Miller/Moram - short pgm / he fell on sbs 3toes and they skated through at least a lift / bods is very nice and they end with a good combo spins / didn’t really see the pgm as I was responding to email.
Putnam/Wirtz - light yellow with red (same as last year) Sing, sing, sing / I’m glad they kept this pgm because it’s a very good one and they never really skated it as well as they could in competition last year / sbs 3sal were perfect / lift also was good - covered lots of ice (she doesn’t change pos though) thr 3s is good / they didn’t do the whole pgm / into the spirals now - very nice seq / combo spin is ok - starts out backwards but they almost change pos too often and it seemed a little sloppy /
Inoue / Bladwin - short pgm / sbs 2a takeoffs a little out of sync and bit far apart but clean / thr 3a she fell / lift is good - good speed / death spiral with change of hand /
Random notes after run-throughs / M&M great sbs spins perfect sync & close together / I&B another fall on 3a / P&W a number of very spinny twists - she still doesn’t get enough height on them / M&M tried at least one unsuccessful sbs 3t - so far haven’t seen clean ones from them / I&B going for 3a again - just did a double and she stepped out - nice thr 3l though / P&W - even the 2tw they just did was crashy on the landing / very nice sbs spins by I&B /
Moyle / Seitz - both in black with white & silver trim / dramatic piano to open (Greig concerto) sbs jumps were good but I missed the takeoff - not sure what they were / thr 3l step out - lean in air, they did a gorgeous one in warm-up / sorry missed a bit there - was watching the Swedish girl attempt 3s and she just had the best one I’ve seen from her - fully rotated with a step out / M&S - combo spin to end is good
Zhang/Zhang - dark red with black / Spanish guitar / huge 2tw he puts his hands to his side when she’s in the air / taking a break / huge thr 3 sal by the Swedes but she fell / great thr 3l by M&S / now the Zhangs are in the pgm again - thr 3l is doubled but the Swedes just landed a very nice thr 3s / M&S have a quite nice 2tw / Z&Z throw 3l then sbs 2s / and a fall by the Swedes but don’t know what the throw was /
Pylkina/ Hogner - start pgm with spiral he has better extension than her / walked through lift or tw / sbs 3s clean!!!!!!!! - 1st one I’ve seen from her / taking a break now / and Z&Z did sbs 3s / she lost it on the bods /
