    I think there's about 14 World medals among the six of them, 5 World titles between three of them.

    Should be a great final.

    I'm a bit inebriated from end-of-semester 'celebrating,' so take my comments with a grain of salt...

    ....but am I the only one who thinks that cutesy version of the Blue Danube that Kavaguti/Smirnov use at the end of their LP is entirely dischordant with the music they use at the beginning of their program?

    This is the first program from K/S that I kind of like (maybe bc I love waltz). I do not like how the elements are planned, though - 3 lifts in the row is not a very balanced layout.

    @evangeline: No, you ar not the only one! I thought exactly the same. But the music coice wasn't a surprise, because K/S always have strange music cuts...

    What a beautiful program from S/S... Too bad about the first 2 jumps.

    So glad that P/T did so well! First time in the 200+ club?

    Judging by that performance, P/T should be on the podium, and by a relatively big margin. Let's see.

    Nice for M/T to have skated another almost clean lp

    Congratulations to the podium finishers!

    I wish that S/S had skated clean too. Olympics Game is going to be very exciting.
