    Castelli/Shanpir: He's gigantic compared to her. Two falls (from him on sbs triple, from her throw triple). Spins out of sync. He seemed tight the whole way through, to be honest. Solid triple twist, though.

    I'm fine with that - they're still juniors. This is strictly for fun.

    Does Castelli look a little like Gedevanishivili to anyone else?

    Unless a Pair team is really good the size difference is too distracting for me. It looks ridiculous

    Did Caydee Denney get a new outfit? I think I would have remembered this one.

    Zhang/Toth - better than I thought. See a good future if they stick with it.
    There was a Canadian dance team who used Zorba and it was super but unfortunately, it was during the Soviet era. I think those Canadian dancers should have worked on the program for More-Towers/Moscovitch. The pairs couple are not looking musical.

    The other two teams were not at their best, for sure.

    Agreed. Do people who know the history of this team know if they have jumping issues? Because his height and breadth suggest that that could be a problem (physics being what it is).

    I liked the way Zhang/Toth skated to the music. I found it a charming program. Did not like too much else in the first group.
    The Zorba looked under-reheasred to me.

    What's the link to the NTV feed? My Google Translator is confusing me.

    Kemp/King: she landed herself in the triple twist, but the throw loop was gorgeous (beautiful highlight with the music as well - it's like the loop replaced Chris Martin). They never once were in the same position in the sbs spins - he stumbled going in and I think he was just working on trying to get the levels as high as possible (aka, I think this element will get straight -3 GOES despite no fall). I quite like this team but they never seem to really get it together. I don't even know why I like them, truth be told.

    Adorable junior world champions and they really sold the program but it was too frantic for me They were moving their arms so fast that they weren't together at times. I need some chamomile tea after that.
