Love me some Pavs!!! She is beautiful!
It never gets old watching her. Love it.
That would be awesome but the only problem is last I had heard, she did not make the national team. However, it wouldn't suprise me if they pulled some strings to get her on it for Worlds.
I don't quite trust Russia with her. If they pulled her in for Worlds, I have a feeling they would leave her back out in the cold as soon as Mustafina came back.
She seems to be in good shape. i love watching her form, her leaps, her general lines. i also love that thing she does when she's going into her round off, to me that adds a lot. i love att to detail. havent kept up w/russia lately, but don't understand why she wouldn't be on the ntl team even if mustafina and komova were in play. i mean even if they don't like her, wouldn't it be good to have a spare/suitable replacement around? go anna, hope you make it to the olympics again and get a medal this time!!!
How old is Pavlova now? It's so much nicer watching the older girls dance on floor, you just can't have that polish and presence when you're sixteen. I love the original full turn that she fell on during beam that she also does on floor.
I have a feeling Pavs will be on that Olympic Team. Keep chipping away.
It would be nice to have Pavlova around a few more years, but I don't know if they'll have a need for her next year, once Mustafina hopefully recovers, Komova starts competing more, and Grishina goes senior. However, she does (or did) have two vaults, and they were a hella lot better than Nabieva's. Maybe she could finally get an EF medal?
She is a a beauty. I don't care if she falls or wobbles. She's better than 90% of the robots out there.
She's 23. And I think the polish and performance quality really depends on the gymnast; Chusovitina at 35 will never be able to match the poise and elegance of a 12-year old Pavlova.
