Uno Shoma and his coach Stephane Lambiel after FS at Worlds 2021
Wait actually Karen is my winner.
Can I call for a redo? I feel like no one deserved to win that event.
But I’m actually so happy for Liza though
On the other hand, as a Canadian…
Madeline Schizas fucking killed it!!!!!!!! So happy for her!
As much as I want success for Aliona, I’m scared for her health. I agree she needs that push to train well however she needs to know when to stop and when it becomes unhealthy. That is how the careers end early.
I don’t really know what to think about the whole Alena situation.
On one hand being with Plushenko was a disaster and a terrible environment but on the other hand I don’t want her to go back to the toxicity that is Eteri’s camp.
I really have mixed feelings about Kamila keeping her Bolero program for the Olympic season. I really dislike the program but maybe it can grow on me? Also pray to god that they change the costume.
I’m not even the biggest fan of Rika but DAMN that was beautiful. Everything about the performance was just gorgeous.
Watch out Russia
Seeing Yuzuru do so well and skate like that actually made me so happy. He is such a breath of fresh air after all this Russian drama.
Also I’m so happy for Shoma, he seems to have found a great coaching team.
WHAT AN EVENT! Honestly so happy for Liza! As much as I love younger skaters I think this is such a big moment for older skaters to show that they can win too. Liza skated well and deserved this win.
Alena is getting better and better but she’s having some under rotation issues this season so let’s hope she fixes that. I also hope that this competition pushes her to get that triple axel.
I felt soooo bad for Sasha. This really wasn’t her day. She either hits the mark really well or completely misses. She really is a go hard or go home skater which is amazing but also can bite her in the back. Also I really don’t know what to think about those spikes…
AHHHHHHH I’M SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!
Best of luck Aliona!
what happened to team tut’s costumes this year???
hope they get it together for the olympic season
Why do I have this gut instinct telling me we will never see Evgenia skate again. After moving back to Eteri and now this injury, I just don’t see this playing out in her favour. I love Evgenia and I’m sad that this might happen but for now we just hope she recovers quickly.
Honestly I really don’t know what to think about Evgenia. I’m still recovering from the shock.
Sasha - honestly it wasn’t too bad, there is a lot of room to improve. I didn’t love the choreo but I didn’t dislike it either. I think her switch to Plushenko was a great move.
Kamila - JUST NO. I’m sorry the bodysuit was just not working, the music was tedious and the program was just boring. The choreo was atrocious, I feel so bad for the girl. Hopefully it will grow on me cause I love Kami.
Anna - FINALLY someone skates to Morning Passages but I also really like No One Ever Called Me That. Not gonna lie I wish she could’ve skated to something more upbeat but the program is pretty. I see a lot of repetitive choreo.
Evgenia - what a fighter. Honestly the cartwheel was my favourite part. I don’t really like the music but I think this program has a lot of potential.
Overall, really no one really had a good outing and no programs really stood for me but I think as the season goes on they will get better.
As much as I am upset we won’t see Aliona today, we all wanted her to work with an international choreographer. And SHAE?? I’m so happy
Here we go…
Anna - her program seemed pretty similar to her last year’s one although the music was pretty. Although her dress looks a lot like Kamis. She has definitely grown and I like seeing those tights inside the boots. I’m looking forward to seeing her FP.
Kamila - I was so happy to see her skating well and skating to Storm. The music is beautiful and I didn’t see too many leg kicks…
Aliona - as much as she was getting so much hate for her program and the state of her jumps, I really like seeing her out on the ice. Yes the music cut was a little awkward but I liked the choreo and I think people will like this program as the season goes on, just like her twilight one. It’s nice to see she likes her new training program and that she is healthy. The jumps will come with time and it was probably so scary skating after Anna and Kamila with Eteri watching.
Evgenia - the program was nice although it looked like she might be injured. Hopefully she can have a good skate tomorrow. Also seeing Brian on ft was so cute.
Sasha - what a brand new sasha. I really like what Plushenko and his team have done for her and skating to Love Story was a good move. Her jumps were great and I can see her trying to emote a bit more. Excited to see her free.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALIONA!!!!
I hope your 17th year is full of success and love.
I am living for Mariah Bell’s ABBA freeskate. I don’t care if it’s a hot mess, it’s what I need.
wtf was that Danny G choreo for Daria, i think that song suits her pretty well but the choreo just plain sucked.
Ok WHAT THE FUCK
Alena is leaving Eteri and going to Plushenko
I have so many thoughts but like WOW. Eteri’s post is just nasty, way to call out everyone who left.
I’m literally speechless. Let’s just hope that hot sergei can give her some decent choreography.
Ok so if she knew that she was leaving them why did she train with them? Like wasn’t it a bit counterintuitive to make programs and then leave?
We finally got some new program content from Sambo-70! Alena’s new program seems really cool, I like the modern vibe for her. Excited to see it in competition!
I love this music swap, it really suits her skating.
