A spacious interview with Alena Leonova
A very spacious and detailed interview taken in May and published a few days ago.
Alena seems like a nice, decent girl. I'm glad things are going well for her with all the problems she has had.
With that said, ( and you always have to worry whenever anyone tells you "with that said" ), I wondered how she would have done at Junior Worlds had her strongest rival not been dying of swine flu. Two months later at the World Team Trophy, I got my answer.
Dying of swine flu? Dramatic much?
Alena won JW fair and square. She was the best skater over both the SP and LP. Caroline lost the title in the SP alone. Ashley and Elene lost in the LP.
