Pairs LP, Saturday 11/26/11, 6:45AM EST
Here we go, enjoy!
Nice skate by this young RUS pair, though they did clash a bit upon the landing of the split triple twist, also she singled her sbs jump.
I really like this young Canadian pair and this program, too bad about the two falls, but they have a lot of potential imho.
I missed the beginning of this young American Pairs' program b/c my 'puter crashed, but I got to see everything else. I enjoy their sbs spins, they're better than D&S in that regards, faster, synchronized, and closer together. Too bad about the fall on the throw jump.
ps: also they honestly look like brother & sister, what a match!
5 minute warmup for next group, break time!

Strange coloured tights this girl is wearing.
This is rather disastrous, right from the weird beginning and that dropping of her.

OMG, when he dropped her at the end during that lift I almost faineted, verdad!
Okay, back to the beginning, just when I was admiring their likeness to a Meissen figurine entitled "Winter", he drops her at the very beginning when they're basically doing nothing, then they came back with strong jumps, then another fall during the throw jump, and finally that last one!!!!
Seriously, I don't think he's the guy for her...
ps: no wonder she gives him those "looks".... (8^O Now I understand.
This Italian pair started out very strong with that fabulous sbs 3/2/2 combo., but then petered out as the program continued, especially her singling that one sbs jump. However, I like their sbs spins. Donlan & Speroff need to attain sbs spins like that imho.
ps: back to that RUS pair that skated before them, I enjoyed their low hydroplane synchronized move, reminiscent of B&K at the 1998 Olympics.
And they go into first! eta. The Russians that is.
Now the Italians go ahead of them and have won themselves a medal.
Now the big guns.
K/S are skating with a lightness to go with the music. Beautiful.
Near flawless. Everythign done with ease and elegance. A mesmerizing performance.

ps: can't wait to watch this over again on replay. And they almost break 200!
Wow! Kavaguti/Smirnov show how it is done. That was fantastic!
Does anybody have a working British Eurosport link ? The Hahasport one shows me nothing and I only have a belated Russian one so I can't follow it with you guys.
