    I won't say how I feel about the results as I have not seen them yet, but I feel badly for Adelina. All this controversy surrounding what should be the greated night of her life, and she's still so young. And from now on when she skates, she might feel that she has to prove herself, and she was already a headcasey skater to begin with. I really hope people stop blaming her for what the judges might have done.

    This morning they said Kim makes 14 million a year. Its someone else's turn. Sotnikova seems like a nice kid.

    So happy for her.
    She is not my favourite skater but she skated so well for the Gold.
    After being left out of the team event she wanted to prove herself & she did.
    Just because this result was close does not mean she does not deserve this.
    A Russian girl won in Russia because she EARNED it......on the ice.

    Adelina probably doesn't know there is a controversy over her win. She's in a bubble right now at the Olympics being surrounded by screaming Russians telling her how wonderful she is.

    Adelina gave it everything she had and held nothing back. I always wondered what her scoring potential would be if she skated this way and went clean.

    Now I know the answer and if she received a hometown boost so have many other skaters over the years.
    I have followed Adelina since she was 12 and thought several years ago she would win the OGM in Sochi. Yes, doubts crept in the last year or two as she struggled with a growth spurt and lost her consistency. But the talent was always there and now we also know she has the heart of a champion.

    Everyone has their favorites but Adelina really skated great. Could the podium order have been different? Sure, a different panel or a different location could have changed the results.

    But what won't ever change is that Adelina, skating under the brightest of lights had the skate of her young life.
    I am happy for her and look forward to seeing her skate at Worlds and continuing her career next season.

    I forgot to mention this - but holy cow, Adelina has such big jumps!

    Seriously? At the Olympics? With all of those mics shoved in faces? Anywho....
    She steered clear of any judging controversy.

    "Any questions are for the judges, not for me. I did my job. I gave a gift to Russia," said a jubilant Sotnikova, who had nervously paced the corridors backstage and was seen biting her fist as she waiting for Kim to finish her programme.

    While you're at it, find the quote by Adelina saying she's on cloud nine and it's the best day of her life. Like Ashley Wagner said, paraphrasing here, the world could blow up and she wouldn't know because all the athletes are in a bubble. If it took Oksana 8 years to realize that her win was controversial, then yeah I can believe that less than 12 hours after her win, Adelina is unaware of the massive outrage over her victory especially when she's surrounded by Russians. The realization will come in time but I doubt it's registered yet.

    Scott agreed with the result. Dr.Siouxs said it was a step back. Unless that's Scott Hamilton.

    Congrats, Adelina.

    But her win is on par w/ Annett Poetzsch and Oksana Baiul, a head scratcher that will fuel sniping, a bit of controversy and never be embraced by a sizable minority

    She's in a kinda lose/lose situation. If she retires, she'll get the fluke treatment from now on. If she continues, she'll be under an unflattering microscope that shredded Hughes and Meisner. Or maybe she's the new Kat Witt. I doubt it, but one can hope.

    I thought she deserved the win. Yuna didn't seem to care, though she was lovely.

    So you know, PUTIN IS VERY HAPPY and my guess is that Adelina is looking at a win-win situation for herself and her family.
    In Russia she is the "Golden Girl" and Russia is a big place.

    "In a message published on the Kremlin's website, Putin said Sotnikova "won and conquered the height that our figure skating team has been working for long years ... the whole Russia is proud of you."

    "The president also issued an official congratulation for Sotnikova on Thursday night."
