What's up with Polina Korobeynikova this season? Did she not qualify for Nationals? I know she withdrew from her GP assignment.. has she competed at all this season?
zamboni step - So I went to an Indian restaurant to have a posh meal to treat myself for Christmas and once the booze kicked in, I had this 'epiphany.'
I remember Volchkova being unusually tall for a skater when she was competing. Maybe she did indeed extend a helping hand to taller skaters, having been in their shoes herself?
I forgot the other point I wanted to make (it's probably the Christmas booze again ).
I just watched Leonova's SP.
The typical Morozovian choreography was terrible (front loaded, element layout not balanced, lack of transitions, blah blah blah).
I haven't seen Leonova skate with so much joy, confidence and attack in ages. And tons of PERK! She was incredible.
3toe/3toe was HUGE, 2axel was solid and 3flip was ok. But more importantly, the presentation, the performance was just second to none.
Congrats to her for proving everybody that doubted she still had it in her (including me)! Show the youngsters how it's done, Grandma Leonova!
