Apparently this absolutely amazing skater doesn't have a Fan Fest?! This cannot stand

More info to come, but his Elvis Medley FS is a revelation and must be seen to be believed!

Yaroslav's Elvis free skate was my favorite of the evening. I hope placing 4th at Nationals will set him up next season with a Challenger and Skate America host pick.
Unfortunatly he might not be eligible to represent the U.S. next year. Ukraine invoked its 3 year rule for Olympians. Panot last competed at 2018 NHK. If it is calander years he is good if it is seasona he has one more.

The first time we got to see Yaro was @ the Philadelphia International Summer Competition (formerly known as "Liberty"). He was on the podium with Tim Dolensky & Max Aaron. Then we got to see him skate in person @ last year's Nationals. I am thrilled that he skated so well @ US Nationals & am delighted that Todd is coaching him! :love2: :hap10: :cheer:

I admit I had no idea who he was before Nationals. After his performance of his FS I said to myself who is this Elvis and why don’t I know anything about him. Thanks for starting this thread.
You're welcome! He was a huge surprise to me too. I look forward to posting more video links.

I also enjoyed his SP, but it didn't stand out the way Elvis did, so I didn't actually realise it was him. :laugh:

He is very impressive for sure. He would be an interesting guy to sit down and have a beer with. We watched him tonight on the Tara and Johnny show. My wife has some questions. He was basically assured of having a berth on the UK Oly Winter team? Yes no maybe? But he moved to the US and does UK have to release him to skate for the US internationally? Or after while and being a US citizen, he doesnt have to worry about a release?

I was indeed sort of following him casually this past year, through IG postings from his choreographer (that certain someone on my profile pic) - but never had I imagined he would make such a splash at the Nationals :eek::love2::bow: definitely will keep a closer eye on him in the future, and will be cheering loud :hap10:

I decided to check out Yaroslav's Instagram, here's a few choice posts :)

https://www.instagram.com/p/CKe5qfpp1fz - thanking his KnC Zoom supporters. :biggrin: Quality chair dancing Level 4 +5 GOE.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CKRcDz9pO7Q - "Elvis has left the BUBBLE" :laugh: (I actually saw this one a while back and even liked it, but didn't notice there were extra photos, remember kids always swipe right ;).) Yaro now has a US Nats pewter to hang on his wall.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CJSSKRvJGsQ - Yaro posted this for his birthday :) Up close and personal with that epic choreo sequence!

https://www.instagram.com/reel/CH4WxnIJYZk Yaro busts some moves (I'm always amazed by that butterfly jump, how do they do that?)

https://www.instagram.com/p/CFLmxJjJiXL - Yaro is effortlessly chic ;)

https://www.instagram.com/p/CDLAfZSJ6Pw - With the man, the legend, the choreographer - Misha Ge!

Right I better stop before I post Yaro's entire Insta, but he's super fun so check it out.
