Omg you guys get everything twisted about my Pavlova omg

She got bronze as a team in 2006

And she actually did the amanar for the first time being a junior, there was a show called “switching places” where two juniors from GB went to train for a while to Russia, over there they had a domestic competition and Pavlova did an amanar
She also tried doing the vault Maroney did in 2012 where she fell in 2003

She didn’t deserve 3rd in 2004, she deserved silver or even gold, she was really flawless in that competition

Omg i cant
