ITA! Her short programme was incredible, and her long was amazing too. After her skate, the British commentators said she was a "superstar" :D I really did think she was good, she has triple-triples (although they might have been slightly cheated on landings - I'd have to check, though IIRC they were at least almost clean), other great triples, very good speed and edges (especially on the FO spiral with her hand on the ice, and her edge must be less than 45 degrees... wow), good spins, great musicality and energy... She's not a ballerina, IIRC, but she's definitely one to watch. Almost got a medal in her first Euros, kept her composure in front of her home audience bringing the house down, and skated a great long even though she had the added pressure of knowing she was in 3rd place going in!Originally posted by Kateri
If we're talking podiums for 2006, I wouldn't rule Victoria Pavuk out of anything, if she improves her presentation.
Shame Hungary only had 1 spot at Worlds - you shoulda seen her at Euros!
