And Mrs. P, is -1.00 the standard deduction for an extended lift?
In other words, if the lift indeed exceeded the time limit, the Shibutanis are not being penalized unfairly, are they?
In any case, I hope the Shibs will skate a strong FD.
Proud of our SD performance. On to the FD! Good luck to the men tonight! Thanks for all the support! #Omaha2013

I still don't understand the rationale for the rule that says a lift can't be too long. Why does the CoP insist that a lift can only be held for a certain amount of time?
Are they even past Skate America level/capacity? If they can't boost the attendance at the event, might as well boost the scores!

Not keen on their free dance, but of all the programs this season, Meryl and Charlie's Giselle is my fave in any discipline. EXCELENTE!

I hope the Shibutani's come back strong tomorrow!! After Davis and White, they are my favorite ice dancing team
Lifts are only a highlight in a dance. Pure dance doesn't even have lifts (see ballroom rules).
I like the Shibs, but I am personally happy for Madison Chock. Hope she and Bates get to go to Worlds. Really looking forward to the free dance!
For those ice dance experts, especially pre-cop, weren't lifts timed before CoP too? I somehow thought that one of the 'big deals' in dance lifts was the ability to get in to position effortlessly and quickly - do the ta da moment - then get out equally efortlessly and quickly.
