    This is the first Chinese Pair I've actually loved watching. So good to see them continue to do well!

    It's weird to see a Canadian Pair that's not Barbie and Paul skate to this song...

    Yes, their height difference is almost impossible to manage, and it showed. Even bad for ice dance.

    In the replay it looked like her foot got caught in the space between his legs so as she was going up her foot hit the inside of his leg and therefore she couldn't get up above his head. That was unfortunate.

    Purdy/Marinaro have long worked with the same conditioning coach as Virtue/Moir.

    Her name is Maria Mountain, and she seems super knowledgeable/competent. Each season, V/M always show her the specific lifts that they are performing, and Mountain customizes their workouts accordingly.

    Maria Mountain ‏@revcon
    Best of luck to Team RevCon athletes Virtue & Moir and Purdy & Marinaro at Skate Canada #Road2Sochi

    Boy I really underestimated the Chinese pair. I guess I'll get at least 5 points if they end up where I think they'll end up.

    I also overestimated Davis/Brubaker.
