Let’s literally travel to Russia and see how National teams have spent their summer between intensive training and holidays!

Team Paradise
Senior Team Paradise had amazing June: skaters have been traveling a lot, spending time with their families and friends! In July, the athletes came back to training. As the tradition goes, they spent the last month at their annual practice camp in Yoshkar-Ola. The triple World Champion has worked really hard and successfully completed the creation of both programs.

By the way, Team Paradise has also announced recently on Instagram that they’ll participate in the following international competitions: Asia Trophy (HKG), French Cup (FRA) and Finlandia Trophy that will take place in just one month in Finland.

Crystal Ice
Like a real family, Crystal Ice Senior and Crystal Ice Junior spent their summer together. They started training on the 3rd of July at their home ice rink in Moscow. On the 7th of August, they arrived in the Nizhniy Novgorod region for their summer practice camp. The skaters told us that they were actively preparing for the new season. 

Junior team “Junost” had the most intensive summer. Like the other Russian teams, they started with a rest at the beginning of summer and resumed immediately practicing in July. From the 16th to the 30th, they had been training in Orenburg. Junost went then to Ural Gifted Education Center “Golden Section” for their second camp. Now, the summer is over, but Junost has one more annual camp in another Gifted Education Center - “Sirus” in Sochi. They are training there at the moment! 

The competitive season 2019-2020 is so close and we all are looking forward to seeing new amazing programs of the Russian teams! Undoubtedly, they prepare something special. So, keep in touch!
