It's honestly soo hard to find a positive comment about Adelina Sotnikova 😂😂
Song Yi Seo
seriously? is this the one that won the gold? wow olymic, if you let her and russia steal the gold from the one who should have won, you should be shame on you
International Skating Union?? Oh sorry I guess you said RUSSIAN Skating Union
Fiorella Tyrell
Both Yuna and Adelina had the skills but I felt nothing from this performance, no emotion whatsoever... Oh and my inner fashion critic just wanted to say....How dull that dress look. I mean, it's okay but not so striking at all.
I just love how Yuna's video is titled 'Yuna Kim Claims Silver With A Superb Performance' while this is just 'Sotnikova's Gold Medal Winning Performance'. The shade.

It’s been 4 years and I still get so triggered by her winning. Kim Yuna had a perfect performance. I get so emotional watching Kim Yuna’s performance. This girl wasn’t graceful AT ALL and I’m definitely not the only one that has this opinion.
“little bit of a dance at the finish” girl that was a two footed landing and you know it
Still salty about this in 2018
She is so stiff

The world knows that Yuna Kim is the best!
yogayoga oehe
two foot landing champion?
she must be the WORST olympic champion. what a shame RUSSIA!!
"a little bit of a dance at the finish" ??? what a big fking joke. I THINK U MEANT SHE TRIPPED AND ALMOST FELL.
What a shame. She will never be the star but the robber.
itsa tay
4 years later and I still dislike this performance with every bone in my body
I can see the flutz, underrotated and two foot landed jumps so clearly. She's just 21 even after 4 years, why doesn't she compete anymore? She just robbed Gold medal from Yuna and never comes back on the ice. This was her one and last Gold throughout her entire career.

I disagree with some of comments. She doesn't even deserve a silver. Thief.
I'd rather loose and come back to compete than win the gold medal and have everyone question my skills and forever compare me to the person they think the gold should have gone to.
For people who are sympathetic to this "innocent girl getting hate", it's not just her scores. It's her attitude. If you've seen her actions during the interview of the medalists and what her commentaries of other medalists were, among other things, you would clearly see that she is rude, has no manners, and feels absolutely no shame for the medal that she didn't deserve.
차라리 동메달을 뺏든가 좀 그럴듯한걸로 사기를 쳐야지ㅉ

She didn't deserve that gold. I wonder how she feels knowing that majority of the skating world think her gold is tainted.
Adelina is good but Kim Yuna was definitely better. It still breaks my heart that she was robbed of the gold medal.
Any person with emotions watching both skaters would know the difference straight away. yuna... yuna has this power to move you, to draw you in, to pull out all the emotions you never knew you had for this sport. just unspeakable grace. this girl is good, but i feel dead watching this.
cool J
She is a thief
senna park
Omg people need to stop defending her. A lot of you are saying it was the judges and not her and feel bad for her but she was so disrespectful to Yuna on interviews.
kassie jane
late to the game. this is probably one of the worst olympic performances i've personally seen. medvedeva is my favorite alltime skater, so I definitely don't have any bias against russia, but this was so heavy, so boring, so dull. yuna for sure should have taken that gold. this doesn't even deserve top 3, nevermind gold. it picked up a little towards the end of the program but was still heavy and sloppy. it's surprising that there's anyone out there who doesn't see this scoring fraud.
abby orpilla
The gold should've been Yuna's not yours.
And now Russia is banned from the winter olympics, for what they did in Sochi
Wyatt Choi
Sotnikova. Please. Return your gold Medal to yuna. Clearly It's not your's. The world knows. All universe knows.
Callie Yoo
I strongly think that they chose a wrong person for the gold medal.
Jenny Bunny Lucky
Gold medal Thief... R u happy?
Ncw Wong
I've never seen a video of a gold-winning medalist which has views 2m fewer than the silver-winning medalist
avacado !
Okay. Good technically, but boring and dull. She is a horrid performer. Not deserving of gold, that's for sure. Like magic.
David Baek
Yuna is best
4 years later, I still feel angry. It is widely known that she was the gold medal thief. The gold medalist in our mind is Kim Yuna.
katie Lee
Shes not bad. But she didnt deserve to win first out of all the other performers, and definetely not with that score. It was way too close to kim yunas 2010 performance, and that was a legendary performance. This wasnt even close
i don't like her because she criticized yuna and walked out on yuna and kostner and all the reporters/ cameras during the medalist interview. she has no common sense and no manner.
Veronika Kršková
She is cheater
Elizabeth Diana
Shame on u Russia for stealing South Korea's gold medal. You have caught red handed. Feeling nothing but angry to watch this lady skate.Olympics should have taken this video down. ❤ Yuna Kim won the gold medal in Sochi 2014.❤
rsp j
She was so oversocored!!!! worst worst worst worst worst olympic figure skating history
Angus Delaney
Sotnikova who? Is this girl even relevant anymore? A robber and trash till the end.
Igor de Sá
yuna was a lot better !!!
Andy Son
Shame on you. I don't feel anything from her.
Jinjoo Hwang
She should have got bronze she is a great skater but doesn't deserve gold....Yuna was better. Yuna-gold/Italy- silver/ Russia-bronze..
Twin NY
She sKates soooo BORING!!!!
Absolutely disgraceful. This performance leaves me stone cold - it should have won bronze at best. I only hope that someday Kim Yuna receives the gold medal we all know she deserves.
some one
That awkward moment when the silver is better than the gold.
this is very good, but it is not a gold medal performance.
Míša Vu
Funny how everybody discovers the true face of russia 😂
Danny Boy
Most of people don't remember who got the gold in Socchi. Adelina is only popular in Russia. Outside of Russia "who are you?"

After four years I'm still baffled at her scores. Really inflated GOEs and blatantly wrong-edged/underrotated jumps not even called by the technical panel. Plus she had one of the most forgettable choreografies ever: seriously, is waving to the judges and pulling an imaginary rope worth 9.50 in C/C (the highest score vs Kostner's 9.21 and Asada's 8.79)? Not only did the judges steal Kim and Kostner of the medals they deserved, but also put an end to this girl's senior career. Such a sad page in figure skating history
I hope she knows she didn't deserve it
Albra Kaska
How could this beat the Legend? Total nonsense.
Solar Seguro
And now Russia is banned from 2018 games. Now, I'm not implying that her win was due to doping and judge collusion,.but...... Well, let's just say she was VERY lucky to have won when she did.
Danny Wheeler
What does she do now? Has she retired or not? I truly hope she did. What a shame.
Caroline Melton
i know absolutely nothing about figure skating, so i don't understand how the scoring works, but i was really shocked to find out that this routine beat yuna kim's. yuna is so graceful; it almost looked like she was floating and she was so emotionally connected to her routine. this one seems flat, and while there weren't any big errors, this routine wasn't really anything special, in my opinion.
She only won because it was held in Russia.Skating is more than jumps. She needs a new choreographer.
Winderz Flow
Even though i'm not a skater, personally i think that her move is not that graceful... and i feel empty watching her (not moved). So kinda confused that she win after i watched the other ones that performed better.
Russia is always like that in all Olympics~! lol. it’s not surprising. shame on you Russia. You corrupt all the sports with your disgusting judges
her performance was great, but it lacked emotions and the 'magic', like yuna kim had in hers. she also made a mistake by landing on both feet. i don't see why she won the gold medal. its been 3 years but i still feel that yuna kim should have retired with two olympic gold medals
Putri Lestari
Kim yuna deserve gold
Nadia Dima
Very technical, no artistry whatsoever. I don't feel confident to judge whether or not she deserved the medal, but this was so insanely boring and lacking emotion.
Mix Rason
Her skating makes me cringe... shameon you! Adelina
Ally Reilly
This whole program was a mess. The costume even started to unravel at the end. It's a mess of jumps and spins. She deserved bronze
Gold medal thief
What a gold medal thief.
i Poong
Russia must be ashamed. They have defiled the sanctity of the Olympics.
Mei Liu
I really don’t think that sotnikova and yuna were on the same level in the component score. ISU definitely inflated sotnikova’s component score. i mean you can obviously tell
Kathy heo
just she's not worth medal
Yun Ha Seo
Poor girl. Because of the judges' bias, she's now known as the thief worldwide. I believe Yuna did much better, but I also don't think she should be getting so much hate for something she had no control over (unless she did).
진짜 악플달기 싫은데ㅋㅋ 소치만 생각하면 빡쳐서 야 누가 피겨를 그렇게 우악스럽게 하냐ㅋㅋ 덤프트럭이 더 아름답겠다;;
Qatar and Emirates Etihad and
Adelina ROBBER 1. Horrible Flutz 2. Full-Blade used on Toe-Loop 3. Absolutely more than 1/4 pre-rotation on Flip 4. 2-foot landing on 2T and 2 Lo combination YUNA KIM Unbelievably perfect and clean performance(no doubt)
Winstone Lew
Flutz, Under-rotation, Two-foot landing, Choreography just like an insane girl moving arms and legs meaninglessly. Disgrace of corrupt ISU. Alexander Lakernik must be removed from ISU forever!
Thanh Truong
Let's just all agree that Russia should never host another Olympics. Ever.
Jimmy John's
I wanna say f off to Sotnikova. Everytime I think of Sochi Winter Olympics video i burst into tears. I totally can’t agree with the result. I know that nothing changes eventhough i critisize their decision, but i just wanted to say that yuna was the best figure skater and is still the queen. Nobody can exceed her skills and performance. U r the best Yuna Kim.
José Antonio Gutiérrez López
The Russians gave her the gold medal because she was skating in his country.
Grace Park
There was no emotion in this performance. It just felt like she was trying to show off. She kept making fists which looked more aggressive than delicate. Honestly surprised she won gold after she almost fell. Shes an amazing skater and i was super impressed by this vid but kim yuna should have won. Yuna had passion and heart from beginning to end which is something i struggle to see here.
What the..
j. j.
Sotnikova stealed yuna's gold medal. Queen yuna is a gold medalist at Sochi Olympic Games.
Jenny Whitman
absolutely wrong, dirty, insulting result to itself, not deserving the gold medal
Shame on you. How dare you tk the gold medal? I admit that your performance was not bad and its fine but i cant believe this performance can win yuna’s . Yuna’s performance was clean and there was no mistake. But Your double Lo landing was absolutely wrong,
Shame on you Sotnikova!!😞 Queen Yuma you r real gold medalist🥇⛸
robbed the gold The real champion is Queen Yuna
Laura Lee
I see how the Russian Figure skating committee is trying to defend her and their rigged decision by not competing in the Pyeongchang Olympics. They know they'll be busted big time.
Putin, ISU paid off to the judges.
Rachel Rachel
No grace poor performance no shame
네 다음 형광나방ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 러시아인들은 부끄러운 줄 알아야지 쉴드 존ㄴ나 쳐대네;
2 years later and I'm still salty over the fact that Yuna Kim was robbed. So many technical errors. How did she win first
rsp j
Even though Sotnikova landed on her two feet and used wrong tehinque in spins, she got gold. However, Yuna got silver. It was obvious wrong judgement, and therefore Sotnikova is still being criticised. Someday, I hope the gold medal will back to its true owner, Yuna.
Alyanna Publico
Shame on all the people involved in this. How do you sleep at night? How is this is technically superior than Yuna Kim's? Look at Sotnikova's pre-rotations, wrong take-off edges, underrotations, etc and then look at Yuna's nearly perfect jumps. Compare the GOEs. Not to mention Yuna Kim's exemplary artistry. I'm sorry if this is being mean but Sotnikova's gold is truly one of the biggest jokes of the decade.
Aljerica Acuisa
Great homecooking
lili elize
Broken edge, broken landing, broken performance, broken gold. And dopping scandal? Wow adelina is just destroyer like her ugly skating marks. Putin's proud. Can't be chill 😂
RJ Gentapanan
this skater will forever be known as the skater who didn't deserve to win. Yuna Kim was robbed.
Jake Abayari
she not deserve the gold she deserved the rank 10.
lily yoon
worst thing ever!!!!!!!!!!
