  1. Haha, at 11:00 Tarasova randomly starts reading a Saransk recipe from a cookbook...she's kind of spacey in this video in general. Love her.

  2. I/K were robbed...don't get B/S

  3. I/K were slick and composed, amazing twizzles
    B/S were awkward and not elegant, amazing rotational lift entry

  4. What is with the depressingly lit, dirty, and brownish Russian arenas? I don't believe I have ever seen one that looks modern or clean.

  5. I hope the great and wonderful Tarasova lost that weight intentionally. Let's hope she didn't have untreated diabetes or something to cause massive weight loss. She looks beautiful, and we will hopefully have her for many years.

  6. TAT is a hot mess in this video! I LURVE HER!
