    Free Dance Sunday 4:45 PM EST

    TanthJLB Just finished up covering the Short Dances for @UniversalSports. What an event! I definitely don't miss skating at that altitude...
    Tanith would certainly know!

    Something to remember when viewing how the teams skate their FD's tonight. Colorado Springs is seldom a place for people's "Best Ever" unless they routinely train at altitude. And I don't think any of the dancers do.

    Order of skate for the FD:

    Warm-Up Group 1
    1 Corenne BRUHNS / Ryan VAN NATTEN MEX 10 35.93
    2 Cortney MANSOUR / Daryn ZHUNUSSOV KAZ 11 25.53
    3 Anna NAGORNYUK / Viktor KOVALENKO UZB 9 39.93

    Warm-Up Group 2
    4 Alexandra PAUL / Mitchell ISLAM CAN 6 48.52
    5 Madison HUBBELL / Zachary DONOHUE USA 5 49.93
    6 Danielle OBRIEN / Gregory MERRIMAN AUS 8 40.10
    7 Xiaoyang YU / Chen WANG CHN 7 45.42

    Warm-Up Group 3
    8 Kaitlyn WEAVER / Andrew POJE CAN 3 64.23
    9 Maia SHIBUTANI / Alex SHIBUTANI USA 4 63.38
    10 Tessa VIRTUE / Scott MOIR CAN 2 71.60
    11 Meryl DAVIS / Charlie WHITE USA 1 72.15

    The dancers are all huffing and puffing even 5/10 minutes after they get off the ice to go to the mixed zone for a brief comment. So the altitude does affect them no matter how many times they say it doesn't. Unless you train regularly in altitude, it will take a toll.

    This couple is so voidy. I'm dying, love them!

    ETA: Room for improvement, of course, but I really enjoyed them! I see a lot of potential with this pairing, and I think she also has the makings of a diva. I hope they stick together and improve over the next few seasons!

    Oh...well I knew their score wasn't going to be very high but I did think it would be more than that. :/
