Leonova: “Gubanova stands out from her rivals with her femininity. Today, she is one of the best on the international scene.”

It has poor performance, there are areas of growth, but sometimes it deserves big points.

– Why is she so unstable?

— Who do you like among foreign girls now?

– Everyone is fine, but when our people arrive, everything will change. I like Sakamoto, I give him preference. But if our team starts participating in international tournaments, then Sakamoto will no longer be a favorite. I am rather a single man.

— In your opinion, what are Gubanova’s strengths? Compared to other competitors.

“The way she presents herself in the programs conveys an image… I see skating differently from others. Sakamoto has a strong style, such hard programs. Nastya is more feminine, it’s very eye-catching,” Leonova told .
