    It says here that B&A had a stumble in their CD, which might explain their marks. I haven't seen B&A's OD and FD yet, and only some parts of Domnina and Shabalin's FD, their Tango is very strong. I think this competition will be decided in the Free Dance.

    Not surprised at all. It's time for Dom/Shab to be considered a serious run for the gold in Tokyo.

    The Americans only sent one team

    IMO it will be very difficult for the russians to take the gold at worlds but why not the bronze

    That explains why B/A are 2nd.

    YES THE ZARETSKIS ARE IN 4TH!!!!

    HOPEFULLY THEY CAN MOVE UP IN THIRD and GET THE BRONZE

    Hey I got a great idea to end this debate of BA vs BS give the Zaretskis the gold

    Dom/Shab-great another held up russian pair.....this is why the sport is going down in popularity, the results often appear to be fixed, and the Russians always win...

    please do not flame me

    Um, another poster mentioned that Belbin/Agosto had a stumble...and are in 2nd behind Domnina/Shabalin by less than a full tenth of a point. How the heck is that "Another held up Russian pair"?? Have you SEEN the event yourself, to see whether or not your assessment of this "fixed" sport is accurate? Or are you just yet another troll wanting to be allowed to "flame" other people and skaters, but then asking that you and your opinions not be addressed, respectfully, by people who disagree? I have seen Domnina/Shabalin live before, and they have very nice ice coverage, and are a good, smooth team that is just going to get better in time. Perhaps it is idiotic of me to suggest that you SEE the event before claiming that certain skaters are held up and the results are fixed.

    Oh, and by the way? I believe the current World dance champions are Bulgarian....not Russian....

    In SA, the Miss Zaretski wore a costume that looked like it was tailored by a Hassidic. (that 1930s/40s style. But in the OD and FD the costumes became more up-to-date.

    Mr. Zaretski makes awful grimaces while he dances. That's not JMO.

    The difference between the first and second place scores are very close...the stumble and Belbin's statement (not sure of the exact wording) about not being at their best make sense.
    Looks like Senft/Gislason and again going to be challenged throughout the season by Girard/Yaegar. I believe that S/G had an injury last season so, in spite of G/Y's strong performances, their placement ahead of S/G remained perhaps a little questionable. Personally, I have thoroughly enjoyed G/Y each time I have seen them, on tv and live and don't mind S/G but there seemed to be a push for S/G at the national level.

    AHA they stumbled and I guess that's what explains it well. I was fixing to say, that Belbin and Agosto are definately a better team than the Russians. We'll see only the free dance will tell what happens. I certainly hope that the Russians don't emerge the way that Navka and Kostomarov did in 2003 by going undefeated all season.

    If you mean that N/K went undefeated in 2003, they won bronze at Europeans and were fourth in DC after Bourne/Kraatz, Lobacheva/Averbukh, and Denkova/Staviyski. L/A won gold in Malmo and DenSta won silver. Grushina/Goncharov beat them at least once in the GP earlier in the season.

    It wasn't until the 2003-4 season that N/K went undefeated. (They lost the F/D to DenSta at SC, but won the competition by about 3 points.)
