Really hope that M/R have a good skate. It will be interesting to see if B/L have got over her recent injury problems. Other than I guess it is V/T to lose, with a good skate D/C can nail their GP final spot.
I can't watch M/R , im expecting a fall
ETA: they didnt fall
only a 2S by her :-(
but boring music.... have to improve a lot...
dlM/G only 50,25 in 2nd????????
3S, 3Sth, only 2FTw
and matteo is soooo hot :-) http://www.google.de/search?hl=de&q=...M6WN4gSzy4DwDw
double twist and poor PCS fom the italians
45,91 inconsistant as usual
last group on th ice...
Don't like any of these music choices of the pairs so far. Ugh. Russians didn't look like they wanted to be out there, Italians looked nice and athletic and confident, but not able to get the TES or PCS points yet, Americans not only inconsistent, but boring. Let's hope next group is better; so far this pairs competition is a bit flat.
(same music as D/R last year)
good elements (her 3T ..well), but i don t like their skating style
he seems to be off music
Coughlin's skating skills leave a lot to be desired.
L/S 51,86.. that s poor
why can t this girl land a 3T??? every time the same mistake
crashy landing on the 3LTw.....i don t like her lift possition, too
Yeah D/C aren't my cup of tea but they are strong and have mostly decent tricks. And land their SBS jumps. Canadians are pretty but fall on a jump (her) and crashy twist (scary in fact) won't get you places.
Never been a B/L fan, and Bazarova looks so frail, but this program is really nice for them.
On a different note, is anybody getting tired of the mirror skating requirement in the pairs' SP's? Wish ISU would ditch this--I don't see what it's supposed to prove.
B/L 66,02 ... that s sooooo redicilous...
she was a little bit scared because of her injury ...
i don t like their programmes
they are every year boooooring!!!!
