    Will be a large confidence boost for Anna, but her score would have put her off the podium in Canada or America. Still nice work Anna!! You are the champion tonight!!

    BBC: 'Kostner lucky to be on the podium'...
    What happened to Caro?
    And Adelina as well? Missed both flips and fell twice.

    Why can't the Russian federation ban Adelina from doing flips? In the fs you know she can't do them. She can't do them. Flips cost her the win. Rarely has a skater been so knowingly self destructive and seemingly wants and craves failure.

    Kostner's age has caught up with her, technically.

    I liked how Adelina paid attention to her music, but then the 2nd half of the program she abandoned it. All over the place. That 1st flip was terrible - that slo-mo replay with her landing awkwardly on her left foot made it look worse .


    ehhh... bad ladies event.

    Yes, sometimes medals ought to be withheld, certainly gold in this case.

    I say it's nerves and pressure. I saw a video with her practices at last Europeans, she was landing with no problem 3Lz-3T and 3F-3T
    Low levels on spins and steps cost Adelina the gold She would have won even with her mistakes if not for level 1 in spin and 2 on steps

    I hope Carolina will improve her programs a lot more throughout the season..... (which we all know she is more than capable of), but I couldn't help but think about Yu-na's Scherezade all throughout Carolina's performance.

    Reagardin Kostner's costume it's not the original one. It is the one she used in kazhakistan at Denis Ten's show...the costume for this season it's not ready yet...likely! I hate the one she used today...it made her seem heavy and slow.
    I have to watch the program again to decide what to think about it. The fact that I don't like sherezade at all doesn't help.
    But it was carolina's first competition and she usually starts slow..she has works to do but I would start to worry if she skates like this at europeans!

    Thank goodness Anna won, otherwise I would have blown a fuse. Adelina needs a jumping coach or something. I always fear she's going to fall. She just powers her way through jumps. She needs technique!!

    Rus Fed should ban her from skating..She is awful. I can't watch her without the feeling that she WILL bomb

    wow and come to think of it, for 3 seasons now
    she has yet to win a GP gold medal.

    Flip is her nemesis if you cant do it
    then at least do only 1 Flip in LP

    Who would have predicted that? It would be funny if it wasn't so sad. I like Kanako's LP more than her SP, but she's got to land those jumps perfectly. Russia has got a lot of talented ladies. I predict at least one of them will be on the Sochi podium. I'm sad for Carolina, but it is just fair when she doesn't deliver.
