    Yes, the US gets 3 spots for next year.

    I know they don't have the same technical difficulty as Sui/Han, but I wish Stolbova/Klimov had won the free skate.

    The other two Russian pairs dropped from 5th & 6th in the short to 11th and 12th in the long! Tough day.

    Without seeing it, I prefer S/K to S/H, but S/H just have so much in base value that they can absorb a lot more. Even without a sequence, they still have a three-four point advantage over the rest. Right now, Sui/Han sorta represent what I dislike about COP. Oh well.

    One judge gave S/H a +2 for that very, very noticeably two-footed 4S throw. Come on.

    Final results.
    CHN 1 with only one team, so 3 spots next year
    RUS 2+7=9 3 spots next year
    CAN 5 + 6 = 11 3 spots next year
    USA 4+9 is 3 spots next year
    JPN, CZE, ITA have 2 spots (one team in top 10, but not in top 2)
    I'm not sure whether they changed that to top 12, if you have only one team, so SUI might have two spots too. Does anyone remember?

    Agreed. S/K and T/T both should be outscoring S/H on PCS

    Does anyone know why the other Chinese team withdrew? I imagine they could have finished quite high.

    ITA with everyone who stated that S/K and T/T should have gotten higher PCS. They're so much more polished and their programs are wonderfully constructed. Sui/Han are cute and energetic, but they're sloppy, have weaker basics and really lack the whole body unison that the other two teams have really developed. There is no real pairness to therm. Meh.

(I will try to refrain from thinking too much about Sui/Han's true ages and what this podium should have been...)
    Yep it does mean USA gets 3 pairs next year unless the ISU decides to change the rules.

    Yes, exactly. They get 3 pairs, as do CHN, RUS and CAN.

    Has anyone been able to track down videos of the free skate? Result was a bit closer than I expected, I thought theChinese were going to win at a canter. Again am not surprised to see them with the TES but there is no way they should be winning the PCS over S/K & T/T. The Czechs didn't perform as well as in the Europeans, but still comfortably in the Top 10. The 2nd and 3rd Russian teams didn't have a great day.

    "We are very pleased," Stolbova commented. "We did our job today. We skated clean and we are very happy with that. Now we want to develop further, to work on more difficult elements, on our programs and on everything."

    When asked about what or who inspires them, Klimov answered: "I don't have any special idols I look up to. I am inspired by our programs, our music, and our choreography."


    their program is totally inspired by Takahashi...... music edit, concept,,,, how fake they are!!

    Reply to all people who concern on S/H's PCS


    Dont know how long you have been watching FS, for what I understand, PCS doesnt really reflect the performance in one competition, it's more like an overview of the whole season.

    How stable and aggressive you are can really affect the PCS. If you do well in every competition, of cuz the PCS will build up and become big..

    If you only do well in certain competitions, of cuz it wont be as good as above one.


    So I think S/H's PCS over T/T and S'K is reasonable,,,, its a bonus for the excellence performance throughout the entire season.


    Wel done, S/H!!! and congrats

    Huh? So you basically say that S/H earned the right to have the best PCS because they skated well all season? Also, you call S/K fake because they don't have idols? Geez
