    Yep, and coaches kids. She was at some local Russian event with her students last season and looked happy

    Given her poor competition results during that last season and the way she was dumped by her federation and publicly called lazy, I have to assume she ate too many cupcakes.

    Here is Elena's most famous performance, winning the silver medal at 2003 Worlds. (Dick Button and Peggy Fleming weren't entirely thrilled, but the judges gave her a lot of 5.9's for both technical and presentation.)

    She did 7 triples including an opening triple Lutz/ triple toe, with a great edge on the Lutz. She almost beat Michelle Kwan for the championship.

    She was reborn in the form of a sassy young brunette girl named Anna Ovcharova.
    She's a mini-Sokolova, only better.

    *Underrotated Triple Toe on the end of that Triple Lutz (underrotated in the SP as well). I think Sokolova has executed a sufficiently rotated 3-3 only once in her whole competitive career (2004 Euros). The rest would have been downgraded.

    She really wasn't close to winning. Her technical marks, with an extra triple over Kwan, averaged out to be the same (although she got more 5.9's) and her presentation marks were far lower. The performance was clearly not as artistic or emotionally inspired and the basic skating ability was clearly much lower. She basically just won the Russian judge.

    I vote yes also! I am especially fond of Irina. I love her sunny, straightforward personality and her splendid power on the ice. She always seemed to me to be someone who got the best out of each moment of life, in easy times and hard times. Ptichka, any news from the Russian papers or sites?
