    Practice Sessions on SkateBuzz

    For anyone interested, SkateBuzz is live-streaming the Skate Canada practice sessions all day today. Alissa Czisny looked great in her short program run-through.

    I've tried to watch, but it isn't working for me. Do you need to be suscribed to skatebuzz or something?

    You might have to be in Canada to be able to watch, but if you are in Canada, you don't need to register or anything.

    In the second group of ladies, Sarah Meier left the ice a little sooner than the rest of the ladies and it looked like her leg or ankle was being looked at by medical personnel. Sarah hobbled backstage with her arm over someone's shoulder.

    That's definately not good.



    I hope she's feeling better now.

    In the Pairs practices, I/M of RUS looked very good. All 3 CAN teams also looked good. M-T/M have definitely improved since last season. It was the first time I've seen S/M of the US--they show a lot of promise.

    The commentators also mentioned that Bryce Davison had knee surgery and is out for the Grand Prix season.

    I just peeked in from time to time, haven't seen her landing a 3lutz. In the contrary, Cynthia is quite solid.

    D/R look very good together, landing a side by side 3lutz and 3T-2T-2T combo.

    I missed men's group1. In group 2, Javier lands a quad, Adam's 3A is still bothering him so does Patrick's, but Patrick's 4T-3T appears to be bery solid, and Kevin lands 4T-3T-3Lo.

    Over at FSUniverse, they are reporting that several of the men are landing quads in practice.

    Sigh...So much for the hope he'd only given it a severe sprain. A Speedy Recovery to Bryce!!

    So wish I was somewhere else where High Speed's available so I could watch Skatebuzz. :(

    I'm glad to hear that I/M are looking good. I really enjoy them and hope they make the Russian team this season but it's going to be very difficult with Volosozhar/Trankov, Mukhortova/Blanchard, Kawaguchi/Smirnov, Gerboldt/Enbert and Bazarova/Larionov! It's very important that I/M impress at Skate Canada otherwise their chances will drop to nil.

    Yay, skatebuzz... although I only found out about this in time to see the dance practice, it was great. I lo-o-ove to see the practices.

    Looks like this could shape up to be my favourite K/K FD, ever. Strength and grace..some really nice lifts. It ain't over 'til it's over... Really like the cut of Tibbets & Brubaker's jib. C/Z...What the..? Looked fairly scrambly and sew up his pockets, please! (This cannot begin to contend with the Shibs..)
    Hideous costumes on G/B and the non GW parts were pretty ho-hum. Nice looking couple though.

    C/P looked fast, neat, nice intricacies.. some great lifts.( Thanks, CD) Might be a little improvement in her shoulders , but he still doesn't look at her much.. P/I certainly fit right in... great looking as a couple..What a back..music seems to work, but couldn't see all of GW properly. Also did some of the lifts from their FD..yum. I liked the German couple too..feel sort of non-commital about A/T. this will be ve-e-ery interesting tomorrow.

    I've given up watching Practice Sessions. What you see there is not what you necessarily get during competitions.
