    I'm ecstatic on Shen and Zhao's win! Yes! They finally have GOLD. Happy for Pang and Tong too. That was quite a skate! Congrats to Aliona and Robin for getting bronze.

    Well, I'm assuming she is crying because she knew a clean skate would have given them gold tonight.

    Congrats to all medalists! So happy that Pang and Tong finally had their moment. I hope Aliona and Robin don't retire. I know he is no spring chicken, but I still feel their best is yet to come. Xue and Hongbo are marvelous competitors and people. So pleased for them and Yao Bin. I can finally breathe a little, at least until tomorrow.

    As for all the wuzrobbed talk about P/T, they would still have lost even with the timing violation, which they have incurred several times before. As good as P/T were in the SP, S/Z were much cleaner and more precise with all their elements executed bigger and higher and faster. Their margin after the SP was completely justifiable.

    P/T's FS score was the highest they've ever gotten by a mile (and well deserved) a truly Olympian effort. Shen and Zhao are not the first and will not be the last to win an Olympics without winning the FS.

    This is a wonderful moment for Chinese skating, let's not ruin it.

    I'm so happy for S/Z, P/T, S/S, and most of all, Bin Yao (who just cracked a small smile :D).

    Congratulations to all!

    Still teary eyed from watching the medal ceremony! So much love and pride. I do feel bad for Ali and Robin but tonite shouldn't take away everything they have done in the past couple of years. They (along with Ingo) should be proud of themselves.

    Interesting fact: Torino's 3rd, 4th, and 6th place finishers went into Vancouver as one of the highest ranked skaters from the last games. In the end, they went 1, 2, and 3!

    Oh and sorry to gloat but... RUSSIAN SHUTOUT!!!!

    Now let's hope the happy mojo continues tomorrow. Dreams really do come true!

    Double congrats to the Chinese!! And of course to Bin; having the gold and silver medalists must be a total dream. Wonder what his next wave of skaters will be like? Anyone have any info on that?

    Yes, being a gold medal favourite is an extremely difficult situation to be in. I do hope Aliona and Robin stay on, though. If S/Z can win a medal in their 30s, I'm sure Aliona and Robin can.....

    I am so happy for P/T and S/Z. I am sooo upset that I didn't get to see them though. My feed works fine during speed skating, luge, etc., but will never fail to die on me when it's figure skating. Oh well, at least I got to see the victory ceremony. Finally, P/T have gotten an olympic medal. They deserved bronze four years ago.
