a very high score for valentinas program indeed, its a senior B in Italy so... didnt really like the music, it was kinda boring... she has worked a lot with her expression to the music thought. The french girl Ventard was sure energentic, will be one to watch
What happened to Elladj Balde? 4 deductions? Was that 4 falls or did that include something else, like a music violation?
Hopefully there haven't been a lot of pairs dropping out like at Ondrej Nepela last season, so the medalists will get WS points. Berton/Hotarek are likely to win this but Martiusheva/Rogonov did beat them at ON last season. I'm interested to see if M/R can continue their good form from the test skates and also see how much Takahashi/Kihara have improved. T/K are a very elegant pair but were very tentative and unsynchronized during the summer shows. They'll probably need a couple of years to truly gel.
Valentina's music is something I haven't heard of. I think it wasn't used before. It was written in the Programs thread. I don't know yet if I like the program or not. It isn't as good as her last year SP which is the best she's ever done but it is good and might get better. I always said she has great potential but until she came to Yuka and Jason she had only cheap and crappy programs and never liked her dresses. Even in her first year with Y&J she still had that kind of look/programs but we could feel the change. Too bad she went to them so late and lost a lot of time with Morozov who did nothing for her.
I am curious too see her LP. I don't remember reading anything about the music.
I didn't pay too much attention until now to Anais Ventard. I remember seeing her in junior but I never knew she was so flexible. I really liked her spins.
After Anais the internet crashed. I wanted to see the other italian ladies. Do you know if they have an archieve somewhere?
What happened to Ellaj? How did he manage to have 4 points deduction in the short program?
This user on YouTube has already uploaded some videos of the programs: http://www.youtube.com/user/0316seisato/videos
I'm sure there's going to be more.
when's the pairs ? only come here for pairs results
More or less: more is more
Pairs SP is on now.
Annabelle Prolss/Ruben Blommaert GER
White/grey sparkly costumes
Music: O Mio Babbino Caro
3Tw - nice
3FTh - low, but clean
Li - nice
Clean, very nice program. Too bad they can only do senior B's this season. Maybe that'll give them time to work on sbs triples.
SP: 33.80+24.08=57.88, in 1st
More or less: more is more
Nicole Della Monica/Matteo Guarise ITA

3S - he has hand down
3STh - she really has to hang on, but stays on one foot

thanks, I love Prolsz and Blommaert
hope puberty wont wreck havoc on her jumps
if they keep improving they will continue the German Pairs tradition
Loved Prolss/Blommaert. Wonder if they'll switch to Steuer after this season?
No, because Anabelles age I think is ineligible for seniors yet

I think they were doing an ice resurfacing (one group of junior pairs, one group of seniors). So hopefully it will come back.
