    Unfortunately, what you say is so true. I have always preferred Pairs to Dance, but for some reason Pairs is not popular amongst the youngsters coming through the skating ranks.

    You know, in situations like these where there are only 2 Junior entries and 3 Senior entries, it would have been a nice gesture to have them all go out in 1 group. Yes, there would still be separate results and trophies and all. But it would give the Juniors a chance to "compete against" the more experienced couples, and to learn from them from close distance.

    Just a thought.

    Anyway, there were no changes to the overall order from the SP. Too many mistakes in both programmes from della Monica and Guarise to put them in contention for the win.

    Mmmm. It's just as well the Pairs weren't included in the Predictions Game, as I got the top 2 the wrong way around! Oops!

    That came around quicker than I expected.

    Junior Dance is on NOW!!!

    According to the listings on the livestream page, it isn't supposed to be on until half-past. So, I was expecting a re-surfacing.

    But, it's even better for me that it's on now! If they close everything up, I mightn't have to miss the Senior Dance for tea-time after all!

    EDIT: Oh, hang on. There's a big entry for the Junior Dance, so I will still miss the Senior Dance.

    Foresti/DeMatte did quite well for a new team. He hasn't been very lucky with partners in the past, I hope this one will stick.

    I know della Monica/Guarise didn't have a good skate by their standards in either Short or Free, But for a new pairing to be so close to them in all columns does look very promising.

    And, let's face it, Italy needs a promising Pairs team. The top 2 aren't going to be around forever, and if this year's Nationals are anything to go by, there aren't many other Pairs teams coming through the ranks.

    Anyway, although the FD results page hasn't been updated yet to include Valentina GABUSI/Nik MIRZAKHANI, the Junior Dance has finished. And it was great seeing the delight of Valentina and Nik when they realised they had won!

    There's nothing more miserable than somebody winning a competition and not looking happy. But this couple certainly were absolutely delighted! And you can't blame them!

    Looking to entries and reults - maybe all who want take place in nationals?
    There IS a qualification system. Rodegheiro will go to Euros with Marchei and Costner due to her being ranked 3rd in the national qualification ranking system according to this article http://www.neveitalia.it/sport/figur...entina-marchei

    Due to a strong FS at nationals, PPB qualifies ahead of Righini for the Euros and Olympic spot due to the national ranking (363.03 vs 348.23 pts) http://www.neveitalia.it/sport/figur...king-nazionale

    You're talking about the qualification system Italy has to determine their team for the ISU Championships. Alex asked about the qualification system for Italian Nationals.

    Anybody knows how the national ranking is determined exactly? Parkinson is so inconsistent, I can't believe this one strong FS pulled him high enough in order to grab the Euros and Olympic spots. I mean judging on his past results, he might not make the FS at Euros, let alone at OWG. :/

    And Righini is better at consistancy?? Looking at his past results, he is just as inconsistant.

    If you make a number of big mistakes in the SP, which is something Parkinson has been prone to in the past and which is what happened here as well, at major events that can mean not proceeding to the FS.

    Ivan isn't proneless to making mistakes in the SP as well. Italy could still send Ivan to Euro and the Olympics I guess, but Parkinson is leading the race. Everybody is still awaiting the final decision.............

    Now that I have seen Ivan Bariev's gala performance at the Italian Championships, I realise just how gullible I am.

    Tena Čopor wasn't wanting a copy of the video because she was on the ice straight before him, and missed his performance.

    She was looking a copy of it because Ivan starts STRIPPING halfway through his performance!!!

    Like, imagine if I had managed to find a copy of it. Supplying a video of a guy in his twenties stripping to an underage girl?! Doesn't sound good, does it?!

    Thank goodness I didn't manage to find it!

    Last I checked, the age of consent was 15 in most European countries and taking off your shirt didn't equal porn.

    Valentina's SP video is up;

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mBf8...ature=youtu.be

    It is pretty impressive that she messed up the salchow, with some turns after and still was able to put the 3T after!

    Great effort!

    15?! Flamin' 'eck! And I always thought England had it too young at 16! (It's 17 here in Northern Ireland)

    (And I'm not just saying that because, at 28, I'm getting on a bit. I've always thought that.)

    Yeah, but although she looks a LOT older, Tena is only 14 (she's 15 in a few weeks time). I know taking your shirt off ain't porn, but you have to be extra careful when dealing with girls that young!

    Put it like this, if I had realised at the time I found her Facebook profile that she was so young, I wouldn't have added her. (My general rule is, unless you know them personally, don't add anybody who is under 16). But I didn't realise, and so I did add her.

    Moral of the story - don't add girls on Facebook if you don't know their age for definite! And certainly don't agree to do any favours for them!

    Yes or that delicate psyche might collapse because of watching a naked chest, scarring them for life.
