02.

Here is what I wrote in the competition thread at the time (the first sentence is an answer to my best friend on the forum, who was wondering why George Michael was in what was otherwise a 70's disco programme):

It's because George Michael is half-Cypriot, and Nikita grew up in Cyprus. Simples! :)

Love the music . Love the costumes. Love the skating. Love them.

Don't love that position. The score is half a point lower than they got in their last Junior GP, yet with 2 to go they are already 3 places below where they finished in the SP there.

HOWEVER, the partnership 3 places above them is less than 1.5 points ahead of them, so there is room to climb up.

:cheer: WELL DONE!!! :cheer:

CaroLiza_fan

After writing that, they slipped down one more position, because the partnership that skated directly after them, Sofya Tyutyunina / Alexander Shustitskiy (RUS), became the overnight leaders.

Looking at the protocols, there were a lot of minuses this time around, compared to no minuses at all in Ljubljana. And, to be honest, I am struggling to work out why. Yes, I saw that one of their sets of Twizzles were out of sync, but that was the only thing I could see that was an issue.

On the positive side of things, there were no choreographic violations this time. So, they must have found out what the thing the judges had issue with was and changed it.

As I said at the time, they are currently at the bottom of a very tight group where 7th to 10th are covered by less than 1.5 points. In fact, 3rd position is just less than 10 points away. So, if they have a good Free Dance, there is definitely an opportunity to move up the table considerably. But, they also have to be careful, as the Estonian partnership in 11th is 3.21 points behind them, and they are leading a tight group of 3 partnerships.

Looking forward to the Free Dance tomorrow morning!

:cheer: WELL DONE!! :cheer:



The Free Dance is due to start tomorrow at 09:00:00 CEST (07:00:00 GMT / 08:00:00 BST / 10:00:00 EEST / 10:00:00 MSK). So 12 hours from now.

Sofía and Nikita will be the 8th partnership to start. So, fourth to go in Group 2 (and last to gobefore the resurfacing).

The Group 2 Warm-Up is due to start at 09:34:10 CEST (07:34:10 GMT / 08:34:10 BST / 10:34:10 EEST / 10:34:10 MSK). So 12h 34m from now.

Sofía and Nikita finished 11th out of 17 in the FD, with a score of 74.70. This meant that they dropped to 11th place overall, with a score of 126.72.

To be honest, this score and position does not do the programe justice.

Here is what I wrote in the competition thread at the time (the first sentence is a reply to a friend of mine, who had commented about the change of music being random):

That was the thing that surprised me when their ISU Bio was created. I would never have thought of putting those two pieces of music together. But, when I actually saw the programme for the first time, I was surprised to find that it worked really well!

Beautiful, just beautiful.

Pity about them getting out of sync in the Twizzles. The same thing happened yesterday, so perhaps something that needs to be worked on.

Otherwise, it was sublime.

:cheer: WELL DONE!!! :cheer:

When you look at the Protocols, it is clear to see that the Twizzles were the main problem. All but two judges gave them -2 , with the others giving them -1 (Judge 9) and -3 (Judge 7). All their other elements had scores ranging from 0 to 1, or 0 to 2.

As it was Nikita that had the problem, my aforementioned friend drew the comparison with another Ice Dancer called Nikita who famously had problems with his Twizzles. But, as another friend pointed out, Katsalapov still did pretty well for himself! ;)

The thing is, although the Twizzles were the problem in both segments this week, they went fine in Ljubljana. So, this is just a temporary issue. Nothing to worry ourselves about.

After the SP, I pointed out that they were 3.21 points ahead of an Estonian partnership that was leading a tight group of 3 partnerships. Well, that Estonian partnership, Solene Mazingue / Marko Jevgeni Gaidajenko, had a very good FS and climbed up to 9th overall, finishing 4.51 points ahead of our kids. That is why Sofía and Nikita dropped a place. They finished up 4.22 points behind the partnership ahead of them, Denisa Cimlová / Vilém Hlavsa (CZE), and 4.79 points ahead of Yulia Lebedeva-Bitadze / Dmitri Parkhomenko (GEO).

All in all, I am very happy with how Sofía and Nikita got on in their first two Junior Grands Prix together.

Sofía and Nikita are still very young for Ice Dancers, both in terms of age and experience in this category. For each of them, this is only their third season of competing in Ice Dance. They are still learning their trade. And considering how good they are already, they are looking like very hot prospects for the future.

I can't wait until the next time we get to see them in action!

:cheer: WELL DONE!! :cheer:
