Lol.
He in the army now, ooooowwoooooowww he in the army,
now.

If some of them is competing for CSKA sport club - I understand. CSKA athletes have officer ranks and even are getting paid monthly salaries according to their military ranks. They can quit their sport career after age of 30 and be eligible for cushy military pension. They also have a right to train in any CSKA facility across the country. Every little city had some sort of CSKA gym, athletic field, small stadium, some primitive ice rink. So it's convenient. They also have the best facilities and medical stuff. CSKA facilities usually not accessible for public and even for low-level military, just mid-level and top ranks of officers, who supposed to keep themself in shape (some new rules in Russian military), come in late in the evening after work, mostly to work with weights or run in the gym.

Athletes loves CSKA facilities, they are always in top shape and meticulously well maintained and they are free of charge available 24/7 (mostly). Soloviev (as in B/S ice dance) took an oath few years ago as well.

So I guess the youngsters are just going into some sort of short term training, a week long camp. They will be back in a 2 weeks or so.

They probably learn general stuff like how to recognize military ranks, how to make their beds, salute and greet other officers, learn about ceremonial protocols and dress code on official events, like receiving state awards ceremonies or behaving at officers' balls (balls like a annual dance nights for officers and their ladies :) ) and probably other boyscout stuff.

Here in US we call it: ROTC. We have a lot of basic military skills training in almost every university. Usually not too popular among young university students. Depends on the state and the city.. :)

Rukavicin's group isn't part of CSKA. They are in New York (I guess without Anton, since he goes into the army in a week? if Google Translate is right). Probably the same place they went last year for a training camp.

Yeah, I imagine he will just do the quickie course like Kovtun did a couple years ago.

It looks pretty sure than one of the guys of the Team Rukavicin will make his GP debut at CoR. Basically the 3rd russian at the CoR will be either Gorshkov or Shulepov. There aren't really other choices.

If one count that as one spot then Team Rukavicin got 5 GP events total.

Alena - 2
Sima - 1
Maria - 1
Anton or Gordei - 1

I would say that is pretty decent amount of GP spots.

Gordei Gorshkov has been assigned to CoR. CoR will be his GP debut.

Gordei's name has disappeared from the CoR entry list, and Maria Artemieva is no longer listed for Skate Canada. Wonder what's going on. :confused:

I'd really like to see Anton Shulepov get CoR. He has so much talent but it seems like he barely competes.

Now Gordei is back.

Shulepov will skate at the Cup of Nice this week.

Team Rukavicin has done really well at the Russian Junior Championships. Dima won as expected but what was unexpected was that Makar Ignatov was 4th. He will most likely make his JGP debut next season. I wonder if he will have a quad by then. By the way, he didn't skate last season or the season before that, so, he has had quite a comeback.

Where is Makar?? Why there is no info about him?
I only saw pics of him while he was giving prizes to skaters after a competition.

I don't know but most likely he was injured and that is why he hasn't skated yet. In any case he was named as subs for the last JGP events which should mean that he isn't injured any longer.
