    Preliminary round ice dance

    This segment is completed and was totally...ignored:

    The good news for the Canadian fans is that Weaver / Poje managed to have their best FD score of the season, besting their previous results.
    Defeating the germans is comforting for a potential top 10 finish for them.

    I'll point out that Z/G were only four points behind W/P - and that was thanks to their higher levels (BV of 40 points compared to W/P's 38.5) and that's WITH a fall for Z/G.

    I expect W/P PCS to be higher in the actual competition. They skated clean and that will give them confidence for the competition

    Good for W/P! I was hoping that they'd win the qualifier. That should boost their confidence going into the actual competition. I really do think that they can finish in the top ten...they were 5th at the GP final, after all...the only real difference between then and now is the addition of V/M, so I think that W/P can definately pull it off.

    Finally, my internet connection is fast enough for also posting at GS Forum:

    What a great start into the competition for W/P and Z/G, and both with chances to do even better on Saturday. Somehow, I have a soft spot for skaters who do not get the full support from their federation and/or the judges.

    I've just read that W/P had a mistake on a lift (the one that was scored as level 2). Apparently Kaitlyn was supposed to grab her blade, but she missed. I guess that explains why they didn't win by a greater margin. A mistake like that probably cost them several points. The Germas' mistake was on a transition, not an element, so they only lost the one point.

    Thanks for the results.
    I'm glad the Spanish team qualified! I hope we get a free feed online where we can see all the competitors.
    *keeping my fingers crossed*

    She did that at Skate America as well. I do think a cleaner skate would score 92ish, which is pretty great for them.
