Please don't say montalbano had a failed partnership. Poor girl broke her ankle and had two surgeries. He wouldn't wait for her. They were 11 two years ago here . I hate to keep defending her but rumors that arent true are awful. Shes wirking so hard. Last surgery was under skates with a plate a year ago

I watched all of the videos. Leonova is as perky and cute as ever. I like her 'Kalinka' SP. Adelina, and Julia were spot on, Carolina was ethereal although her program seemed almost like an exhibition skate. And as someone suggested upthread, her low-cut costume seemed perhaps not appropriate for 'Ave Maria, which is obviously a religious-themed song.

Haha -- I just watched Leonova's SP. I haven't laughed so hard watching skating in a long time.
Intentional comedy? Or unintentional?
Normally I don't comment on skaters I don't enjoy watching, but in this case I can't say I didn't enjoy ... it was funny! Russian Hillbilly comes to mind! Some people like that style I guess.
