    Amanda EVORA / Mark LADWIG (USA)

    Music: Daphnis and Chloe by Maurice Ravel
    Reverie by Claude Debussy

    5th after SP

    3FTw
    3T - she twofoots (perhaps UR), both step out
    3LzTh - she falls
    2A+1Lo+2S - she singles first 2A, I think
    BoDs
    CCoSp - good unison
    3LoTh
    Li - a bit shaky
    ChSp
    Li - not secure as usual
    PCoSp
    Li - he almost drops her on setdown

    Score: 107.24, total 167.99 and into 2nd

    Doing this stuff at altitude has to be worst in pairs.

    Lawrence & Swiegers

    158.66 into 2nd (rats, I preferred them)


    Evora and Ladwig (fingers and toes crossed)

    3tw Ok

    sweeping moves into 3t, both stepout

    Amanda down on the throw flip

    2a sequence one might have done 1a

    Great dance lift as a transition

    death spiral good one

    spins
    really good unison
    really really good

    Beautiful throw 3Loop!!!

    LIFTS so secure on the back spiral for Mark, smooth on the exit

    choreo spiral

    Amazing flip up entrance lift wild cartwheel out into pair spin

    Wow they are not sucking wind at the end like the others

    lift from a lunge and down to end; just a hair sloppy at the landing

    Sigh* Evora/Ladwig at least has the most beautiful lifts so far.

    Don't mean to be mean, but I'm very glad they're not going to Worlds.

    Great lifts, though, and lovely second throw.

    BRAVO!!!! BRAVO!!!

    This music always brightens my soul & puts a smile on thy face. Sarah Hughes Olympic LP music combined with G&G's exhibition skate music, one cannot go wrong, and therefore Evora & Ladwig to me have the best music & choreographed program of everybody, including my favorite lifts of anybody in the world.

    I hope Mark and Amanda didn't lose any levels on the last lift 'cause he bent his elbow a bit too soon.

    I predict Sui/Han, Denney/Coughlin, and Marley/Brubaker for the podium, not sure what order.

    Back in the dim distant past, a US team called, I think, the Fotheringill's called it a "foot-on" AFAIR. Not a sexy name, but still pretty cool

    They were skating about the same time as Cynthia & Ronald Kaufman

    I'm glad my fav pair, Donlan & Gretchen, didn't skate here, too terrifying with the altitude problems.

    So far so good, crossing my fingers that the final group makes it through without major incident as well.

    I wish they were zeroing in on the arena vid screen to show the mini doc they are playing on Tai and Randy.

    Is it just me, or does Peter sound as frustrated as ever with American Pairs skaters? He's close to calling everyone lazy and undeserving "If you think you're working hard enough, you gotta work 10 times harder."

    And just now "They're all out there saying I want to skate my best, the only one I am competing against is myself. BALONEY." Wow... ok, someone give Peter some decaf or something (though I completely agree with him). Sometimes I think the USFSA has overtrained their skaters in the PR department.
