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
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.
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.
*Wrong edge Lutz, Full-blade Toe loop, Step-out Loop, Prerotated Flip, Unclear edge step sequence, Heavy transition. It's her total package.*

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
"a little bit of a dance at the finish" ??? what a big fking joke. I THINK U MEANT SHE TRIPPED AND ALMOST FELL.
Adelina is good but Kim Yuna was definitely better. It still breaks my heart that she was robbed of the gold medal.

two foot landing champion?
차라리 동메달을 뺏든가 좀 그럴듯한걸로 사기를 쳐야지ㅉ

3:19 "Little bit of a dance at the finish". What? Wh-WHAT?

The world knows that Yuna Kim is the best!
Still salty about this in 2018
Danny Wheeler
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.
She is so stiff
Mailen Ramirez
The real champion is Queen Yuna

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.
What a shame. She will never be the star but the robber.
abby orpilla
The gold should've been Yuna's not yours.
itsa tay
4 years later and I still dislike this performance with every bone in my body
Faith Productions
She shouldn't have been silver. She should have been bronze. Still pissed that both Yuna and Kostner were robbed of their well deserved medals.
Flora Ho
legendary comedian
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.
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.
she must be the WORST olympic champion. what a shame RUSSIA!!
Míša Vu
Funny how everybody discovers the true face of russia 😂
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.
cool J
She is a thief
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.
david lee
Her body is very heavy and dull compared to Yuna Kim.. but she has home advantage. Ha Ha.. she is absolutely 2nd...
Igor de Sá
yuna was a lot better !!!
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
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..
Andy shabadoo
She didn't deserve that gold. I wonder how she feels knowing that majority of the skating world think her gold is tainted.
avacado !
Okay. Good technically, but boring and dull. She is a horrid performer. Not deserving of gold, that's for sure. Like magic.
Ncw Wong
I've never seen a video of a gold-winning medalist which has views 2m fewer than the silver-winning medalist
Andy Son
Shame on you. I don't feel anything from her.
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.❤
And now Russia is banned from the winter olympics, for what they did in Sochi
Angus Delaney
Sotnikova who? Is this girl even relevant anymore? A robber and trash till the end.
I hope she knows she didn't deserve it
Veronika Kršková
She is cheater
Jenny Bunny Lucky
Gold medal Thief... R u happy?
this is very good, but it is not a gold medal performance.
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?"
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.
rsp j
She was so oversocored!!!! worst worst worst worst worst olympic figure skating history
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.
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.
Twin NY
She sKates soooo BORING!!!!
some one
That awkward moment when the silver is better than the gold.
Paul Vega
Gold medal thief
Albra Kaska
How could this beat the Legend? Total nonsense.
David Baek
Yuna is best

I find it that Sotnikova is indeed very talented for a 17 year old skater but when I watch her performance, I feel absolutely nothing. She has speed and jumps but what Kim Yuna has is the ability to move the audience and Kim is more graceful. Kim makes figure skating an art that makes everyone in awe, she is the queen for a reason. Sotnikova has high jumps but they aren't graceful and the mc said that her performance did not have the magic and her performance was unplanned. Personally, I think the judges should have made Kim the winner, not based on how many jumps there are or the moves but on the flow and gracefulness which is what Kin brings to figure skating. Kim also did not make any mistakes and look a 3:16 , Sotnikova made one. A gold can't be earned when you have a flaw.
She only won because it was held in Russia.Skating is more than jumps. She needs a new choreographer.
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.
What a gold medal thief.
Putri Lestari
Kim yuna deserve gold
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.
Tmll Prn
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
Mix Rason
Her skating makes me cringe... shameon you! Adelina
2014 European championships: 131.63 2014 Olympics:149.95??? And she performed better in the euro2014 lmao
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
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
Danny Wheeler
What does she do now? Has she retired or not? I truly hope she did. What a shame.
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.

Rachel Rachel
No grace poor performance no shame
"A little bit of dance at the end" oh my god English commentators are so annoying. the Italian commentators are much better they actually say what they feel
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).
Kathy heo
just she's not worth medal
Solar Seguro
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
i Poong
Russia must be ashamed. They have defiled the sanctity of the Olympics.
Cara Nadya
I think Adelina is an amazing skater. Her technical skills are up on the wow factor. But besides the skill and the athleticism I felt nothing from this performance. Adelina put on some facial expressions, but they were empty. I don't know how to explain it. Her technical skills were amazing aside from her mistake, her facial expressions were great but they made me feel nothing. The music was lovely but her performance was nowhere near soulful in my opinion. But when I watched Yuna's performance, I was spellbound. It felt magical, it moved me. Even my expression was changed watching it, it's like she was telling a story and I was in it-- I was feeling what was going on inside the story. Overall, Adelina is a wonderful skater, but this performance lacked soul, and I really think that Yuna deserved the gold :) This is just my opinion, I'm not calling Adelina a bad skater. I think she's amazing, but I also think Yuna deserved the gold rather than Adelina.
Let's just all agree that Russia should never host another Olympics. Ever.
Shame on you Sotnikova!!😞 Queen Yuma you r real gold medalist🥇⛸
Thanh Truong
What the..
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.
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!
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.
네 다음 형광나방ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 러시아인들은 부끄러운 줄 알아야지 쉴드 존ㄴ나 쳐대네;
jack riot
I am from Russia and I think Yuna is the one who really deserved gold
진짜 악플달기 싫은데ㅋㅋ 소치만 생각하면 빡쳐서 야 누가 피겨를 그렇게 우악스럽게 하냐ㅋㅋ 덤프트럭이 더 아름답겠다;;
she's so good, she really is. but this wasn't even close to her best performance, this wasn't a gold medal program.
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.
filthy medal. it’s a shame for the skater too. she did well compared to her previous shows, so she wouldn’t have got all the hate from all around the world if her country didn’t meddle with the scores. look how she can’t bear the pressure and recover since 4 years ago. sochi not only insulted other country’s skaters but also their own country’s skater as well. russia should be sorry to adelina as well. the thing is, adelina goes around interviewing as if she really deserves the gold. that’s the reason for all the mean comments towards her.
JY Jang
Sotnikova had a great talent but what happend in Sochi ruined her future career. How could she hug two judges? I couldn't understand Yu-na getting score 0 and Sotnikova getting full score from 2 anonymous judges.
Aljerica Acuisa
Great homecooking
She is a great jumper but not so good artistically; she tried but it's just not there. And the ending with the waves and trying to amp up the crowd moves is cringe worthy.
José Antonio Gutiérrez López
The Russians gave her the gold medal because she was skating in his country.
robbed the gold The real champion is Queen Yuna
