The season is about to really kick off, and that means that Team Russia is debuting their programs in public for the first time this season. After taking last season off, Olympic champions Tatiana Volosozhar/Maxim Trankov are back fresh off their wedding, and with new tricks! They debuted a throw triple flip in their short program in Sochi. And though we haven't heard about any quad elements from them, adding the flip to their repertoire will allow them to keep up with the technical difficulty that popped up during the past season.
Fellow Olympic champion Adelina Sotnikova proved that she is also back and ready for the new season, debuting her short program alongside newly-crowned World champion Elizaveta Tuktamysheva and World medalists Julia Lipnitskaia and Elena Radionova.
For those curious, no sign of Evgeni Plushenko here this week.
