    I'm SO happy for Miki, and I hope Lena will win... Gold for Lena and silver for Miki would be the perfect result for me!

    I sincerely hope both Narumi and Tran, respectively, retain their composure and are able to concentrate on their own performances.

    Here is my wish at Nebelhorn:
    -Both the Reeds and Takahashi/Kihara to do well and place high enough to get qualified for Olympics.
    -All Australian skaters to do well and place high enough to get qualified for the Olympics Team Event.
    -Tran with his new partner to get on the podium! because Tran is forever my sentimental favorite , with millions of my 'thank-you', for all his devotions, contributions, hard work, and his sweet smiles and bitter-sweet tears;;;;

    Another wish of rather ill-side of me: Miki to land all her jumps including gorgeous 3Lz of course, just to shut up all nay-sayers mouth.

    Yes.
    Skaters with stable jumps always at practice perform more complicated jumps and combos than at competitions.

    Simpler content at competition gives stability.

    AFAIK Gracie Gold at practice performs 3+3+3 combos and URed 3A.

    Uhm, Miki seems alright to me I also didnt see a triple triple, but as said she really didnt do that much. I did not see a triple, triple, triple of Elena, but I am not a jumping specialist either triple triple double seems more plausible to me.

    At 2011 she won Worlds without 3+3 Combo both in SP and FS.

    Yes, I definately dont want to downrate her because of the missing 3+3, she is a lovely Skater after all

    Ice Dance Practice Session

    Group 1

    On the Ice were, Ksenia Monko / Kirill Khaliavin Russia, Madison Hubbell / Zachary Donohue USA, Shari Koch / Christian Nüchtern from Germany + 1 other couple that I lost track of :(

    As I was eating not much to say sorry

    But I saw the Russian program and it looked really well, loved their expressions in the face through out their whole performance, I definately think that Russia wont run out on good Ice Dancers any time soon.
    The german pair sadly had a big mistake during one of their Twizzles - Christian fell :(

    Group 2

    On the Ice were from Israel Allison Reed / Vasili Rogov, Justyna Plutowska / Peter Gerber Poland, Danielle Orbien / Gregory Merriman Australia, Xintong Huang / Xun Zheng China and from Finland Henne Lindholm / Ossi Kanervo.

    I am quite a fan of Henna and Ossi, love their speed and they really make a good pair. In my opinion they often get too few points. Their SD was definately after my taste, also great outfit and lovely no touch sequence.
    The polish couple was also lovely to watch, men should wear pink more often in my opinion - loved their chemistry on the ice, nice tempo change during their routine as well.

    I also want to mention the Chinese pair, not as fast as other couples but they are still very much in sync in their movements.

    Group 3

    On the Ice were Reed´s from Japan, Sara Hurtado / Adria Diaz Spain, Kira Geil / Tobias Eisenbauer Austria, Gabriela Kubova / Matej Novak Cezka and from Georgia Angelina Telegina / Otar Japaridze.

    Sarah & Adria are one of the most loved couples among figure skating fans, their chemistry on the ice is magikal and yes I like their SD - lovely lift quite late in the routine, the sequences looked ok too. They have some funny elements build in as well, some type of Clown & jumping jack. Talking about funny, the Austrians in 2013 were fantastic with their intepretation of Haxen & Madels - their programm now is a bit more serious, at least the SD. Still lovely to watch.
    The czech couple was the only one that did perform a FD so far, which was also very enjoyable just like the other 2 couples were.

    Group 4

    Group 4

    On the Ice were, Pilar & Leonardo Mexiko, Federica Testa / Lukas Csolley Slovakia, Lesia Volodenikova / Vital Vakunov Belarus, Irina Shtork / Taayi Rand Estonia and from Hungary Dora Turocz /Balazs Major

    Very interesting group because I noticed that quite a few choreographie´s seem to be heavily inspired by the german pair Nelly & Alex. The Belarusian pair also skated to Corpse Bride. I dont want to criticise that, but I honestly think that those original and funny choregraphies of the germans had quite some impact on some of the pairs, not only in this group.

    Nevertheless the first music part of the Belarusian team was fantastic, it was quite laid back and romantic

    The Mexican pair also in pink and the Hungarian in blue were my favorites. Both Ladies with some type of Tiara, Dora added to that a feather which looked really lovely. To me they both really looked as a team throughout their routine and also the contact to the audience (us 30 people) was there.

    Group 5

    Group 5

    Last group now; on the Ice were from the Ukraine Siobhan Heekin-Canedy /Dimitri Dun, Ramona Elsener / Florian Roost Switzerland and last but not least from Turkie Alisa Agafanova / Alper Ucar. The couple from Uzbekistan Elizaveta / Viktor did not show up.

    The couple from the Ukraine tends to have very interesting programs, like the one with the Titanic soundtrack some time ago, damn they were so on fire there! They did practise their SD and it was compared to what firework they can start relatively laid back, but funny
    Florian & Ramona (great pink - glitter dress) had a very good practice I would say. Their sequenzes were really tight and risky, but also the look in the crowd was there. There are now maybe about 15 people, pity for the skaters - seriously why is that practice so late.... They could had started a lot earlier than 9 this morning, but I guess they didnt want to throw the boys out of their beds that early.


    Next is the pairs practice that will close around midnight.

    Miki starts in the first group as 4th. Skater, maybe some Japanese TV Channel does broadcast? There are some Japanese press people here. Best bet is probably some russian Channel, they tend to always broadcast full - or what about Ice Network?
