It is a huge problem for many countries including Russia.

Junior nats will start in 30 minutes. Going to watch it online.

This is what my husband's Dad made his money on. Gambling. He wasn't noble, his Mom' s side is noble, not his Dad's. He was involved in setting up gambling outfits when gambling was illegal in this country and then — boom! — it went legal. And he and his friends had everything set up — networks, clients, etc. So they made a killing (made a lot of money) — straight away. But unfortunately he himself passed away (died of a heart attack) at Derby horse races, when his own horse was racing. We still have tons of photos of that horse, one is hanging up on the wall in our house. That was when my husband was only 4 years old.

I think it was a fair judgement for both boys and girls —

These two are amazing .

By the way — a bit off topic, the winner's name is Daniil and the third place boy's name is Arthur. This brought back memories. I actually love the name Arthur, cause it is an old English Celtic name and it means «bear». I wanted to call my littlest son Arthur, but we decided on Daniel, cause we were trying to choose our kids' names in such a way, that there is a clear equivalent in both English and Russian (and with mine — Alexander, Victoria, Daniel — all three names exist in both languages), even though the year when Daniel was born — 2010 — it was the most popular boy';s name in London. So there are three Daniels in his class for instance (including him obviously)..

Thanks for sharing it with me. Speaking of memories. I remeber watching Medvedeva live at Rostelecom cup two years ago, people were showereing her with toys and flowers. And this boy Daniil Samsonov was one of the kids who collected them. He was so small I thought he is 7.
Btw, he won free skate and became Russian junoir champion a few hours ago. He has empressive skating skills for someone so young.


Funny thing little Daniil won over this guy - Alexey Erokhov (19 yo, 2018 World Junior champion)

Alexandra Trusova was off the podium in the short program because she made a mistake in the combo, but she completely recovered in her free skate.
Clean free skate with 2 quads (her first two jumping passes are 4T3T and 4T, it gave her huuuge advantage). Sasha isn't best in music interpretation and skating skills, but her technical score is monstrous (92.5 - a pretty good score for top senior men).
Alena won't beat that, probably. Anna Scherbakova can do it if she is perfect.

Is it still going on — the championship? I thought it was finished and Alena already won.
Yes, this Trusova character is exceptionally gifted. Those jumps were mesmerizing. Is she the one who had a lap dog at the interview?

Yes, Trusova had a dog at the interview. She also took that dog to Russian junior nationals






Final result is a sum of short program and free skate program scores.
Alena won short program but Trusova won overall.
Alena was wonderful as usual

She lost by a few points to Trusova. Anna made a mistake on the quad lutz.
Final results
1 Trusova 233.99
2 Kostornaya 230.79
3 Scherbakova 223.97

Next big competition is junior worlds

You may also like Ksenia Sinitsina. She is coached by Svetlana Panova (Eteri's main rival among Russian coaches). Ksenia took the 4th place

You know when I was a kid — I wanted to have a dog so much, but my Mom wouldn't let me. She was so busy working, etc. — she thought I wouldn't look after it — as I was busy too — studying at school and music school, etc. The first time I got a dog was when John got me a Scotty - remember I told you, but the timing was bad — I was going through a messy divorce, etc., Since then we've had cats only. Trusova looks lovely on that pic with the dog, but those dogs are not nice looking to be honest and snappy little bastards. But fashionable to have.
The other day I walked into a shop — our local grocers — and there was a woman there with a pitbull -these are horrible dogs — I mean — truly horrific — if they attack you — there is no way out, cause the way they were bred is they lock their jaws, etc. They are actually a forbidden breed in the UK to have. But some people somehow still have them. Even though there were lots of cases when they killed little kids and babies in those families who have them https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6347315... Or even their owners.

So the dog was fine with all the others at the grocers, but as soon as I walked in — the dog started barking like mad and it took three men to help the woman dog owner to stop it from breaking off the lead to have a go at me, I felt like running away but I didn't. And then I spoke to the owner of the shop and we both thought of reporting it to the police but we didn't.

Yeah, of course — sorry I forgot. They have two programmes — one is skill based, the other is more kind of artistic.

She is very nice and it is good news that there is a healthy competition amongst coaches as well.

Seriously, I can't understand people who buy pitbull. I had laikas. They are very friendly and clever dogs.



They lived in a countyside, laika shouldn't live in a flat.

Unfortunately, competition among Russian coaches isn't always healthy. Sometimes a talented skater has to leave his coach because if he wants to succed he has to go to more influential coach.
As an example, one talented skater Anastasia Gubanova had to leave her coach and move to CSKA because she was always lowballed in Russia. She regressed after that, unfortunately.

She could be another Alena Kostornaya but it didn't happen
Here is her best performance (before transfer to CSKA).
