L remember seeing that time and wondering if there was any connection between her and Popov’s old coach and now I know.

Congratulations, Sasha, now become Switzerland’s first medalist this summer at Kazan. Afterall you and the Campbell sisters both put your suits on the same way — one leg at a time!

Just imagine what your dad can do for you if he puts in HALF the effort he did w/Tsar Alex.
