View Full Version : Carolina Kostner

21st April 2008, 01:04

Carolina Kostner (born February 8, 1987 in Bolzano, Italy), is an Italian figure skater. She is the 2007 & 2008 European champion and the 2008 World Silver Medalist.

Carolina Kostner is the daughter of Patrizia, who was a nationally ranked figure skater in the 1970s, and Erwin, who played ice hockey for the Italian national team at the World Championships and Olympic Games. She has two brothers. Kostner is the cousin and godchild of Isolde Kostner, a silver medalist in alpine skiing at the 2002 Winter Olympics. She has dated fellow figure skater and 2006 Olympic silver medalist, Stéphane Lambiel, in the past.

Kostner speaks Ladin at home, and also speaks fluent German, Italian, English and some French. She completed her secondary education in Oberstdorf in June 2007 and announced plans to enroll at the University of Torino (Turin) in the fall of 2007, continuing to train with Huth in Germany and splitting her time between Obertsdorf and Turin.

Kostner made her senior European debut in the 2002-2003 season, finishing 4th at the European championships. Later that year, she became the first Italian skater to medal at Junior Worlds, winning a bronze. In 2004, she finished 5th at Europeans and at Worlds, and in 2005 finished 7th at Europeans before narrowly edging Michelle Kwan for a bronze medal at the World Championships in Moscow. Kostner was chosen to be flag bearer for the host Italian team during the opening ceremony of the 2006 Winter Olympics. She had a disappointing Olympics, finishing in 9th place, and later finished in 12th place at 2006 Worlds. The next two seasons brought better results for Kostner: she won the Euopean title in 2007 and 2008, won the bronze at the 2007-8 Grand Prix Final, and was the silver medalist at the 2008 World Championships, behind Japanese skater Mao Asada. Kostner is ranked third in the world as of March 2008.

Kostner is renowned for her commanding speed over the ice and her ability to land triple-triple combinations, most consistently the triple flip-triple toe. In practices she has landed three jump triple-triple-triple combinations. When her home rink closed in 2001, Carolina set out on an international search for a new coach and training center and chose to work with Michael Huth in Oberstdorf, Germany, about a four hour drive from her home in Bolzano. She continues to work with Michael Huth as her primary trainer and uses a mix of choreographers including her longtime choreographer, Megan Smith, and stars such as Kurt Browning and Lori Nichol.

Bravo Adelina! Carolina merita si un thread pro nu numai unul anti. Ma repet, mie mi-a placut de cand era junioara, avea o gratie aparte si o are, chiar daca a mai crescut. Si apoi, e campioana noastra europeana, nu? Munceste din greu impotriva japonezelor, americancelor.......

"Kostner speaks Ladin at home" ??? trebuie sa ma documentez despre asta!!!

21st April 2008, 20:30
:) Ma bucur ca esti de acord cu mine..si eu cred ca ii trebuia si un thread pro:P
Si eu m-am mirat cand am citit "ladin" o fi latin..si or fi gresit:thinkso: sau o fi vre-un dialect de prin Italia..oricum stiu ca difera limba vorbita in sud(sa zicem) fata de cea nordica.

In legatura cu facultatea: o stii ea mai bine de ce:P
Si da pe threadul asta fara rautati:)

Kostner speaks Ladin at home, and also speaks fluent German, Italian, English and some French.

Am aflat ce inseamna dialectul Ladin: este dialectul ebraico-spaniol, asa cum idis este dialectul ebraico-german,

good to know. eu credeam ca idis e limba tuturor evreilor : insert ashamed smile :

Kostner speaks Ladin at home, and also speaks fluent German, Italian, English and some French.
Pardon!! Am facut o confuzie de informatii in legatura cu dialectul Ladin!

Not to be confused with Ladino language.
Ladin (Ladino in Italian, Ladin in Ladin, Ladinisch in German) is a Rhaeto-Romance language spoken in the Dolomite mountains in Italy between the regions of Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol and Veneto. It is closely related to the Swiss Romansh and Friulian.

Ladin should not be confused with Ladino (also called Judaeo-Spanish), which is a Romance language derived mainly from Spanish, Hebrew, Turkish, and Greek.

(Romanian language is also a Romance language.)

OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT to all Carolina fans and figure skating fans.

We would like to inform you that the complaint submitted by the Italian Skating Federation (FISG) to the ISU concerning the marks Carolina received by the technical pannel for the long program at the European Figure Skating Championships HAS BEEN ACCEPTED and will be discussed by the ISU commission. The Italian Skating Federations (FISG) will update us as soon as the ISU provides the official release with the final decision.

A spin in Carolina's long program was not counted - not because she made a mistake but because of a debatable interpretation of the rules, therefore the "sit spin" was called a "combination spin".
Carolina lost gold not for something she has not done but because of a quarter of revolution over the maximum of revolutions allowed in upright position at the end of her sit spin.

On Carolina's behalf, thanks everyone for your support!

Mancini Group - Carolina's management

Cat caz se poate face....de parca ar schimba cu ceva situatia!:groggy:

28th January 2009, 01:09
nu vad nimic rau in asta.
unele lucruri trebuie luate in discutie pentru a nu se mai intampla altadata asa ceva.
nu i se poate intampla doar Carolinei.

28th January 2009, 01:11
mda....oricum aurul tot nu il mai poate lua....si crezi ca daca a facut chestia asta nu o sa se mai poata intampla?sa fim seriosi....

28th January 2009, 01:13
nu trebuie sa ia aurul, dar la fiecare competitie trebuie sa castige cine merita.
nu cred ca au facut-o intentionat, dar neclaritatile trebuie discutate...

28th January 2009, 01:27
corect,daca asta e dorinta ei....e libera sa depuna contestatie!:P

Am pus si pe topicul probei feminine de la CE dar pun si aici:
ISU Quickly Dismissed Kostner's Scoring Protest

The International Skating Union (ISU) immediately dealt with protest over the scoring of Carolina Kostner’s long program at the 2009 European Championships, according to an ISU official.

"As per Rule 123 of the ISU General Regulations 2008, no protest is allowed for field of play decisions. Therefore the result as published is final," ISU Media Coordinator Devra Pitt Getaz told International Figure Skating.

A miscommunication appears to have occurred regarding the protest. According to the Mancini Group, which represents Kostner, a "complaint submitted by the Italian Skating Federation (FISG) to the ISU” concerning Kostner’s marks by the technical panel for the long program at the European Championships was “accepted" and would "be discussed by the ISU commission.”

Pitt Getaz shot down that statement. "At no time did the ISU 'accept' any such protest and at no time did a 'commission' have a hearing about this. ... There was a protest filed by the Italian member (FISG) on Saturday, January 24, which was immediately dismissed in writing by the referee in accordance with Rule 123," she said.

The notice from the management group was posted on Kostner's official website after the competition but no longer appears on the site. Instead the home page notes Kostner is the 2009 European silver medalist.

The post regarding the issue noted: “a spin in Carolina’s long program was not counted — not because she made a mistake but because of a debatable interpretation of the rules, therefore the 'sit spin' was called a 'combination spin.'"

Kostner went into the 2009 European Championships in Helsinki as the two-time and defending champion. She was dethroned by Finland’s Laura Lepistö.

Lepistö won the competition with an overall competition mark of 167.32 points to Kostner's 165.42.

ISU Rule 123, section 4 (Protest Restrictions) states:

"No protests against evaluations by Referees, Judges and the Technical Panel (Technical Controller, Technical Specialists, Data Operator, Replay Operator) of Skaters’ performances are allowed;

"Protests against results are permitted only in the case of incorrect mathematical calculation. A wrong identification of an element or of a level of difficulty, although it results in a lower or higher score, is a human error and not an incorrect mathematical calculation;

"However, if the Referee learns: prior to the beginning of the award ceremony or prior to the official announcement of results if there is no award ceremony, that a human error relating to a wrong data input by the Data Operator occurred, the Referee may correct the error provided that the Technical Controller, both Technical Specialists and the Data Operator all agree that there was an error. ..."

The rule indicates that protests regarding “incorrect mathematical calculation” may be filed within 24 hours after the completion of the competition concerned.

Finland’s figure skating federation and Lespito had no comment on the situation.

Emails to Kostner’s management group (seeking comment from Kostner and her manager), and the Italian federation were not answered.

She is equal parts charm, grace, athleticism and beauty.

Carolina Kostner, it seems, is destined to turn heads. Whether it is with the speed and power that she displays on the ice or the new heights to which she takes figure skating in her homeland, the 22-year-old Italian star is not easily ignored.

When Kostner climbed to the second step of the 2008 World podium in Sweden, it put her ever closer to a date with history.


Her beaming smile lit up the opening ceremony at the Olympic Winter Games in Torino just two years prior. Kostner’s mere presence as the host nation’s flag bearer was deemed a symbol of everything that is good and right about sport in Italy today.

Yet there is something so natural, so "girl next door" about a young woman who seems content far beyond the glare of the spotlight, but who has learned to embrace it when it shines the brightest.

"She has something as a skater that makes her special for our sport," said coach Michael Huth, who guides Kostner’s fortunes from his base in Oberstdorf, Germany. "A champion needs something like this."

Four-time World champion Kurt Browning, one of Kostner’s skating idols, sees a much simpler person when she performs - even as her amazing talent shines through.

"So far, her choreography choices have been traditional, but that’s her," said Browning, who helped Kostner craft her programs for the 2005-06 Olympic season. "She wants to be pretty, but she doesn’t mind if another girl walks into the room and takes the spotlight. She’s very content with herself and is a lovely, lovely soul."


Almost eight years later, Kostner’s modesty is such that she still wonders what made Huth take her under his wing when she was in need of a new skating home. Her burgeoning talent, combined with the fact that the rink in her tiny hometown of Ortisei in the Dolomite Mountains in northern Italy was destroyed by a landslide, meant it was time to move on.

"I would love to ask him one day what made him take me," said Kostner, who attended one of Huth’s summer camps before the duo joined forces. "I was just 14. I did my first [junior] Grand Prix and had three triples. I had no good spins, no big steps, no good programs. I was really lucky that he took me. He really pulled out what [talent] I had and taught me how to skate and prepare."

Under Huth’s tutelage, Kostner has risen to the elite circle of women’s skating. A two-time World medalist, Kostner made history when she won the 2007 European title, the first Italian woman ever to do so. The two-time European champion (2007-08) had to settle for silver place this year. Kostner has also won bronze medals in the last two ISU Grand Prix Finals, winning her second bronze last December in Korea.

"She was a junior skater and went into the ladies senior competitions when she was 15 years old," Huth said about the prodigy he quickly realized he had on his hands. "She ranked behind (Irina) Slutskaya and (Elena) Sokolova, but she was really close to them already."


Today Kostner stands on the brink of giving Italy something it has never had - a World or Olympic champion in a discipline other than ice dance. Much as either distinction would fill her with great pride, it doesn’t consume her.

"Honestly, it would be a great honor, but I don’t care so much about records or being the first Italian [champion]," she said. "It doesn’t matter too much to me. It would matter more the fact that I could be the best I can be, and the work [I have done] is paid back and that you win honestly.

"You really win because you were the best that day, and that’s what matters the most to me."

Indeed, tales of Kostner’s sportsmanship are legion throughout the skating world. In a book about Japanese ladies skaters released in Japan, former World champion Miki Ando tells a story about the 2003 World junior event, in which she was downcast after a poor short program. Kostner would not let Ando stay down for long.

"You will do wonderfully in the long program," she told Ando before giving her a supportive hug. Ando went on to win the silver medal; Kostner, the bronze.


Browning speaks with amazement about a day when the choreographer of one of Kostner’s major competitors arrived at their training rink in Toronto, still desperately in need of the right piece of music for a program.

Almost without hesitation, Kostner turned to Browning and offered to give up music she loved but did not plan to use that season. "That’s Carolina," said Browning with a smile and an exclamation point.

It is not just her way. She believes it is the only way. "I think [sportsmanship] is one of the most important things because if you respect them, they respect you," Kostner said. "We all respect the sport so much. The traditions are kept well in the sport. ... I think as an athlete, you have to be humble. It’s very important because otherwise, you could lose your temper, and you need that strength to go back to the rink every day."

But can nice translate into po****rity?

"Only if [the fans] get to know her," Browning said. "Scott Hamilton always told me it’s important to skate well, but it is more important to do a good interview afterward. When a skater’s personality becomes a part of their skating, then it allows people to forgive. It just starts to be a relationship back and forth.

"It’s not just, ‘Oh, remember that girl from Italy?’ Then she becomes a person skating. It takes time to do that, and it takes interviews. She loves interviews, and she’s really good at interviews."

She eagerly tackles them in any of the five languages she speaks - Italian, German, English, French and Ladin, the local dialect Kostner speaks at home. "Being able to talk to a person in their own language makes you feel so much closer to them, rather than not being able to understand," she said.


Kostner’s grace faced its supreme test in 2006, when she was asked to carry the Italian flag into Stadio Olimpico during the opening ceremony at the Olympic Winter Games in her homeland. It remains one of the proudest moments of her life, but at the time it was something much, much different.

"I was a little bit intimidated by that," she said. "We had so many [World] champions in Italy, and I was not yet a champion. It was intimidating. I asked, ‘Why would they want me?’ On the other hand, I thought it was such a great honor that they put that trust in a young girl.

"It was quite difficult to accept afterward that I couldn’t keep up with their hopes." Kostner, the reigning World bronze medalist at the time, knew that at least that much was expected in her home Olympic Games. There was no hiding from the pressure or the expectations. They were in her face at almost every turn.

"It was palpable. It was tangible when I was working with her," Browning said. "You could feel it. I think there were massive expectations on her, and they were vocalized to her. I don’t think it was subtle. It was, ‘You have to do this.’"

Huth, who watched his pupil finish ninth, said, "She was not ready for this situation and tried her best, but she could not enjoy those Games."

"There was a lot of pressure," Kostner admitted. "It was not normal because I hadn’t been confronted by something like that before. Yes, I did interviews, but I never had to deal with a thing like that before in any competition.

"It just came all at once, and the big life lesson came all at once. It was just to accept your fate and accept that in the end, victory depends on the four-minute skate, but [your life] cannot depend on a four-minute skate.

"There is so much more than a victory, and so much more than a moment. You can’t give up on your dreams. There are many more chances you can take, and there may be better chances."

Perhaps that is why the opening ceremony remains at the forefront of her Olympic memories. "When I walked in there, I think I just felt very happy," Kostner said. "We had so much fun, and you try to enjoy each moment because you know it will never come back. You know it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It was just breathtaking. I would never want to trade it for a medal."

Huth firmly believes the Torino experience - both the good and the bad - has made Kostner stronger in sport and in life. Or maybe, it just reinforced everything that Kostner is about.

"I usually see the glass half full, not half empty," she said. "You have to. You have to because you have to know that an athlete’s world and life are not always going up. Actually, it needs to go down first to go up again. That’s just how it is. That’s what I learned from the Olympics.

"You need to love what you do, and I am sure the work will be rewarded one day."


Then again, all of this is just a testament to the sporting family that raised her and the environment in which she grew up. Kostner’s father, Erwin, is a former Olympian in ice hockey. She is the godchild and cousin of Isolde Kostner, a silver medalist in alpine skiing at the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City.

"She’s been frustrated at points in her career by her inability to seize the moment," said Browning, now a figure skating analyst for CBC television in Canada. "It’s been hard, but at the same time she’s got a great family life. She comes from a sporting family, and her siblings are doing big things, so the whole family isn’t just looking at her.

"I just think that she’s a well-rounded enough person to be able to watershed that sort of thing."

Kostner hopes to use her fame to help inspire further growth in a sport that has seen its po****rity in Italy boom since Torino. "I have to say I’m really proud of what it has become since the Olympics," she said. "Now people from the south and people from the islands know what figure skating is. When it comes on TV, so many people write on my website, and they say, ‘Finally, they are showing figure skating again. It’s such a nice sport.’

"It was never like that before. Of course, the first step was Barbara (Fusar-Poli) and Maurizio (Margaglio, the 2001 World champions in ice dance). Then through the Olympics, the interest grew so much and that is what I’m really proud of."

Though she spends little time there these days, Ortisei will always be a part of Kostner. When she goes home after her biggest triumphs, the town of approximately 4,500 people bursts with pride.

"It’s a lovely town, and it has many traditions," she said. "The people stick together. Whenever I come back from the World Championships, many people put banners out on their balconies to welcome me back. That’s what they do when any athlete comes back after having success at a competition. It’s a nice feeling."

Carolina Kostner leaves coach Michael Huth


5th June 2009, 00:09
Sincer, ma asteptam, existau si niste zvonuri ince de la sfarsitul mondialelor.
Sunt curioasa cine ar putea fi viitorul antrenor

5th June 2009, 00:28
Ce veste!
Sa vedem pe cine va alege....e putin cam tarziu sa schimbi antrenorul..mai ales ca e an olimpic.

5th June 2009, 01:15
Se vorbeste de Orser..dar nu stiu sigur vom vedea curand cine va fi alesul.

5th June 2009, 19:51
wha`?? de ce? :o:

5th June 2009, 19:58
pt ca a ratat titlul european si`a dat vina pe antrenor :cry:

5th June 2009, 23:50
Vero, Ade!
Cum bine zicea cineva de pe BJDG cred ca mai bine si-ar schimba psihologul(sau daca nu are, sa viziteze unul) si nu antrenorul.

6th June 2009, 00:45
Tomas a patit acelasi lucru anul trecut.
Cam mare coincidenta, s-ar putea ca Michael Huth sa fie prea dur si sa nu stie sa-i incurajeze.

La gazzetta dello sport a anuntat ca se antreneaza cu Frank Carol, fostul antrenor al lui Michelle Kwan.

putin despre "noua" Carolina


Ciudat, mie Carolina nu-mi place si-mi place in acelasi timp :D e cam pisicoasa ea pentru gustul meu, da pare o fata buna cu mult potential. Oricum mi-a fost mila rau de ea la mondiale, chiar trebuie sa invete sa-si controleze emotiile.
Si cred ca ar trebui sa o ia mai usor cu baletul ala :P sau ce face ea ca se vede influenta pe gheata si nu-i frumos sau sa schimbe coregraful si muzica mai ales. Coregrafia si muzica din programele competitive chiar nu i se potrivesc, in schimb unele programe de gala chiar imi plac, exemplu Solamente per Carolina sau Ave Maria.
Si ea ca si fostul iubit :D, Stephane, au niste alegeri ciudate cand vine vorba de costume, numai ca in cazul lui Stephane sunt ciudate si reusite :P Alegerile Carolinei in materie de costume chiar nu o avantajeaza (ea e cam inalta pentru sportul asta, iar cand patineaza i se vad picioarele si bratele asa lungi parca e o barza, ar trebui sa caute sa ascunda lucrul asta :) )

Ma rog, ma scuzati pt off, dar chiar simteam nevoia sa-mi exprim parerea :P

13th October 2009, 15:40
Nu e cazul sa te scuzi, e foarte bine ca ne spunem parerile, penru asta s-a inventat forumul...

Mie dimpotriva imi place muzica Carolinei, e deosebita fata de muzica clasica sau tango, e altceva. Si i se potriveste, o prinde. Nu multi patinatori ar reusi sa scoata ceva din muzica lui Dvorak (LP 2008), sau din Canonul lui Pachebel. (sp-ul de la CM Tokio e superb). Cel mai mult imi place muzica The Doors sp 2008, cel mai putin Memoriile unei gheise, LP 2007.
Despre costume nu ma pronunt, dar nu-mi amintesc sa ma fi deranjat ceva.

Dar abia astept sa vad cum va fi noua Carolina.

13th October 2009, 15:56
da, e adevarat, are stilul ei :) care e chiar diferit de al celorlalte patinatoare. Si cum am mai zis imi place si nu-mi place in acelasi timp. Poate am eu o anumita retinere fata de muzica pe care o alege, e cam cripy uneori, si costumele...cel mai mult mi-a placut cand a purtat pantaloni si rochia de la Worlds 2009.

nici mie nu mi`au placut niciodata costumele ei, ea e prea inalta...pe langa plopii fara sot :D

simona, nu esti deloc off, doar vorbim despre carolina. eu inainte o uram, acum imi e indiferenta. bine, unul dintre motive era ca era cu steph, si nah :P el era prea bun pt ea, nu se potriveau deloc. e bine ca a deschis ochii. acum e ok :P

13th October 2009, 22:09
ade-chan, erau si ei copii :P
Oricum, meritele de patinatoare trebuie sa i le recunoastem. Dar, daca m-as ocupa eu de vestimentatia Carolinei as imbraca-o cu rochii cu maneci lungi sau niste detalii aplicate pe brate, partea de jos a rochiei ar fi mai bufanta sau closh, in nici un caz dreapta sau in colturi :D....ce-am uitat??...decoteul sau ce mai avea ea cu siguranta nu l-as face in V (rochia de la LPul de anul asta a fost o alegere foarte buna :) ) . Fara toate astea mi se pare ca arata ca o scandura imbracata la cat e de inalta si slaba. nu zic ca in viata de zi cu zi nu ii sta bine dar pe gheata chiar nu-mi place cum se vede, si gata termin ca mai am putin si-o sa vreau sa-i iau locul lui Bote.

aaa...SI inca o chestie pe care nu o suport este faptul ca toate patinatoarele poarta patine albe. Pur si simplu nu imi place. de exemplu Aliona sau Sinead Kerr poarta patine bej (sper ca zic bine :P, oricum culoarea piciorului)si se vede mult mai frumos, parerea mea

Iar acum chiar inchei :D

14th October 2009, 02:50
Ade-chan, indiferenta e chiar mai rea decat ura :D

@Simona: Ba poti continua. threadul e dedicat discutiilor despre Caro! De orice fel. Pro si contra, off or on ice! :P
Si la mine e cam la fel - uneori imi place, alteori nu. in ultimul timp chiar a avut programe bune si la europene chiar as fi vrut sa castige! n-a fost sa fie.

din nou este imbracata oribil :groggy: ii sta super naspa...ea nu s`o vedea inainte ?

17th October 2009, 18:31
si SP-ul


ade-chan, si eu sunt de aceeasi parere. Ea ca ea, e stresata, ocupata, dar cine ii face costumele chiar nu stiu ce are in cap. Poate cea de la LP e mai ok. Oricum, imi pare bine pt ea ca pare ca si-a mai revenit, macar avea zambetul pe buze :)

17th October 2009, 19:06
eu nu as accepta sa port asa ceva, mai bine dezbracata :D

19th October 2009, 01:28

nu e chiar foarte nou, dar mie mi-au cam dat lacrimile sincer la el...nu stiu daca din cauza muzicii sau din cauza ca am revazut dezastrul pe l-a facut si fata ei dezamagita :(....sau poate amandoua :d

19th October 2009, 16:51
intr`adevar, foarte foarte bine realizat :rolleyes:

19th February 2010, 21:49
intr-adevar mai bine asa, sa taci si sa faci.
Eu chiar imi doresc sa castige si Caro o medalie dar nu mai vreau sa ma pronunt pt pana acum am dat-o total in bara cu pronosticurile si clasementele, mai bine sa fie o surpriza si ma bucur la sfarsit.

19th February 2010, 22:21
si eu tin cu ea! mai mult ca oricand vreau ca ea sa castige medalie, pt ca sarah sau kiira nu au sanse. de lepisto nici nu vreau sa aud, dar nici nu are vreo sansa, cred. macar caro din europa. dar cred ca o sa fie iar dominatie asiatica

este antrenorul si a lui tomas verner si mi se pare ca nici lui nu-i merge bine.
in 2008 a patinat foarte prost la campionatul mondial, iar ea in 2009 la campionatul mondial din los angeles.
sper sa ma insel si sa aiba rezultate bune in sezonul viitor.
eu as prefera sa se antreneze cu altcineva, poate cu taiana tarasova sau frank caroll.
oricum pe ea in momentul de fata nu o intereseaza decat sa fie aproape de alex, asa ca nu mai am pretentii mari de la ea.

Parca era Bambi pe gheata in 2003. Eu prima data am vazut-o in gala de la mondialele de la Moscova din 2005.(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHh5qsWtioU)
Nici macar nu am urmarit competitia fetelor (proba feminina a fost ultima care m-a cucerit si asta cand au aparut Mao si Yuna in 2007) dar am ramas socata ca a ratat podiumul Michelle Kwan si ca a batut-o o italianca de 16 ani :D si de atunci ii sunt fana. Pana sa imi fac curaj si sa scriu pe forum am citit inainte si parca nu era tocmai iubita Carolina, ma bucur sa vad ca lucrurile s-au schimbat si ca are atatia sustinatori

11th February 2013, 22:31
da, si eu am fost uimita sa vad ca nu prea era iubita. eu am intrat pe forum cu putin timp inaintea ta, si tot asa citeam de mai mult timp dar n-aveam curaj sa postez:) tot ce stiu despre patinaj stiu de pe acest forum si tare m-am bucurat cand l-am gasit:)

Carolina are probleme!!

Fostul prieten al Carolinei Alex Schwazer, atlet implicat intr-un caz de dopaj declara ca, Caro a spus inspectorilor WADA care il cautau pe Alex la ea acasa ca sa faca un test-surpriza pentru depistarea dopajului, ca el este plecat la Racines cand de fapt el era ascuns in casa. Caro a confirmat spusele lui Alex.
Carolina poate fi sanctionata fiindca l-a ajutat, conform articolului 28 din Codul Wada care spune ca este pasibil de sanctiuni cel care favorizeaza un atlet sa se dopeze sau sa se sustraga de la controlul antidoping.
O sanctiune ar putea fi interzicerea participarii Carolinei la gale si spectacole, ceea ce ar fi .....:headbang:

Four-year ban sought for Carolina Kostner

An Italian anti-doping prosecutor seeks a four-year ban for figure skater Carolina Kostner in an investigation into her ex-boyfriend and Olympic race-walking champion Alex Schwazer.
The 2008 Olympic champion Schwazer tested positive for EPO in 2012, was excluded from the London Olympics and banned for four years.

Prosecutors believe Kostner aided Schwazer in avoiding drug testers when they were together, which is why they are seeking the four-year ban. Kostner has denied wrongdoing.
Si pentru ca l-a ajutat sa i se dea atatia ani de suspendare! Mult prea multi! Sper sa nu se ajunga la asa ceva!
