    D/W overmarked in both performances. I never seen a Tango skated with less heat, passion, emotion or sexiness, while on the technical side they are hard bet but performance wise it was totally overmarked. I think it was clear from yesterdays short dance, that the judges wanted them to win. I feel very disappointed with the result.

    Very dissapointed for P/B they really threw away the bronze, will they ever be in such a position again? Has one coach ever swept the podium in Ice dance? Great achievement for S/Z

    Students from one coaching team dominating an entire podium, amazing stuff!

    Davis/White outskated everybody here by a margin. This V/M fan also has no complaints about D/W's win whatsoever.

    Oh my!! How fantastic! I just need to see the rest of D/W's performance for it to really set in. Congrats to the podium! Well done to the U.S. and Canada and Russia for having all of their teams in the top 10.

    Teams seven through 10 were close in score and not too far off from team three through six, so we could see a lot of changes taking place as for who will be fighting for the bronze. May have some new gold and silver challengers in a couple of years, too!

    I'm still a bit underwhelmed with Shibs. They are truly amazing technically but performance wise still very forgettable.

    I didn't watch this yet, but I had to spoil myself at looking at the results. I'm pretty shocked that Davis and White won, but more shocked that the Shibutanis medalled. It's also surprising to see Weaver and Poje so high.

    BOP seems to have eaten some awfully sour grapes in this Worlds.

    Off course I'm sad for Nathalie and Fabian cause their FD is lovely and they really had a chance of a medal.
    Despite the overall result, don't count Ekaterina & Dmitri and Elena & Nikita out. Next year I'm pretty sure they'll be stronger and more experienced.
    I expect P/B to retire now, unless they want to try again in their home country next year. But I highly doubt that until V/M, D/W, S/S go away, any European team can beat them. Unreachable and judges showed it with redicilously high scores and gaps. B/S and I/K and the whole Russian ice dancing is in the past, they look outdated.

    I'm surprised.
    Both team was GREAT, I couldn't see that much difference in favour of D=W.

    Shibs has a grat present and an even brighter future. Bronze at their very first World.

    V/M moved in ways D/W never will be able to. Their choreography was more creative and with the music, to my eye. D/W may have a technically more difficult program but in terms of actual dance and artistry I'd definitely have it well below.

    They looked kind of nervous out there today (who could blame them?) which affected their performance somewhat, but they delivered when it mattered most.

    Congrats to the Shibs! Everything they did was pure, precise, and unrushed. Very tai chi. Has any ice dance couple won a medal at a Worlds debut before?

    They are his staple diet. Can't go a day without it!

    I'm inspired to find a sour grapes company to invest in.

    eta. I do agree with his last post. But this is a sport and judged as a sport. Technical prowess matters most on this day.
