Any idea when Yuna will be skating?
Interesting to see James/Cipres in second ahead of the Italians, and with a very good score. They seem to be making great progress this season.
The new costumes for the SP are boring. The others were weird. I think they were forced to change? Anyway, I'm going tomorrow. Hope it'll be fun.
I worry that they may get a costume violation for her costume not covering enough of her body?
We all know Yuna will win this easily, but sadly there's nobody here who can give her a challenge.
Aliona and Robin were amazing, love this couple! Everything was working for them, the jumps,
spins, lifts and their connection to the music and each other I thought was spot on.
I am glad they changed their costumes, huge improvement.
Here is an article from Icenetwork.
I just saw that gachinski dropped out and that junior men was swept by russia
ETA: looking at the IN story, I see Robin doesn't mince words about the minimum score rule:
I agree. The idea itself is sound, but there should be some mechanism in place for top skaters who took a hiatus. I thought so last year when it was Plushenko not having a score for Euros, too - though in that case his federation was able to get him an exemption."For Germany and Dortmund, it is great that Yu-Na Kim comes to compete here for the first time," Szolkowy said. "However, it is stupid that top skaters like her who pause for a year have to go to a small competition first to gain a minimum score before being allowed to go to worlds again."
