    She's simply exquisite!

    I fell in love with "Bolero" the first time I saw it. The skater, the moves, the choreography, the music, the passion, everything just gelled. Lol I concede I was so entranced by it all I totally forgot about the jumps (the true mark of a phenomenal performer), only noticing the very last one, the 3salchow, which she did at the very end of the program, which made me sit up and take notice because only a master of said jump can put it in at the very last second (e.g. Keegan Messing's 3toe; btw always wanted Zhenya to do so with the 3axel, his $$$$ jump, still crossing my fingers one day he will do so).

    After 10 years of watching this beautiful doe, it feels good to see her finally coming into her own, seizing that 10-carat she always has been.

    What a joy it is to watch her skate! *bow:

    Some of those jumps are pretty impressive.

    IF she could do that in competition, she could beat Yu-Na and everyone else.

    This means her layout will probably be:

    3lz
    2a
    3f3t
    3l
    3t2t
    3sal2t2l
    3sal

    That is very ambitious. Curious to see what she does at Italian Nationals this weekend.

    It is quite ambitious. Also, if she misses the triple flip/triple toe combo she could turn the triple toe/double toe into a triple toe/triple toe and have that get the second half of program bonus. Nice strategy. Also looking forward to Italian Nationals

    I wonder why she wouldn't do

    2A-3T and 3F

    instead of

    3F-3T and 2A

    The first choice seems less risky, and scores the same points..

    I guess she is testing to add the 3Lz. And I'm not sure, if she tries the 3Lz, that she'll try a 3/3 or a 2A/3T.
    I guess the 2A/3T will be instead of the entering 3Luzt. JMHO.

    Here is Carolina's SP from Nationals yesterday: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6I1DF...ature=youtu.be

    Reports say she was amazing in practice and did all jumps amazingly, including 3lz and 3f3t. Long program takes place today, looking forward to seeing it in better quality.

    And here is the long program, with yes, 6 clean triples including the lutz. She would've won any event this year with her performances at Nationals

    This program is really amazing! So many interesting subtle nuances and I love how she always does a change of direction or turn right when the music changes as well. Beautiful phrasing and she really felt the Bolero rhythm throughout! Now just please turn that triple toe into a second triple flip and bring back the 2axel-3toe!

    That was terrific! I think I finally like another "Bolero" program!

    She really skated so great at Nationals. And now only waiting for Euros to see her live. Oh, I have to wait way to long time

    Her SP is very nice! I don't like the LP as much.

    The worlds will be so much more exciting than last year's! Hope everybody shows up healthy and ready.

    Taso, thank you for sharing the video. What an amazing program! Loved the choreography, great jumps, artistry - can't get any better than that. Bravo, Carolina!

    Those were two really beautiful programs showcasing what is IMO, the best lady skater in the world right now. Just the sheer quality of everything she does, the lines are amazing, her musicality spine tingling and the jumps, when they work, are every bit as good as anything anyone else has to offer. It will be interesting to watch this grow through Euro's and Worlds and whether or not she plans to upgrade further. I wasn't so impressed in Zagreb but maybe that was because she seemed quite far away and the jumps weren't working that day, but watching this it looks like a whole different program. Love all the changes of direction throughout and that final triple sal out of the choreo sequence made my jaw drop. Ok someone help me, I think I'm becoming a Caro uber!!
