Brodeur/Mattatall CAN - Pairs Short - Four Continents 2010
She fell on all her jumps and one throw. FS 90 something
Wow, looking at the live results page indicates that every pair that has skated so far has had a deduction, no clean skates yet....
Is there a live feed at the moment?
Yue ZHANG / Lei WANG CHN
Beautiful triple twist to start, SBS triple toe double toe, lack unison but successful, she falls on next double axel. wonky start to first lift, not a lot of speed, far apart and little off in sinc, beautiful body line on spiral sequence, nice throw triple loop, nice throw sal (I think). nice death spiral but ends in poor exit, one handed exit from star lift, beautiful aerial position, slow comb spins, she's crying; wonder if she's hurt just mad. she looks hurt, PJ likes their finess, nice body match. very attractive young couple Score is 51.20 42.24 -1 total FS 92.44 total 146.60 1st place
Moore Towers/Moscovitz CAN FS Pairs 4CC 2010
First ISU international, all over the place on SBS triple toe and double axel to open, nice triple twist, throw triple loop with her hand down, lasso lift is ok, messes up a throw triple sal with two foot landing, hand down on SBS triple toe, last lift and all their lifts have innovative entry, nice low death spiral, PJ says "not a text book perfect performance, but you can see the potential", "even with mistakes, nice quick recovery" (PJ is the nicest commentator on air). 46.24/41.76 -1 FS total 87.00 total 135.76
