Carolina Kostner – Italian Princess
Her season was up and down but anyway, for the Italy she is a Princess. Carolina has already established herself as the greatest figure skater in Italian history. Among her many firsts are the first to win a medal at the World Junior Figure Skating Championships, the first to win a silver medal at Worlds, the first to win Europeans, the first to win a Grand Prix event, and the first to medal at the ISU Grand Prix Final.
The technical content of Carolina’s programs is always quite high. Elements she can do perfectly: a triple flip-triple toeloop-double loop, a double Axel-triple toeloop, a triple Salchow-double toeloop combination, a double Axel, triple loop, triple flip, and triple Lutz. She like the Lutz,it’s her favorite jump.
Carolina, who is also known for her speed on the ice, can do almost any triple-triple combination.
Sometimes she make a mistakes in the technical part of the program,but her choreography is always perfect.
Carolina skied before she skated, taking after her cousin, Isolde Kostner, a three-time Olympic skier, by competing in the downhill. Then she took up skating, taking after her mother, Patrizia, who was a nationally ranked figure skater.
Carolina also is a very good student of the University of Torino. She always wanted to study art and architecture. Later she want to go into fashion or design. Art history give her a good base for that. Carolina love to read the books about the philosophy of art.
Carolina Kostner not only enjoys the competitive side of figure skating, but the fact that she gets to travel to see friends she only sees a few times a year. When at home, however, she tries to go the movies as often as it possible. Carolina prefers everything except science fiction movies. She find movies really relaxing and helps her forget worries. She also like to listen to music a lot. Usually she likes rock and movie soundtracks, but listen to classical music to calm her down. She isn’t a techno fan.
