    I'll be doing a live play by play and commentary at http://icemusings.blogspot.com/2011/...ree-skate.html for anyone without a feed. Hope the skating is cleaner today!

    I'm doing a LIVE play-by-play as well http://backstagebarbie.blogspot.com/...kating_19.html Do you think we'll have a surprise medalist like Song in China or Miner at NHK?

    Thanks for reading! Please comment any time. I love to know what other people think of the programs!

    The first warmup group is on the ice and we'll be underway here shortly.

    I love the opening music to MASSIVE ATTACK! However, the whole time I kept picturing Oksana Baiul skating to it, hers to "Safe From Harm" was the best ever, bar none.

    The jumps that Chafik landed (aka lutz & axel) were gorgeous, excellent height & depth, Joubert would be proud!

    Rough skate by Romain, but I applaud him for going for the quad, and his attitude on the upright spin has to be one of the finest I've ever been priviledged to see.

    But the whole time I was picturing A&P skating to this, their iconic program, and was wondering if Gwendal loaned Romain his outfit, then dyed it purple.

    But Chafik struggled with so many of his jumps. And Ponsart was worse (?), barely getting off the ground in some of them. A disappointing skate for him, I'm sure. Neither had interesting programs. Ponsart wasted the Balcony Scene. (Although what's he going to do with it all by himself, lol?) They sure looked good, though.

    ETA: Their total scores are .06 apart! Chafik is about 3.5 pts higher in the FS.
