The fact that the Ukrainians received a 38 PCS vs their 35 is really strange for me, I really think that Lavrentieva/Rudik were actually really terrible artistically! But that's my own opinion, as always...
    Both of those triples were -1 GOE at best. They botched both throws, crashed on the twist and everything they did looked raggedy and muscled through. Their basics are terrible and they didn't even pretend to skate to the music. It was kinda as bad as gets.

    It was just excruciating to see them attempt all that technical content when they can barely skate...

    Lavrentieva/Rudik also ignored the music but their postures, lines and basic skating were far superior.

    Good skate for F/M! I don't know how high the score can go, it depends on the PCS... Maybe a top5 performance?

    ChSq
    2FTh

    Very nice clean skate. They don't have the difficulty to medal, but they should remain in mid top 10.

    What a performance from the German pair! I really like them artistically too, their flow and elegance was a lot better even than F/M!!

    Brittany JONES / Ian BEHARRY (CAN)

    Music: Winter and Summer from Four Seasons by A. Vivaldi

    3Tw - bit crashy catch
    3T
    ChSq
    3LoTh - bit tilted, but landed nicely
    2F+2T
    Li
    3STh - good length and flow
    FCCoSp - unison nice
    Li
    BoDs
    PCoSp

    Very strong skate - they both look relieved.

    FS: 49.20 + 47.20 = 96.40
    Tot: 147.92, in 2nd just barely (out of 12)

    I would have their score a bit higher, but perhaps they lost some levels

    The Canadians lost a lot of points in the last three elements, I think: that BoDs was a B level, and the second lift was almost a level 1, too...

    Oh come on! Proelss/Blommaert should have easily beaten Jones/Beharry thanks to the PCS. It's ridiculous that their PCS was almost equal given how raggedy and unfinished J/B's movements were. That's some seriously crap judging right there.

    A winning performance from Denney/Frazier (unless somebody really suprised us). Loads of speed, loads of attack, big elements. Well done!
