Leonova and Kovtun get a chance to go to Worlds
So it means that ladies: Tuk, Adele, Alyona
Pairs: V/T, B/L, K/S
Dancing: I/K, B/S, R/T
Kovtun is doing well but not sure it's top 10 senior worlds level but then again no one eligible is likely top 10. Possible but not likely.
Rus fed should have just sent leonova to euros.

Leonove had better up her game next season if she wants to make the Olympic team. Besides Tuk and Adelina who seem to be sure things she will have to fight off Julie, Gosviani and perhaps even Korobeynikova if she can get it together. Even Pogorilaya will be eligible for the Olympics though she's a long shot and will probably stay on the JGP for another year.

Poor Menshov and Voronov!
Alena has had her turn as #1 Russian lady and it seems her turn is over. She's unlikely to make it to Sochi when there's a slew of younger ladies who can outjump and outperform her.

Leonova was the #1 Senior Russian lady for 4 years. Props to her.
She shouldn't be going to Worlds this year according to the rules, though, because Russia should only have 2 spots this year.
I will always think of this performance when I want to recall Leonova fondly:
