    This is a major understatement, to put it politely. From Plush's solo Triple Lutz not preceding by connecting steps not getting deducted to this outrageous score for V/T in an error filled routine, the European Championship ought to consider a name change to "European National Championship".

    Aliona SAVCHENKO / Robin SZOLKOWY (GER)

    Music: Flamenco Bolero by Gustavo Montesano

    3FTh - big!
    3T+3T+SEQ
    FiDs
    FCCoSp - unison off
    ChSq
    3FTw - bit low catch
    3S - she falls, he doubles
    Li
    Li
    PCoSp
    Li
    3STh - good

    Solid skate, some big mistakes, so I don't think it is enough to get gold.

    FS: 65.90 + 70.13 - 1.00 = 135.03 (SB)
    Total: 205.24 (SB)
    SILVER!

    I'd say this should lead if it wasn't for the fall, but now I'm not sure, especially taking into account the judges' love of V/T.

    I agree if not for the fall it should lead. They also have to REALLY work on getting their side by side spins together. They are just awful this competition, and really stand out because they are so bad compared to the rest of their skating.

    Would have been 136 with no deduction, I still think that was a bit of a lowball compared to V/T's score. Tatiana did put her hand down on one of her throws.

    I don't care that Russians are first. I prefer S/S program and I think they were better even with a fall.

    V/T were highly overscored
    S/S ok... it was clear that they can t beat the russians at "the russian/european championships"

    I need to see the protocol but S/S side-by-side spin was poor, did not deserve positive GOE. Could also have picked up a point if that was better, and if she hadn't fallen they'd probably have picked up another point separate from not getting the deduction.

    However, there is no denying the judges have somehow fallen in love with V/T.

    Just by looking at this description and comparing to the one of V/T, I don't think SS can get over VT, not matter who the judges are.

    and double footed one of the throws. OMG the costumes. Distracting. One of the few felt performances of the competition though.

    Funny that S/S so often seem to have sync problems with their spins. I think I have watched them being out of sync more often than not.

    It's extremely, extremely frustrating how Volosozhar/Trankov can skate an empty program where they mostly stroke from one element to another and not really pay much attention to the music and get 9s whilst Savchenko/Szolkowy show an extremely complex routine where pretty much everything is connected with transitions to get almost 2 points less on the PCS. Seriously, this is just ridiculous. Why even bother?
