    Ladies' LP

    Princesses on the ice. But I don't watch warm-ups. Will do PBP though.

    Oops, missed the beginning of obscure European Lady No.1
    Gwendoline Didier
    I saw a
    clean Triple Toe - Double Toe
    a European (read bad) spiral sequence
    Triple Toe - fall out
    Double Axel - double Toe - Double Toe - laboured but clean
    Steps - bleh
    Couple of blah spins

    Warm-up shows clean Triple Lutz, and one definitely underrotated jump.
    French team is relatively tame, singing loud football songs together and jumping up and down with flags. Is Joubert wearing lifts or is he just that much taller than everyone else.

    Score: 75,77

    France was really hurt by the format. I'm sure they would have rather sent an extra dance team and left Gwendoline at home.

    He's 1.79 according to the ISU bio. Florent Amodio is supposed to be really short, but I imagine Yannick and Fabian should be around 1.80.

    Russian blond Carmen
    Double Axel - clean and high
    Triple Lutz - high, but 2-footed landing and stumbles
    Triple Flip - high, but bad fall
    Triple Toe - high - and saved the landing
    Camel spin - bad
    Triple Lutz - high, but fall and possible underrotation
    Double Axel - clean
    Spiral Sequence - her hands and arms are trying to tell us that this is indeed a program with music
    Triple Salchow - bad fall
    Layback spin - European, read - bad!
    Generic footwork 101, circular - oh, that's so carmen
    Combination spin - bad

    That's what I call a disaster. Two positive things: she is pretty to look at and her jumps have good height, she just can't land them. I like how they pick the landed jumps to show in the slowmo. Russians are so boring compared to the French. And Smirnov was wearing the same shirt to the Europeans SP press conference (sorry, photographic memory), Yuko's sweater looks like something I was wearing at 12.

    Score: 69.61 (Hah! Outskated by Gwendoline Didier!)

    Obscure Asian skater No.1
    Triple Lutz - not bad at all!
    Triple Toe - Double Toe - clean as a whistle
    Triple Loop - Double Axel Sequence - clean
    Layback - wait, an American layback, beautiful!
    Spiral sequence - two good positions, one ugly one
    Double Salchow - Double Toeloop - clean, but probably not what she was looking for
    Triple Toeloop - good
    Double Axel - very nice
    nice moves in the field
    Sitspin - aborted, lost balance but no fall
    Footwork - slow, generic
    Triple Salchow - girl got guts
    Combination spin - she should do 3 layback spins each program, that's her best

    Program was bland, tingly slow violin music. But it was well done, she stayed on her feet. And what I saw was rotated.

    Score: 91.05

    Eat something, please!!!!
    Triple Flip - saved it
    Triple Lutz - Double Toe - clean
    Triple Toe - clean, great speed in and out
    Single Rittberger
    Combination spin - decent
    Spiral Sequence - okay, good flexibility
    Double Axel - both hands down
    Double Toeloop - Double Toeloop - clean
    Double Axel - step out
    Flying sitspin - alright
    Footwork - yawn
    Last spin - halfway decent

    She looks awfully concentrated and always somehow unhappy. The three opening jumping passes were great, she lost steam afterwards. The entire French team is now sitting on the bench, Joubert with two girls on his Lap. They are having fun.

    Score:78,08

    Badly, Didier moved ahead of her overall. Three deductions will do that to you.

    In terms of size or in terms of fashion?
