    They always have good speed. But the version of that program that surfaced recently was so blah and boring, and glancing at the protocols, I have to wonder about their PCS. Some judges gave them 9s! I'm sorry, but that is ludicrous. but then, the scoring has been a bit generous for some of the skaters, it's not just them.

    I like Alissa Czisny' dress. Not perfect up close, but the colors are beautiful.

    ETA: wow, what has Elena Glebova done to her hair? It's awful. And the costume isn't helping, either. Yuck.

    Not a good competition at all for the Hermann siblings. They were beat by four teams that were behind them at last Euros.. They need to work a lot if they wanna be sent to the OG. The GER olympic comitee is probably the pickiest of all ...

    A bit suprised by Hoffmann/Zavozin low place too. YAY for Mallory/Rand. I love them. Does anyone know if she already has citizenship? What about the younger Reed?

    Most of the first place finishers got generous scoring. It wasn't just Davis/White. Look at Stephane's scores and Alissa's! I mean, 17th in TES, yet 1st in PCS?? That seems more ludicrous to me than Davis/White's scores.

    I am so in love with this program. I think the emotion was lacking from them here, but it will surely be there at the olympics. The music has that building, championesque quality that they did not have before. I loved Shindler's list and would have have minded seeing them use it again this year but the content in this program. It is almost like watching ice dance.

    Loved Stephane's programs but he has a lot of work to do jump wise.

    Davis and White. OMG. That freedance is a masterpiece. Those lifts? Is there such a thing as level 5 if needed?

    I totally agree with you. I start loving this with the first seconds I saw. It's so beautiful. Although I don't like Aljonas dress. But the music is a fantastic choice of Ingo. When they'll skate it clean at the Olympics, there is no chance for Shen/Zhao to take the gold medal..

    Don't underestimate Shen/Zhao. I mean they didn't win 3 world titles for nothing

    OMG! What did Elena do to her hair?! It's not bad, but I like it more how it was before.

    I love the dress! I think it's gorgeous!

    Very surprised by Zoltan Kelemen he must have skated the LP of his life!!! Good for him. A little bummed BLR Kazakov didn't make it just by one place .... And North Korea surprises again and sends a skater.. I really wish the PRK skaters were sent to more international competitions.

    Wow, Kelemen made it in ? You know, as a hungarian born in Romania, like Zoltan is, I am very proud of his accomplishment. I saw him only in SP at Worlds, as he usually doesn't even make it to the LP.

    Romania has not have a male skater at the Olympics I think since Lillehammer, if I am not mistaken.

    It's all wrong with her coloring; also, as Tim Gunn would say, it's a lot of look (for an ice skater). I think it overwhelms her.

    Julia Sebestyen looked nice. In fact I think I'll add her to my favorites list this season, because I think it's super cool that she qualified for her 4th Olympics. Go Julia!

    Speaking of qualifying, apparently the Georgian Federation has already announced they will only send one lady to Vancouver (Elene, of course). This means that the first alternate has also qualified for the Olympics - Tamar Katz for Israel. Now she needs to meet her national criteria, which I hope will be a bit more reasonable than what has been reported.

    You are mistaken! Cornel Gheorghe was 21st in Nagano and Gheorghe Chiper was 23rd in Salt Lake and a very respectable 14th in Torino

    Thank you. I should've checked that before

    I thought Gheorghe retired after Lillehammer and completely forgot about Chiper.

    Thanks for the link to the Ladies LP pictures. I must say that a lot of those costumes were um, interesting to say the least. I really am looking forward to the start of the Grand Prix!
