Russian Nationals - Dec. 26-28 with Ted Barton commentary on live stream

This is where we discuss figure skating and skating related items. How did you favourite skaters perform, and so on? However we never speculate on the private lives of skaters, like who might be going out with whom, because that is poison and is not tolerated here. A good guideline is that if it's not publicly announced, in the papers etc. then it's probably best to leave it alone. Is it a gray area? Then write to me and ask.

Ted posted this on Twitter today:
I am honored to be able to announce that I will be covering the Russian National Championships in Krasnoyarsk starting December 26th. I will be commentating for Russian TV 1 on a world wide stream (except Japan). I will post the stream link once it is set up.

That's great but I probably won't watch because it is on in the middle of the night here. Hopefully I will be able to see it later.

Ted hopes that the YouTube videos will be left "up" in the same way that those from the JGP are.

It's just after 7:30 a.m. EST on Dec. 27th - the men and the ice dancers are done but the ladies are just beginning - the live stream: https://t.co/gTUkKhyb8f?amp=1

The live results page: https://www.fsrussia.ru/results/1920/ru ... SEG003.HTM

Medvedeva skates last and will be wearing brand new skates as hers broke after she arrived :(

UPDATE - the replacement skates were "low level" and wouldn't work so Evgenia skated on a tied together, broken skate :(

Sadly, Evgenia had to withdraw from the free skate - further breakdown of her equipment meant that she could do neither the flip nor the lutz (according to Ted Barton) :( She said that the increased risk of injury when skating with the damaged boots that was obvious during the practice today was a reason to withdraw.

She will skate in the Gala but without jumps.

Oh dear...that's really too bad!

I wish I could watch this live, but I can't depart from my sleeping regime or I pay for it. Thanks for the mention of the youtube vids with the copy of the broadcast. I watched the beginning of the Men's FS, but will have to watch the rest later due to all the family celebrations this holiday.

Having been sick since the beginning of last week and still recovering, I didn't lose any sleep for this event but I was able to watch the competitions live that conveniently began about the time I got up each morning. Then I could watch replays as time permitted.

Here's a link to the playlist for all the videos: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... euRZFN5HsU

Maxim Trankov has posted an interview with Ted Barton, done at the time of the Russian nationals, on his VLog: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bGDeeo ... e=youtu.be

The interview was in English and there are Russian subtitles.
