    I must say that this has got to be one of Carolina's best exhibition programs! I usually was never a big fan of her up-beat gala programs, I just like her lyrical much much better, but this is such a fun, charming and entertaining program! I hope we can get an HQ vid from All That Skate soon.

    Good to see her exhibiton numbers moving in a different direction compared to the competitive programmes. Are there any news on her status, i.e. if she will stay eligible or not?

    ^ No, she said in several interviews that she will take her time to decide whether she will keep competing or not. I don't know when she will have the time to properly relax and reflect though, her schedule for the next couple of weeks is super busy and she has been very busy since Worlds too. I guess once GP assignments are released, we might hear something concerning her decision.

    Here is a HQ version of "It's Oh So Quiet" at All That Skate. Brilliant, she totally rocks it!!!

    I like the idea of her being too busy to make a decision as I so badly want her to stay eligible.

    YEAH! Congrats!
    Will the winners of each month compete against each other for kind of Athlete of the year award?

    I hope she stays and competes until Sochi.. I know she often screws up at the Olympics but she really has a better chance of winning a medal this time around, as she was never World Champion before either.

    I think it's not only being a World Champion what will give her a better chance to win a medal, but also the fact that it looks like she has now learned how to control her nerves. And I admit a couple of years ago I thought this would never happen - sometimes it's just so good to be wrong.

    There seems to be a real enjoyment in her skating these days and she just looks very happy and at peace. It is like the pressure is off and she can relax.
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    I wonder when she will announce whether she will stay competitive or not. GP assignments are released later this month, right? I know she has been terribly busy since Worlds and probably hasn't had time to properly sit down and reflect yet.

    I guess there is a possibility that she will not do the GP but maybe come back for Euros? But on the other hand, the more competitions she does the better and more consistent she has become during seasons ...

    I will miss her terribly if she decides to retire

    Carolina is a joy to watch. Hope she will go on to Sochi.

    I don't think so, she said either she will compete or retire, she don't like the half way.

    One more reason to like her. I'm not really fond of skaters skipping the GP and then competing only at major events like Euros, 4CC or Worlds.

    ^ me neither It's true, she has always said that either she will retire officially and then only do shows. If she stays in competition, she wants to do it 100%. I wonder when she decides ...

    Some news
    Carolina has been honoured by Italian President Giorgio Napolitano for her achievements: http://www.sportnews.bz/index.php?id...8c772808deae86

    Thank you for the update! Good for Carolina to receive more honours!

    However, I hardly can imagine her doing service in a jailhouse.

    (As the link is in German, for those not able to read the article - she has been promoted to the rank of a major jailhouse constable in relation to her service unit)

    Some news, seems like Carolina hasn't decided whether she will continue competing or not, she signed up for the GP just in case. Here is a video for everyone speaking Italian: http://video.gazzetta.it/?vxSiteId=f...&vxBitrate=300

    Opera on Ice 2012 will take place on September 22, starring Carolina, Stéphane, Evgeni, Aliona/Robin and Anna/Luca: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...type=1&theater

    Photos of Carolina as testimonial of Axel Roma (no idea what that is): http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...7982315&type=1

    Carolina being interviewed live on BBC radio yesterday, starting at 03:12:00 http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00t6c6h
