Short Dance scores
1 Cathy Reed / Chris Reed 55.51
2 Emi Hirai / Marien De La Asuncion 53.01
3 Shizuru Agata / Kentaro Suzuki 37.32
4 Chinatsu Nakazawa / Kokoro Mizutani 31.27
Reeds skated cleanly and Hirai/Asuncion had a mistake in the twizzle. But their scores are close. Of course, Hirai/Asuncion are not eligible for the Olympics. Maybe there are some considerations on the JSF side.
Wow the Reeds are a huge disappointment. With all their experience they are barely ahead of HIrai aneLa Asncion who made an error - this does not bode well for the REed's ; they are lucky the team in second is not eligible. I wish them luck but I do think if we all were honest it is clear the REeds are skating for Japan to go to the Olympics this is backed up by the fact another sibling is skating for another country because we all know making the singles in men's and women's in Japan would be very tough. IN fact could be a medal sweep for Japan in men's and women's though not likely with strong skaters from other countries.
