It will be an interesting battle between the two Russian couples to see who comes out on top. S/K were very impressive in Warsaw last week, while B/L were disappointing in Paris. Other than that I guess it is S/S event to lose, hopefully they will perform better than there last event.
M-T/M's score from SA (208+) was 7 points higher than S/S's score from CoC (201+). S/S are not guaranteed the title here; they're highly inconsistent, and the Canadians are very consistent
hope that S/S have improved since CoC...
pushing the boudaries in dance and in live
hello, here's the stream http://www.day.to/watch/live/streami...ix-moscow.html
fingers crossed for Aliona and Robin and Kirsten and Dylan, I also hope that Germans improved and got some consistency in jumps
will narumi ever land a 3S??? i don t think so...
What a silly mistake for Rockne...
stupid mistakes by D/B....
wooow what a lift, and Twist by A/M
Boy, if that crowd is indicative of what the crowd for Sochi will be like, it's going to be challenging for the skaters. It's like a Yankees crowd during a NY/Boston Red Sox game. Ouch.
jumps are shaky but decent score at least

It's disappointing, because of all the US pairs, I thought they had the most polish. But that seems significantly reduced this year. Maybe it's a by-product of his injury?
