    Very old publication! Anna said later she wasn't understood right and was surprised to see the words she didn't tell.

    She looks super slim to me, nothing even close to Tuktamisheva imo. It must be sth with my eyes?
    Since Sochi Adelina has seemingly added some weight but not Anna. Pogo looks to be in great shape. Her lines are long too and that helps. She is just naturally beautiful. I also think Pogo is taller than Adelina who is listed at 5'4" tall.

    So is Adelina finished? Is it weight or curves (puberty)? One wonders if it is a lot of weight. Can she lose it?

    What are you talking about? Adelina is young and in great shape?

    I wouldn't worry too much about Adelina even if she has put on weight since Sochi (has she?) She appears to have finished with puberty. If she's put on weight, all she really needs to do it lose it the normal way.

    Umm, work out, practice more, eat less... the normal way in life, not just skating.

    I'm drawing a distinction between "weight due to puberty" and "weight due to relaxing/practicing less in the off season." I suspect the latter is easier to get rid of--if you can gain it, you can lose it.

    Yes. But you can't deny what is obvious. The Russian babies are very talented.

    Actually the political clout that Russia has in skating has nothing to do with this topic. The user above is trying to turn this topic into another boring discussion about the judges.

    And Russia in not alone as far as political clout in skating is concerned.

    No more than any other large fed. They just seem able to back it up on the ice nowadays better than the others. Really Really

    I think thar one of the biggest issues amongst the Russian babies is where Serafima is going to end up. Will she stay with Eteri and her group after the summer training she is doing there? That could have a huge impact on her career if she moves from St Petersburg to join this very young and very talented group.
