    Already 170! Looks like medal winners need 210 at least.

    Hao Zhang is a beast (I mean that in a good way!). But this is a gorilla-flea team and it just looks too weird, like he's skating with his daughter. I'm not sure this is going to work out long term, even though she appears to have worked hard to try to get her skills level up.

    Cheng PENG / Hao ZHANG (CHN)

    Music: Poeta by Vincente Amigo

    4Tw - big, caught a bit sideways
    3T+2T - she falls on 3T (credit: 3T + fall)
    Li
    3LoTh - lands, then fall. Perhaps caught a rut?
    2A - his landing a bit scratchy
    FCCoSp - unison good
    3STh - big
    Li
    BiDs
    PCoSp
    ChSq
    Li

    He grimaces after performance. Two falls will cost. They have zero chemistry...

    FS: 56.50 + 54.15 - 2.00 = 108.66
    Tot: 167.18, in 3rd (out of 8)

    Yeah, I predict that they may be done after next year, especially if they don't medal at the Olympics (which they probably won't).

    Maybe Zhang wants to retire but they are not letting him.

    Sorry but that team is just ridiculous. She's nowhere, nowhere near his skating ability.

    Polish takes time. It's too bad they couldn't spend a year with a really good ice dance coach. But they already look like they have far more innate grace than any other current American team vying for Sochi. A coaching change would probably help.

    What's happened to the Chinese? They used to seem so invincable.

    Yes. Delilah is not a bad developmental, junior team coach but I feel they would need somebody else to move to the next level. Especially presentation wise.

    And the thing is, I think they *could* move to the next level, which is more than you can say for the rest of the top American teams. They just finished in the top 8 at their first world's after little more than what? a year together? I think they have real potential, but they need the right training to get to that next level.

    Wow, everyone is bringing it. This is Fierce. I wonder if the top 8 can handle the pressure. Teams not in the top ten scoring well over 100 is pretty impressive.

    I hope so. They have nothing to lose now. Rather see them go for th3a and fall than deliver another bland meh performance like in the SP. If you're going to get shot down anyway, at least go out with all guns blazing.

    Oh yeah, they have the technical goods, it's just the case of finishing touches now and building consistency.

    Who would have though that the 2nd place US team would still be leading at Worlds with just two groups to go? Great job S/K.

    Well I think one would medal with 200 probably less.

    I have just noticed. Peng/Zhang got higher PCS than Berton/Hotarek. Wow. Seriously?

    S/K got 7s. Skating in second group and not even skating to their 100%. Bizarre judging.
