    Music: The Soul of Flamenco by Michael Laucke

    1st after SP

    4STh - slightly twofooted
    3T+2T+2T - not much speed, but landed
    4FTw - nice! Perhaps a bit crashy in replay
    BoDs
    FCCoSp - ok unison
    ChSp - nice position
    2A
    3FTh - high and long!
    Li
    PCoSp
    Li
    Li

    Very strong performance!

    Score: 135.08, new PB, total 201.83, new PB and into 1st!

    Wow, over 200 pts. This should take gold...

    Sui/Han just pretty much won. Very athletic and modern!

    Sui & Han
    China

    Apparently The Soul of Flamenco is a Chinese soul

    toe steppy running

    back crossovers
    huge throw with a 2foot landing

    Jumps all over the lot out of synch

    3/2/2/

    Twist. She lands hard on his shoulder.

    ugly death spiral entrance we have these days with dead stop
    exit

    spins mostly in synch, not grat

    choreographic spiral, she's in a pearl position, he in a more tranditional position

    2A good

    Now that was one good throw, but an odd hopping entry for COP

    lift he's in a spread eagle, she biellmann

    pair spin
    this has a cool position to start but is dying a bit into a Dmitriev and partners charlotte spin

    lift
    lots of changes for her

    lift again
    not as nice lifts as E&L, but great speed into changing positons

    No doubt that will lead

    I'm not sure whether the twist or one of the throws was a quad.

    Could have been, but I'm watching in a tiny window so I can type.

    S/H seemed a bit muted to me today, but that was a pretty good skate given the circumstances.

    Also it just me, or did Sui almost slip a bit on the first lift? With all the weird lift positions these days, sometimes it's difficult to tell....

    I really enjoyed tat program and they still looked like they had some energy at the end. Great music for them too.

    GOLD FOR SOCHI, GOLD FOR SOCHI, GOLD FOR SOCHI, BRAVO, BRAVO, BRAVO!!!!

    They didn't even need the quad throw, and yet they did it! And she's such a natural actress, makes me wonder if she takes lessons, or is just a natural like Oksana Baiul.

    I love this pair to pieces. Their energy level and athleticism are unmatched and this program and music are gorgeous. I especially like it for giving him a chance to shine. He looks like a Mexican of Indian descent from a distance. Bravo!!!

    love the newest big stars of China! so great...

    and Peter was pretty much peeing himself with joy over them...

    and yeah cranky peter can be entertaining... unless it's during mens and they all do the butt spin... his rant gets pretty tiresome after 15+ skaters lol

    As much as I love T/T I simply can't watch them. She is unable to land a solo triple jump and it's heartbreaking because otherwise she is a gorgeous skater and they are such an interesting team...

    Takahashi/Tran are probably the prettiest pairs skaters in the competition, but those jumps! Somebody send them to Alexei Mishin, or give them a Dartfish or something.....
