two foot landing champion?
Adelina is good but Kim Yuna was definitely better. It still breaks my heart that she was robbed of the gold medal.
Still salty about this in 2018

Gold medal Thief... R u happy?

Shame on you. I don't feel anything from her.
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 only Gold throughout her entire career.

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.
International Skating Union?? Oh sorry I guess you said RUSSIAN Skating Union
진짜 악플달기 싫은데ㅋㅋ 소치만 생각하면 빡쳐서 야 누가 피겨를 그렇게 우악스럽게 하냐ㅋㅋ 덤프트럭이 더 아름답겠다;;

yuna was a lot better !!!

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.
Tracy Ly
It’s amazing there are more dislikes than likes 😂 YUNA WAS ROBBED I SAY ROBBED

I’m Russian and even I understand that Adelina didn’t deserve this gold medal! And still my heart is full of pain because of Yuna Kim, she was definitely robbed. I was so angry because of that! Everybody understand it and Yuna will be a champion for everybody, not Adelina. Russians didn’t want this win, majority of Russians dont like Adelina.

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.

I've never seen a video of a gold-winning medalist which has views 2m fewer than the silver-winning medalist

Yuna is best

Terrible fake olympic champion.
She is so stiff
Hwa bak
Omg😱 look at this~two foot landing, wrong edge. . .real champion?????? BAD😳😨😱😡🤬
3:17 that's goldlist two foot randing
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.
Maria Cantu
Her step sequence was so sloppy I'm cringing
Is this gold medal!!!!!????? Still i can't understand.
Brandford James
Yuna Kim was much better.
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.
Czarina Ysabel Pacaldo
Her performance was a disaster compared to Yuna's which was flawless. So disappointing.
this is very good, but it is not a gold medal performance.
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 hope she knows she didn't deserve it
avacado !
Okay. Good technically, but boring and dull. She is a horrid performer. Not deserving of gold, that's for sure. Like magic.
Shoko Truth
Look at that camera angle of adelina's opening jump!!!! They knew she was going to flutz so they attempted to conceal it with that sideway angle!!! So dirty.
rsp j
overscore....Originally, Sotnikova didn't deserve to be olymoic champion. Look at her scores before and after sochi olympics!!
Ga-Young Kim
사년 만에 봤다. 러시아 소치 올림픽의 격을 보여주는 경기같다. 메달만 따면 그만이라는 경이로운 천박함.
차라리 동메달을 뺏든가 좀 그럴듯한걸로 사기를 쳐야지ㅉ
Angus Delaney
Sotnikova who? Is this girl even relevant anymore? A robber and trash till the end.
Lyra A
Honestly, Kim Yuna has so much grace and elegance as well as emotion in her skating compared to Adelina. Yes, Adelina was good, but there's just a huge difference between the 'good skater' Adelina is and the 'fantastic skater' Yuna is. I defiently think Kim Yuna deserved that Gold medal more than Adelina did. It's a bit unfair, but oh well Adelina was good, I guess.
GOLD MEDALIST of Two-Foot-Landing!
nsjsns jdjdd
1. 3luz e + 3T underrotated 2. 3F prerotation 3. 3F prerotation + 2T+2L 2Foot landing 4. Stsq4??? I can see this in slow camera. Judges lie denfintely. RIP ISU
So sad about sotnikova. She will be remembered as the skater who took away the gold medal from the real winner.

Wrong Edge Queen🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

3lz > wrong edge. prerotation. poor take off. first 3t > prerotation. and under ~ downgrade. poor take off second 3t > prerotation. poor take off two 3f > prerotation. poor take off 7 triple? you have only 2 triple.
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..
Awesome sports
소름돋는건 얘 두 발 착지 안했으면 세계신기록 경신임 ㅆㅂ ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
Diana Torres
i still dont know why she wasnt deducted for that almost-fall and not clean landing jump
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.
Mix Rason
Her skating makes me cringe... shameon you! Adelina
Ta Vi
Kim was robbed 😭
1:14 this is first jump and fuked up. great jump???? freak jump.

Adelina Sotnikova is the only olympic champion who has NEVER WON the top three at the World Championships and Grand Prix Finale.
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.
Naz Salahova
Yuna Kim in Vancouver 2010 scored 150.06 in long program. Sotnikova scored 149.95 in Sochi long program, which is very close. One just has to be blind not to recognize that Sotnikova’s score was fixed with all the wrong edges and doubles foot landing etc etc.

The worst olympic champion in figure skating history. Adelina Sotnikova didn't judge. It was not her fault. BUT she was shameless in her interview after Sochi.

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.
Yvan Svajlen
triple flutz + 3T from full blade - underrotated, edge call on both, Axel toe - edge call, inconsistent triple loop, underrotated 2A + 3T from full blade, Axel toe ("flip") edge call, double-footed loop, 2A ok.... Adelina, give the gold medal to Yuna Kim, that would be the cleverest of u.
Mode sun
that's unfair. she landing with two foots. what a fool. real gold is Queen YUNA.

Fvcking Russian judges
i Poong
Russia must be ashamed. They have defiled the sanctity of the Olympics.
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.
Julianne Aniceto
how to be “an olympic champion” 1.) have an inside edge lutz! 2.) full blade toe loop! 3.) pre-rotated flip! 4.) TWO footed landing after a triple flip double toe double loop combo! 5.) a level 2 step sequence and having it mislabeled as a level 4! 6.) completely disappear from the skating world after “winning” at the olympics! 7.) don’t forget waving at the judges to ensure your gold medal! ;) adelina is a good skater but def not an olympic champion. still ashamed her gold medal wasn’t taken away from her and given to the REAL TWO-time olympic champion kim yuna!
몇년이 지나도 어이없는 영상이다..와..얼마나 낮짝이 두꺼우면 대놓고 저럴까...와 박수쳐드리고 싶네 얼굴에..찹찹찹...
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.
Andrew Humphrey
Four years later, still a mess that she won with this.
Lol like and dislike ratio??? We all know kim yuna won the gold😂😂
Jenny Whitman
absolutely wrong, dirty, insulting result to itself, not deserving the gold medal
hvigf jv
Putin, ISU paid off to the judges.
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.
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.❤
Olympics, live up to your name. Sotnikova was, is, and never will be the champion of this 2014 figure skating competition.
Michelle Foucault
I feel bad for her because it seems that the Russian government used her as a pawn to demonstrate the extent of their power. Despicable really!!!
*Wrong edge Lutz, Full-blade Toe loop, Step-out Loop, Prerotated Flip, Unclear edge step sequence, Heavy transition. It's her total package.*
This was actually a bronze medal performance but the ISU inflated her scores....
2014 sochi olympic champion = yuna kim~~~!!!!! / sotnikova= no.4~ no.5~~ ㅗ

Yuna's views reached 7M and this Gold medal girl only has 2M views?
Tracy Ly
This is my face from watching her performance 😕 This is my face from watching Yuna 😁😁😁😁
“little bit of a dance at the finish” girl that was a two footed landing and you know it
Benjamin Cao
Her step sequence was disturbing
Rada Spoto
Same story between Irina Slutskaya and Sara Hues, we never seen Sara after then...

FLUTZ....Yuna shouldve won
It's been 4 years... I am still extremely mad about the result. I deny accepting that she won the gold medal instead of Yuna Kim. Sotnikova is a disgrace to the world and to her country. What a shame. She is not welcomed and she should never skate ever again.
RJ Gentapanan
this skater will forever be known as the skater who didn't deserve to win. Yuna Kim was robbed.
lily m
worst thing ever!!!!!!!!!!
Her costume makes her look like she is dressed as a thief who is breaking into an Olympic figure skating competition to steal some gold...
You don’t even need eyes to see that flutz and the insane prerotation on almost every jump
Pomare Kaire
Was she waving to that Russian judge? 4:28
Neha Chopra
3:19 "Little bit of a dance at the finish". What? Wh-WHAT?
child's play.... is this some kind of a circus?
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.
Tim Lin
queen of step-outs and pre-rotations
Jew Lerum
2018 and I’m still salty about this commoner stealing Queen Yuna’s Gold.. Smh But where is Sotnikova now? She hasn’t proven anything after that robbery while Yuna Kim is up there skating that high in the heavens and lighting the Olympic Cauldron. 👸🏻
Sotnikova is a great skater and put up a really good performance here, but I remember being really surprised at her 149.95. I admit I don't watch skating often (only the Olympics) and am a little fuzzy on how they come up with scores, but I do remember Yuna getting her 150 for gold in Vancouver and from a layperson's perspective I didn't feel that this performance from Sotnikova came so close to matching that one.

Shame on you, sotnikova and russia
