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.

I'll continue with seasons 2009 and 2010:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mlsxVR0VLX8 - 2009 Euros LP
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyM_G...eature=related - 2010 Euros SP

More will follow later on.
Carolina just scored a personal best in the short, 69.48!!!
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.
You are welcome, Bournekraatzfan! Here are the remaining links to Caro’s competitive programmes:

Season 2012 (well, we’ve just seen them not a long time ago, but I couldn’t resist. I can rewatch them just on and on in particular Worlds LP – make me happy again every time I see it:

I am so proud of Caro. What a season for her:
New personal best SP
New personal best FP
New personal best combined
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!
Beautiful facial expression! Thanks for the pic, jiggs!
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
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.
