    Ok, I've been sceptical, but after seing her at two GPs already gotta admit it's hard not to love this kid. She's just so freaking cute.

    Speaking of "freaking cute" ... in case some haven't watched this yet, I'm re-posting this 10-minute profile video, produced by IMG, that was filmed primarily at the CSKA rink in Moscow and features more on Elena Radionova than Adelina Sotnikova (their interviews are translated into English, including Inna Goncharenko's, who coaches Radionova): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1LqZtubZos
    Elena is especially charming with her bubbly chatter and open facial expressions.

    Grace posted a pic with Elena - she has over a head on her! I hope Elena survives puberty - sometimes these girls fizzle out and they cannot do the jumps as well...

    I seem to remember a few years ago everyone talking about the incredibly talented up-and-coming Russian ladies and that Leonova, etc., were so lucky these young ladies who were absolutely going to win all of the medals in 2014 weren't eligible for 2010. Now we're here and all those same incredibly talented up-and-coming ladies are so lucky that the new up-and-comers aren't age eligible.

    Wow, all those grown ups and the little girl between them... I really didn't realize how small she was.

    C'mon, Gracie, don't you want to be seen as the one who gets the glass slipper? For now, stow the head bling, and never stand next to anyone who can still get candy on Halloween.

    Pictures of Radionova hugging Mao at the medal ceremony. If this is not cute, I don't know what is!

    I think she looks beautiful.

    Btw is the tiara a new trend with people other than Royalty? It looks kind of silly imo for a banquet but that's just me.

    She does look beautiful, but the outfit is totally inappropriate.. both for her age and the occasion. Elena's little black dress would have been a better choice.

    Elena's outfit is like something a medieval monk would wear, and it's a stroke of freaking genius. It so makes her look like the waif-y scullery maid that needs to be plucked out of Cinderella obscurity.
