    I/K's PCS are insane. Pushing P/B. And I/K are nobody.
    Wow. beat W/P and C/L by almost 2 points on PCS alone.

    I thought I/K VERY overscored on PCS. Boo to the judges. Another team they desperately want to hold up.

    The Shibs placement isn't too bad considering their late start.

    Bobrova/Soloviev just slayed it. Great skate, all elements worked quite well, good flow, nicely presented. I am surprised he didn't fall on the twizzles.

    This should place at least 3rd if not 2nd.

    Yes. Technical ability is there but Zoueva just has absolutely no clue what to do with them as far as choreography is concerned.

    Yeah, I don't think they'll get bronze. But I think they can move up. There's not much of a gap from 5th.

    70.05? I would have had them closer to 72. The coaching change has done MIRACLES with them. For one thing, she's finally learned not to hunch over like a crone. That's worth quite a few points right there.

    Well The Battle For The Bronze should be QUITE interesting, no?

    I think they mostly need a little more time. I remember not so long ago when a world judge told me the worry was that Maia wouldn't grow (a different kind of problem to have in skating). I noticed this year she really has grown. There is no longer a huge difference in height. She is no longer itsy bitsy either and they are no longer the fastest twizzlers ever. I think it's taking time to work through the changes.

    I wouldn't mind B&S winning bronze; I never used to like them but they've improved a lot this year and they've earned it.

    Bronze is between B/S and P/B, with C/L from the outside looking in.
    C/L will need some help to score that bronze.
    P/B will need to skate clean.
    B/S will self-destruct like normal. But depends on P/B as well. P/B probably won't be able to take advantage because they are half dead.
    C/L doesn't have the support.

    That was a whole other time. That year they only needed one team to majorly mess up to take 3rd. This year they would need atleast 6. It isnt going to happen.

    Bobrova & Soloviev meanwhile move into 3rd place. A good shot at the bronze if they can keep it together in the long as they also had higher PCS than P&B which is telling.
