Goodbye to Italian pair Berton/Hotarek, welcome to Marchei/Hotarek?

Stefania Berton and Ondrej Hotarek (Reuters)
And again sad news for figure skating fans, but especially for the Italian team. The Italian pair Berton/Hotarek does no longer exist. Rumors about their separation were already spreading in may, but then everything was hushed-up. 

Maybe hoping in the two skaters changing their mind, the Italian federation did not notify the ISU of Berton/Hotarek's separation and the pair was included in the list of entries for the next Grand Prix.

www.valentina-marchei.com
Rumors want Ondrej Hotarek seeking a new partnership with Italian champion Valentina Marchei. Notwithstanding, it is not clear if Valentina Marchei is supposed to compete in both single and pairs competitions, or to choose pairs over single. Nothing is known about Stefania Berton's future projects, but it is likely she will pursue her competitive career with another partner.

Frankly, considering the problems intrinsic the formation of a new pair, and a question of age, the chances that the new allegedly pair formed by Marchei/Hotarek will be competitive, and competitive soon, are slim. But with all the splitting and changing of late, well never say never.

Anyway, we wish all the best to all of them.

Intervista con il pattinatore italiano Ivan Righini

Qualche giorno fa Ryan Stevens, autore del blog Is That A Skate Guard In Your Pocket Or Are You Happy To See Me?, ha realizzato un'interessante intervista con il pattinatore Ivan Righini. Vi ripropongo, di seguito, una traduzione italiana di questa intervista che sono sicura interesserà i molti fan del campione italiano.

Ivan Righini -  Is That A Skate Guard In Your Pocket Or Are You Happy To See Me?
I sei anni in cui ha gareggiato per la Russia facevano presagire bene per Ivan Righini, che però non era ancora Ivan Righini all'epoca. Prima di decidere, durante la stagione 2013/2014, di rappresentare l'Italia, la nazione d'origine di sua madre, e all'anagrafe ancora Bariev, Ivan ha vinto due titoli Juniores ai nazionali russi e i suoi migliori piazzamenti sono costituiti da un sesto posto ai nazionali russi in categoria senior e un settimo posto ai mondiali Juniores del 2008.
Dopo aver adottato il cognome da nubile della madre, Ivan Righini ha incontrato un immediato successo come rappresentante della sua nuova patria, vincendo i campionati italiani assoluti al suo primo tentativo, nonché la Bavarian Open, e piazzandosi tredicesimo, la scorsa stagione, ai suoi primi mondiali in categoria senior.
Un pattinatore molto solido dal punto di vista tecnico, Ivan Righini sembra avere davanti a sé un brillante futuro nel pattinaggio artistico e credo che sentiremo senz'altro parlare di lui in futuro. Ivan ha trovato il tempo per parlare del suo cambio di nazione, dei suoi primi mondiali, del suo futuro in questo sport e molto altro in un intervista che vi piacerà.

Q: Hai vinto due titoli Juniores, quattro medaglie nel Junior Grand Prix e hai gareggiato a livello internazionale per la Russia per qualche anno prima di decidere di ottenere la doppia cittadinanza e rappresentare l'Italia, la nazione d'origine di tua madre. Che cosa ti ha portato a prendere questa decisione? Ed è stato un processo facile o difficile?

A: È stata piuttosto dura. C'è stato un periodo in cui avrei voluto smettere di pattinare, ma poi mi sono detto che sarebbe stato stupido smettere dopo aver pattinato così tanto tempo per niente. Ho preso la decisione in maniera improvvisa e ora sono felice di rappresentare l'Italia.




Q: Ai mondiali 2014 in Saitma, Giappone, ti sei classificato tredicesimo, con un'ottima performance. Qual'è la cosa di cui sei più orgoglioso della tua prima partecipazione ai mondiali?

A: Sono veramente orgoglioso di me stesso perché sono riuscito a controllare i miei nervi davanti a un pubblico così numeroso! Durante il programma corto ero veramente shoccato, perché non avevo mai partecipato a una competizione così importante e quindi è stato uno stress. Ma durante il libero mi sono sentito veramente a mio agio. Ho fatto tutto ciò che potevo, ad eccezione di un piccolo errore, e ho pattinato con facilità. Quindi credo che il mio debutto sia andato bene!



Q: Guardando alla prossima stagione e al futuro, quali sono i tuoi obiettivi nello sport e come ti allenerai per raggiungerli?

A: I miei obiettivi per la prossima stagione sono inserire il quadruplo in entrambi i programmi, competere ad un livello elevato e rientrare sicuramente tra i primi dieci ai mondiali e tra i primi cinque agli europei. Inizierò presto a costruire i nuovi programmi.

Q: Qual'è il tuo piatto russo preferito? E quello italiano?

A: Piatto russo? Penso i pel'meni e il boršč. Per quanto riguarda quello italiano, mi piace la pasta e la pizza e adoro i frutti di mare!

Q: Qual'è il salto o la combinazione più difficile che tua abbia mai completato?

A: Il salto più difficile che abbia mai tentato (molto tempo fa) è stato il quadruplo loop e la combinazione più difficile è stata un triplo axel / triplo toe / doppio loop.

Q: Una cosa che la maggior parte delle persone non sanno su di te?

A: Sono un ragazzaccio!



Q: Se tu potesti cambiare qualsiasi cosa del modo in cui il pattinaggio viene valutato, cosa cambieresti?

A: In realtà mi piace come stanno le cose. Forse i punteggi erano troppo alti l'ultima volta.

Q: Se potessi incontrare un pattinatore che ancora non hai conosciuto, chi sarebbe e perché?

A: Ho già incontrato i miei idoli, Alexei Yagudin e Stephane Lambiel. Mi piacerebbe incontrare almeno una volta Philippe Candeloro, perché adoro il modo in cui pattinava.

Q: Chi sono i tuoi tre pattinatori preferiti in assoluto e perché?

A: Alexei Yagudin è sempre stato il mio idolo. Il modo in cui Stephane Lambiel pattina è semplicemente fenomenale e Patrick Chan pattina benissimo.

Q: Descrivi la tua giornata perfetta lontana dalla pista: dove andresti e cosa faresti?

A: Inizierei con il non svegliarmi troppo presto, farei una bella colazione e poi una passeggiata per il centro di Mosca per incontrare i miei amici e chiacchierare con loro. Poi tornerei a casa, comprerei da mangiare e guarderei dei film.

Q: Qual'è la cosa che ami di più del pattinaggio artistico?

A: Io amo il pattinaggio artistico! Amo il pubblico e sentire come mi sostengono. Amo esibirmi!

Interview with Italian skater Valentina Marchei

Valentina Marchei - www.edeaskates.com/
I'm sure many of you, like me, are big fans of Italian champion Valentina Marchei. You'll be happy to know, than, that  A Voce Alta recently published an interview with the Italian figure skater. The original Italian version of the interview is accessible on their site. Or, if you prefer, you can read a translated English version below.

____________

Q: Sport and life: do they go on in parallel or they cross each other?

VM: Sport is a school of life experience, it teaches you to respect schedules, hard work, and your opponents. Besides, if it becomes a work for you, as it has been for me for quite some time now, you're able to travel the world and strike up true friendships, made of passion and common goals to achieve. In my future life, my life after figure skating, I'll make good use of the lessons this rigorous sport taught me, above all, being able to face challenges, being able to lose and get up again, even in hard times.

Q: Why did you choose single above pairs skating?

VM: I choose to skate alone and not in pair because I'm an individualist and ambitious person, and I like to win alone.

Q: Do you like to be the centre of attention? Are you an exhibitionist? During training you seems an ordinary and shy young girl, while during a competition you become a sexy and intriguing woman. So who is Valentina Marchei?

VM: Valentina isn't an exhibitionist, neither she want to be the centre of attention. She loves very much her sport, and, only when she skates, she loves to show off, that is interacting with the spectators. Skaters are actors on the ice. When I build my competitions programs, I look for music that told a story and trough which I can express my feelings. Valentina is a simple girl, who loves to be with her friends; it's only on the ice that I change, I play a role.

Q: Why did you go abroad to train?

VM: It came a moment when I realized I was at a point of no return, and, if I wanted to make progress, I had to find spurs elsewhere. I looked for a coach and a rink with skaters more skilled than me who would be able to help me raise the bar. 

Q: What do you think of figure skating in Italy and what would you suggest? Any ideas or comparison with other countries?

VM: Figure skating in Italy is in stalemate. The best athletes train abroad and the new generation would need breath of fresh air. I have some ideas, but I don't know if when I retire I'll be able to put them into practice. Anyway, I'd like to put my abroad experience in the service of the younger skaters, right here.

Q: What prospects and objectives do you have for your career?

VM: Since I've improved in the last years, I'd like to go on, till my body allows me, providing young skaters athletically better off won't turn me away from the rink. In addition to some other Italian title,  it's been long I've been dreaming to win an European medal. Last year it was really close.

Q: Is it winning really essential to feel satisfied? Which spurs do you find competing in a tight spot, for example knowing that your skills won't earn yo a medal?

VM: It is always the love and the passion for the sport you play that make you go on, even if you know your limits. Not only medals can give satisfaction. Also a well skated competition is a good reason for wanting to skate even better next time...

Q: When you'll turn professional, what you'll dedicate yourself to?

VM: I have many projects for the future. First of all, I want to graduate and than to take a master abroad. Then, I'd like to open a school, so as to pass to younger skaters the passion that brought me thus far.

Q: Would you advise young people to take up figure skating? If so, why?

VM: Gliding on the skates makes you feel free, like a butterfly that flies gently. Besides, if a girl loves music, with figure skating she will learn to perform it. It is a really elegant sport, that makes the body more harmonic.

Q: Does a skater live on this sport?

VM: Unfortunately not, even if you win a lot, you can't live on figure skating, unless you are the Korean Olympic champion...

Q: Last question of this interview, there's something you want to tell us?

VM: After the Team Event, in Sochi, I was contacted by the CH2, the composers of "Nyah", my long program's music. I daresay that they've been struck by how I performed that music on ice, insomuch as they asked me if I want to make a video with them. It's exciting! I've been invited to Sorrento  as well, after that people of the region have been struck by the fact I choose "Torna a Surriento" for my Olympic short program. I achieved to realize what I wish to happen on the ice, that is engage spectators, interact with those before me, and making them fall in love with my sport!

Interview with French skater Bruno Massot

Bruno Massot - Patinage artistique l'équipe de france
If you're a fan of Bruno Massot, you'd be glad to know that Patinage artistique l'équipe de france published an interesting interview with the French skater. You can read the original French version of the interview on their page. Or, if you prefer, you can read a translated English version below.
____________

Q: If you hadn't succeeded in figure skating, what would you have liked to do?

BM: If not figure skating... I play the piano, so maybe I'd have become pianist. But I'm an active type, so I'd have played another sport for sure. Or maybe I'd have become actor!

Q: When you're really tired, what do you prefer? A good film? Music? Or a massage?

BM: When I'm tired, I like to watch a good film or listen to good music, with a massage, of course!

Q: What's your cult book?

BM: A book? What's that? (he laugh)

Q: What's your cult film?

BM: Mmm... Inglorious bastards.

Q: What's your best journey?

BM: Up to now, it's Japan.

Q: What's utter happiness for you?

BM: A desert island, with a boat, my girlfriend and a Porsche!

Q: When is the last time you cried?

BM: This morning, when I waked up without my girlfriend, who's away...

Q: When is the last time you had the giggles?

BM: The last time I had the giggles... Mmm, I laugh every day, so I don't know, really.

Q: What's the main trait of your character?

BM: I never throw in the towel.

Q: And the trait of which you're the least proud of?

BM: Sometimes I get on edge a bit easily...

Q: What's you're greatest fear?

BM: Spiders. Or getting hurted.

Q: What's your favorite color?

BM: Night blue.

Q: What's your motto?

BM: I never had a motto.

Q: What's the song you whistle under the shower?

BM: Bah, I whistle what's on my cellphone.

Q: What's the object you take everywhere with you?

BM: My skates.

Q: Do you sponsor any association?

BM: No, I don't.

Q: What's your anti stress technique?

BM: To fight the stress, there's nothing better than listening to music for me.

Q: Do you have a model in figure skating?

BM: A model? I really never had one... There were skaters I loved, but I don't want to resemble anyone! I want to be stronger!

Q: To which skaters of team France you're closer?

BM: We're all close, no preferences.

Q: Do you have any odd habits, before a competition or a gala?

BM: Before going to skate or warming-up, I always take a coffee.

Q: Do you want to say something to your fans?

BM: To my fans, thank you very much for your support and encouragement. I work very hard and it's encouraging to have supporters.

On Simone Vaturi's new partner and Savchenko/Massot's partnership

Lorenza Alessandrini & Simone Vaturi FB page

Some days ago came the news that Russian skater Ekaterina Riazanova split with partner Ilja Tkachenko. At almost the same time, Italian fans got some equally bad news: Lorenza Alessandrini  decided to quit figure skating, leaving her dance partner Simone Vaturi

Last weekend, Ekaterina Riazanova came to Milan for a skating test with Simone Vaturi. The test was satisfactory, and rumors say the new dance couple will skate for Italy, coached by Paola Mezzadri and Roberto Pellizzola. In theory, the freshly formed couple could compete in the 2015 European Championships in Stockholm, from the 26 of January. Indeed, Riazanova's last international competition was last January, so if the couple can reach the minimum technical scores needed during an international competition next January, there wouldn't be any problem for them to compete at Euros.

In late March, Aljona Savchenko announced she'd continue her career after her partner Robin Szolkowy's retirement, and the two said their farewell to their fans with a last exhibition during the show Imagine on Ice.



Savchenko formed a new partnership with French skater Bruno Massot, but doubts remain on which country they will skate for. Indeed, the French federation does not intend to release Massot, and the German federation is still evaluating the possibility to release Aljona.

On Ilinykh/Katsalapov splitting and a new partner for Larionov

Ilinykh/Katsalapov with coach Morozov © figureskating-online.com

Yet another coup de théâtre from Russia: after rumors about Ilinykh/Katsalapov splitting, repeated "no comment" from the people concerned and Piseev's emphatic niet, Ilinykh/Katsalapov HAVE split, according to sport-express.ru.

Nikita will skate with Victoria Sinitsina, while Elena will skate with Ruslan Zhiganshin. How will end this story? Will see next season...

Bazarova/Larionov © dtnews

In the mean time it seems confirmed that Bazarova/Larionov split following this season disappointing results. Yuri will stay with Nina Mozer and will skate for Russia with Estonian skater Natalja Zabijako, but it seems the Estonian federation isn't happy at all with this arrangement and not inclined to give its consent. Vera Bazarova may have already found a new partner, but his name has still to be announced.

In both cases, to be continued...




Vera Barazova's new partner has been announced by the FFKKR, and it's Andrei Deputat, former partner of Vasilisa Davankova. Bazarova and Deputat will be coached by Oleg Vassiliev.
