    Decent performance, but all the pairs really need to work on their leg extension.

    I agree with what Spun Silver said last night about the announcer, "let me hear you ladies & gentlemen". Feels like I'm at the carnivale.

    Zhang and Wang are the Chinese pewter? Bronze medalists? The Chinese pairs program sure has gone downhill.

    Zhang & Wang

    Worst so far. And pretty much transitionless.
    A little heavy on the twist landing
    messup on the side by sides. I'm not sure if one of them doubled

    very two footed throw double loop with her leaning forward

    48.04


    nice Good death spiral though

    Thank you for this valuable piece of information; just as I said "PAIR GIRLS & GUYS ARE TOUGH"!!!!

    Now to hunt for Univ. Sports and catch up on TV as I thought there would be 68 pairs and i could get away with sneaking in late...

    Darn the time change too. Poor skaters. It's inconsiderate to change the time at the last minute.

    Go, Takahashi and Tran!

    What was up with the organ in that arrangement of the Aranjuez adagio that Dong and Wu used? And the screeching violin. That piece of music is a crime against nature.

    and I've learnt what a cougar is; except from a beautiful animal...

    I too wonder were Zhang/Zhang are? Injuried I suppose?

    Wait to see Sui/Han's quad twist.

    Nadine, Pairs girls are of tiny bodies, biggest guts. Pairs guy are strong physically to be good chick hoisters but also need mental strength to deal with guilt and trauma of mishaps.

    Sigh, computer conked out again. :( But I recall this rough & tough looking pair earlier this season at some GP? I'm waiting for that one pair where the little girl has lots of pizzazz!

    Replay shows she fell on the throw jump, but I was watching him, he flew off the ice as well.

    Lots of problems
    off unison on the triples
    3tw high, but not best landing
    3 loop throw, and she had problems with the landing and put both hands down and rotated out.

    49.52 SB

    Last warmup group coming out.
