I was not expecting Chock and Bates to bump off the Shibutanis for the silver medal. I thought they would get bronze. WOW!
The Notre Dame de Paris program > Carmen in my opinion. V and M's Virtue and moir program seems labored although I will say the lifts are really innovative for Carmen.
Final results (top 5) below.

ETA: Their connection on and off the ice must be quite special.

Bates and Chock have no connection at all. Maybe having Igor as there coach paid off. Politiking at it's worst.
Darn, the Shibutanis received another deduction for an extended lift.
And Virtue/Moir lost two points at Canadian Nats for the same reason.
[Wonder if Shpilband would have helped prevent those mistakes???]

Soo love D/W. They are the only ones who's placements I care for in the U.S. so I'm happy they brought it like that because I'm just so impressed with all the dance teams that the U.S. has. All those deep edges were just really great to see.
One thing is for sure US Ice Dancing is in good hands when D/W retire. Some good Junior teams coming up to.
Davis and White are looking so strong. Crossing my fingers that they can last another quad.
Davis and White!!!!!
That competition was really fun!!!! Congrats to the medalists. I'm sorry to say that I missed Hubbell and Donahue, but saw the rest and really enjoyed. Worlds is gonna be nail bite for me!
