    Congratulations to Jessica and Joshua on their 4th place finish at Lombardia today!

    I'm very impressed with this pair. I'm disappointed I couldn't get to the computer early enough to see them skate today or yesterday. So far I've found every pair's FS videos from today except theirs!

    I love this pair. I just watched their Evita program from Skate Detroit in July, and it was wonderful ... until the very last element, when a lift came down. Scary. But I'm so glad to see from protocols that Jessica and Joshua didn't have problems with their lifts today. That must be a huge relief and should give them a good boost of confidence going forward.

    But I tried to figure out what I like so much about them.
    (1) I think they've taken Tamara Moskvina's mini-workshops very seriously. They're doing great unison, with their arms especially and also extending out to their fingers, as well as head movements.

    (2) Joshua has serious presence and charisma on the ice. My eye goes right to him. I find this refreshing in a pair and for me it doesn't take anything away from how Jessica is highlighted; she's also a gorgeous skater. Both their extensions seem really good to my (purely) spectator's eye.

    After doing so well at SA last year, two of their lifts came down at nationals, and Joshua in particular was devastated. But he didn't drop her! I'm so glad to see them here; I think they've been working very hard, but also with attention to elements in addition to technique.
