    I loved the Kerrs and they had very little height difference!

    An enjoyable competition. I was very surprised with the Ukrainans, really enjoyed their performance, room for improvement on the PCS side but the TES was good. A very disappointing competition for K/M, not even on the podium and bet by their countrymen who only ranked 11th in their junior nationals last year. When this coupled debuted a few years back, I thought they were heading for big things, they seem to be going backwards. The Americans could be challenging for the JW title next year.

    I cheked Bakers ISU bio and it says he was born in GB and that his mother was an olympic Ice Dancer in 1998, does anyone know what country she represented?

    There might be a bit of a typo in the bio: His mom is Sharon Jones, who competed in the 1988 Olympics with Paul Askham. They competed for Great Brittan and finished 13th. Best finish at Worlds was 9th. So that explains where Jean Luc gets his skills!


    ETA: Here are a few videos of Jones and Askham:

    Also another fun trivia fact, their coach was Nicky Slater, who many of you know from his Eurosport commentary.
