Znang/Zhang. Don't like this light jazzy music for them. They are just not fun skaters, but maybe they can try better. Huge 3 twist. She popped sbs 3S, Huge throw 3L.
61.92.Into 4th place. Well, they did not have sbs jump.
So The results are clear. Shen/Zhao are 10 points ahead of everybody else here!
Than it's 3 pairs with very close results. I'm happy for I/M for current 3 place, hope they can stay on podium tomorrow.
This was one of the most horrific music selections for the pairs ever. What's with all those classically arranged pop-songs? Hotel California from D/B, Who wants to live forever by S/Z, Yesterday by the young Russians? My ears are crying. What are people thinking, that an Olympic audience would not understand decent music and would get better into a program with pop songs everybody knows.
The low score of the Zhangs - maybe the death spiral got deductions, I don't think he achieved the required position.
Aside from Shen/Zhao, I found the rest of the programs generally lackluster. I know they were trying to do something different, but I don't think that music suited Zhang/Zhang.
Totally agree with that.. The music selections once again remind us that we're in the olympic year. But if you want real ear-bleeding, I suggest you go back to the ladies skate in COR.. I almost suffocated after a while of listening to one horrible music choice after the other so much that I actually rejoiced Mao's LP music. :chorus:
Great SP result for Shen/Zhao! They should sail easily to a gold medal win here at Cup of China. Very happy for them!!
I'm so happy for S/Z! The costumes are great, especially Xue's. Thet looked so refreshing and sharp! Megan may need to consider lighten up a bit
I think I can no longer enjoy the beauty of figure skating from the pairs category.
BTW, this is my first post on GS. Hope it won't dampen your high spirits Here.
