    Woooow, she tried 3 lutz! I don't especially like her sp but I must admit Bolero suits her very well and it's a nice free program.

    On the other hand, she performed only 4 triples, including 2 underrotated, one with a step-out and only one succesfull 3 toe in a combination with 2 toe.

    It seems that in the long she goes for seven triples or at least I hope so...it is very challenging and I hope to see it at full potential! It is wonderful however! and the short too.
    this is what I love of Carolina, every year she came with different things!

    well i think this was a great comeback 4 triples (even if they weren't all perfect), and all her spins and steps where level 4. I think the music suits her well!

    I was very disappointed. Yes, Carolina tried different music and kudos to that but she has no connection with the music; the music seems like an afterthought. Good try with the bigger jumps but truly disappointing for a world champion forget the color or style of her costumes. The music seems like it is just there. She sould be proud she has a world gold and move on perhaps? I know she is loved by so many but show skating could be for her. These jumps are almost equivalent to katarina Witt 25 years ago! although I give credit for the 3 lutz attempt.

    Wow, the long program looks good! The jumps still need work, but that will come with time, I think. And it's good to see her attempting the 3Lutz. I like how the program builds strongly at the end.

    We are definitely seeing some great long programs this year in the ladies division--with this Bolero, Ashley's Samson & Delilah, Akiko's bird program, and Mao's Swan Lake, we could be in for a treat in the final flight at Worlds. (And I haven't even seen Yuna's Les Miz yet!)

    She skates with magestic airiness. I wish I knew the proper skating term.

    I see reminiscences of Maurice Béjart choreography in her FS, that's cute I suppose she did qualify for the Worlds?

    I dont like her lp. No transitions and lots of telegraphing. Feels empty And slow. Forgettable bolero.

    Get rid of it!!!

    her lp last year was magnificent, maybe she should bring it back?

    I like the programs but she seemed to have very little control of her jumps.

    This was not the kind of outing I expected from the current WC, esp. her LP. She only had 1 decent triple. I hope she improves by March.
