Tatiana and Maxom are really consistent, I love their skating
2nd for them! They look absolutely thrilled in the kiss and cry. Good for them.
I got so tense, waiting to see how Tatiana and Maxim would do. lol Now I am smiling. More and more broadly. :D:D:D
I just now woke up and watched V/T's performance live. I'll have to watch the rest of the top teams later. I thought this pair should have won the SP but their LP isn't as effective. They need a better program to match the WONDERFUL ability and lines they have.
I also am giving a Stading "O" for Tatiana and Maxim. Yeah baby! They suffered enough in the last 4 years with all those failures.
Okay, one more question: Ukranian men, what are you doing?
A Well deserve Silver for V/T!! They are the only team that match S/S TES in term of base value. I like their performance better than S/S. It looks more powerful!! If wouldn't for a little turnout on the 3T from Maxim, they can almost match S/S score.
I believed S/S were miles away technically compared to V/T...loved V/T but they were over-scored.
Watching V/T I could not help but feel that they can do more and harder. So much power and potential.
Its been a year (2010 Olympics) since I have been this excited to watched the pairs competition. I am just impressed at the progress and success of V/T within their first season. Really looking forward to next season and the upcoming years with this team. They will play a substantial part in bringing Russia a medal in Sochi.
Congrats Aliona/Robin!! You guys made me love pairs skating again XD
We are in Russia after all.... even the judges can be influenced by this audience. (This was my comment to the overscoring for V&T which I second - only I was too slow in typing....)
And don't get me wrong, they were good in many aspects, but not in all. And the other Russian pair (B&L) has the edge in my eyes - better lines, elegance instead of strength. I have to admit, I'd rather root for Bazarova
