Personally, I think Maria's English is fine

Her accent's better than Schwartzenneger's and she's spent less time learning English in the US

I agree that her English fine. It's just not fluent. This is not meant as a criticism of her as a person, by the way.

Here english is absolutely fluent. she understood all of the questions and speaks great. Should put a fire under the asses of other champions so that they are inspired to speak other peoples languages when they go to countries on tour.

Did she say at what age? It's easier to learn another language when you're young, so it can be possible, but highly doubtful she was perfectly fluent.

god some people are nationalistic on this board.

germans generally speak better english than russians, sorry. i admire many russian characteristics but i find it very difficult to understand many expat russians i deal with regularly.

now i wait for the comeback that it's swedes because can't hear properly.
