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."

Thoughts...

It's quite clear that Kim Yu Na is by far the best skater at the moment.

Kostner is overrated.:p The judges always give her more points then she deserve so I'm not surprised she become No.1 eventually. Yu Na Kim is the best.
(Though my love in figure skating is Sarah Meier:hearts:)

I'm less shocked about rankings and more shocked about the fact that people still watch/care about figure skating. :o

i'm not kidding. this was an official press release. it came with the destination top skaters were being sent for the isu events in the fall. the rankings should reflect the last year, not the last two. still, both asada and kim have completely outperformed carolina in the last two years, so i don't understand how she can be ranked number one. i need an outline. i completely agree with everyone that yu na kim is head and shoulders above everyone else. although, i hope asada can step up her game and get back to the top. i want a great olympics...

ps-i'm happy cohen is back.
