Adelina Sotnikova at Skate America 2012

2013 European silver medalist Adelina Sotnikova of Russia returned from Japan after participation at the Mao Asada’s show “The Ice” and announced her new short program.

“In the Olympic season my short program will be “Carmen”. I really like the program and feel myself very different in it. You know, Carmen is a woman who first wins the hearts and then makes it clear: ha, you’re not in my taste!” smiling Sotnikova told Team-Russia 2014.

“We listened to different music and one day we got a lot of Spanish music. Among the recordings was “Carmen”. But the music for my program is not the usual or hackneyed. It has an original musical design. It’s very interesting, dramatic and beautiful! I think this year I will be able to make an impression already by my short program.” she continued.

Russian figure skater is very happy with her performances at the ice show in Japan.

“This year, the show was very good. Everything was easy and I felt somehow more free and liberated than ever before. I’m very pleased how I felt and how I skated. Japanese fans received us with a great delight, as always!” she added.
