Two-time European silver medalists Ekaterina Bobrova and Dmitri Soloviev took the ice dance silver at the Cup of China. Their coach, Alexander Zhulin, was glad to see a warm reaction of Shanghai audience on the performance of his students.

“By the reaction of people, we, frankly, were the first,” Zhulin said Team-Russia 2014.

“I’m extremely happy for Ekaterina and Dmitri. It was the second Grand Prix event they skated clean. They didn’t give anyone a reason to find fault. In Shanghai the situation with judging was very complicated but the guys have shown themselves great. Well done!” Zhulin continued.

Russian coach also expressed the opinion on the performance of his former students Nathalie Pechalat and Fabian Bourzat of France, who took the gold in Shanghai.

“To be honest, I was not impressed with a free dance program of the French duo.” said Zhulin.
