    agreed about this, they crumble when they make mistakes
    just look at their faces in K&C, they get carried away very easily and they get affected, see how Elena always cries when they make mistakes

    And with their talent and the promise they have shown in Juniors, they could have been challenging or even maybe beating Virtue/Moir and Davis/White by now.

    Their basic skating is absolutely incredible, their movement is elegant, fluid and refined, they present their programs really well - they have the whole package!

    But it means jack if they can't perform the elements consistently. They have had so many opportunities now...

    Of course, they are still young and they can still improve. Who knows what will happen? But judging on all the past drama and their work ethic being questioned, it's hard to maintain hope.

    It's just so frustrating... :/

    I am with you 100%. I was in love with them since I first saw them skate. I keep waiting for them to finally skate to their potential and start to dominate. Once in a blue moon they skate like they did in Paris and make me believe they can, but sadly they revert to their old habits. Something is not working in their preparation/team right now and they don't seem like they want to address it...
    I can't blame her for giving up after a mistake like that. Continue to skate the program like nothing happened comes with experience and she is still young. I think she did an admirable job in smiling and keeping her composure quite well (despite tearing up in the K&C when she saw how close they were) but she composed herself well for the premiere.
    I don't know what confidence they have now going to Sochi with their last 2 subpar competitions. The pressure there will be huge :(

    Together I/k are a team of massive failure and missed opportunities and must break up. I/k have no future no chance of success. This is pathetic and they should not be allowed to go to Sochi because there's no future at all together. Maybe with different partners. This is a disgraceful embarrassment.

Although the European title in dance is probably bigger than say a World bronze anyway.

    That's the new age of total maturity in ice dance. I/k are just hopeless and need to go.

    It's now 4 senior seasons -2010-2011, 2011-2012, 2012-2013, 2013-2014- of I/k being a terrible embarrassment. How many season do they need? They are awful and can't compete. I don't see why they don't retire.

    They are not "awful". They're the European silver medalists, for crying out loud.

    B/a and p/b weren't even there. Silver would have been 4th place. They are in fact awful. They have fallen behind an older team. Ridiculous. Russia Sochi team should be b/s, r/t and s/z. I/k are too embarassing.

    well, it's a disgraceful embarrassment for you to be on this forum, and yet we still all get on with our lives pretty well, don't we?

    This is nonsense and doesnt change that I/k are done. They'd be lucky to be like b/a to d/w in America in 2010 after this.
