    The Top 10 are all going to be so close after this phase, assuming Chait/Sak place there and they should. It will be VERY competitive for medals.

    Frau, I knew it would be close...in an early posting, I was trying to convince myself that despite Belbin and Agosto being in 4th (at the time) it wasn't really that bad since only like .29 seperated 2-4....so the fact that only what, 2 points seperates 2-6, makes me feel better....

    Hope these teams know they CAN NOT afford to give even .01 a point away....
    I think I'm in denial abou the Italians and need to see it for my own eyes. I just CAN NOT beleive that they would have improved THAT much.....

    Frau - maybe if you leave for another hour, the time warp you put us in will work itself out and when you return, we'll all relize its just a bad dream....

    Chait/Sak in 13th...man. After the last olympics and this whole shebang with her daddy paying folks off etc, they really have never been held up like they use to. Glad to see that has changed.

    Chait/Sakhnovsky into 13th place!!!!!!!???????? Did they fall? Did they cha-cha to a waltz beat?

    Boris is going to knock a few heads tonight...run for cover!

    Hopefully, Italian Security Forces are up to it.


    The #1 Israelis are actually behind the Kerrs (!!!) and Wing/Lowe & the #2 Israeli team is in dead-last place. Hmmm.....

    from Eurosport...

    Heartbreak for the Israeli pair of Chait and Sakhnovski! She catches her toe peg in the ice and tumbles to the ground! He does extremely well to hold on and ressurrect their dance, but the damage has been done. Oh yes, she's in dark blue with a sequinned neck. AND THEY ARE HAMMERED BY THE JUDGES: 14.80 and 17.27 gives them 31.07 and only 13th place.

    Sigh. . . I thought that the new scoring system had at the very least improved the likelihood of deserving skaters in ice dancing actually having a shot of medaling rather than having to wait years for recognition. Seems like the ISU and the judges made a fool out of me. I'm going to wait until I can see the competition to make any judgments, but I getting this feeling in my gut that Tanith & Ben would be really lucky to squeak out a bronze with this judging panel.

    These scores seem ridiculous.

    What the **** happened to Galit and Sergei???!!! They may not be the strongest complulsory dancers out there, but they are not worse than all those other teams. They MUST have fallen or made some other mistake... A real bummer...

    I wouldn't get too upset about B&A's 7th. The difference between 3d and 7th place is less than 1/3 of a point - a tie for all intents and purposes. Even the difference between them and the first place is under 1.5 points - no big deal!

    Okay, with the last 2 teams to skate, we can safely say that 1-8 is set...

    1. ITL Fusar Poli / Margaglio 19.10 19.68 0.00 38.78
    2 RUS Navka / Kostomarov 18.52 19.68 0.00 38.20
    3 BUL Denkova / Staviski 18.60 19.05 0.00 37.65
    4 CAN Dubreuil / Lauzon 18.72 18.72 0.00 37.44
    5 UKR Grushina / Goncharov 18.12 19.27 0.00 37.39
    6 USA Belbin / Agosto 18.29 19.07 0.00 37.36
    7 FRA Delobel / Schoenfelder 17.82 18.62 0.00 36.44
    8 LTU Drobiazko / Vanagas 17.13 18.10 0.00 35.23

    Going into this, most thought that Navka/Kostomarov would win gold and the race would be for silver and bronze. I, and I think others, thought it would be between Belbin/Agosto, Denkova/Straviski, Grushina/Goncharov and Drobiazko/Vanagas.

    I DID NOT think that the Canadian pair or the French pair would play into it...and I CERTAINLY did not think the Italian pair would either.

    It's just sooooo close. The OD and FD will be wild.....

    I am really getting annoyed with people accusing federation, coaches and skaters of paying off judges. Do you have any substantial evidence to back up your accusations??? I would love to see some evidence from Slutskaya21 as well. I think she managed to drag Evan's name through mud on every thread.

    Also, it is in really poor taste to express your pleasure at somebody's low placement. For the record, C&S never have been strong in compulsories, they gain points in OD and FD. Additionally, I never felt they were held up with an exeption of their bronze medal at 2002 Worlds. And even still, you could argue it was the team of D&V that was delibiratly being held down as opposed to C&S being held down.

    I suspect things will change quiet a bit after OD and CD.

    Shocked beyod belief that the Italians are first, and in compulsories, no less! It really does help to skate at home, what can I say!!

    Looks like it's a fall. At least it wasn't flagrant nastiness on the judges part.

    It also helps to have Speedy on your side.

    I can't wait for tonight's telecast to judge for myself. This is a doozy of a competition.
