    Great interview. A lot of other skaters peaked early and had declining senior careers, but Kostner really became much better in the last third of her senior career.

    Excellent interview! You really get insight into her personality and I love the questions that were more about the process behind the skating and choreography.

    The interviewer sometimes drops by FSU and maybe will see the positive feedback here. :)

    I hope she is an inspiration to young skaters to not give up too quickly. The best is often yet to come!

    Caro is an inspiring angel on the ice! Her skating has been a true gift to watch all these years and her experiences on the ice have provided many thoughtful life lessons on what it means to be a survivor who never gives up and who continues to fight no matter the circumstances, much like her idol, Michelle Kwan. I wish her much happiness and greatness in all she pursues in life! :encore::cheer2:

    Two great articles/interviews. It's been a privilege to watch her skating develop over the years.

    I've read something similar to the above quote in another thread. It seems being free from CoP was really important to her and her skating.

    "I'm curious what I can do if I invest all that time (earlier spent worrying about rules) being creative, creating something enjoyable for the audience, something that really fits the music."

    Remember when a successful amateur competitive skating career actually led to a professional career in ice shows that paid decently? It's too bad ice shows seem to have lost their audience because this should be the reward for those who proved what they could do under the pressure and demanding technical requirements of competition.
