How exciting that T/T will skate last. I hope they are up to it!
V/T in 8th and K/S in 11th, thats so strange to see. How with just one fall you end up so low..And their pcs are not very good.
At least I am happy for S/S, I think they will win!
Well, I may as well throw every prediction I made into the trash. :D Didn't expect that. I'm thrilled for the Germans, as I was hoping they would win, and I love P/T as well. It's a shame for the Russians, but I guess given the fact that it's such a new partnership the nerves were bound to get them eventually. They could still move up. I'm so surprised about Takahashi/Tran, who are an absolutely stunning team. I'm really happy that they were able to adress some of their technical issues. And a really good for Duhamel/Radford to end up 5th, just a couple of points behind the Japanese. It's still anyones game for bronze.
i wishes for the LP
S/S are skating a lovely pina program ... with a 3Ath... ingo said they havn t trained the 3FlipTh
D/R skate like nationals and medal too
T/T + B/H skate like today
Sui/Han do not medal
V/T + K/S skate without falls ...
Well, at least it seems that Pairs still remains the most more or less objectively judged FS event. You fall- you get yours for that.
What a bizarre competition, none of the top teams really delivered. Very disappointing for the Russians, was really enjoying K/S then they fell and don't even make the top 10. I like V/T but not a huge fan of their short, a fall on the death spiral and the throw was weird she seemed to delay for ages not sure what they were doing. Enjoyed B/L, the music suits there style, she is one tough competitor the look she gave him at the end!
I really like T/T but I think she is very unreliable on the sbs and throws but today she nailed everything definitely my favourite performance, hopefully they can handle the pressure of skating last. I thought the Canadians were overmarked in 5th but it does show if you load in the technichal elements you will do well. D/C did skate lights out but while everything was great technically it felt empty and flat just going from element to element.
S/S and P/T were not at their best but probably done enought to be first and second. Not a huge fan of S/H but they weren't marked as high as I would have expected, they are quick to the point that they seem to be rushing through everything. It probably is a battle now for bronze, I could easily see V/T pulling up from 8points. I will be disappointed if K/S do not get a medal with their Clare de lune but they are to far back to reach the podium.
Watched the highlights on Eurosport, they showed the last 11 couples, everyone for D/C onwards which wasn't to bad. Good commentary from Chris and Simon
