I want to say a few words about Lena Radionova’s skating. I’m ecstatic about her new programs. They’re so cool! Programs are different: flamenco and Rachmaninov’s concerto. And she skates them brilliantly! After she finished I went to her and said: “Lenka, this is really great!”. She smiled. Probably didn’t even believe me. But I know what is behind those programs. How much effort they put into them. Radionova isn’t just a talent, she is a real hardworker. And I’m not ashamed of saying that.
Elena Radionova: Wherever I perform, I give it all I’ve got
"The theme of my free program is Peace. Let’s stop wars and live in peace, love and happiness. Every day you can see in the news people dying, children dying. It’s so wrong. Everyone deserves peace. In my program I try to show that life is beautiful."
