    Free Dance Preview and Virtual Program Nov.6 2:00 am

    Pechalat and Bourzat are carrying such a lead into the free dance, that it seems that they have this competition wrapped up. It would appear that their strategy of multiple outings for their programs early in the season has paid off, and the switch two weeks ago to the Dr. Zhivago soundtrack for their SD were very smart. In fact, it is entirely likely that the order of finish after the free dance will be just the same as after the short dance.


    Isabella Cannuscio and Ian Lorello USA (ISU Ranked 48th) 38.34 points in the SD
    Coach: Karen Ludington, A. Kirsanov, C. Moxley
    Choreographer: Alexander Kirsanov
    FD West Side Story by Leonard Bernstein
    6th at JGPF last year
    4th in US Juniors last year
    5th at LPIDC in the FD
    This is their debut on the Grand Prix.

    Xueting Guan and Meng Wang CHN (ISU Ranked 47th)
    40.19 in the SD
    Coach: Ge Gao, Chao Liu
    Choreographer: Tianyi Zhang
    FD The Sands of Time (from Prince of Persia soundtrack)

    4th at Finlandia
    4th in the SD with 50.89, with level 4 in both segments of the GW
    75.48 in the FD
    Hubbell's had a catastrophic fall in the SD, resulting in a 3 point deduction, plus loss of points for an element

    Xiaoyang Yu and Chen Wang CHN (ISU Ranking 37th) 45.33 SD Score
    Coach: Hongyan Xi
    Choreographer: Natalia Linichuk

    WARMUP GROUP 2

    Xintong Huang and Xun Zheng CHN (ISU ranking 17th) 49.70 in the SD

    Choreographer: Natalia Linichuk
    FD Singing in the Rain (from American in Paris)

    FD Nagyidai Ciganok (Gypsy Witch) soundtrack by Experidance
    Hungarian National Champions for 2 years
    13th at Olympics
    10th at Worlds
    1st at Nepela
    2nd at Finlandia
    Level 2 and Level 3 on the GW at Finlandia, finishing 2nd with 54.75
    81.77 in the FD at Finlandia
    Level 3 in both segments on the GW at Nepela, finishing 1st with 59.15
    86.26 in the FD at Nepela
    They would have scored a bit higher in the SD, if Max hadn't missed his hold on his foot in the twizzles.

    FD Melody of the White Nights by Isaak Schwartz
    2nd at Russian Nationals

    8th at Worlds
    15th at Olympics
    He had problems with his 2nd twizzle, making it impossible to do the third twizzle for level 4. They also got a one point deduction, perhaps for a lift that went too long?


    Federica Faiella and Massimo Scali ITA (Ranked ISU 7th) 57.21 in the SD
    Coach: Natalia Linichuk, Paola Mezzadri, G. Karpanosov
    Choreographer: Corrado Giordani, Barbara Melica, Ludmila Vlasova

    7 time Italian National Champions, including last year
    3rd at Worlds
    2nd at Europeans
    5th at Olympics
    They were some 6 points lower in the SD than Pechalat and Bourzat due to TES alone, due to his catching his skate in her dress in the second segment of the Golden Waltz during one of the step segments used to determine the level of the Golden Waltz second segment. They only scored Level 2 in the midline step, also.

    Nathalie Pechalat and Fabian Bourzat FRN (Ranked 2nd by the ISU) 64.12 in the SD
    Coach: Alexander Zhulin, Oleg Volkov, Maxim Staviski
    FD City Lights - Medley - London Symphonic Orchestra
    Choreographer:
    7th at Olympics
    4th at Worlds
    1st at Finlandia
    1st at Nebelhorn
    3rd GPF last year
    90.79 in the FD at Nebelhorn (1st)
    At Finlandia SD, level 2 & Level 3 on the GW, first overall with 59.96
    91.80 in the FD
    They got mostly level 4's in the SD.

    Pechalat/Bourzat were worth waking up for. That was absolutely enchanting. I really hope they can make the World podium this year. My favorite dance performance of the season so far.

    F/S have a really wonderful program, but they were sloppy and had that fall.

    Bobrova/Soloviev were really overmarked, IMO.

    I wonder whether Linichuk will dare to put any skater in a long skirt ever again!

    I know! I hope Federica has shorter skirts by Rostelecom Cup. Long skirts do not work well in figure skating.

    Massimo agree with you according to what he was saying when he was leaving the ice!

    Apart from the mistakes I love the program...it's a pity they've fallen but I kind of expected that..lat week I saw one of their training clip and when I saw that lift I was thinking "let's hope for a short skirt otherwise they'll be in trouble"...but when this program will be skated perfectly it will be wonderflu! I'm sure!

    I liked pechalat a bourzat more than I expected! I'm not a fan of their arrangement of charlie chaplin (it comes to my mind oda's charlie chaplin of last year..it was perfect IMO) but they skated really well and fully deserved the gold medal!
