Can someone provide the play by play for each element in the pairs short? THANKS!
I love watching but don't know enough to do PBP. PJ Kwong is predicting this podium for pairs:
1. Zhang/Zhang CHN
2. Duhamel/Buntin CAN
3. McLaughlin/Brubaker USA
I don't know, it's time for MC/BRU to step up to the plate after their Nationals.
one minute of warm up to go
Sheesh no live stream. Strange.
I thought I saw it on CCTV 5's schedule, but I can't get my TVU player to play CCTV 5 at the moment. Damn!
First SP Pair on Bold
Ok, I will try PBP for the fun of it. If I make any mistakes, it's because I am a watcher not a skater. Moore Towers and Moscovitz (CAN) skating. SBS triple sal, not successful but stayed up, she two footed. triple lutz twist. not too high. very nice throw triple loop, missed the landing, didn't fall though, nice lift, not a good death spiral, her head doesn't get too low, lost balance, she skates like Kristy Sargeant (former Can champion), who is one of their coaches , nice speed and unison in SBS spins except at the end end. A nice short program for their first international event. PJ Kwong's commentary is helping me with technical stuff here. Their score is 48.76 (28.92 (technical) 19.84(presentation) )
Castelli and Shapier (USA) SP Four Continents
They are in nice black costume, middle eastern music. Nice death spiral to start, great speed, wonderful control PJ Kwong says, I like her smooth transition. nice entrance to double split twist, triple Sal, he fell, SBS spins, off unison a bit. They look nice as a couple, she singled planned a triple sal and double footed. Nice lift, nice unique entry, very slow straight line foot work but nice variations, PJ Kwong says. PJ thinks they will get credited for double thrown. PJ like the footwork variations. The score is 25.16/20.44 -1 44.60 total 2nd place
They are warming up the second group of three pairs.
