She is so naturally gifted. It's amazing to see.
Spare yourself. Alena may sell the daylights out of it, but no one in the movie does.I hate "Twilight" and have alyways refused to watch it. But damn, Kostornaia has made me question my views and I see myself watching this shite in the near future, just because she makes her FS look so great.
Definitely the latter for me. Her enthusiasm and conviction is what makes this weird FP works. Plus it is kind of age appropriate which makes it work even more. Teenage girl who loves the Twilight movies much better than trying to sell sugar daddy's program or 50 shades of Grey (like her Gala program)I can't decide if I love her LP or if I just love how much she obviously loves her LP.
All Zhuk's skaters had great posture. Think back to Irina Rodnina, Marina Pestova & Stanislav Leonovich, Elena Vodorezova, Katia Gordeeva & Sergei Grinkov, Pershina & Akbarov....all with wonderful posture, fantastic speed and great basics.I just watched her videos again. What a great talent. I was wondering who trained her when she was young. Such lovely basics and carriage. Those 3As looked huge on my little screen. She makes everything look so easy. GUSH!
Yes, the program may be trash - but she enjoys it and skates it with gusto and conviction. Brings a smile to my face, lol. There is nothing more ridiculous than having a 16 - 17 yo. girl skate to Carmen or Cleopatra (I guess La Traviata is coming next for poor Zagitova).Agreed. I’ll take Twilight because you know it’s something she’s truly interested in and understands. She’s not trying too hard to skate above her life experience just to get the judges’ approval and gain credibility. And because her skating itself is so good and mature, it comes through even if it’s Twilight themed. This should show other young skaters and ice dance teams that trying to hard to do programs that are more mature than you can handle just makes it more obviously how much you don’t get about the material you’ve chosen.
