Original Post
Italian figure skater Carolina Kostner was born on Feb 8, 1987 in Bolzano, Italy.

Carolina pronounces her name in this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8DRx5X2K3U

Here is her SP from Golden Spin of Zagreb courtesy of let's talk. Not the best quality video but Carolina is spot on, her jumps look good,
amazing speed her connection to the music is wonderful and that footwork secton at the end, Oh My!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HY5GW01udZ0

I saw the the protocols in the Golden Spin thread and noticed that her PC's are low. One judge gave her a 6.75 for P/E :rolleye:
She may be a little rusty but 6.75???

I was surprised that the "Goddess on Ice" did not have a thread in Fan Fest. So I am going to gush now. lol

I had the same reaction after seeing her skate and the protocols. She gave a very good clean skate in her first competition. That speed and footwork! That definitely deserved higher PCS than what they gave her here. 6.75 is such a joke.

Caro's SP is looking good! So glad to see her back, the Ladies competition at Worlds promises to be very exciting with both her and Yuna back in the mix

Here's Carolina's new LP to Bolero: http://youtu.be/uRevSNTNMKc

I think it has a lot of potential! I especially like the ending, good to see her back.

I really like the choreography and Caro's interpretation of this warhorse music. Very innovative indeed. When I heard that Caro would be skating to Bolero
I was a little concerned because I think this is a difficult piece to skate to, but after seeing Caro LP I have no worries. Loved it!
Thanks for posting the video link.

Weee! Ravel's Bolero has so many silly interpretations, especially on the floor, that I switched into just listening to it long time ago, and no watching. But Caro seems like will change my mind :). Such a kinky verison, some quintessence of classic flavours, contemporary dance spirit based on the Elegancy of European ballroom tradidtion.

actually the LP was not linked npavel, but the sp, which is so glorious I can watch it over and over. Caro is now simply divine. Are these both Lori Nichol's programs?
Increible!!! Bravo!!!!!

I thought Carolina was wonderful in her free skate, despite that very unfortunate fall @ the end. Congrats, Caro!

She was just wonderful in her free skate. Even if it would've been even more fantastic without the fall, she really showed what she's made of, and her interpretation of Bolero was so fabulous. I think it may be one of my favorites ever. Seeing her skate and the way she captivates the crowd -- the GEO she gets is every bit justified, I think. She also seems to have a wonderfully warm and funny personality, if interviews are anything to go by, so I love her even more. Now I desperately want to see her medal next year! Not sure she can get gold, what with Yuna Kim around (and I think it will be awesome to see a consecutive Olympic champ in modern era, and Yuna probably is the best skater out there), but I think the way she skates, she can definitely be a great challenger to Yuna than other -- admittedly excellent -- skaters.

Welcome to GS vegarin! I have been a fan of Caro's it seems like forever, through the ups and downs of her career.
She has been skating senior level I believe since 2003 and if you look at her record it is pretty impressive.
She has quite a collection of medals and I think she will add one more in Sochi.

Thanks for the welcome! Yes, I'm new -- finally I decided to stop lurking and chime in with how much I loved the ladies free this year, and that I've become Carolina's fan after her program. I remember seeing some of the shakier skates earlier in her career and thinking that she was quite uneven, but now, the confidence and the joy just come through in her skate -- she seems to skate with her everything, and it's awesome to watch even when she's not perfect or clean.

Man, demarinis5, you must be quite gratified to see her do so well! I agree that she is likely to add another medal to her collection next year. Doesn't matter which colour, because now I'm convinced that either way, clean or not, she will fight for every moment and give her skate every bit she has, and it would be wonderful to watch her. It was so lovely to see her smile on the podium on Saturday!

I like her LP and thought it was very creative in choreography before I see this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4d9HL-X6q08 and this:

I guess I've found all the inspirations for the choreography:)

As much as I admire Caro's ability to generate speed so easily, I felt something was missing. After seeing these video I believe what Caro missed was a clear mood or character, or passion. She skated beautifully but seems without purpose.
