    Some very short impressions from the competition

    Compulsory and original dance: Denkova & Staviyski were in a class of their own... About having Austrian Waltz for compulsory dance, I found the programmes mostly boring.
    Some dancers are rather slow. Domnina &Shablin did not place so well in compulsory, but were very good in original dance. The Finnish pair surprised being on the final group for orginal dance. Unfortunately they dropped a bit.

    Pairs / sp:

    I liked Hinzmann & Parchem a lot and loved their beautiful music which they expressed wonderfully. Wakamatsu and Facteau were interesting. Some pairs did not succeed in interpreting the music.

    Men sp:

    Weir
    Just one word: FANTASTIC!!!

    Some skaters were expressive and lacking in their jumping, some jumped a bit better but were lacking in expression. I noticed that Smalun has watched some Ilia Kulik´s pro tapes... He is a very artistic skater, but would need a more consistent jumping.

    P.S. A bit fluff: we happened to see Maxim buying a Coca-Cola and a slize of pizza and noticed that off-ice he wears glasses.

    Thank Marjaana - I am so happy to see that Johnny is getting it back together. I hope he holds up at US Nat.

    I do wish Ilia Klimkin skated - win or lose - he is so unique for the male skater. Hope he does well at Russian Nats.

    Nice to see the US is beginning to show up in Pairs.

    No surprise with Denkova and Stavirsky. They are the dance team for gold this Worlds.

    Of course, hoping for a good show by Angela. Keep us posted and thanks again.

    Joe

    I´m sorry that I was not able to tell more about the first day. LOL, the truth is that I wrote more but did not manage to read my own handwriting (it was very difficult to make notes there) which even under the best circumstances is rather unreadable.
