Why doesn't JSF do something about this now? Bring Mao back to her first coach or maybe Rafael!!!
This girl certainly has a lot of spunk, that's for sure.
Oksana Baiul used this music in one of her best ever World Professional Championships programs, Leonova should consult with her on how to make this program come alive.
I know a lot of people really like Leonova, I do too for her personality & her spunk on the ice, but I just can't really get into her skating. Too erratic & unrefined, raggedy IMHO.
Still, good job, nice girl.
Failing to do her 3T-3T in the begining kinda threw Alena off for the first half but the spunk eventually came back.
Not her best skating, but I still can't help really liking her
Ashley's really bringing it after being relegated to 5th in the Alissa/Rachel/Caroline/Mirai/Ashley group last year.
Love the hell out of Leonova. She's just too fun to watch and always dead on. The picture of consistency.
Go for gold, Miki!
Alena LEONOVA RUS
And she goes into 2nd place with a score of 103.28. Good job.
Mao won't finish on podium, worse, she will miss GPF at this rate.
fyi--mao jumps should look labored why
Oct 4 -oct 5 she skated in japan open
than just last week she skated in TEB _-she should be somewhat tired.
and labored-ashley didn't have to skate miki ando didn't have to do that.
however japan allowed mao to do that-i was wondering if that would have been the right call without a break or only a week break between the japan open and teb and rostelecom cup and then they change her program.
to me not even time between TEB and rostelecom cup to finalized the changes or make they stick .
Go miki go!!
