The main focus, of course, will be on pair skating: the former titled single skater Alena Kostornaya will present her career in a new form, who, together with her newlywed husband Georgy Kunitsa, will show specialists and spectators how to surprise A very demanding public. No less interesting will be to look at the dance category, where Irina Khavronina will present a new program with her partner David Narizhny. For her sake, she recently left Darío Chirisano.

Figure skating fans will see up to five new girls who moved from junior to senior. Some of them are already well known to the general public. For example, Alina Gorbacheva, who received more attention this summer. True, she is not at all in terms of sporting achievements. Anastasia Zinina had the opportunity to show off the heat on the country’s ice rinks last season, so now she has the right to show her new program to the general public.

But the biggest challenge lies ahead for the debutants of the Plushenko and Tutberidze schools: the best and most talented stars Daria Sadkova and Veronika Zhilina will face each other on the ice. Sadkova suddenly started doing quadruple jumps, ie. She managed to take a quadruple sheepskin coat and also conquered one of the most difficult jumps in figure skating: a triple axle. However, Zilina went further than her opponent and already had, in addition to the aforementioned elements, quadrupling Salchow and Lutz.

For the men, as is usually the case, there will only be three debutantes, unlike the girls. All attention will be focused on Matvey Vetlugin, who last season surprised the most demanding fans with his original skating and the funniest performance of the season. The presence of this talented boy will be a relative replacement for the absent and experienced Michal Kolyada. Matvey is a student of the famous coach Alexei Mishin. The master’s hand is visible mainly in Vetlugin’s excellent choreographic and sliding sketches.


The second newcomer will be Ilya Yablokov. He has a quad loop in his stash, a rare and difficult jump that even recognized men’s singles luminaries avoid doing. The third boy in the village will be Grigory Fedorov. The 18-year-old is a student of coach Svetlana Sokolovskaya. In his arsenal there are many different jumps, the young man does not disdain quadruple lutzes. He obviously will not be out of place in the company of the bison Makr Kondratyuk and Alexander Samarin.
