Just got off teleconference with Meryl & Charlie. They said the would be leaving for Sochi in a couple of days and are looking forward to a great competition in the Final and said that even though the bar is raised (competitively) in Sochi, they are obviously looking for a win. They were pleased with the changes they made in their FD from SA in NHK Trophy. Addition of the bells in the middle of the FD was a collaborative effort while they were looking at pulling the music together. Charlie cuts the music initially as he likes to adjust the music on the fly. He sends the music it to a professional to finish it off. They hope to improve their levels in both the Polka and their step sequences to receive all level 4s in Sochi.
Thanks for the info! This is going to be so exciting.
