    She did to Carmen (Habanera) but most of the programs on the official Youtube page are partial videos. Who knows if they will post it

    I LOVE Adelina, but that routine just does not do it for me.

    Those "wings" were just far too big, and whenever Adelina held them alongside her, they completely hid her! I'm sure the audience were getting annoyed that for large parts of the routine, they couldn't actually see the skating star they wanted to see!

    For me, it would have worked better if the "wings" were a lot smaller. Like, say, the same length, but with the height reduced to that of the flags that are brought on by the wee girls skating in the opening ceremonies of competitions. Then it might have looked more impressive.

    But, fair play to Adelina for trying! A lot of skaters wouldn't even attempt to do a routine with props, never mind props that big! So, well done for pushing the boat out!

    As for the SP, not more Carmen!

    Mind you, every time I hear "Habanera", in my head I am singing the lyrics that were sung by the Ghostly Trio in the 1990's "Casper" cartoon: "Pizza pie, I eat sardines..."

    Love Adelina's athleticism, performance guts and "girl power" aura. Go Adelina!

    There's an interview today of Adelina's coach who says she's skating to an updated version of Rondo Capriccio by Camille Saint Saens. She performed this as a junior. http://fsrussia.ru/news/664_elena-bu...n-interesnymi/

    Adelina has made sweet friendships with many of the skaters from Mao's THE ICE tours. She must have passable English. There are adorable pictures with Mao and also from when she and Alex Shibutani were "dance partners" for the opening number, and they reprised the pose when they were both at Cup of Russia

    Not sure if anybody has posted this elsewhere on the forum (if they have, I apologise), but I thought you might be interested.

    I was on Adelina's vKontakte profile last week, and I spotted that back in October she shared a link to the following photo gallery on the Team Russia website:

    http://www.team-russia2014.ru/article/11875.html

    Now, you don't have to be able to read the Russian headline to be able to work out that most of the photos are of Adelina running around Moscow with the Olympic flame!

    What an honour for her to have. Not only that, but she really looks like she's actually enjoying doing it!

    Can anybody recognise any of the other people in the photo gallery?

    And, can I just say, it's a strange design for a torch. Is it supposed to be a sabre or something?

    Well done Adelina!
