Alena Leonova

Alena Leonova’s website is a breath of fresh air, much like her skating. A crisp design in a cheery shade of tomato red greets visitors, with much of the content offered in both English and Russian (

Leonova’s personality permeates the pages, particularly in her very candid blog, which she updates regularly with classy, honest commentary on her own performances — even when things do not go as planned.

Although the discussion forum is only in Russian, fans can interact and peruse the extensive photo and video galleries. Don’t miss the adorable clips of a tulle-swathed Leonova competing in her early years. She was born a charmer!
