    Pairs LP

    Marcoux/Buntin, L'Amour

    3T+2T
    2Tw, ok, but low
    SpSt
    2A
    PCoSp
    5ALi
    Th3R
    5SLi
    Th3S, wobble on landing
    FCCoSp, loss of unison, but rather minor
    4Li
    SlSt
    BoDs

    I found this program rather boring, they did athe elements, but i just isn't truly competitive with the restof the field here.

    Petrova/Tikhonov, Moonlight Sonata

    3Tw, ok
    3T, he doubles
    2A+2A he turnout from the first landing
    Th3R
    5ALi
    5SLi
    FiDs
    Th3S, I really want to see protocol here, because I think she *landed* it and then got a blade caught and fell, it would be itneresting to see what the callers said
    did not complete the 3Li
    StSp, slowly
    FCCoSp, she was "hopping" all the way through the first position and travelled badly on the other ones
    SlSt, ok
    and she slipped on doing nothing and fell
    PCoSp

    Ironically, I loved this performance more than I loved the two previous ones... I am finally able to see the glimpses of the program behind all those elements.

    Savchenko/Szolkowy, The Mission

    Th3F, high
    3T+3T, I think clean
    3Tw, high
    5TLi, very slow carry
    SpSt
    5ALi
    Th3S
    2A she singled and two footed hers
    FCCoSp, out of unison
    SlSt
    3Li laboured
    BoDs, change of hold, change of position, exit to dance lift
    PCoSp

    Well done after bad SP, but she was cautious and they did not really attack it.

    Inoue/Baldwin, Puccini Medley

    3T, he doubles
    2Tw, very low
    BoDs, change of hold
    3Li 1 hand up
    CCoSp, out of unison
    5SLi
    PCoSp
    Th3A, step out, but at least she did not fall
    SpSt, slow
    Th3r... something werid happened on take off, looked like he "forgot" to throw her and she did not really leave the ice
    2A+2T
    SlSt
    5ALi

    Rather empty, but they did most of their elements. They don't really belong to the top of world Pairs, but they did their job (well, mostly) and should be proud of it.

    Zhang/Zhang, Offsprings of Dragon

    3Tw, huge
    3T she fell her went on to complete the second one
    Th3S, huge
    5TLi, very slow carry
    PCoSp
    BoDs, she slipped from the edge on entry and it did not happen
    Th3R
    3S
    SpSt, hooray they finally learned to raise their leg to the same height
    5ALi
    CiSt, ok
    FCCoSp, very far away and way out of unison
    3Li

    She was very slow in the second half, like she is struggling to just go on.

    Shen/Zhao, Meditation

    3T2T
    2A
    3Tw, high
    5ALi
    FoDs, change of hold
    FCCoSp
    3Li
    SlSt, nice interaction
    Th3R
    Th3S
    SpSt, slow, but directly to
    PCoSp
    5SLi

    Once again just perfect. Even the best of the runners up, like Savchenko&Szolkowy have years ahead of them to learn this kind of unison...

    Thanks so much for the report. It's too bad that Pet/Tik and I/B didn't medal - this was one venue for them to possibly be on the podium. I really like Pet/Tik's moonlight sonata, it is lovely.

    So glad to hear that S/Z skated well, it makes me really, really happy!!! Congrats to them!

    S/S have so much potential - I love their line, positions and choreography - I hope they continue to grow and develop.
