    LOL, just read that at the medal ceremony, the 3rd-place ice dancers were given the gold medals instead of bronze by mistake.

    I should have added above that the medal glitch seems to have been rectified quickly. Not clear whether it involved one or both members of the bronze couple:

    #cfsc13 Awesome! Third place dance finisher got to wear the gold medal for a few seconds!

    Dear rep whom gave the Bronze finishers the Gold medals at the podium ceremony, you are treading on thin ice... #CFSC13

    Nationals judging is just ridiculously inflated to the point where it just can't be treated seriously at all. ;P

    It sounds like the tech panel were out partying last night.

    What were the deductions for?
    The two I'm seeing are for extended lifts "long Lift"
    What was the other one that they deleted for, if anyone knows?

    Given it's Nationals the low levels definitely must have been deserved.

    I mean we're talking about the panel who gave Lv4s left right and centre in the SD even though very few top teams managed to achieve that so far this season.

    So I guess Orford/Williams will go to 4CC now?

    I don't know--what's Skate Canada's policy, especially about 3rd spots?
    And do V&M want to go to 4CC's?
    That would be the 2 questions for me

    This panel gave P&G all level 4 except for two level 3 steps,
    Orford & Williams and Ralph & Hill all level 4 except level 2 & 3 steps

    Paul & Islam lost a level on the spin as well as the fall & the level 1 step resulting. Also level 3 on the other step.

    That's all rather generous, but not crazy.

    Do you suppose someone warned the tech panel they were a little too kind yesterday?

    I'd expect Orford/Williams will go to 4CC if Weaver/Poje aren't well enough?

    Doris - I would imagine that V/M will want to go to 4CCs...

    In the day, it was very common for Canadian & American champions to skip 4cc's, especially if it was a long expensive trip (like to Japan this year) particularly as it is so close to both Nationals.

    The teams most apt to skip it were the teams who felt most secure in their positions.

    With all this ranking stuff, top teams have been going more often

    I really don't know what to expect out of 4CC's this year.

    LOL no it is Paul Poirier at Nationals. Come Worlds they will be back down to the 90 range, guaranteed.

    Do either of them tweet?

    They said in an interview post FD with Liz Manley they were looking forward to going to Japan for 4CC. I´ll say one thing for V&M and D&W is that unlike dance rivalries of the past these two are not afraid of competition.
