What a great public relations campaign by team Brian Orser;  composed by social media management of Evgenia Medvedeva:

My comment on facebook: Tsonio Vasilev’s video is well done; but the title is not ok; It is not war! It will be such nerve-racking event for all competitors: But excuse me figure skating is at first sport; female fair athletes in objective competition on ice: at second something artistic impressions with a lot of inter-subjective interpretations; glamour; rumors and targeted sparks coming from special media interests and groups: Of course figure skaters are not robots; mistakes and falls happen; but if Alina Zagitova: Alena Kostornaya and Alexandra Trusova making no mistakes in their planned programs; no falls; there is no chance of winning the Russian Nationals 2019 for Evgenia Medvedeva:

In 2016 & 2017 Evgenia Medvedeva was the best; a real world champion without doubt; but times has changed in 2018 after her injury and coaching change: And now a lot of inside and outside pressure seem to be overwhelming: Good luck and best wishes to all competitors:
