    Skater ID...

    The filename says Kiira Korpi in it but I'm not totally convinced it's actually her- is it? This girl looks like she has longer hair?

    It does at first glance but I dunno, there's a part of me that thinks it could possibly be someone else

    It's included in this gallery of Kiira Korpi modeling pictures (#2)

    http://www.gotofree.net/galeri/model/Kiira-Korpi/

    Plus, the skater is wearing Kiira's distinctive white boots with wood-grain heels

    Thanks for the link MM. That's what I was looking for. I needed some sort of proof that it was her...

    You are quite the observer. And a CoP expert yet you say you are not. HMMMMM. False modesty?

    I'll bet you are the only guy who notices the heels of her boots. Most men I suspect can't take their eyes of that face!

    She is always wearing a bun, instead of loose hair. I would think that girl would be endorsing a lot of products. She shoud be the Kim of Finland. IMO most gorgeous FS out of Europe since Witt. And she's a pretty good skater as an aside!

    Yes, the hairstyle is one of the things that threw me off at first

    Unfortunately for me, her skating never quite matched her looks. There's just something (can't put my finger on it) missing...even in her exhibition in the cop outfit I felt she was trying too hard...

    Out of the Finnish pack I think Lepisto has the most charm in her skating.

    That photo is from the 2009 European Championships Gala. And yes, she is Kiira. The picture is from a public gallery of a Finnish photographer Sari Niskanen and in several photos of that picture set Kiira is easier to recognize.
