Good for Vera and Yuri will probably be in first with that!
More or less: more is more
Aliona SAVCHENKO / Robin SZOLKOWY (GER)
Music: The Nutcracker by Petr I. Tchaikovski
3FTh - big as usual
3T+3T+SEQ - he doubles both
2A - she singles
3STh - slight twofooted
Some costly mistakes. They might no even win the FS, but their lead from the SP should keep them ahead
Score: 63.06+70.02 = 133.08 (SB), 206.33 (SB) and 1st overall
BRAVO!!! Simply the Best!!!!
S/S has the best program, but it was not skated at their best today, best wishes for them going forward!
S/S really are wonderful. Love this program for them.
Congrats to the Medalists!

Thanks to Mao88, I got to enjoy another performance of S/S! I ADORE both their programs this year. In the FS, I esp. love the last two lifts -- interesting entrances, exits, and positions. I love the unity of the concept of the FS.
BTW my heart was in my mouth hearing that K M-T had to recover from a fall out of a lift -- glad to see it was more a slip on the touchdown rather than a fall from the air. Still, wtg moving on as though nothing had happened. Their lifts really come very late in the program == I wish they had at least one in the first part to balance out the choreo a bit.
