V/T were amazing technically and deserve to be in first but my heart belongs to Robin and Aliona, I just love their SP.

S/S should really consider to throw away the idea of the 3axel and try the 4flip instead...Tonight the flip was SO high that there was enough space not only for 4 turns but for 5!! No wonder she couldn't control the landing.! It was HUGE!
Hello demarinis5, that's nice of you to say :-) I also like their programmes and they are making progress again and again ... they try something new on the ice, which I think is great :-)
Tripping on the Podium
K/S Please kick some butt in the LP!!! Please!!!
How funny to see the "bowing (kudo)" icon :-)))
K/S really improved this season, I think. They deserve a medal but I think if they won a medal it would be the bronze ...
That shouldn't be a problem thy are only 2 pts out and their LP is much better that the Zhangs. K/S lost ton of points on her 2T, they may have well not done it at all. Low levels on some other elements as well.
I agree. K/S have wonderful long program, in my view much better than V/T. Tomorrow may be an interesting day.
Men are next and my favourite is, of course, Daisuke :-))) Gambatte ne! :-)
I agree and with the mistake they are not far at all. Plus their long program is more difficult I think.

D/R's base value is sick - of the five leveled elements, they had four level fours, and their twist was level three.
S/S had a mistake so V/T probably deserve first place but if tomorrow V/T outscore S/S in PCS I will stop watching pairs
D/R - most improved ?
I was truly impressed with this pair and I think their improvement over the past 12 months is awesome! They seem to skate with great determination and heart.
I was also very impressed with the Canadian pair that came 2nd in the Juniors ? does anybody know if they can/will compete in Seniors at Canadian Nationals?
