    Pairs Long Program Thread

    1 Stacey KEMP / David KING
    2 Marissa CASTELLI / Simon SHNAPIR
    3 Felicia ZHANG / Taylor TOTH
    4 Ksenia STOLBOVA / Fedor KLIMOV

    5 Wenjing SUI / Cong HAN
    6 Caydee DENNEY / Jeremy BARRETT
    7 Kirsten MOORE-TOWERS / Dylan MOSCOVITCH
    8 Aliona SAVCHENKO / Robin SZOLKOWY

    Just to get one started. Look forward to seeing how the medals play out. Do Sui/Han's COP friendly program make a break into the top three? Can Kirsten and Dylan hold onto silver? Will the pairs season, seeing the breakdown, injury and/or displacement of so many top teams actually have a good narrative?

    Battle for silver & bronze will be intense. Their PB (for the LP) are as follows:
    Sui/Han 111.89
    Denney/Barrett 111.95
    Moore-Towers/Moscovitch 117.24

    I'm worried that D/B won't be able to hold on to their spot...

    I am really looking forward to the avatar program. I also hope Denney and Barrett can hold onto or improve their position.

    Sui & Han are pretty inconsistent with their SBS jumps, so the door could be open. I think D/B will need them to mess up to stay ahead of them though.

    Wow this GBR pair has been skating since '03 together. Doesn't really look like it.

    That was really shaky overall. And her bad leg wrap hurts her on so many elements.

    I love the choreography in that Avatar routine. I really want to see it clean.

    I enjoyed C/S! Opening choreo was interesting, some good lifts, and a solid throw 3A attempt.

    Aww I really like this US Pair (Marissa and Simon). Never notice them but so far I'm loving all the Avatar programs. Really innovative. They need to work on their single jumps but other wise I really like them. So far I'm loving 2 US pair skaters. This hasn't happened for me in a long time. It feels weird not rooting for any pairs from my own country. All my favs are from other countries.

    Did Zhang and Toth just start skating together. That was awkward.

    They look like 2 kids skating instead of a pair. Lots of room to grow. The program - even without looking at the mistakes - seemed very rough around the edges.

    I enjoyed them too. Energized my interest in future of pairs skating.
