The fight for that third Russian spot will be interesting, because it's open and I think this new team could be one of the contenders. They are really promising.
In the men's field, Artem Kovalev from Angels of Plushenko is in 1st place, he stayed on his feet (though his 4S was UR). Ignatov's skate wasn't that good like at test skate, he lost balance in the spread eagle before 3A and he sinlged it, I think he also lost his balance a bit during StSQ. Roman Savosin jumped both 4S and 4T but he fell on 3A and got two calls, he's in third now.
