    yeah yeah authenticity of original dance,

    sorry if someone already posted D/S FD: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgv6vEY35xQ

    just saw it. all i have to say is:
    it looks like a dress rehearsal.
    stumble here, stumble there
    failed twizzles, weak lifts.
    messy footwork.

    i am heavily disappointed but the costumes are finally nice..

    Well, I've managed to watch both the OD and FD and both are a hot mess.....very sloppy, slow, so many mistakes, and 'nuf said before about the OD costumes and makeup..............if they want a medal, they have several great teams to beat who have stepped up and presented wonderful programs this year, in fact I think they don't even measure up to any of the top 10 or 12 teams I've seen so far this year............but then again, they were "gifted" at Worlds '09, but this is far worse that what they put out for that comp.

    This:
    Referee of the dance panel at the Russian championships was Gorshkov, who also doubles as head of the ice dancing technical committee of the International Skating Union, with plenty of weight to throw around at the Olympics.

    And the technical controller at the national dance championships was the ponytailed Alla Shekhovtsova, wife of Russian federation president Valentin Piseev. Shekhovtseva, who always has strong opinions about skaters, will probably show up at the Olympics as a judge or some kind of official, although no one knows why the ISU would ever allow a federation president’s wife to judge.
    is "cooking up" nothing by Beverly Smith. It's pointing to legitimate conflicts of interest.

    Wow indeed. The Russians have a good store of young talent. She is amazing. Those jumps are out of this world. I can't believe she has another 2 years before she can comepete at worlds.

    May I ask you where the legitimate conflict of interest is?

    Is it because Shekhovtsova is the wife of the Federation President????

    Then why is it worse than when Presidents of the National Federations themselves serve as ISU Judges, Controllers , etc...

    Why B.Smith does not mention the President of the Canadian Figure Skating???

    Aren't Krail & Peter also coached by Linichuk? Linichuk appears particularly taken by this aboriginal concept.

    According to http://www.isuresults.com/bios/isufs00008396.htm ... yes

    As I say - I think the "intention" to create a program that would "close" (receptive) to Canadian Indian population (it is possible, that them Canadian "folklore" look like as the Aboriginal folklore ) .... but from the best intentions, no ridicule, or something similar

    This is a good question, actually. Is Shekhovtsova realistically any more partial than any other Russian judges in international competition? The conflict of interest comes from within Russia, imo, in terms of getting judging assignments.

    But appearance of scandal.....
