    No connection to the music, most jumps are telegraphed. That was a weak LP.

    I wouldn't say she skated like royalty she is still learning her programs. I give her credit for stretching herself but so far it isn't really working. Yet.

    It seems she had landed multiple 3f-3ts during that session
    It seems like she will go for this layout:

    3lz
    2a
    3f3t
    3l
    3t2t
    3s2t2l
    3sal

    That's quite ambitious.

    If she can execute this layout cleanly, hello WC 2013!

    wow!! if she skates this program cleanly she really has a good chance! and if she doesn't land the 3f3t she can do 3t3t in the second half...a lot of points even in this case!

    During practices she always can.

    I like her SP much more than her LP.

    That LP music doesn't work very well without a lot of transitions between jumps...ugh...Bolero...it just makes it really dull to watch. And I'm not sure I understand the middle of the program, when she was posing to the music...??

    But I'm glad that Caro is getting back into it.

    SP was OK.

    But oh my goodness at the FS. Weak choreography, boring performance, generally poor execution. The most difficult triple she executed well (positive GOE) was the 3T. Even managed to throw a few single jumps in there. Impressive work by the reigning world champ.

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.
    Have to agree. Thank goodness Kim is back.

    If you can call Kostner's LP choreography weak then Kim's is just garbage.

    Lack of inbetweens, fine. But not sure how anyone watching the same program as me can say that she has no connection to music. She interpreted the heck out of the music, even if it's not what you like.

    How can you criticize Kim's choreo as garbage, yet enjoy the decayed corpse of a Lori Nichol program skated by a posing zombie who has no sensuality to even begin to interpret bolero?

    Sorry. Posing and wriggling hips don't count as "connection to music."

    I have to say you can see some people's heavy biases in these posts; let's try to stick with the skating. Before we say this or that is Caro's performance I think saying it is one thing but doing it is another. Have we really see a 3F 3T combo recentliy in competition? I think Kostner will get better as the season goes on but I am not sure she can hold off Kim among others. She doesn't have the jumps but mind you and this is just my opinion if Carolina and Kira are getting huges pcs despite watered down or esier programs then I think Chan logically deserves higher pcs. At least he tries the big tricks and difficult transitiosn and footwork. But we all seem to look at things differently

    ^^ Chan always has big tricks- his quad toe is a thing of beauty. But his footwork and transitions may be so difficult that it often affects his jump consistency. maybe "dumb" it down a bit, his programs would still be more difficult than others.
