It's starting now
The audience in Megasport took a toilet/snack break I see.
Tiffany VISE / Don BALDWIN (USA)
Music: Legends of the Fall (soundtrack) by James Horner
Time to Say Goodbye
3T+2T+2T - he doubled the 3T
3S - she doubled
3FTh - forward, hand down
3LoTh - fall
FCCoSp - ok unison, hard to tell when they're mirrors
97.24 (SB), total 143.15 (SB) and into 1st
You know, at some point it's time to call it quits, and I think Vise/Baldwin, at ages 26 and 35, need to do so. I just don't see this pair ever being able to improve, given their inherent individual limitations and also age. I would not be surprised to see them retire after this season, maybe nationals if they don't podium.
Nice program from Vise/Baldwin. To bad their technical abilities are not strong. I liked it.
V/B didn't want to end on the really bad note of last year's Nationals, and they enjoy skating together. If they still enjoy it, then I hope they skate as much as they want.
Nicole DELLA MONICA / Matteo GUARISE (ITA)
Music: The Phantom of the Opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber
FCCoSp - ok unison
2A+2T+SEQ - he twofoots/stumbles on 2A
ChSq - they both stumbles, he falls
3STh - she holds on
The camerawork makes me dizzy...
92.28 (PB), total 142.53 (PB) and into 2nd
Anastasia MARTIUSHEVA / Alexei ROGONOV (RUS)
Music: The Mission (soundtrack) by Ennio Morricone
3S - finally!
2A+2A+SEQ - she falls on 1st 2A and doesn't complete seq
3FTw - a bit shaky exit
CCoSp - unison off at the end
3FTh - fall
PCoSp - a bit slow
She's got wonderful stretch in the lifts, too bad she can land the jumps more consistently
M/R is so beautiful, I hope they will find way to be consistance on tech!
Martiusheva always looks like she doesn't enjoy being out there. Is this just her persona, or extreme nerves, or what? They're a cute couple, not quite soup yet.
2 falls, so frustrating
Nastya looks like a Russian Snow Maiden "Snegurochka". Such a natural beauty. Congrats with Personal Best!
