    British Eurosport showed the first two groups and then went over to the Biathlon .
    Promised to be back for the last two groups .... l hope those Biathletes finish their course in record time .
    I really enjoyed the Japanese Dance by the Reeds, great concept and smart use of props.
    Would have loved to see Hoffmann/Zavozin....oh well..

    I have to agree. While I love N&B's FD, their OD doesn't thrill me in the same way. It's a bit cheesy, not as bad as Domnina and Shabalin's, but on its way there. I can't wait to see their FD tomorrow though, it's one of my favourites ever and I think they could move up a bit with it.

    Loved Hoffman and Zavozin!

Part of the problem is perhaps that North American audiences (and myself included in that ) - are somewhat clueless on this type of dance, whereas, we are more familiar with other of the folk dances presented. Thanks for the insight re: what their military dances look like.

    As you can see, the most representative dance hold of this dance is "arm in arm", which this team did emphasize throughout their performance such as the opening. The only exception being the circular step sequence, which is more or less a required adaptation to fit in the ISU rules. As you know, a closed dance hold or Waltz position is considered more technically difficult than an open position. As for the lift, that was appropriate as well, sailors definitely do lift each other in a playful manner. I felt the intepretation was right on character given the necessary adaptations to transfer this dance on ice.

    The score they had in the CD held them down too much. The skaters below them had a lesser OD, but their CD+OD scores are higher than the second British team.

    I really dont understand Eurosport scheduling sometimes, they usually broadcast the whole CD event and then only 12 OD and just the final group for the FD. Its nonsense sometimes.

    The Kerrs apparently did great. Going back to the Scottish program was a wise decision.
