    They need at least about 112.70 for the silver, which is definitely doable for them. But they do need to beat around 125.50 for the gold. Possible but it won't be easy.

    So hard to estimate a score when they do something like Mark's slight issue with the jump combo or Amanda's hand down on the throw jump, but also have that amazing throw triple lutz. And that lift!

    I would give Amanda and Mark the silver medal! He stepped out of the 2Axel, she put both hands down on the HUGE throw 3loop, but still fought and landed it, and they had a jittery exit from their final lift, but they were 2nd after the SP, so that should help them. Their speed and lifts are really impressive, the best of the competition, IMO. Well done!

    Evora and Ladwig did a very good job; few bobbles and probably ceded it to Y/C as a result (although second half bonuses might add up). but very respectable skate, so glad tghey will likely be on the world team

    so 3 twist
    3 toes
    th 3 lutz nice
    sbs spins ok unison that they lose by the end.
    mirror spread eagles nice into spiral sequence.
    2 axel half loop 2 axel little tight fight for it
    pairs spin
    lift
    thr 3 loop huge but hand down
    lfit right on beat of music
    death spiral
    lift with problem coming down but they cover and end a second early

    not perfect but really a lovely program and they should be 2nd (or third).

    Still great competition. I wish they didn't have the bobble at the end. Y/C are my fav overall even before coming into this but it's nothing like a competition where everyone is mostly on.

    Denney/Barret - Well choreographed program and well skated musically and packed with high level tricks. They rose to the occasion.

    Marley/Brubaker - Also well choreographed program; well skated and musically packed with high/higher(?) level tricks. What caused the fall? Was it a too close blades or a rut in the ice? It marred the program, but was it forgiveable?

    Caitline/John - Verty nicely skated. She is able to capture this Chopin or Bach(?) music and he is trying.

    Evora/Ladwiq - Probably the best of the teams so far.Both skaters know what to do and they do it well.

    All in All, the USFS has good teams to send to Worlds whatever it turns out.

    Amanda and Mark's scores

    62.09 + 60.26 = 122.35 FS score

    For a total of 185.22. Silver, awesome!

    Caitlin and John win the gold!

    Caydee and Jeremy with the bronze.
    Mary Beth and Rockne with the pewter.

    Two. And it will be the first two probably.

    Wow, NBC actually made a Alissa/Mirai/Rachael SP medley commercial.

    It will definitely be the top 2. Y/C and E/L were the only US teams to win medals internationally this season, both have a bronze from the GP series.

    Congratulations to Caitlin and John so happy for them. Amanda and Mark were great too.
    Great skating from the top three teams. Wish we had 3 spots for Worlds instead of 2.

    i haven't looked at protocols, but I suspect e/l racked up some 2nd half bonuses with those lifts....plus, there is the short program to think about.

    Looking at the protocols, now up.

    Comments from the lowest up
    - Bereswill and Young got no points for the death spiral at all. Is that where the fall was?
    - Same thing for Castelli and Shnapir's choreo spirals - one of the falls or did they not meet requirements?
    - Marley and Brubaker had loads of level 4 elements in the latter half of their program. Pretty spiffy. (Yes, I used the word "spiffy".)
    - Caydee and Jeremy got only "Double Axel + SEQ" for their Double Axel + Double Axel sequence, which hurt them.
    - Amanda and Mark got an 8.65! for that beautiful lift (7.15 + 1.50 GOE). Nice!
    - Caitlin and John actually got a slightly lower tech score than Amanda and Mark, but beat them on the PCS by a bit. They also got a 1.20 GOE on their throw triple Salchow, which is pretty cool.
