Campioana olimpica cu siguranta merita si ea un thread ( cred ca a mai fost unul dar a disparut cand au fost probleme tehnice pe forum)

Cateva date biografice:

The results qualified Sotnikova to her first Grand Prix Final. At the event in Fukuoka, Japan, she was second in the short, placed sixth in the free, and finished 5th overall.
At the 2014 Russian Championships, Sotnikova placed first in the short, second in the free, and won her fourth national title, edging out Yulia Lipnitskaya for the gold. Appearing in her second European Championships, Sotnikova placed first in the short and second in the free, taking the silver medal with an overall score of 202.36 points while Lipnitskaia won gold.
