My favorite skaters are Osmond, Daleman, Li, and Wagner who never had a hope to medal here so try again. I cant stand any of the current top 3, but it is obvious to even a blind man the other 2 were atleast a good 5 points better.
Adelina really brought her A game today. Congrats to her on a great skate. I hope she skates a clean and strong LP tomorrow.
Granted, I'm out of touch, but this girl came out of left field didn't she? Makes you wonder why the Russians hung their hat on Lipnitskaia for the team competition. Maybe it was to keep Sotnikova fresh for the individual competition?
The commentators thought that Sotnikova was mad about all the Lipnitskaia attention this past week. That's what got her so fired up today. Lipinski said, "If you ever get a chance to skate mad, I highly recommend it." or something to that effect.
I hope she can repeat this type of performance in the long
Those who never succeed themselves are always the first to tell you how.
Well done, Sotnikova. She really did a great job and brought her A short today. Hope she can keep it together in her long and do herself proud.
Time and time again, these competitions turn into simple mind games. Whomever comes from behind, and has no pressure on them, has the advantage. The exception to the rule would be someone like Yuna Kim, who can be under enormous pressure and still perform.
Very happy with her skate today, and her position for tomorrow. Go Adelina!
I love her attitude, skating skills and beautiful jumps. Hope she can pull off a strong LP tomorrow.
OMG!!!! Congrtas Adelina what a skate!!!
Fantastic performance today in FS!
Our girl is golden
