    Re the question: Pairs Short Programs - Triple Axels, Difficult Lifts, What More Can You Ask For

    I'd like to see some fine figure skating as well - kind of like B&S did. Oh, I forgot this is acrobatic skating.

    Seems like Rena and John hit with their 3A throw.

    I/B into third. I hope they can move up in the LP. Not much separating them from S/S fourth place finishers. I really like I/B's style much better than Z/Z but tech-wise will probably keep Z/Z in 2nd place. I am sure S/Z will take gold.
