    Well, does she know Mao is yet retiring? Mao has 8 triples, you know.

    Goooo Adelina!! Stay healthy and keep working hard to get there. I believe in you!

    The target is on her back, but I want to believe she can prove everyone wrong. She's a super talented girl.

    It is far easier to be the hunter than the hunted.

    From now on, Adelina will always be the one with something to prove. And when she fails, the hurt will be much worse than it was before.

    I know your comment is lighthearted, but it's still difficult to laugh because that can indeed be the reality we live in. I would have her as the gold contender in 2018, but things got soured. Perhaps this scandal may serve a motivation for her. I'm looking forward to seeing her improvements.

    Glad Adelina's not retiring, and I can't wait to see how she develops in the future!

    She had decent choreo this season (esp. compared to previous), but with her all-around qualities she can do so much better. Hope she DOESN'T skate to tacky music with lyrics next season (aka Burlesque part 2)

    That's the attitude. I wonder if Adelina will get the Olympic Champion boost in her scores from now on or if the judges will be stricter with her because the expectations are higher now.

    After reading the quote I almost hear Freddie Mercury singing "I want it all and I want it now!" And I say go for it! Ride that Olympic Euphoria.

    If I were Sotnikova I'd retire right now. No matter how much she loves skating, nothing is worth the vitriol you people are spewing her way. It's absolutely classless and it's amazing what people are willing to say or do when they can hide behind an internet persona/screen name.
    Adelina should stay and not let the vitriol affect her. Hope she wins more gold medals and cause some aneurysms.

    She should skip 2018. With how scarily nationalistic Koreans are being about this affair, I wouldn't be surprised if a nut job tried to harm Adelina physically. Focus on winning world titles instead.

    I don't think Adelina will last the whole quad anyways. She needs to concentrate on next year's worlds and then call it a career. No way is she winning this years' or the one in the US in 2016. For security reasons I would skip 2018 Olympics just in case. lol

    The score gap between Yuna and Adelinna sotinokova is around 5 points.

    And Russians say this is because sotinokova has jumped one more triple jump.


    But though Yuna has jumped one less triple jump, she did one more double jump. which means the total number of jumps is just the SAME.


    Yuna jumped 6 triple +5 double while sotinokova jumped 7triple + 4 double.

    The score gap between triple and double is just 2 points.

    This fact shows if that was the main reason to have the score gap it should be more or less around 2points instead of 5 points.

    and aside from that, we all know she has one double jump mistake in free program.

    this means there must not be any score gap between Yuna and sotinokova.

    Therefore Sotinokova score gap argument connecting to number of triple jump is nonsense
