    She is visibly slow from the angle of those videos or maybe her 'lightening speed' in the past was just a myth?

    i think it's more because of the music..at the beginning it is slower but then right before the step it's faster and Carolina too... I love the program!!

    Good for her for going for the 3Lutz.
    Nice to see the Lutz back!

    I'm curious to know if she intended to do a 3F-3T here.

    The last Salchow is way toooo risky because it comes out of nothing and 2 seconds later the music stops. If she is only a little behind the music, it won't work.

    I think a couple of times we will see an alternative finishing pose, that's being her down on the ice !?

    But the program is great!

    At least, she won't be criticized because of not trying the lutz: with a 3F+3T or a 2A+3T she'll be attempting 7 triples! And the program is so elegant, complex, difficult, innovative, even if she clearly didn't perform her best today!

    Yet Carolina got higher PCS here than Akiko at NHK, with only 1 clean 3T here, 2 <, 1 stepped out 3Lz ... man oh man... the COP scoring system/judges are a funny bunch aren't they.

    Nice to see her going for the 3lutz though and the program has potential

    Hmm. Did Kostner get 47.xx tech mark for long then? Does that mean she has to get higher score at Euro to compete in World?

    Her pcs magically shot from 6-7 to 7-8 overnight if her performance sucked in the LP. The judges are on crack.

    She got 47.37. Since the minimum is 48, you are correct.

    I'm not complaining. Its just you always see people on here and other forums blast her for her short dresses
    and say that you could see her crotch.
    and yes her dress is short and it doesnt seem to fit her well at the top, but it could just be me. colour is nice.

    I am back home now. Could not stay for the gala. My head was falling apart.

    Carolina had somewhat conservative layout of jumps, but she did try lutz and i think it is a very good sing.

    My impression is that she wanted to let herself go to the music. The program is slow and it is somewhat strange seeing Caro skating slowly BUT it is very smooth and looks sophisticated. She is being flirty and I love it. As the rhythm picks up (the cut of the music is maybe a little off) she picks up speed but it is very hard to notice when & where she does starts gliding/skating faster.

    What kind of jumps did she practice in the 6 min warm-up und were they successful?

    I wish I could be more informative...
    My wireless was acting out and I was freaking out during the warm up. I do remember her trying lutz. She did not go for the triple but just practiced the take off.

    I understand what you're saying, if you can see that then she shouldn't wear beige tights in the first place but then again she's not the only one.

    No she has reached the minimum last year a lot of times. There never was a problem and not her goal today. She just wonted to get out her programs and was happy to do it.

    Oh yes, that's right, the minimum TES has to be achieved in the on-going season or the immediate preceding season. Thanks for the correction.
