An honestly even if she falls, if they nail the free that should be enough for a medal.

    I thought Inoue/Baldwin landed the first 3ATh. They landed it at the 2006 Olympics.

    Inoue and Baldwin are the first to do the throw 3A at both Olympics (in the SP) and Worlds (in the LP) both in 2006. Rena did reach for the ice on the landing at Worlds, but really close inspection of replay showed that she did not touch down IIRC. They got a slightly negative GOE for the element but full base value for the element. I/B placed 4th at 2006 Worlds largely due to the fact that John landed his 3T for once and Rena landed the throw 3A. They were 3rd in the LP. Still the highest placement at worlds for a US pair in the last nine years since Ina and Zimmerman's 2002 bronze.

    Their throw 3axel was superb! I soooo wanted them to go to the 2010 Olympics, after having skated superbly at Nationals that year, and also Rena landing that FAB throw 3A!

    By the way, thanks for the info. about their being the highest placing American Pairs Team in 9 years, didn't know that, thanks again!

    And they had the HIGHEST TES at 2006 Worlds LP, too. Ina and John are special.
    It's annoying that S/S think they would be the first to land a 3A at an international competition. Learn your own sport history!

    Oh no! I too hope they will manage to do well, the #1 thing I would like to see in the pairs discipline this year is a perfectly clean performance of their masterpiece LP Pina. For everything else, let the chips fall where they may.

    In her defense, if they do land one and medal at worlds; they would be the first to medal (possible win gold) with one, so she she is correct. Maybe that's what she meant and it got lost in translation. I wouldn't get too upset about it especially if they don't even try it.

    Odd bit of trivia: US pairs have had their highest pairs placement of each of the last four Olympic cycles at the post Olympics World Championship. I mention this with full knowledge of the fact that those WCs were almost always weaker fields.

    1998-Meno and Sand 2nd
    2002-Ina and Zimmerman 3rd
    2006-Inoue and Baldwin 4th
    2010-Denney and Barrett 7th

    Prior to that American pairs had routinely had their best showings in each Olympic cycle in non Olympic years going back to 1980

    1979-Babilonia and Gardner 1st (7th in 1980;Carruthers)
    1982- Carruthers 3rd (10th in 1984; Miller and Fauver)
    1987-Watson and Oppegard 3rd (4th in 1988; Wachsman and Waggoner)
    1991-Kuchiki and Sand 3rd (7th in 1992; Urbanski and Marval)
    1993-Meno and Sand 5th (6th in 1994; Meno and Sand)
