Maybe this is the wrong thread to ask but can we watch the US ladies anywhere online from here in europe? I could not watch the Canadian Nationals as it was blocked outside Canada so had to wait.

Its my impression or Elene had slim??!!

Real happy for Carolina- her programs are such a pleasure when they are executed with grace.
Not bad for Laura, I like her FS, much more than SP which she has recycled from last year. Again, if she skates it nicely it's a very entertaining and beautiful 4 minutes.
Extremely sad for Kiira, if only her nerves would have coped better. I can't believe Elene medaled- the cheapest bronze I ever did see in my life- the least graceful person on ice in the 101 years the EU Championships have been held. Ugly costume, ugly music and ugly mistakes. I can't believe there was no lady better to kick this one off the podium- I'm mortified, even more so considering the spectacle the Georgian president and his wife have been making of themselves in the Estonian capital- spending like crazy while 75% of their nation are unemployed and giving outrageous anti-russian lectures in our universities. No grace or class on any of their behalf. I am so disappointed she got bronze!
Go ahead, tear me to bits- I DON'T care...

Off the ice
I'm thrilled for Caro, who has had such an awful year coming in and had been written off by just about everyone. She obviously wasn't perfect today, but the important thing for her is that she never gave up on the performance, and I hope that will give her the confidence she needs for the Olympics. I still think she can contend for a medal. This win obviously meant a lot to her and her interview afterward was wonderful.
Elene - I'm not sure any bronze medalist this year, at any event, could have been happier! Good for her. Looking at the other bronze medalists at Euros, we have two 2009 champions (Joubert and K/N) the 2009 bronze medalists (M/T), and the girl who couldn't even make it into the LP last year - and that with a large field, not the new version. Yes, the standard isn't too high for Euro ladies, but still - what a great comeback.
Someone asked about the gala - it's tomorrow afternoon.

about the loop...she was used to take it from a sequence of 3step (don't know the exact name in english, sorry) and now she has completely change this entrance...
about PCS, !, and levels: she's stronger than all these trick!!!
BTW, hope the Olys will be judged better

I hope to be able to see the Gala tomorrow. I enjoyed the Euro Ladies and despite a few falls I thought the skating was enjoyable.

I wish them all good luck in Vancouver.

Hauteor, don't let your politic opinions spill on Elene. For me Elene is a joy to watch. She has had problems, not welcome to train in Russia, right? I am glad she has found her place in Hackensack with R Wagner, who actually was in Tallin. (Doesn't she have US ladies to company in Spokane, like many other US coaches that didn't go to Tallin?) Elene looked very happy and sweet in k&c

Geez - I was happy for Elene and thought she could have won Silver.

Add me to the chorus. I thought Elene should have had the silver also.
