This is hands down the best ladies SP in the world this season I believe. LOVE her musicality, the use of her arms, the always exquisite footwork. Her jumps are FIRST RATE when she hits them!
    Yes yes yes. There used to be a time when she didn't know what to do with her long limbs. Now they just enhance her skating so wonderfully and make her skating look sooooo big and impressive. She skates with such polish now and her extension is beautiful. Carolina in that program is simply divine!! Such musicality and joy. She has improved this program since Italian Nationals and hopefully there will be a clean performance at worlds. this is a program that I can watch over and over for years to come!

You may be underwhelmed but Adelina is a strong spinner with interesting positions, a powerful jumper, and her choreography is difficult but not overly busy. The look of terror on someone's face should have no impact on PCS. A clean Adelina will place several points ahead of a clean Kaetlyn. Whether Kaetlyn fans agree with that statement in the Edge doesn't matter because none of them are international judges.
    I think right now Sotnikova still has stronger skating skills and faster spins than Kaetlyn, but everything else such as performance, interpretation, musicality, movement quality Osmond is better hands down. Jumps, I don't know. Although Adelina has landed some difficult 3-3s, she has a pretty obvious flutz and her 2nd toe at the end of her 3-3 always looks laboured to me. There's just something awkward overall about Adelina's skating to me. I think she needs a dance instructor to teach her how to use her upper body and fix her carriage.

    They do look like "red-gloved hands." :-) But other than that, I personally liked Carolina's dress.

    That is exactly what I find boring. I would like to hear what people think about skaters at this competition. I don't remember, or have seen all of them, but there were newbies like Weinzierl, Lanaelle G-G and the Danish girl Anita who did quite well. Are they something for the future? When I started reading this thread I thought there would be pages of praise for Adelina, but as CaroLiza_fan says, a lot of negative posts about her or predicting her bombing tomorrow

    Sotnikova was the most impressive she's been in 2 seasons. Just the sp so far but that was so solid.

    Liza had her usual sp problem but after doubling 3lz she did the 3t and other things were good.

    Kostner would have lead without the fall.

    Good for marchei!

    I think Liza will win a medal.

    Kostner still telegraphs her jumps, where are the transitions? She is so overmarked. Should be 3rd or 4th.

    Transitions are the most quantifiable of the PCS marks so I wish they would actually reflect program content.

    I wonder if Russia is thinking they should have sent Leonova - after all Liza and Adelina are still young,one ripe veteran (ok sarcasm) might not have been bad. Who would think the world silver medallist couldn't make it out of her country. Hopefully Leonova does a Maria Butyrskaya or Irina Slutskaya and prove Russia wrong - though next year she has Lipnskaya to compete with too.

    transitions in and out of the loop.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...YELM1w6g#t=60s
    transition after exiting the jump, including a short spiral.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...ELM1w6g#t=103s
    transition in and out of the 2A.

    Are you kidding? She had more transitions than all of the girls at this event. Her TR should be at least two points higher than Adelina.

    Here's Adelina's 3T-3T
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...gINUarYw#t=26s
    same entrance, no exit transition.

    Here's Adelina's solo 3F
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...gINUarYw#t=48s
    Caro did her solo 3lo immediately after 3 turn. Had interesting exits. Adelina's exit transition isn't as smooth.

    Here's Adelina's 2A
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...gINUarYw#t=85s
    a little spiral, follow by a long set up for the 2A. exit has no transition.

    Why do people keep on saying Caro has no transitions?

    More like insufficient transitions - perhaps there is something you missed but others picked up?
