    FIRST WARMUP GROUP
    Sara Hurtado & Adria Diaz ESP
    SP Eighth place 45.71
    FD Tristan and Isolde by Maxime Rodriguez
    That's an odd costume. She has a sequinned kippah on, and brown bloomers under a skirt??? Nope it's a two toned layered brown skirt that sometimes looks like she has bloomers. And a teal blue sash belt.
    And a blue vee on the top of the costume.
    Angsty posing
    She does a camel spin he catches her
    they skate off ina neat cartwheel lift and she sommersaults over his shoulder
    step sequence
    Nice pair spin. Decent rotational speed
    She goes down he sits on her knees, they both lean back. Wild!
    She stands on his foot in a biellman
    Rotational lift.
    He falls in the 1st twizzle set (leg out) He tripped over the toepick It's an ambitious set of twizzle positions they planned...a little too hard for them.
    Steps
    Another lift to end.
    There was some interesting stuff in that lift.

    Oh no, he took a tumble on the un-nice ice of Nice. (I just realized we're not in Paris.)

    Their costumes are miles better than yesterday, but the low waist on her dress makes her look thicker around the middle and she doesn't need that.

    I don't like the way her back bounces on the ice when they're going into that cantilever (?) position where they're both leaning all the way back. First, it's too obvious, and second, Ouch.

    There's a Russian stream, but I know it doesn't work for some locations.

    Was hoping for better for Sara and Adria better luck next time...

    Kristina Gorshkova & Vitali Butikov RUS
    SP Seventh place 48.77
    FD Tango Selection
    She has on half a military coat in dark blue with an over colorful tango dress underneath
    Very messy complex lift
    Rotational lift
    steps into twizzles one foot 3 sets, she petered out on the 2nd set.
    They run into a lunge
    bandoneon going now
    steps in hold
    Foot shaking to be tango
    an interesting rotational lift with her at a kind of angle
    Tangoish step
    I think this is a step sequence now. It has the requisite different types of turns.
    Skating straight ahead with her head on his shoulder
    a small lift to the end?
    Whoops they keep going? Why?
    Another lift to end.

    69.71

    Total 118.48 into 1st

    G/B's dance just seemed endless. Talk about a pasted smile - and he looks like his teeth are gritted.

    SP Sixth Place 50.71
    FD Libertango by Astor Piazzolla

    Rats. Another Tango.
    He's in black, mostly, with suspenders I think appliqued on.
    She has a black skirt and a top with lots of red and black geometric cut outs and sleeves. She has her hair in a long braid.
    Twizzles. He looks faster.
    Steps with lunges and a little skippy jump
    They are back to back kind of neat
    Gymnastic, long, lift with lots of changes
    Tango posing
    Slow tangoing in hold steps
    He lifts her with her legs around his neck and then spins her like clock hands to 6 o'clock postions
    pair spin
    Lift, standard one with girls foot to her head.
    More steps
    Really, this is a recognizable tango..a good thing
    Very Linichuk, who AFAIR is their choreographer.
    To end.

    I love this Chinese team. They seem so comfortable in this idiom, and skate so well together. Some awkward lifts, but on the whole very enjoyable. And they're so good-looking. Him especially. He smolders. Never heard of them until this event.

    Oh, OK, Linichuk. That explains it. Good for them.

    Madison and Evan: who decided it was a good idea to butcher Chopin like that?
