S/S WOW! WOW!
S/S WOW! WOW!
New PB for S/S! Though seven points from V/T's WR.
Are Aliona and Robin a real-life couple? I love them together and hope they are!
147. What a great score for them. Still a distance from the Russians PB but I feel like they are FINALLY moving in the right direction. And making some good ground at it too.
Nicely done, very happy to see they've moved on from the axel.
Wow, I can't believe it. S/S might just win this. Very unfortunate mistakes. The performance seem to deflate. Aww...poor Tatiana. She clearly feels bad about the mistakes. Nice to see the Japanese fans so supportive.

3Tw - very high!
3S - she falls
3T+2T - she has hand down on 3T, no combo
FCCoSp - unison solid
3LoTh - good height
3STh - also nice
Li - better on the one-foot than usual
Unusual mistakes from her on sbs jumps. TES is ~5 lower than S/S, so they might fall to 2nd
Score: 67.96+74.22-1.00 = 141.18, 223.83, 2nd overall
The ending of that was just... flat for me. They don't take off with the music, AT ALL. (Also, those pants are SOOOO distracting... that bulge, JEBUS!)
Well this is going to be close now! I think S/S should definitely take the free, but the PCS and lead in the short might be enough...
I hate to say this, but I'm not entirely sure I care enough. I like both teams equally and will be happy to see either won win. Although I guess it could make for something of a good story if the Germans take it.
Ohhh yes s/s!! :d
Wow, Savchenko/Szolkowy won! I did NOT expect this.
The Olympics just became much more unpredictable...
30 points! Thanks Duhamel/Radford.
Congrats to Aliona and Robin on the win. Very unexpected win in the first face-to-face matchup.
So weird to see Tatiana make so many mistakes, she usually can hang onto those landings like a cat.
141.18 for V/T's FS into 2nd place overall.
OK, I've officially bumped up S/S's chances of winning in Sochi from 0.01% to 1%.
Well done, pairs, even with Tatiana's fall, it was a great skate from all 3.
