please let that be third
Kostner was BEAUTIFUL! I loved that, that was pure joy
That is the best I have ever seen Kostner skate. Elegant, but with a few quirky faun touches. She might climb over the witch!
Kostner score: 124.93, new SB, total 184.68 and into 3rd
Kostner was really good... and she gets into podium position!!! Not its all left to Makarova
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_OOriginally Posted by skatinginbc
the russian commentatos are mad. heh. even I know what nyet means. But sorry, I liked that better Alena. Glad for Carolina.
Sigh, Alissa. Glad she fought after the fall but sooooooo close to the podium. sigh, sigh.
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.

Congrat Kostner!!! It great to see her skate so well.
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.
