    I agree- all the elements were fabulous- huge, easy, stunning- but emotionally they seemed a little muted tonight. She even seemed nervous at the beginning!

    This season is the first for Takahashi and her new partner -- and for Tran and his new partner, Natasha Purich, who compete for Canada.
    Thanks golden411, I wondered about this.

    One more thing re Takahashi/Kiyahara:
    They competed at Nebelhorn, but did not qualify for the Sochi Olympics.

    ETA, correction:
    Apologies that I bungled his name, which is Kihara.

    Does that mean that Japan won't have a pairs entry for the team competition?

    IIRC, you can enter one skater/team who didn't qualify in their own right.

    No. As long as Japan qualifies for the team event, they can pick Takahashi/Kihara for the team event.

    However, teams that do have skaters who qualified individually in a given discipline, must chose from those skaters. Example, U.S. have three spots in women's. If Ashley, Graice and Christina go, one or two of the trio must be chosen for the team event.

    I hope Martiusheva is ok. She fell flat down on her face on the throw and ended the program with a bloody chin and blood on her shoulder as well. :/

    I knew the team had to be picked from those who qualified to be on the team. I didn't know you could enter one entry that didn't qualify. Thanks .

    "Additional athletes," such as Takahashi/Kihara, will have to meet technical minimums -- which have not been announced yet, IIRC. Those minimums "may be different" from those necessary to compete in the events for the individual disciplines.
