    Adelina Sotnikova: Olympic Thread

    Many many congratulations to Adelina. A well deserved Olympic Gold medal.

    Here is hoping she does not retire on the back of the Olympic win like Baiul and Lipninski. She clearly has the talent to go on and win much more.

    Sky_Fly20 - like me you are a huge fan of Russian figure skating. I know you have had your doubts about Adelina's ability to cope with pressure down the years - hope your convinced now! I am sure you are as delighted as I am

    I have a feeling it'll be a lonely thread with a few haters making their point

    I hope this undeserved OGM comes back to haunt her for the rest of her career, if not her life

    It's pointless and unfair to blame Sotnikova for the utter travesty that unfolded around her. She went out and did her job to the best of her ability and she should be congratulated for that.

    I see no other congratulations are in order.

    the crowd and support got her the win and motivation
    maybe she isn't much a headcase after all

    all words taken aback from what I said about her previously

    ^This. Adelina didn't judge her own performances so people should stop hating on her. I see so many mean tweets on twitter against the russian skaters. I think Yuna deserved Gold, but even she congratulates Adelina on her Gold medal so I think fans should respect that and follow her model.

    It's a bad idea Sotnikova remain in the competitions.

    She will be most beatable Olympic champion dishonorably.

    It is a shame that her medal will always be tainted

    Yuna should have done a loop. She can't be 5 points behind in TES and expect to beat the girl in 2nd place after the short.
