SOCHI, February 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Modern ice dance lacks novelty and creativity, says event gold medalist at the 2002 Salt Lake Olympic Winter Games Marina Anissina, representing France together with Gwendal Peizerat.
“At the moment, Canadians Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir and Americans Meryl Davis and Charlie White cannot be beaten," she says. "Objectively, they are stronger than all other dancers. They are real devils of work, phenomenally diligent people. However, even their programmes lack novelty,” Anissina added.
“The modern judging system slightly restricts opportunities for creating programs,” Anissina said. “Canadians and Americans are well trained, they skate well. But I do not see in their performances anything surprizing and anything that remains in the memory. I want to see some creativity.”
The signature move of French couple Anissina and Peizerat was the reverse lift, where the female lifts her male partner. Traditionally, this element is performed by men.
