Loved her skate today! The Tron/Fifth Element soundtrack is so energetic, and she really attacks that step sequence. Was she the only one to get a level 4 for it? At any rate, she made it fun to watch. Good luck to her in the FP tomorrow!
They competed on the 4th stage of the russian cup this week and did farly well all things considered. There where certenly areas that still need work and you can tell she is uncomfterable with some of the pairs elements. But the jumps look great skating looks overall great (despite some awkward moments when they seem to be searching for eachother). Lifts and twist look surprisingly good enen if the entries and exits are a bit cautious.
The pair spin in the free was one example of where more work is deffenetly needed. It was quite painful to watch actually. I also think throw jumps are a bit of a struggle for her since she seems like she doesnt quite know how to check a jump with so much extra air compared to her normal ones.
Rumor has it that Vasilieva/Volodin have split and she is coming back to singles. It would be a shame as I think that she is great in pairs and there is clearly an issue if they are to split so soon. It is being discussed in the Russian pairs forum, though I hope it is just a rumor and isn't true.
