Poor Maxim. He could be the world junior champion but now he is under such a big responsibility. But I remember Leonova made it before in 2009 when she earned two spots for Vancouver, with lesser hope. And also good luck to Leonova! Hope she skates well there.
A really impressive transparency. An example for other federations.
