2 spots for China and Germany.
I really feel for Proelss/Blommaert. They might not have the most impressive technical arsenal yet but they skated two clean, secure very strong programs with well extended movements and I think they deserved to be 5th or 6th at least.
exactly. ice dancing is heavily pcs based

Woah, did not expect Denney and Frasier to win! I hope this is an indication of the things to come in U.S. pairs...
Fedorova & Miroshkin gave it away by not skating a good SP. They just had too far to climb being in 7th. But Denney & Frazier had a great performance.
I agree with Ziggy, it's an interesting podium with 3 very different teams. Great job to all of them.
Lina is still a bit headcasey, but they still have 2 more Seasons they are still very young
