loved s/s! great way to end the pairs comp.
Was that S/S' cleanest lp performance ever?
Off the ice
Costumes much better, program much better though still rough around the edges. But they did this in less than a month. Wow.
Wicked Yankee Girl
8 Aliona SAVCHENKO / Robin SZOLKOWY GER 1 74.16
LP Out of Africa
Little white dress with white wrist bands? Off White shirt black pants?
triple toe triple toe sequence very nice
huge 3 flipt thow
spins reasonably synch'd
pair spin, slow and not that delightful
music very slow
He more or less misses the triple twist catch and she lands on almost her own
Lifts strong as always
Love the entry to the DS
a little slow and awkward in the DS
last throw very, very good to end.
Gutsy to have the throw the last move.
Crowd giving them a standing ovation
Heck of a performance for a program put together that quickly
Score 132.55 Season's best 206.75 total (!!)
On cloud nine and refusing to come down!
Great skate and standing o for S/S!
I LOVE their costumes; it's such a nice change! I hope that trend stays.
I liked this program much more than the previous one they had. I'm also very happy to see that they are not looking like trainwrecks for once - in regards to their costumes!
I find the music a bit boring though and they had a horrendous death spiral!
absolutely loved S/S's program... holy cow...
what a GREAT pairs competition, overall!
Aliona and Robin !!!! A lot ot celebrate.
Beautiful, beautiful new FS. Skated cleanly.
Beautiful simple costumes that do them justice.
Aliona didn't hold her blade during the death spiral.
Aliona doesn't look orange.
Robin is so hot (it's not new but... always worth mentioning)
Off the ice
Is that a new WR total score? I think it might be!
ETA: it is! By a fraction of a point. Well done, Robin & Aliona! (and Ingo Steuer).

wow. just gorgeous for S&S. M&T had amazing composure and nerves, and beautiful landings on the risk elements also. wish there could be more than 1 winning pair. and D&D too--really nice emotional connection. thank goodness for all the music from old movies
they skated very well, and to think the program is only 5 weeks old gives a lot of hope.
S/S, M/T and Z/Z qualifies fro the GPFs
Oh boy I really loved that program from S&S and I'm really loving S&S. Everything about them. I love their basic look - he so reminds me of Grinkov in his understated composure, grace and expression - and his overall build and style of movement -- his expression and his partnering is absolutely beautiful, so calm, secure, and strong. I love how he takes his time. They've got those classic pairs G&G style proportions - he's tall, handsome, strong, she's petite, long-legged and strong - and very expressive.
Very proud of M&T - when the strap happened I thought - so much for them. Put their history of shaky lp's together with this wardrobe malfunction and they're toast. Except - they weren't.

The Throw Triple Flip was amazing, even for them.
Did you see Ingo Steuer in the replay, watching their final throw, and then him doing the final gesture along with them? So touching!
