    Ilinykh/Katsalapov - Unique, originals lift and for once they didn’t blow the twizzles. Very strong basic skating featuring smooth and deep edges. Beautiful posture and lines throughout.

    A question mark over the choreography, however. In terms of ice coverage and element layout the program didn’t seem particularly impressive and it didn’t have a lot of character or highlights either. Good basics, good elements but they didn’t add up to something more.

    The scoring at this competition is ridiculously high. But great skate by the Russians

    Yes, that's how I feel too. There was something missing for me in the overall program. A lack of cohesion perhaps?

    Their score is wayyyyy too high, I think. Anyway sky_fly20, I guess I/K = Russian #1. This was the formal announcement.

    Holy crap, P/B is behind I/K. TES scores were costly.

    if they can keep skating like this in the Olympics
    then Olympic Bronze is theirs or even silver with major disaster from V/M

    As much as I hate to say this, I think the judges got it right.

    Pechalat/Bourzat seemed to have lost their momentum since their injury. It was skated ok but it didn’t have the speed, power and the quality of execution you would expect from a team challenging for a bronze OWG medal.

    Their showed quite good expression and freedom in their upper body movement but the program still isn’t very fleshed out and looks like an early version. It lacks highlights. Nice variation of speed, though.

    Well if a Russian team must podium at the Olympics as the conspiracy theorists say, I would prefer that it were I/K. It's hard to believe they improved so much in scores over the course of the week; were one of them sick at NHK or something??

    P/B

    I/K have the best programs this season after D/W
    they are OBM contenders, P/B are old and B/S are going backwards

    it will be a battle between W/P, C/L and I/K
