    I dunno - Davis/White and Virtue/Moir have gotten huge scores on OD + FD portions of the competition and are better CD'ers than everyone else in Europe, outside of DomShabs (and DelSchoes, but we haven't seen them yet). They won't have a six point deficit to overcome, but given the strength of their other two parts, that wouldn't be extraordinarily difficult either.

    I think Ice dancing yesterday was boring. Some of couples try to do so much tricks, they forget to dance at all. Our Finnish male commentaror said about the Italians, nice too see someone dance, that's the original idea of the ice danding. I agree with him.

    I adore both Virtue and Moir and Davis and White, they really dance on the ice.

    I'm talking about the FD. I thought it was implied because I posted it in the FD section.

    To be clear: if DomShab win Olympic Gold because they got a huge lead in the CD, tons and tons of you know what will hit the fan. There is no way their FD matches either D/W or V/M.

    [QUOTE=mycelticblessing;456337]Do you really think this will happen again at the Olympics? I have my doubts.
    <snip>QUOTE]

    Yes, I think it's not only possible but probable that DomShab are being set up for the gold. I think the fix is clearly in, and without an "intervention" of some sort, prepare for some sort of judging scandal. With or without the flap over the aboriginal OD. Well, you might ask what sort of "intervention" event might happen?
    1) Dom/Shab withdraw for whatever reason, either of their own volition or are pulled by the Russian Fed.
    2) Word from "on high" through the back channels (IOC to ISU/Speedy to tech panel/judges) that the scrutiny of judging on skating and ice dance in particular, will be intense and marks will be audited and questioned. Disallowing from panels participants with clear conflicts of interest.
    3) Tonya Harding's ex-husband and cronies get hired.

    I will let you ponder which of these--if any--is more likely.

    D/S poor OD, and only getting about 94 in the Free i think even with the highest CD they cannot hold on to the lead even if they upgrade their OD and Freedance alittle. If V/M or D/W are not rewarded for their difficulty it would hurt ice dance even more.

    Sonia Bianchetti regarding Europeans
    In ice dancing the results are amazing. Domina/Shabalin won the gold medal although they were only second both in the original dance and the free skating. Faiella/Scali were really excellent in the free dance, with unbelievable deep edges and a great passion in their skating. The third place to the Russian couple, Khokhlova/Novitski, is really a mystery to me, and not only to me. I found their skating, their program and their costumes just terrible! The TV commentator said it can only be explained by their nationality.

    points gained in European Championships 2010

    I noticed something really awful about the points gained in European Champioships: in the ISU Communication 1562 you can read that “ the 16 best-placed couples only shall qualify for the final Free Dance in the European Figure Skating Champioships”. In the past years only qualified couples could gain points for the world standings.
    How does it come that now couples that id not qualify for the final free dance and therefore placed themselves after the 16th place are gaining points? ( Kira Geil/Dmitri Matsjuk, Kamila Hajkova/David Vincour, Allison Reed/Otar Japaridze, Nikola Visnona/Lukas Csolley, Katelyn Good/Nikolaj Sorensen, Federica Testa/Christopher Mior, Nikki Georgiadis/Graham Hockley, ksana Klimova Sasha Palomaki).
    How is it possible that couples that did not finish the competition could earn points?
    Maybe there is a mistake and the point have been attributed to the 24 best placed couples like it was in the past years where the 24 best placed couples qualified for the free dance. Points this year should be given only to the 16 best placed couples.

    How can be put in the same classification couples that finished a competition and couples that didn't?
    Does anybody know something about this?

    Well, the German Eurosport commentator said that K&Ns performance was the best of the evening except F&S, and that he loves her dress which fits the "Firebird"-theme very well. I agree.
    So maybe your comment can only be explained by your nationality? :sheesh:
