In Moscow took place a test skating performances of the Russia’s national figure skating team members. This is a traditional event which every year organizes the Figure Skating Federation of Russia. Top skaters presented their programs of the new season
Among the participants were the well-known names as Evgeni Plushenko, Tatiana Volosozhar/Maxim Trankov, Ekaterina Riazanova/Ilia Tkachenko, Alena Leonova, Ksenia Makarova,Yuko Kavaguti/Alexander Smirnov, Vera Bazarova/Yuri Larionov and others.
The Russian team is very seriously preparing for the new season. All programs claim to the highest level of skating and some of them, I think, skating fans will review many times. Why? Because some of these performances are the real art form on the ice. I would like to draw your special attention to the performance of ice dancing couple Ekaterina Riazanova/Ilia Tkachenko. It's just breathtaking…
