    This is why i don't like 14 year old girls on the GP. All the other ladies look and are built like women then you have Elena who's built like a 10 year old boy so of course she can rotate those triples. I'm glad too that next season you have to be 15 to be on the GP. Frank Carroll said it best when he said girls this tiny can rotate like a bat out of hell while the older ladies have curves and the body of a woman. But COP rewards this sadly even though Elena doesn't skate with the maturity or power of a older skater.

    Her PCS is a joke. Mao, miki, caro, yuna never got that kind of pcs and they were much better skaters with better programs and better skating skills and all had 3x3.

    It is said briefly in this interview, but there was another one where it was more detailed

    Basically, she is portraing a lief which flies above the ice. The lief is thrown from one side to another by wind the same way as Anna Karenina was "thrown" from one edge to another with her decisions. It was hard to translate word by word)

    I think it has something to do with her extremely tiny bone structure: yes, she is very narrow shoulders, and relatively short neck (I think Karen Chen also has short neck which does not adds to the elegance of a skater), and legs too. That's why Radionova's legs somehow appeared (not as a fact) to be crooked because her muscles already outgrown her bones.

    That made me love her more because I don't think she was born with a strong body genetically (more likely to me with very bad genetics) but considering what she has achieved so far...

    I think Elana still skates like a JR and I find her jumps very small. So not sure why she gets high GOE and PCS!

    Great work Valentina!! Anyone notice the sparkles on her tights?? The jumps looked really strong, and to me it looked like she had a true lutz edge! 60+ I'm guessing!
