Does anybody know if it's true that P/B will leave Zhulin? I heard some rumours.
So unfair for Nathalie and Fabian! Despite the fall they were classier and more mature than the junior team. It's definitely a political sport. And apparently, nowadays, the French Federation has very little power compared to some others. Pernelle and Lloyd have also a very low ranking.
I find the Shibs naturally elegant and very charming. A very notable difference they exhibit is that their holds are not very close, especially nowhere near as close as Voir's. Well, nobody can hold that close and move that fast like Voir and unfortunately they also skated right after the Shibs.
The Shibs do so well with the 50's classic and classy dances but as siblings they can only go so far with romantic dances. I think they should explore drama like the Duchesneys.

LOL, it's not about "pageantry" it's about skating to the music. That is supposed to be a large part of this sport. If it stops being part of this sport then I will no longer participate in it. When you put the music at the forefront everything else becomes more difficult because you have to think about how are moving FIRST and then think about the technical elements second. Creativity is difficult too and needs to be rewarded.
Anyway, Davis/White were exceptional and it was a performance worthy of a World title. It just wasn't the best at this Worlds, IMO. Really wish they had won in 2009.
Funny, most everyone here thought D/W were overscored in the Short Dance, but I actually felt they were the best there. That's where their speed and intricacy outshone Virtue/Moir (I must slap V/M on the hand in the Short Dance for that dreadful Beilmann position they decided to have her use in the lift).
Am I the only person who missed having the Kerrs and Faiella/Scali at the competition this year?
I actually wasn't a fan of most of the FD's this year. Meh. But the Kerrs and F/S always seemed to put something out there that struck a chord with me, most every year.

Am I the only one who walks on memory lane when listening to "Let's face the music" and seeing a dance couple on the ice? But then - in choreo and style there are a lot of differences between that FD then and the one of today....
