4 Huibo DONG / Yiming WU CHN

Music: Hotel California.Nice to hear, not many people use it.
2twist, sbs 3T - fall for her,not great sbs spin.a bit slow everythere, 3F throw - wonky landing.
She seems a bit heavy this season, particularly in her legs but maybe it's just my impression.
55.08. Into 2nd place.
I enjoyed D/B SP. To bad about their jumps. I also love their music Hotel California. Good job.
Ilushechkina/ Maisuradze.Yesterday by the Beatles.
Nice sbs 3T, nice death spiral at last, 3L throw huge, 3 twist, good sbs spin, bravo! I wish she had dress on, it looks a bit awkward in the pants. She smiles a lot, it's nice. Wonderful lifts, she is so short. Don't look that juniorish at all! Well done. no applause almost!!WHY?
62.54. Into 2nd place.
Great program by I/M. Is this their first Senior event. Why have I not heard of them. The were excellent, great potential.
I/M.... Her purple outfit is distracting me. Everything was clean.. Her 3T looked underrotated, not a great catch on the 3twist.
62 is probably too high, but they are scoring high in general. D/B got a 55 with a pretty rough skate.
what a hell are those blue costumes :frown2:
Off the ice
V/M - costumes were awful, program has potential. Steuer has helped them improve quite a bit, but to me Morozov still tends to look lost when he's not doing a pair element.
I approve of her new hair color.
62.98, not bad considering the mistake on the SBS jumps and the completely out of sync SBS spin.
Maybe they are channeling Aloina and Robin. lol

V/M... What are they wearing?!?! He stepped out of sbs jumps. Good throw 3loop. Their 3twist is so big!! But I've seen him catch it better in the past. They eek their way into 2nd.
No, they finished 4th at cup of russia last year and finished 5th at Euros.

Unlike many, I kind of like the Zhangs, but that was boring and nowhere near as good as their 2008-9 SP.
Shen and Zhao go into the LP with almost a ten point lead .
