Any practies reports?
The Hubbells made the second group over Weaver and Poje. Where did they accumulate the points?
Good question. I'm going to put a topic on The Edge for feedback on the Skating Order.
This will be starting soon.
Justin Tv canell will show the CD?
Warm-Up Group 1
Andrea CHONG / Guillaume GFELLER CAN
dark shiny gray lightweight skirt that does not move well at all and exposes undies at inopportune times
deep vee neckline
black gold gloves on her
black pants, white shirt grey op-art diamond pattern vest
legs not kicking up at same time
a bit too close to boards once
timing not great
skirt movement very distracting
awkward move during the close
Carolina HERMANN / Daniel HERMANN GER
Black pants white shirt black vest and red pocket square
bright red backless dress with a triangular skirt with a strange white splotch on her butt with a stripe leading from it to the hemline
hard to explain. This is very roller-rink in feeling rather than tango of any sort. Skated very smooth instead of sharp and crisp. Rather slow. Better than last couple.
Ekaterina BOBROVA / Dmitri SOLOVIEV RUS
backless black dress with spaghetti straps and red string trim on bodice. Lots of necklaces and dog collar look.
he's all in black
They are sharper, faster and getting some tango feel going than the previous 2 teams. Deeper edges. Some two footed looking ness in a couple spots where I don't think there were supposed to be? Probably to deal with the small rink problem.
Kaitlyn WEAVER / Andrew POJE CAN
vertical stripe black/gray pants white shirt & gray/black stripe vest
slightly darker red backless with net over it, one armed dress with black lace insets and one elbow fake glove on opposite side. tasty black leaves on one shoulder
Required red rose in her blonde hair
On the whole, very nice, AFA I could tell. Could have been faster and had deeper edges, but really pretty good.
She says, "We did it!!!"
Score: 32.18 They are thrilled. Crowd goes wild.
Coach says, "Fantastic"
Into first place.
I'm a new P/B fan. They're so chic and intense. V/M need a new designer. Hell, were they that much better?
Warm-Up Group 2
Madison HUBBELL / Keiffer HUBBELL USA
Black dress high neck in front, bit bite out of the back, long sleeves, red bow/flower at back of short blonde hair
bodice is black lace
He looks John Denverish somehow. Red shirt black vest, pants. Could be the mullet.
It might be just me, but their timing seemed off in first iteration, particularly.
Legline slightly off now and then.
I'd have W&P ahead of them by quite a bit.
Score: 27.14 into third behind Bobrova
Nathalie PECHALAT / Fabian BOURZAT FRA
Very odd op artish brown and white pattern dress with matching hand band Log cabin quiltish. strappy crisscrosses in the back.
He is doing the rather seedy look somehow. His tie is in her skirt material. Stripe pants (dark) red cuffs and black jacket with lining in red
Much faster, and some impressive edges. Intermittently as sharp as it should be, but really good. Closer together than any previous couple, too. Should score well, I think
Score: 35.55 (SB)
Emily SAMUELSON / Evan BATES USA
Her hair has a 3 inch zigzag in the part.
Evan in red sparkly shirt, black sparkly striped vest and pants
Emily in a Charlestony looking dress in spangled purple with red fringes. High neckline, Backless with long sleeves.
Like Bobrova, there's some two footed bits. Not sharp. Nice legline as always, though. But that's where I'd score it. Behind W&P.
Score: 31.47 SB in 3rd place, behind W&P
Tessa VIRTUE / Scott MOIR CAN
Scott in black v necked jump suit
Tessa in very long red dress, sleeveless, v neck line, quite plain
My impression is that they can do this dance better than they just did it. Close together, good speed and edges, but not as crisp as I know they could do it. Visible adjustments to the rink size, I think. The odd bit of snow kicked up.
I would probably have had it about 38, but what do I know. Significantly better score than anyone has had in a CD this year.
Ah, thank you Doris - you're about to answer my question!
