yes, and it had good GOE in the past, the triple axel will maybe never get that.
Falling from that height should hurt, badly. Even if you jumped down from a cliff with controlled landing. Like that... I wouldn't be surprised if she got injured.

I was worried about that fall. I hope Aliona is alright.
Beautifully skated program from Aliona and Robin.
1 Aliona SAVCHENKO / Robin SZOLKOWY GER 73.25 1
2 Vera BAZAROVA / Yuri LARIONOV RUS 69.72 2
3 Kirsten MOORE-TOWERS / Dylan MOSCOVITCH CAN 65.65 3
4 Julia ANTIPOVA / Nodari MAISURADZE RUS 62.87 4
5 Alexa SCIMECA / Chris KNIERIM USA 59.56 5

7 Lindsay DAVIS / Rockne BRUBAKER USA 51.59 7
8 Narumi TAKAHASHI / Ryuichi KIHARA JPN 48.64 8
Very painful fall, poor Aliona
i enjoyed S/S skate sooo much... they had improved so much from CoC .. maybe still a litte bit slow
but the Music is so soft too...
BUT PLS SWITCH BACK TO THE 3FLIP THROW
Aljona and Robin are such beautiful skaters--I just wish they'd stop trying that Th3A. It's not worth getting injured. I hope she's ok.
Apart from the axel... What's the highest point value throw?(viable)
Really wish that S/S would switch back to the 3FTh
except for quad, triple Flip/Lutz have same throw value, i think.
I hope Aljona is not crying out of despair. They have worked so hard for another four years to finally get the OGM, and now V/T look invincible while S/S cannot bring their best weapon online.
3A Throw 7,5

At this point S/S should ditch the 3axel. Yes they need it to beat V/T but the Russians are due for a bad skate and if S/S skate clean in Sochi they might win.
