    What little of the Sport 2 commentator that I can understand is just .

    For example: The reason Sotnikova did not get PCS as high as Kostner is because she's 16 and judges do not give high PCS to 16-year old skaters.

    I mean it had nothing to do with the fact that Kostner is a better skater and had a better program, OBVIOUSLY.

    You missed the point. Nobody is saying Adelina will be champion at the age of 25. The point is you never know what will happen to her since she is so young. Maybe the score she got today will give her confidence for tomorrow and win the title. You never now at such a young age. Maybe her time is right now. But even if it's not, she has lots of time to get consistent. She's got talent in spades and she just saw that once she can keep it together the score she gets is big and one can never count her out.

    Carolina's costume was an unfortunate choice imo. Don't understand Liza being in third. Poor Elene. I so hoped she would get it together when she went to Orser.

    I am skeptical about her scores and if she can hold it together, i
    I used to be her biggest fan but not anymore

    Why not? By adding a 3T to the 2Lz she made the combo valid, so no negative GOE here. 3loop was great and she had a small mistake on the 2A. The steps were fine also and the spins looked ok. She didn't went well compared to her standard but it was far from a disaster

    I missed practically the whole competition, slept in late this morning. I am just thrilled for Adelina, very talented young lady. Glad she kept her nerves together.
    You can imagine my surprise when I looked at the results and saw her in first place over my favorite Caro. Looking forward to the videos.

    thats what I saying. would people really want for Sotnikova to become a world champion immediately and never come back after one successful year?
    she is a Tara Lipinski copy

    Asking a 16 year old to be World champion right now or she's a disappointment is a bit harsh. I bet she will be a World champion someday and it won't be when she's 25. After Sochi all the girls at the top now will be gone.

    It's kinda unfortunate she fell on the 3T right when Michael Buble would have sang the words "feeling good".. couldn't help but notice that.

    the thing is Liza though she is really bad is SP's she will almost always pull it together in FS. but for Sotnikova there is something of uncertainty in SP and FS
    Sotnikova is probably the most inconsistent skater at the elite

    You are entitled to your own opinions about Adelina. While it is true that she has not had the best season, I have faith in her as a skater. She truly is a complete skater and I am sure that we will see a new and revamped Adelina next season.
