Elena Radionova performs SP at 2013 junior Worlds

2013 World junior figure skating champion Elena Radionova of Russia shared thoughts on her performances in Milan.

“Honestly, I have not realized yet that I did it. But in general, next morning after my victory I woke up in a very good mood. I understand that it’s a junior championships. Nevertheless, the title of world champion sounds good,” Radionova told R-Sport.

“It was the most emotional event in my life. When I finished performing my free skating program, then I could say that I “lived” it. I think I showed all images of the performance – a dancing bird, a storm and a broken wing…

When there were exciting notes in the music, they all were inside me. At the first part of the program I was still thinking about my jumps but later I was completely captured by emotions.” Russian skater continued.

“Someone has to get hung up on the fact that during a skating performance she (he) needs to show emotions. As for me, when my body hears the music, I immediately start to dance. As for the difficult jumps, including cascades of 3-3, I do well them already three years. So I don’t need to learn them. I just need to keep them in the right form.” World junior champion added.
