    Just to show you how crappy is the NBC Olympics site, their supposedly-"live" scores still show Fitze/Rex as not having yet skated...20 minutes after their skate. :chorus:

    All of my usual sources (CCTV-5, Croatian TV, Serbian TV, etc.) have been cleverly 'blocked' by NBC. Nasty - nasty.

    Sounds like Uzbeks are 'crashing & burning'...during Neapolitan dance of Swan Lake. "What a shame," says Nick.
    Hi Frau Miller. Not sure where you are "interneting" from, but I'm in the US and am getting CCTV-5 just fine. (lol maybe the NBC internet trolls are hunting me down as we speak!!)

    It's a toss up though - love the CCTV video feed, but also love the Eurosport audio.

    Enjoy!!

    Thanks, DG. I tried CCTV-5 several times. Maybe they started later on? Thanks for the hint. Usually I get them OK.

    I'll still post here, though.

    * CORRECTION - Eurosport comments by 'Chris & Simon' (not Nick).


    AHEAD OF AMERICANS, into 1st place (rataiing placement they had after SP). Commentators a bit surprised....

    Marcoux/Buntin - lovely 3 twist...very sharp...ah -- she didn't make 2-toe in combo jumps. "Well done" on throw 3 loop!

    slow section - a mistake by Craig on the 2-axels

    music accellerates - "fabulous spin...lots of energy to keep up with music...one more key element left...HOW RISKY - throw 3 loop at very end...big fall!"

    Chris: "Bizarre choreography."

    INTO 1st place (stay as they were) - "They're lucky there wasn't much going on earlier..."

    Zag/Siudek: "Disaster at start...not confident on 2-axels...good throw 3 loop....she just doubled it."

    "Lovely lift!"

    "GORGEOUS split 3-twist. Beautiful landing."

    "Throw 3-sal...just held on!"

    "Super!!! ending - huge applause. There seemed to be room for us to enjoy it. What a difference. The pace didn't drop. All credit to them - a sterling performance. She worked really hard on the throw landings but she stood up....only mistake at the start."


    Into first (as expected) but will they surpass any ahead of them? They could well me way up from 9th overall."

    Dube/Davison -

    split 2-twist - "bit awkward. SUPER s-b-s 2 axels!"

    "Wonderful speed for the lifts. Good throw 3-sal. A magnificent start for them."

    "Lovely line in change-of-edge spiral....3 salchows, good....at halfway pt - can they keep it going?"

    "Throw 3-loop...step sequence - they'll have to raise the level there.

    END - Well, terrific! The best of the 2 Canadians. They seemed to lose strength at end....Chris: They didn't interpret the music. Transitions weren't bad but chor'phy leaves a lot to be desired. Good performance,though."

    "They won't overtake the Poles. Big question - Will they overtake the #1 Canadians?"

    104.23 free skate - move to 2nd above Marcoux/Buntin.

    During warm-up of Gp4, Valerie Marcoux talks to Gwendal P.: Marcoux to Gwendal on that final fall in the risky throw at the end of the programme: Very difficult and we were unlucky, we wanted to put it in at the end of the program.

    Obertas/Slavnov will be first-up, with Verdi medley. Shen/Zhao, with their new 'Mme Butterfly,' will be next....then Germans, then Americans. Very, very close grouping. Chris: "Will Inoue/Baldwin try throw 3-axel again here?"

    Obertas/Slavnov - Traviata, etc. Starting -

    2 axels....he struggles. 3 toes...now she struggles! Slide on 3 twist...WOW. Couldn't quite hold on.

    Slow part - OK...

    Rigoletto music - "Hand down, I'm afraid..."

    End, Anvil Chorus: [nothing said]...."A spirited performance. Nothing was right with any of the throws....not a lot to be thrilled about." Chris - "They worked very hard but not there. Footwork very jagged." "There's a problem when they can't even acknowledge each othr's presence."


    Simon: "Oh no - those marks are difficult to comprehend! I don't agree with that at all. Poles down to 2nd. Bewilderment in the arena!!"

    SUPER 3 toe-2 toe!!! (she d-footed it...in replay)

    LOVELY throw 3 sal!

    Wonderful entry into death spiral....WOW!!!! throw (3 twist throw)...to very emotional beat of music!

    Almost losing it there....(what?) s-b-s 2 xels - he singled his.

    middle section - "His lack of training can be seen" "....but SUPER throw 3 loop!"

    3rd music - "WOW that is very difficult." (what?) ...slowing down a bit...very dramatic music...

    no applause - no talk for over one minute....

    EXPLOSION of 'bravos' at end. STANDING O. "Just great! Absolutely fantastic!" "EXTRAORDINARY! A formidable performance...well, they may not get a medal but great."

    Savchenko/Szolkowy - Vangelis, 1492, etc.

    throw 2 twist

    Very difficult sequence now...3 toe-3toe. Good.

    throw 3 flip - 2-footed....

    (change to march music - 1492) super 2 axels...

    Gt throw 3 salchow....big lean but she held on!

    ah...(seems to be a slip/error at end of this part of music)


    "WHAT A BEAUTIFUL PROGRAM," says Chris. Simon: "Hats off to Ingo Steuer...whatever others may think of him!" Ingo allowed to sit with them...although not part of the official delegation.

    Rena & John now practicing on ice as Germans await score....

    Scores: 2nd-best program. May be moving up but here are Americans.

    They didn't mention the aborted lift or the fact that they have the scariest lifts going? Really his feat are skittering around like a cartoon dog on the ice and he really looks like he's straining. Get that boy to the gym pronto.

    Interesting, Makfe!

    Inoue/Baldwin - Shostakovich medley

    good 3 toes. 2 twist.

    GOOD throw 3 loop!

    (music change)

    and here it comes....ohhhhhhh....NOT THIS TIME....(throw 3 ax)

    (music change)

    "They got it back but a bit late."

    Uplifting music but too many mistakes. Brave effort. We suspect this will be their last year..."they should be ahead of Obertas/Slavnov who had disaster...let's see..."

    60.27 tech (good)' 54.07 2nd mark - total 175.01. - yes, into 3rd, ahead of Obertas, behind Shen and Savchenko.

    Chris: Zagorska/Siudek are the only ones with reason to complain tonight (so far).

    1 Xue Shen, Hongbo Zhao (CHN) 62.32 124.59 186.91
    2 Aliona Savchenko, Robin Szolkowy (GER) 60.96 124.59 180.15
