    That doesn't tell the whole story. Kostner also fell which is a bigger mistake than a step-out.

    Probably because she got tired of cutting her hands on Beillmans and catch foot spins/spirals? Remember how many times Gracie Gold would comment on her cuts in the Kiss and Cry last season. I remember 2-3 competitions where that happened.

    They aren't really hideous or extremely distracting gloves, anyways. You can barely see them.

    I have a bigger issue with some of the sheer costumes she has worn, where you could basically see through them. The gloves are ignorable.

    Regarding Kostner beating Sotnikova: Only a blind person would actually think that should be the case. Kostner's programs have always been pretty bad outside of *some* of the choreography and the step sequences. Tons of telegraphs and dead space from skating into jumps. Mediocre jumping. Terrible spinning, and "kind-of" odd jump layouts.

    Sotnikova is like 6/6 on Triple Flips in her last two competitions. Has she finally vanquished that demon?

    Bah... You got to it way before I did. I should have caught up on the thread backwards :-)
