PostSubject: National Championships in Europe   Mon Jan 07, 2008 1:29 am

In these days there're different National Championships.

Germany
Stefan Lindemann doesn't compete this year. Infact he didn't compete in Grand Prix and he will miss all the season for problems at adductors. Maybe he needs to operate. Look at the article in german: http://de.eurosport.yahoo.com/13112007/30/wm-dritter-lindemann-komplette-saison-absagen.html
I don't know the other german skaters...
...by the way gold medal for men went to Clemens BRUMMER, for ladies to Sarah HECKEN and naturally for pairs to Aljona SAVCHENKO / Robin SZOLKOWY with 214.67 points.

Russia
Oksana Domnina and Maxim Shabalin don't partecipate at Nationals, because of an operation on Shabalin's meniscus. I don't know if they can compete at European Championship.
So gold medal in dance went to Yana KHOKHLOVA / Sergey NOVITSKI.
Yuko KAWAGUCHI / Alexander SMIRNOV won pairs competition and Ksenia DORONINA ladies competition.
New Russian champion for men is Sergei VORONOV. Silver medal went to LUTAI and bronze one to GRIAZEV.
Here you can find result in Russian: http://www.goldskate.ru/RussianNationals/schedule_eng.shtml

Look to Voronov SP...

Do you recognize the music?
I'm so accustomed to see Daisuke's program on this music that it's so strange see an other skater...

Thanks for the news and the link to Voronov's SP, glorydave! I think this is the first time I've seen anyone skate to Piano Concerto #2 for the short program. I'm not fond of the version Voronov is using though. It sounds like it's being played on a harpsichord rather than a piano.

Thank you very much, glorydave!

Poor Lindemann. Sad Sad I wish he can come back soon.

Voronov is a beautiful skater but I agree with glorydave and swandie. Very Happy

Thank you so much for the information, glorydave! Very Happy
Yeah, I know that his program is "Piano Concerto No. 2" by Rachmaninov. As matter of fact, I bought this album by Ashkenazy yesterday. He did great performance!!
Daisuke used his album at FS during 2005-2006 season and he did more intense performance of his strokes and each movements.

Thank you glorydave!! Very Happy

Wow, Voronov did really good!
His jumps are clean and skating is good, but I felt somehow Russian mens have a similar style. Laughing
Actually, Voronov has an injury now, so he couldn't do Flip and Lutz.
I hope he can recover as soon as possible.

Anyway, Voronov also used this suite last season, didn't he?
I remember I saw his SP to Rachmaninov Piano Concerto at 2006 Skate America.

Michelle Kwan used it for SP at 1997-98 and 2001-02. (both Olympic season) She was the Legend!

Michelle skated to Piano Concerto #3, not #2.

I found some news that I'm going to write.

Maxim Shabalin was operated 24th december. Maybe Domnina/Shabalin will compete at Europeans, infact Russian Federation convoked them for this competition.

Also Stefan Lindemann was operated with success. Now he's ok, he wants to start training again. Olympic Games 2010 are his goal.
