    Despite the fall on the 3L and slight bobbles on some of the landing of her jumps I really liked this program, much much more than her SP. It suits her well, as does the packaging, no more bangs, yes!

    Christina Gao (USA)

    Music: Libertango by Astor Piazzolla

    3F+3T - nice, perhaps UR on 3T
    2A
    3Lz - fall, e
    CoSp
    LSp
    3F - a bit shaky landing
    3Lo - inside edge landing, perhaps twofooted
    3S+2T
    ChSp
    3T
    SlSt
    FSSp

    Not total on w/ the jumps. Performance-wise she doesn't give the tango feel - she's still very gawky and the lines are not best.

    I'm not sold on Gao yet, she still has to grown into her body and her jump landings lack precision. I'm not sure she'll become the skater she was promoted to be as a junior.

    Actually 100 is not bad given a not perfect program. That means she has the potential to score bigger if she works on the program a bit more. I get the feeling she lost levels on the spins, in particular the last one.

    Makarova looks much better this year in terms of choreography and interpretation, but seems like she lost her jumps completely :( I wonder if we will see her in Russian team this season, so far younger ones like Shelepen look much more impressive.
    Gao is too sloppy, I think she looked better last year. 3F-3T was good, but everything else is mediocre. And she is still boring, Libertango isn't for her at all

    I think it's good she's challenging herself to do new types of programs. I don't think it's a complete miss. I really like the step sequence and I can see her really working it as she gets more comfortable with it.

    I didn't watch the Italian skater, nor did I watch her SP, just isn't my type of skater.

    Nothing against her, also I don't like her music.

    LSp - nice arch and Biellmann, a lot of the younger Chinese girls have this layback.

    She will probably drop in the ranking

    I love Geng's Caroline Zhang Pearl Spin, too bad about the fall and little bobbles here and there, the most noticeable the stop after the 2L, just odd/weird moment, and then the huge GASP from the crowd when she fell. :(

    Still, I like this skater, nice sense of musicality.

    The crowd here is strange. Very quiet, but when someone falls, they gasp so loud!

    Adelina Sotnikova has such a beautiful doll face, reminds me of the phenomenal artistic gorgeous 1996 Olympic Womens Gold Medal Champion in the All-Around in Gymnastics ~ Lilia Podkopayeva!

    What a star Adelina can be...

    ps: love her lavendar costume. Minimal makeup, beautiful, doesn't need a ton of cosmetics to show off her natural beauty.
