    Thanks for the link. She's lovely! Though I'm rooting for Mao, if Carolina wins, I wouldn't be distressed at all. She's a marvelous presence on the ice, and it's so lovely to see someone skating to Mozart so exquisitely. Besides just her obvious strong points of beautiful lightness and grace, I'm happy to see someone doing so well who's (a) taller than a lady skater is "supposed" to be and (b) older than the typical skater at the peak of her powers. Good for you, Carolina! I hope you sustain this level of excellence and even improve.

    As a long-time admirer of Carolina & her skating, it's great to see her finally coming into her own after all these years, can't wait for Worlds!

    It took me a little effort to warm up to her - but posters here (or that used to be here, I'm thinking about doggiegirl and Realtorgirl and a few others and I don't remember exactly who at the moment) really explained well what was great about Carolina's skating to help me see past 'the coltish' qualities to what here many talents were. I have really enjoyed her as a result, and am particularly enchanted with how she has come together as a consistent competitor with really intriguing, to me, programs, especially this year. I'll be rooting for her at Worlds!

    Carolina has been really busy since Worlds, here are some news from the past two weeks:

    Photos from the reception in her hometown St. Ulrich/Urtisei: http://www.stol.it/Artikel/Panorama-...rolina-Kostner

    On the red carpet with Roberto Cavalli at the screening of her show "Opera on Ice" in Milan (btw, there will be a second show on September 22, more info on www.operaonice.eu): https://twitter.com/#!/Roberto_Caval...821440/photo/1

    Photos from the award ceremony where she won the "athlete of the year" award in South Tyrol: http://www.stol.it/Artikel/Sport-im-...ler-des-Jahres

    Receiving the "key" of the city of Verona (I don't know what is up with that but it seems to be a great honour): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aoh24Zc-DV8

    I am super impressed that in 2 years time she has become this goddess on the ice. Supermodel looks, sophisticated yet classy and beautiful musicality. She is simply exquisite!

    Her SP during the WTT was simply ethereal!
