    I don't think anyone, not even T/T, expected them to actually medal.

    3rd place for T/T!!! Yay! And Narumi's so cute. How can she be so refined on the ice and have that kid-like reaction afterwards?

    so exciting.....they are both so cute but her reaction is priceless! loved it! Way to bring it when it counts!

    M/T should get a special prize for a beautiful LP that they nailed when it really counted....many, they almost came back all the way to first....so close. Personally, I think with the SP, S/S deserved to win, however, hands down M/T 'killed' the LP and really are likely to be on top next year and thereafter. Congrats to ahem today and all the skaters!

    I think so (that they are the first Japanese pair to podium at world)!

    Has someone record their reaction, I can't wait for replay.

    I wonder if this might push Tran to give up citizenship? Such a hard decision. First pairs medal for the country should give these two a huge career boost in figure skating crazy Japan.

    I agree it was a shot up in the air, which is a sign of celebration

    I think they knew who the favorites were even before the competition began.

    I really, really hope this convinces the Japanese federation and media to invest and promote pairs more. With so many (too many) strong single skaters in the country, it's ripe for some good pairs to develop.

    I don't disagree with it being close between V/T and S/S in the fp, but it wasn't according to the judges. Yes, S/S showed nerves but they overcame nerves to hit everything and that is a difficult program. V/T do classic style/ performance with panache, but are not the second coming, or are they? I like V/T and S/S, but don't like the way S/S were so low-balled for this performance/ boundary-pushing program despite hitting everything. Their IN, SS, PCS, and most definitely their CH should have been scored higher. Truthfully IMO, V/T were slightly over-scored to make sure they pulled up to challenge S/S.

    The judges are likely just as surprised S/S won by .11 -- S/S keep upping the ante and don't rest on their laurels; other pairs learn from watching them, and emulate some of their moves and technique, but still the Russians are boss, which tells us that S/S hope for a gold Olympic medal appears to be dashed again, especially in Sochi, Russia -- and it's still 2 years away. Of course S/S age is also going against them for two years out.

    Happy for Mervin and Narumi! Great competition for them. They finally show what they can do and triumph over their young rivals, S/H.

    It's V/T now! M/T was Maxim's old partner..

    But I'm so happy for T/T!!
