    Season 2005/2006:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0iOtQ...eature=related - 2006 SP at OG in Torino
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8NBNa9X-4MU - 2006 Euros LP

    Season 2006/2007:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qSCT15IRpU - 2007 Worlds SP
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hh2ml...eature=related - 2007 Euros LP

    Season 2007/2008:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TdNyq...eature=related - SP at 2007 CoC
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qcC3MX1xVfM - 2008 Worlds LP

    Enjoy!
    Thank you for all the links! so many beautiful programs. and her footwork sequences are always highlights for me. I don't think there is another skater in the women's field who does them better.

    THIS. The jerkiness she once had is now gone.

    While she is pacing herself more and taking her time to set up the jumps, she actually ends up looking less telegraphed, if that makes sense.

    When i first saw Carolina back in 2006 at the Olympics she was skating so fast i though she was going to crash right into the boards she seemed so out of control.

    A touching moment. The program is beautifull. And I remember that fall, I felt so bad for her. But the reaction of the crowd is amazing ! That's why sport is so good.
    After the 3Loop, she looked delivered, too bad she didn't skate the whole program that way.

    Actually Carolina nailed a gorgeous triple flip-triple toeloop in the warm-up (see the Eurosport coverage!) and I remember Barbara Underhill ( she was one of the commentators for CBC) saying she looked really really sharp in the warm-up as well. Such a shame she couldn't deliver it but oh yeah... a great learning experience anyway.

    You are welcome. I think her footwork would be even more amazing without COP - you have to do so much in so little time, a bit it tends to kill the flow. I'd rather wish to see one step element less but more flow, it would highlight her qualities even more. But I understand that Caro of course needs the levels as anyone else.

    I'll continue with seasons 2009 and 2010:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HH60o...eature=related - 2009 Worlds SP
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mlsxVR0VLX8 - 2009 Euros LP

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyM_G...eature=related - 2010 Euros SP
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49l915RUHPY - 2010 Worlds LP

    More will follow later on.

    Thank you for providing more links
    I think that is one of the biggest issues people have with COP...how busy the programs can look and feel. but Caro's footwork and programs make me forget about all that.

    I just love the sophistication in her movement; she really knows how to make the choreography come alive. and I appreciate that she is willing to experiment like she did in her SP this year.

    I didn't used to like Carolina because there was something coltish about the way she moved her upper body. I have NO idea exactly what was done between the 09/10 and 10/11 seasons, but something changed, and I noticed a big difference in her quality of movement. These days, she looks so refined and elegant. The lack of a Lutz doesn't really bother me at all. I was sad to see her Debussy program go at the end of last season!

    Thanks for all the videos, Katarzyna! You always picked the competitions where she performed them to its best, but I think this year's SP she skated even better at World Team Trophy. WOW, it was just amazing!

    If you watch carefully, you can see that the performance at WTT (as well as at Worlds and at Challenge CUp) was modified. Infact, Carolina made changes to both of her programs after Europeans. But what is very significantly different about this short program is the step sequence and it's SOOOO good.

    You are welcome. I was actually thinking of posting a link to her WTT SP, but didn't want to spoil anyone as the competition had not been over yet. Thank you for posting the link now!

    I think her SP this season is a masterpiece; I love her LP as well, but slightly prefer her Debussey LP from last year.

    So glad to see others jumping on the Caro-wagon. I've lurved her since her 2004 Euro "debut."

    I'm a couple of weeks late, but I have to get this out of my system:

    CONGRATULATION CAROLINAAAAA!!!!!!! Watching her LP live on TV was one of my happiest FS-watching moments ever. I don't remember being so happy after a lady's LP performance at a Worlds championship since... Irina in 2005!!!!

    Congratulations to the WORLD CHAMPION!!!! Her spins and jumps have NEVER looked more steady than they did that night!! It's moments like these (Far and few as they may be) that makes me LOVE this sport

    CAROLINA KOSTNER!!!!!

    I've watched her free from this season's Skate America quite a few times now.
    I don't know why but that's my favourite skate of Carolina's this season.
    I loved the music & how she skates to it.
