    The Picture Thread

    Relatively high rez pics from the qualies! If you have any requests for pics I will see what I can do. I don't recognize much of these skaters, so here are the pics that fancied my tickle:

    Alina Fjodorova of Latvia (8th in the round, qualified)

    Doesn't she look like a girl scout about to wash some dishes?

    Alina Milevskaia of Ukraine (16th in the round, did not qualify)

    +1 for wink during slide spiral

    Karina Uzurova and Llias Ali of Kazakhstan (7th in the round, qualified)

    I dub that move the gynoblade.

    Nikola Visnova and Lukas Csolley of Slovakia (second in the round)

    Medieval peasant girl invents the electric blue miniskirt.

    Ryuichi Kihara of Japan (second in the round)

    He's both the prince AND the pauper!

    Ondrej Spiegl of Sweden (11th in the round, barely qualified)

    He's bleeding math formulas, to the sound of Requieum for a Dream... I don't get it.

    Hahaha! I went to the eye doctor today and immediately thought his costume reminded me of the eye chart.

    More (relatively) high rez pics!

    From the pairs short:

    Wenjing Sui and Cong Han of China (1st in SP):

    Throw 3toe

    I have never seen a figure skater smile during the aerial part of a multi-rev jump. And yet there it is! Wenjing may just be the happiest skater ever.

    Klara Kadlecova and Petr Bidar of Czech Republic (9th in SP):

    Double Twist

    I see nip! It's the stripper Harry Potter.

    Ksenia Stolbova and Fedor Klimov of Russia (3rd in SP):

    Double Twist

    I see ribs!

    Pair skating is getting sexay!

    Conclusion: Tiny ladies who love flying make for smiley pairs skaters.

    Depends on the lady. Some ladies have interesting jump or throw face:
