I just can't get into M/MT at all. They look really rough. She looks like a cracked out Caydee Denney circa her trailer trash day.
yes, they do have all of that dancing qualities. They look really good together. their little hops here and there are just pure joy.
Takahashi/Tran have better lifts, stronger choreography, and better carriage than either Moore-Towers/Moscovitch or Duhamel/Radford. I also think they happen to be a better match than D/R as well (Mt/M are well matched to each other). Both Canadian teams are stronger jumpers, of course, and Mt/M have a beautiful program this year, one of my favourites, but PCS wise they should be between 0.5 and 1 point behind T/T on each component, imo.
Finally a good performance from K/S in this beautiful LP! Not clean, but... The best they have done so far with that material. This program is a masterpiece and hides their weaknesses very well. Or they stop matter, when K/S skate it without major mistakes. I am not their fan, but this one always touches me.
Just go and work on the SP, because it is horrible.
S/S LP is possibly great stuff, but it must grow on me (it is the first time I have seen it). Maybe mistakes did not help me to receive it well.
Nice costumes though, for a change! Mistake in the lift aside, they should work on the lifts in general. They are not very attractive. IMO, even some lower ranked pairs come up with more interesting positions. S/S are so innovative. But it does not show in lifts.
A word about Italians. The beginning of the program was nice, but later the music gets too monotonous. They should break this program into 2 music pieces.
I do see K&S developing, both technically and artistically through the years. And for a pair, facing so many difficulties (they don't match each other that well, both are old and have lots of injuries), they have done an amazing job.
After all, there's an example of both Chinese veteran pairs "trying to survive out there" in 2010 season, and both did well, very well, I would say, beating stronger technically and innovative Germans both at Olympics and worlds that year. So there is nothing impossible for K&S.
congratualtions to all medalist good job.
S/S program is so beautiful even with mistakes; it made me watch the movie!
K/S have a nice program as well , and i liked her COC short program dress much much better!
are judges dropping my fav I/M? She is such a joy to watch and i love their new lp; I want them to go to euros this season and i dont see it happening
I am still scratching my head how K/S could win 2 world medals while C/O was never able to crack into top 8.
