Terrible jumping/skating aside, Kostner needs to ditch this costume - it does nothing to hide her pit stains.
It's great that the audience is so supportive. They clap hard for everyone's jumps, even those ended in falls, it's like they're trying to encourage the athlete and show her their appreciation.
Poor Carolina, not her day.
First 3jump hands down & turnout, then popped second 3jump, fall on one, and wonkly landings on ALL the rest of them. Only highlight was the 2A/2T sequence.
***Note: purely aesthetic, but I do not like the cut of her outfit wherein her butt is hanging out. this is ladies sport, conduct yourself as such (i.e. a l-a-d-y). I didn't like it when Shizuka Arawkawa did it nor Oksana Baiul in her Cherry Tree program nor any others that come to mind.*** thumbs down.
Caro has hit the disappointment exacta.
Now it's between Mirai and Akiko?
Carolina Kostner ITA
3f 2foot, big stepout
1lz ... here we go...
she strikes rather graceful positions here and there
3t? i missed it
3lo wild but ok
2a done but not great
footwork mostly lovely, some awkward bits
final spin really nice, good sit positions
well well, same old same old from Caro. I think this is a lovely program though, am rooting for her to get it together
93.06 -- 4th
Kostner must do something with BOTH her costumes. Doesnt her team learn from previous competition??
3f fall out, 1Lz, 2a-2t, Loving the program though, 3t, 3l, 2a with a wonky landing, 3S a very bad fall. She struggles with the jumps so much today!
Well, such a shame, Caro is compeatly off today.
Frank says she should breath...yeah..what else can she do...Such a shame.
154.18, into the 4th place.
Wishing Caro would fix the problem of her skating panties. They always do that.
Yes, Akiko medaled!! Now I want Mirai to skate clean, please!
