That was fantastic! I LOVE it! I could tell from test skates that it would be awesome when she healed enough to skate it properly, and I was not disappointed in the least. I miss her skating so much. This is a happy day!
Great new Avatar. And a lovely post.Well. I almost cried watching this.
Such a special program, so joyful and her smile throughout…. It’s so cruel that covid prevented us from seeing this masterpiece in competion and most importantly, prevented her from skating it the way she could have. Just for this I'll keep hoping that she attempts one final comeback and skates this at a competitive event. Imagine it at Rostelecom with a home audience and the standing ovation she deserves? Yeah. I don't care if it's unlikely and not gonna happen, I'll still hope. Because she's the ONLY ONE in skating who can make me feel so emotional. Thank you, Zhenya.
And yes, that was very, very sappy right now. Don't care. It happens.
It really is bittersweet. But I'm so happy to finally see this performance.What a beautiful performance Waited so long for this!!! I miss her so much - this would have been an epic competitive program and it is bittersweet but at this point I am happy to see it and happy to see her so happy the costume was gorgeous!
Great post.What a nice and unexpected surprise while browsing youtube with a hot cup of coffe in my hand. What a good start of a day!
Dress is nothing I imagined and it is better than anything I could think of. Just wow. Her looks, her energy, choreo, smiles, charm... everything is on point. Both her programs made me so happy.
I will also join the train of hope that she might get back to her 100% of health and start competing again.
Anyway, thank you Evgenia for everything you done so far for us fans!
Be still my heart. How far she has come.
And some lovely fan art that captures some of the magic of Alegría.
Yes, Zhenya gave her 'Russian ballet' dress to Alina in 2016 for Alina's junior debut season and then Alina got the dress remade in 2017 for the Olympic season. It was talked about a lot the past few years.Wait what... That´s Zhenyas dress in 2013? Buuuut isn´t that the same dress or very similar to the dress that Zagitova did use in the OG? It´s possible this is very known but I had no idea Wow that brings a whole new dimension to it all...
I love Zhenyas Alegrias dress, I agree it´s even better then imagined.
