(eternal favorites aside) Daria is my number one choice for Beijing 2022. I love her skating so much. I don’t know why, but I also have a great feeling about her future.
She is always such a lovely skater to watch - so much softness and grace in her motions, and I really do think the backwards arabesque spiral into the 2A is such a unique transition. I do hope she gets something a little different for both programmes next year; I'd love to see her expand her range of interpretation, as I think she has the makings of a very promising artistic skater.Daria's today's SP from the Moscow Championships:
One rotation after the landing of the combo, fortunately Daria catched the balance and it didn't result in a step-out.
Love the photo of her seated on her teddy bear throne.
