This and That

The Kerrs, Marlie and Alissa Czisny practice for Fashion on Ice.

Volosozhar and Trankov won gold at Nebelhorn.

Bazarova and Larionov finished second.

Denney and Coughlin finished third overall despite a fourth place finish in the free skate.

Mirai Nagasu leads after the short at Nebelborn despite an underrotated Triple Lutz.  At this stage in her career, Mirai shouldn't be having the technical issues that have plagued her for so long.  Her focus and lack of a consistent work ethic have also eroded her potential for years.  With only two spots for Worlds this year, it may be tough for Mirai to claim one of them.  This is a vitally important year for her career.  She is leading the short, but that is always her strength.  Finishing behind Elene Gedevanishvilli would've been embarrassing for our favorite absent-minded skater.

Evgenia Kanayeva continues to dominate RSG Worlds and is expected to sweep the event for the second time.

Jamie Silverstein will be performing with Ice Theater New York this October.

Yuzuru Hanyu won gold at Nebelhorn over Michal Brezina and Stephen Carriere.  Max Aaron landed a Quad Salchow in the free skate.

Polina Shelepen won gold at JGP Romania.

Polina Korobeynikova won silver.

Adopted son Nam Nguyen is currently in fifth at the JGP.


  1. V/T: Blech, looks like Morosov is ruining them. I wonder if Denny/Coughlan can overcome all the bad feeling engendered by the shoddy way he dumped his former partner.

    Hanru: beautiful skater who deserves a better SP than that.

    Polina K: the only one of these over-hyped russian 'babies' that holds my interest (used to like Liza T but not so sure now) at this point. Most of 'em skate like robots.

    Nam N: OMG that was adorable, enjoyed it a lot more than any of the Michael Jackson routines in recent years.

  2. Jamie Silverstein! Eeeee!!!

  3. Wheeeee! Thanks for the post of Jamie skating!!
