    she also seems to be one of the few skaters that rotate their jump clockwise.

    Carolina Kostner second at Italian nationals to Valentina Marchei

    I wonder if Italy will still send Carolina to the Olympics if she also finishes behind Valentina Marchei at the European Championship? Not only that but she was only able to execute one clean triple in the free skate and only scored 155.68 total. It will be interesting to see how she does at European Championship. What must be going through Frank Carroll's mind right now? I suppose Italy has really no choice but to still send her even if she bombs the European because of her past international results.

    In other news, Laura Lepisto another national championship with Korpi in second. It looks like Lepisto and Korpii for the Olympics unless something strange happens at the European Championship in January.

    I think that despite Carolina's result at Europeans, she should be sent to the Olympics. Not just because I like her (), but due to her past results (two time World medalist, two time European champion and two bronze medals at the GPF) and due to her overall quality, which is better than Valentina's.

    Yike, only one tirple?? Is she injure herself or what?? So far this season has been disaster for her. She is a headcase, but for 2 times world medalist to land one tirple, that's just bad. Can she recover in time for the Olympics, even if she send to it?

    Na-Young Kim isn't going. Min-Jung Kwak won Nationals so she gets to go. And I read at the Yu-Na Kim fan forum.

    Oh right. Thanks! I'll just edit that!
    Wait are you sure? I know that she is the junior champion of Korea but would she? I'll edit it once I get the results for this season's South Korean Championships.

    By the way, the youngest girl here is Miriam Ziegler from Austria! She is only 15 years-old and turned 15 last March! It will be an amazing experience for her, an Olympian at 15!!

    Laura Lepisto WON the Finnish nationals with one triple in the FS ,she was second in the FS but still....her score was 167, don't know how that happened.

    Also I thought Sarah Hecken was definitely going to the Olympics, at SA the announcers said that she was, she had to score a 128 and she scored 131 so she's going.

    Russia did not decide their entries yet, Leonova is believed to be a lock, but there is still fight for the second spot.
    Austria did not confirm their entries either, Ziegler has an advantage by winning nationals, but they will decide their entry only after Europeans, it's between Ziegler & Kerstin Frank.

    In terms of the american skaters, did the USFSA actually confirm that it would be two ladies of Sasha, Rachael, Ashley, Alissa, Mirai, and Caroline or is that just speculation? There will be other ladies at nationals who could be spoilers and end up top 2, Alexe Gilles, Angela Maxwell, Christina Gao, Emily Hughes come to mind (there are others too....lots of entries at nats). If one of these skaters were to finish 1st or 2nd (all are age-eligible for the Olympics) will the USFSA definitely bump them and send one of the ladies you had listed?

    Also does anyone know if Sasha is definitely competing or not? Nationals are in like 3 weeks...

    Also, Emile Lacoste is looking much stronger than Cynthia these days. If she does better at Canadian Nationals will she get to go?

    20. Carolina Kostner ITA *
    For Italy the deciding event will now be Euro.
    If Kostner had won Nats, probably she could be sure of the spot, but now it's all open.

    This is so weird, I mean I know Carolina hasn't been great this season but I think nationals was just a fluke. It's not like Valentina is known internationally as an OM contender like Carolina is. I would just hate for Carolina to not go, at her best, she really could medal or at least do really well at the Olympics.

    The question about Carolina is, if she can ever get back at her best. Since last worlds she's just a shadow of herself. So why not send Valentina who's probably at her best right now? Honestly I don't see Carolina as a medal contender if she continues like this and Valentina can also bring a good placement.
