    News 2010 Olympic Preview to Pairs Figure Skating

    The pairs will be the first skaters competing in Vancouver, skating their short programs just two days after the Opening Ceremonies on Valentine's Day. The table has been set for a delicious entrée of favorites who have the potential to satisfy every craving an observer might have, and the competition even comes with a collection of second-tier teams that offer a sweet dessert for the skating aficionado.

    Just looking for Denny/Barret to make a statement and be in the top 5. and with Evora/Ladwiq the Americans may get 3 teams next season.

    I really don't like it when writers suggest a team or skater will not medal. We all know the most likely medal contenders, but anything can happen. Go Caydee and Jeremy! Go Amanda and Mark! Anything can happen!

    I believe they hold the draw a day or two before the event so we should know the skate order by sometime on Saturday.

    Thanks for the great article!! I was so thrilled to see Shen and Zhao back this season, but must confess that I missed most of the pairs skating so far this season. From the article and the scores at different events (although, again, I didn't see those events)...it seems like the podium and the order on it might be a bit of a nail biter. I'm one of those fans that always hopes the skaters just do their best - so good luck to all the skaters! I admit - if the shorts go well, I'm going to be a nervous wreck watching the LPs.

    Lyndon Johnston (one of the coaches for the US Pairs) just reported to the rink in Florida that the draw will take place tomorrow (Friday) morning.

    Can't wait! I'm so excited! Good luck for the draw my favourite teams!
    BTW, is it going to be a complete random draw, or random draw within groups, say top ten, top tweenty?

    I just hope the media/US at large doesn't EXPECT that (or anything) of them and just lets them skate. Why put pressure on a newbie team? We should learn from those mistakes after Keauna & Rockne. jmo

    Just saw S/Z skate first, S/S last. Not a complete random draw, but by two big groups, and then subgroups for the high rank ones.

    Is this good for S/Z? Will the judges still want to save room in pcs for later skaters?
