    The Next Great Ladies Champion from Russia

    She's got everything. Technical difficulty, speed, edges, transitions, choreography, musicality and charisma. No weakness that I can discern.

    Plus, she's a darkish-blonde beauty just made for Hollywood. Sorry, sky fly, she's going to blow Gracie away.

    And I'm sorry to break it to ya, Sam Skwantch, but If I were Julia, I would not rest on my laurels when I look over my shoulder and see this steely-eyed competitor coming at me up the ranks:

    What adorable, and she has much more views in her video than Julia.

    I would have to see the slow motion replay, but I think she double-footed her first jump. The standing shoot-the-duck move, though, +3.

    Seriously, everyone says she seems to Juniorish. I'm not seeing it. Should get a 10 in SS.

    The title sucks you in. Bait and switch is a marvelous thing.

    Plus, once you open up that video, who doesn't warm up to a two-and-a-half year old who is cute as bug's ear (I've alway's wondered about that phrase) doing things that Ryan Seacrest can't even dream of?

    She must be working with Plushenko. She really mean mugged the competitors by the Zam door before hamming it up for the crowd.

    But cuteness overload aside, I do have a semi-serious question. At what age can one really say: this skater definitely has the talent to go all the way, no question. It's just a matter of drive and desire?

    Nice balance. Speaking of Hollywood ... her name is Riana and she is a Tatar.

    Someone is taking her seriously, those sure are fancier dresses than I see kids her age wearing. She even has sparkly tights in the first video. Wonder if her mother sews?

    Is this the same little girl?? It looks a bit like her and she seems eager to steal the spotlight.
