    That is the best I have ever seen Kostner skate. Elegant, but with a few quirky faun touches. She might climb over the witch!

    I don't speak Russian, but it seems the commentator (Irina?) is upset about Caroline's score.

    German commentators just repeated that they've had Alissa's PCS above Leonova!

    Happy for Carolina!

    That left me flabbergasted. I like Leonova, but her program had barely any transitions, while Mao's had connecting moves in and out of her every element except for 3A. I even expected her to have the highest TR component of all ladies. But lower than Elena and Miki (who improved a lot presentation-wise, but still has far less transitions in her long program that Mao)? o_O

    Likely. In return for hosting Worlds, Russians probably wanted at least one person on the podium in each discipline. Oops, Kostner just bumped Leonova off the podium. It's all up to Makarova now.

    Russians need to be careful--Carolina is under Speedy protectorate.

    I wouldn't be able to say. I'm not privy to backstage going ons between federations and ISU judges. Even if that's not the case, I believe judges can let themselves be influenced by fact
    1. She has the crowd's support.
    2. It's her home country.
    Maybe they're not completely conscious of the fact they're being influenced, but it's definitely in their heads somewhere.

    A respectable showing by Kostner was easily going to place ahead of Leonova. Caro has the best skating skills in the world among the women.

    oh please, there's been way to much disputed judging of Russians in skating for it to be a conspiracy theory any more. They do it, and everyone knows it!
