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!
Good luck Carolina for the coming Worlds. I am sure you will podium! You are an elegant skater.
Carolina has been really busy since Worlds, here are some news from the past two weeks:

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

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!
2012 WORLD CHAMPION!!!!
