Yes, that's how I see it. Their Mexico program has no Mexico in it at all and yet their SD is exquisite.
I just watched the US sports coverage of the SD on TV.
Tracy says Carron & Jones only got level 1 for their midline step, which explains why they are lower here than at Skate Canada.
Cannuscio and Lorello made the US sports coverage on TV and you can really see on the big screen why they scored so much better here at TEB than they did in China. They learned a lot in 3 weeks
There's a team that might benefit from leaving Delaware and going to one of the Detroit coaches.
I really liked Canuscio & Lorello. At CoC, I liked them ,but I thought they'd be ones to watch for next year.. WoW! That was quick.
I didn't have time to bum around on YouTube today ,and their WSS FD from CoC doesn't leap out of my memory..still , neither did their SD before today, so I'm really looking forward to their skate tomorrow. To quote Isabella in the KnC , " Holy Moly!" and "Geez , Louise! "... (Gotta love 'em.)
completely agree about R/T..I love the SD.. Their FD...hmmmm. As doris says ,it lacks Mexico..A bit more colour in their costumes would help , but there's no real "andale!" in their choreography. I like them lots ,though.
I really like R/T more than B/S, theyr should be #1 Russian team, IMO. Hopefully they can learn quick in two weeks, pull their FD score over 10 points like the other team. I love their edges, love the way they move, particularly him.
But when you get put on Nick Verreos's worst dressed list, you should consider retailoring the dress, no matter whether it matches the movie, IMO.
Yes. Riazanova skated with Jonathan Guerreiro prior to teaming with Tkachenko. They won bronze in world juniors in 2009 (Their FD). I have to admit that I was disappointed they split up, but they both seem to be doing well (he's still skating junior, with Ekaterina Pushkash.
I read in a Russian forum that the coach of Riazanova/Tkachenko had chosen a Baroque theme for their FD, but it did not pleased TAT and she "advised" him to change music and theme. SO, I think he did not have enough time to create a better FD.
I like R/T more than B/S and their SD is really beautiful!
Toni, It's the part where the dress makes the girl look bulky and in odd proportion. (source: Verreos)
