    Thank you Mao88. I've been desperate to see these videos.

    In the first video, it seems the French commentators are saying (but I'm not fluent in the language) that Sinitsina/Zhiganshin and Papadakis/Cizeron suffered a collision before the free dance.

    And more thanks from me.. especially since CBC was too curmudgeonly to show P/C..
    I completely take back my former lukewarm feelings for Stepanova & Bukin. I really liked them here ( though still not their material )

    And if I can further jump on Kustarova ...the boot strap was not the only costume malfunction for Y/M . It always annoys me when I have to watch a female skater with a costume that rides up so badly at the crotch. There's simply no excuse for it. So many teams manage to avoid the problem, it can only be put down to carelessness at best...and I don't want to think about what the reason could be at worst. Can these young women be afforded a little dignity , please ? This is the coaches' responsibility. Shame on you , team Kustarova . I like this young team and hope not to see this repeated.

    Overall , a good showing for my three teams to watch A/E , P/C and O/W , particularly for A/E

    I just finished watching the cbc broadcast. I especially like Aldridge/Eaton nd Y/M. I actually preferred Y/M to the other two Russian teams who finished higher.

    Yanovskaia isn't the first Russian lady to sport an egregious wedgie. Many Russian ice dancers and pair skaters skate perform with most of their butts hanging out. Russian hosiery companies must make their tights to fit that way.

    chuckm..yeah , I'm well aware of the Russian wedgie problem , but this was one of the most egregious examples . I'm trying to find a reasonably polite way of putting this ( maybe there isn't a way ) , but in the slow-mo replay of one of their lifts , as the skaters moved into a front view or full crotch shot position ..that part of her costume had all but disappeared. Not a thing any mother would want to see happen to her 15 yr. old daughter.

    ETA : Surely this should be a costume deduction ?

    Well, there is the gynecological lift penalty--if you can see that part of the costume disappearing, I would think the lift would qualify.

    Yikes, you are right! It's fully apparent that the lady has not had a Brazilian wax.....
