Well, that easily was the best thing we've seen so far!! Everything landed cleanly except the silly fall from him.
Their throw sal is literally in the last 3 sec of their program. Wow!
Solid, except for a fall from Robin.
I think we just witnessed the LP of the 2-time World Champions. Congrats Aliona & Robin!
Scott: "They remind me of Salle/Pelletier" Speking of S/S.
Yeah, Scott, we are very well aware what's your standard is.
Ahh, finally they land everything and he falls on footwork?
I could barely breath throughout Aliona and Robin's program. The level of difficulty is insane in their program. I'm so proud of them, even with Robin's bizarre fall. I can't believe Aliona landed that last throw!
Schindler’s List and Adagio
-throw 3Lz – good!
-footwork – Robin falls (!)
-3 twist – cool entry
-lift – very good
-throw 3S – shaky landing, but landed!
-Robin and Aliona should have this one in the bag….
Go, Yuko & Sasha!
1st place, and well deserved!
I think the big problem here is the program itself. I like the idea of playing on their character, but the choreography is just off. And the music seemed a bit slow. If they had used a faster version, maybe it would have been better. Plus, every one of her costumes for this program has just seemed odd.
The audience really was lukewarm in its applause.

Gosh, it really wasn't necessary for them to try that quad! Horrendous fall. Just cost themselves a medal.
Awww, poor Yuko . . . that was a HARD fall on the throw 4Salchow.
