    I found it interesting that despite all the controversy about CD's and whether they should be eliminated, they did manage to run a Finnstep CD competition. Maxwell and Traxler won it!

    Hooray for Summerset/Gilles winning the senior Cd over Crone/Poirier.

    Sylvia do you know which CD was CD1 and which CD2? I'm assuming it was Paso Doble and Viennese Waltz.

    Strictly speaking, each team won one CD,but S/G had the higher combined score.

    Yes, CD1 was the Paso Doble (won by C/P) and CD2 was the Viennese Waltz (won by S/G), according to this article by Alexandra Stevenson: http://web.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news

    Not really surprising when you consider there is no difference in the requirements in the junior and senior OD ( but huges differences in the CD and FD) . Doing senior OD won't affect the JGP preparations but it will give them exposure to competing against higher quality opposition which can only be a good thing.

    Here's the link to ice-dance.com's index of video blogs (skater interviews): http://www.viddler.com/explore/icedancecom/videos/

    The official results page has all results through today except for the last 2 events (Intermediate and Juvenile Free Dance): http://www.lakeplacidskating.com/new.../08results.php
    The "Junior Compulsory Championship Round" results link is currently wrong -- the correct link is:
    http://www.lakeplacidskating.com/new...s/jr_champ.php

    Ice-dance.com has a plethora of competition and practice photos (and is supplying Icenetwork with action shots): http://photography.ice-dance.com/2008LakePlacidIDC/

    Daily event summary articles and photo galleries are linked from Icenetwork's event page: http://web.icenetwork.com/events/detail.jsp?id=50528

    Piper Gilles/Zachary Donohue, a new dream team?

    "We've only been skating together for eight weeks, so we're delighted," said Donahue, who was a latecomer to the world of ice, taking up the sport when he was 10. He has only been in ice dancing for four years.

    C/P won CD1 (Paso), S/G won CD2 (Waltz), C/P won (Final round) CD3 (Waltz), and S/G won overall by .18 - 95.60 to C/P 95.42.

    They looked great but I can't say it was a real competition since they competed against the teams half their ages, they're juvenile and intermediate teams. I guess they were there to demonstrate the dance?.
