    Lengthy interview with Adelina, her mom Olga, her coach and both choreographers. Shows some early home videos of Adelina (she seems kinda embarrassed )!!! http://www.1tv.ru/videoarchive/73791 Also interviews the rest of the non-team medalists and their parents as well.

    I think AdeQueena deserves some real time off to recoup from Sochi and then prepare for next season. That said I hope Adelina goes to worlds but I don't think she will for 2 reasons. She can't possibly as tired as she is physically and mentally get up for worlds like she did the olympics and perfrom at the level she did in Sochi. Also she has likely shut down her training and discipline for the time being after the olympics and turning it back on and go for the gold in Japan even with a lesser field than was in Sochi will not be easy.

    I hope Adelina comes back in the fall with 8 triples and 6 combos instead of the 7 and 5 she did in Sochi. She can do it and I want her and others to raise the bar.

    I think that Adelina Sotnikova needs to fight the Russian figure skating federation on her skipping worlds. Unless she is tired or injured she should skate. It's like they are shoving her aside for a younger skater...again. I know this Anna girl is only 15 and they want her to get experience. But at Sotnikova's expense? That's rubbish. Adelina is only 17 and still on the way up. Give me a break with them forcing her to miss worlds.

    With Kim and Carolina retired the door is open for another major gold medal for her and that means more money and security for Adelina. She has a special needs sister so she needs to make money for her needs and care, for her parents security and yes for herself. This is the time to strike. The competition is weaker with Kim and Costner retired so I would think Adelina would be thinking the gold is there for the taking. Now the Russian figure skating federation has stepped in and messed things up for her. She should go to worlds looking for gold like Mao and Yulia are.

    These careers are so short and every skater needs to get everything out of there careers that they can while they can. Adelina's entire 2013 / 2014 season proves she's improving and still on the way up. Why stop her? For another 15year old? It's bad enough she was snubbed for Yulia in the team event at Sochi but this is worse her being snubbed for another 15 year old who is not as highly thought of as Lipnitskaia was before the Sochi team competition. If Sotnikova really does skip worlds it's not on her it's on her federation. Let Anna skate at next years worlds when Russia will probably have 3 spots for their women. Adelina has the rare chance for Olympic gold and world championship gold in the same year. Let her go for it. It's her career not her federations.

    Doesn't Adelina look like Aliya Mustafina? anyways I was on Adelina's side from the start after she wasn't chosen for the team event, I thought she came back brilliantly nd I love her emotions at the end of her performances.

    Dark eyes, dark hair, and names that start with "A"? Aside from that, not really:

    Really nice photos.

    Am I the only one who actually finds her gala dress & the banners/streamers very apprpriate for the idea of representing a butterfly? I just love the way it seems to glow in the spotlights.

    I have loved her Gala all season. I think the one she did at Russian nationals was one of my favorites ever. Very beautiful.

    You are not the only one! I think the way she uses them is appropriate and very elegant!! In my opinion, I think the dress is tacky. I wish it was more of one color, like purple and very bedazzled instead of the swirling colors, you know.. so the look of it reminds me of a kind of baton-twirling/ribbon-dancing routine. However, there are so many parts of her program that make me say WOW. It's just so beautiful!
    I LOVE how she is pushing the limits and being creative in this way.
