Let me tell you just that: this new short program of Carolina Kostner, skated on “Ave Maria”, might have very well been one of the most powerful live figure skating experiences of my life as a fan. At the end of the routine I could have sworn I had tears in my eyes – and, actually, the two ladies sitting next to me were also looking for a handkerchief. I was totally conquered by this wonderful, ethereal, serene Carolina; and I’m truly grateful to her for offering everyone in the arena a moment that will stay with us forever. Do watch this performance. It will warm your heart.
