Elena Radionova: “During the last seasons, they put me on the scales every day. Sometimes they were punished - they were not allowed on the ice"

Thank you for the translation.
Elena is my favorite Russian skater by far. When she skated, she always looked like the ice was the best place on earth to be on.
I still think she should have won in Bratilasva, that was unfair. I hope she will stay in figure skating as a coach choreographer what ever...
Mine, too. Nothing about her was cookie cutter.

That was a nice interview. One of the things Elena said is that she misses the excitement of the competition and being able to perform in front of audience. She did not like practicing so much, but loved to compete or to perform. She felt this way just recently, while performing and exhibition number at the #2 Russian Cup at Megasport.
