Although my hat is off to Miki Ando for taking the gold medal and becoming world champion for a second time, I can't help but mention how much I enjoyed watching Leonova Alena of Russia skate such a joyful program. Miki has never really inspired me. She is a hard worker. This was the best I have ever seen her perform, and she has improved in many areas, but she does not really connect with her music. I thought Leonova skated with such joy and flare. She will be the one to watch next season.
