Carolina is a sentimental favorite
but I hope she retires
she is a World Champion and an Olympic medalist already
she has nothing else to prove unless she wants to become a Fumie Suguri
The situation in Italian team is different from Japanese. Carol could have a few more season without any real competitors. As long as she still enjoy skating, Italy more than happy to have her around.
but some will get tired of her
sooner or later the judges too will start to dump her and her PCS along with her TES will plummet if she continues
her technical prime has long passed, the udges already rewarded her win an OBM and WBM. I'd say Caro can now call it a Career !
I feel funny every time I have to say I agree with you. Since in this case you're not really OTT, I'm a bit more at ease. I understand your point and agree with it to some extent. But come on, chill out a bit here. Her age won't allow her to go for the whole quad anyway. One or two seasons won't hurt. She will be a major road block for up-and-coming skaters in a good way. Most of veterans either retire or take a break next season which means we're going to see a lot of jumping beans winning with ridiculous pcs. At least Carol will show us some more of her superior skating skills.
she'll look out of place, its all about the new blood skaters next season
her staying until 2018 is questionable, same as Mao's
