Carolina Kostner-World #1 Female Figure Skater???!!!
Hi everyone. I love Carolina Kostner, but was completely shocked and frustrated after reading that she had become the new world number one figure skater in the world. How can this be possible considering how badly she skated this season. It's appalling. The system needs to examined and restructured so that this atrocity does not happen again.
"Kostner has become the world No. 1 female skater after edging Kim Yu-na by 21 points. The Italian earned 3,861 points, while Kim had 3,840. Asada came in third with 3,699. The standings are based on results from the World Championships, Winter Olympics, Grand Prix series and ISU-organized events over the last two years. After capturing the World Championship title, Kim climbed to top spot with 4,652, but the loss of scores from the 2006 season ― a third-place finish in the World Championships and first in the Grand Prix final along with gold and bronze medals in the Grand Prix series ― saw her dethroned."
