    Simply breathtaking!

    I just hope the pcs marking at worlds is fair and reaonable.

    People complained about Carolina's jump content last year, but I'd hate to see a 7 triple program of that caliber, if skated well, lose to a 6 triple free skate.

    Great for Carolina! But I sure hope she didn't get positive GOE for that 2ft Lutz. Her jump technique on all of her jumps is not up to par as of right now (at least not compared to last years technique!), hoping she has it all together by worlds :)

    Google Translate says: "Not bad. Good content, it lacks heart."

    Can't say I agree, though.

    Since when Carolina has been a real performer? How many real great performances has she ever given? Did she go out there every single time to show the audience how wonderful they believe their program to be, regardless of whether the jumps are on or not? At 2009 Worlds? 2010 Olympics? Even at her silver performance of 2008 Worlds?

    Kostner is one of the most gifted skaters ever and i don't mean her skating skills but the judges giving her marks that she didn't deserve.

    you are really going way back. She is a real performer since past Olympics, she had so much press from outside. But when she decided not to give up, she just would like to show how much she likes skating and continue only therefore, she become a great performer and has shown that. She connect to the public, has the best skating skills in ladies and goes out and do what she likes to do, skate out of her heart.
    And yes, falling_dance, the translation is right. I'm with you, she skated really with heart and with such a great intense. All the marks she get recently are well deserved and sometimes to low

    I know all you have to do is watch Yuna's SP at Worlds in 2007. Perhaps the best debut ever. Even Dick Button was almost speechless. And to think she was only 16.

    I think Korpi is really gonna surprise. She's got reasonable content, consistently goes for a triple-triple, and will get the PCS (near 30/60). I'm not saying she's a favourite to win a medal or anything, but she's definitely a stealth bomber candidate. She could easily be in the final group at Worlds.

    Osmond... you know, it's funny, we all want her in the top ten so Canada gets a second lady at the Olympics, except I can't think which lady is even remotely deserving of a second slot the way she is.

    The only reason anyone would want her to grab a second spot was if Joannie came back (don't worry I know it's 95% not happening ahah), then there would be room for the both of them. No one else in Canada is deserving of the spot as of now.
