    Fantastic performance by Adelina. Congrats.
    Right now I would just like to see the faces of all of those that said that Adelina was such a headcase that she would never make it in big competitions. By the way, I would also like to see the yellow smiles of those who said Carolina didn't have it in her to make it to the OG podium. Well done girls.

    She definitely wins a gold medal for the biggest thrash and disgrace in skating history. I hope her fans enjoy her being the most ridiculed skater in skating history in the coming years.

    I thought she was -- I was wrong. I liked her, but I had no expectations of her at all. But she had what it took in the end.

    Hear, hear!

    I remember predicting that Adelina would win the gold in Sochi a few years ago. Of course, I also thought at that time that Kim wouldn't be around by then, and when it turned out that Kim would be, I was convinced that Kim would be unbeatable, so that's it for me as far as predictions go. This time I'm happy to be proven wrong, though.

    I'm not in teknik, but to me the quality of Adelina's jumps were on par with Kim's, and it's obvious that Adelina's technical content was more difficult. Kim won out on PCS, didn't she? So Adelina won outright based on TES, and deservedly so. She also skated with a whole lot more fire and intensity than Kim, so it just feels right that she did win.

    Congrats, Adelina! Russia's first ever OGM in ladies' singles skating! Woohoo!

    Congrats to Adelina but this margin between the two skaters (not to mention Kostner) is ridiculous. Adelina's PCS should be significantly lower IMO. Oh well, what can one do. Such is the nature of the sport and the judges obviously saw something in Adelina both yesterday and today that they hadn't seen before.

    “It was totally fair,” said Elvis Stojko, the two-time Olympic silver medalist from Canada. “Adelina was ready. Kim didn’t have enough technical ammunition.”

    “She’s not as aesthetically pleasing to watch as Yu-na Kim or Carolina Kostner, but looking through all the criteria, she answers every one of them,” said Scott Hamilton, the 1984 Olympic champion. “It has truly become a numbers game, and you’ve got to make sure everything is accounted for.”
    With her victory, our sport has taken three steps backwards.

    CONGRATULATIONS TO RUSSIA'S 1ST EVER LADIES OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST *ADELINA SOTNIKOVA*

    She's been my favorite out of the Russian women since I first saw her years ago. Finally, she realizes her potential (not full yet b/c she has LOTS more to give) on the biggest stage in the world. I knew it was going to be tight, but her tech. rightfully blew everybody else away.

    Reminds me of one of my all-time favorites (aka Sarah Hughes) win in 2002, though Sarah skated perfectly whereas Adelina had one minor bobble on the 3/2/2 combo. No biggie. They also both had the very very rare distinction of winning the big ONE on home ice, even harder to do in front of one's country!

    Just goes to show one it's anybody's game. Same as Tara in 1998, Oksana in 1994, Max in 2013...

    and what will happen to the sport when Adelina wins a second OGM in 2018?
    Heck, Adelina is young enough and talented enough to even try for three Olympics.

    I was pretty sure when Adelina finished her LP that she had done enough to win. And I thought Carolina was amazing but Adelina had a big tech advantage over her.

    Under 6.0 Carolina probably would have won for such beautifully skated programs.

    Behold the new Golden girl at the flower ceremony.
