Off the ice
GPF Pairs SP
The pairs SP is the first senior event today and will begin at 8 PM local time/11 AM GMT. I didn't see any threads for any of the segments so I figured I'd start this one.
Interestingly, S/Z and S/S will not start in the same group, because Aljona and Robin qualified in 4th place; I wonder if this might have an effect on the scoring in any way? Whatever happens, I don't expect them in the first group tomorrow.
Warm-Up Group 1
1 Dan ZHANG / Hao ZHANG CHN
2 Yuko KAVAGUTI / Alexander SMIRNOV RUS
3 Aliona SAVCHENKO / Robin SZOLKOWY GER
Warm-Up Group 2
4 Maria MUKHORTOVA / Maxim TRANKOV RUS
5 Qing PANG / Jian TONG CHN
6 Xue SHEN / Hongbo ZHAO CHN
Good luck to all the skaters!

Icenetwork is streaming it live.
Universal sports will telecast this and the OD together later today (7:00 pm on my cable company)
Thank you RAI sport! Wow, finally figure skating on TV, instead of small PC screen (freezing often).

Sing, Sing, Sing
They are in black and silver costumes
Throw 3L great
bds smooth but a little slow on exit
sbs spins fair unison (couple little breaks)
amazing lift, man is he strong
pair spin OK not to music
footwork - a little slow I thought, but a neat cartwheel in it.
End on the music.

3 twist - good
3 sbs salchow - ok
throw 3L - ok
a bit unsynchronized on sbs spin.
slow step sequence.
That was a ton better than Z/Z's previous outings this season.
