    Tastes differ in figure skating, especially in pairs. Years ago, I used to see S&S's coach, Ingo Steuer, skating with Mandy Wotzel. I never really cared for watching them, although they had clockwork precision. S&S have great technical precision, also, and I respect them for that. However, this "Pink Panther" programme is just too cutesy for me. It's a matter of differing aesthetics. Ouch. just saw Tong make a mistake. I guess it's a sure thing that S&S will win.

    P/T lost the Gold medal, but overall they gave a good effort. Beautiful program but in my honestopinion, Liebestraum belongs to the likes of Mishkutenok/Dmitriev.

    Shame. This year, I preferred Pang and Tong's program to the Germans. Oh well.

    I didn't say that I am a fan of the Pink Panther program. I reacted to the criticism of their costume, which I find very appropiate for the program. The strong colours are cartoonish, but very suiting imo.

    It will interesting to see how V/T perform. With a clean performance, they are guaranteed at least a silver medal.

    Well those two mistake pretty much cost them 6-7 points!! But I think even if they are super clean, P/T will be still behind S/S because they do a eassier side by side jumps and throw...

    That is right. The 2 sets of sbs 3t's for the germans give them a very comfy cushion.

    Ah, I see. I hadn't relized the differences at first. I'm not a skater, so I still struggle with identifying some jumps on the spot I guess the numbers make sense then.
