    Monko/Khalivian should not be allowed to compete with that kind of height similarity
    look at her height compared to him !

    score = 62+
    overscored

    rumors or Zueva made a statement ?
    I guess anyone is better than Kustarova

    I hope they will go to the Olympics
    they could use the experience compared to R/T who are old skaters

    Really?? That would be great! And it makes sense, since after V/M and D/W retiring, she surely wants to have some new high-level couples 8she akready has the Shibs)
    Only 5th place for M/K

    you expected a higher placement for M/K

    all their elements should be marked with 0 or - GOE
    based on her height alone

    I really don't know what audience saw, but I think that judges very still very generous.
    Both Riazanova and Sinitsina skated clean programs and finished behind Ilinykh. More couple skated clean programs (Stepanova for example also).
    Nikita made a mistake at the end of step sequence and he again was in trouble in twizzles (when Bobrova lost balance in one series of twizzle, Nikita lost balance in two series from three). Also when you compare all talked speed - today Ilinykh and Katsalapov were slower then at TEB, while Bobrova was faster. Overall Bobrova had 35 points in elements, Ilinykh 31 points, looking at mistakes, what is so surprising?
    Bobrova and Soloviev were more expressive today, they had more energy, they danced greatly, I agree with higher components as well.
    I take second place like very nice present from judges to number 2 dance team.
    (Remeber last year when Riazanova skated not very good short dance, she was fifth after the short, Nikita with two abvious mistakes is on second).

    Of course long program is another story, Nikita will have enough space to show that he can skate greatly and if he will I am sure he will get a lot of points and they will go to Euros / Olympics / Worlds.

    Obsessed is probably an understatement.

    My guess would be that sky_fly20 has his/her own unresolved issues about his/her own height and that's why he/she tries to fit everyone into his/her own skewed view of the world!

    But why keep posting the same thing hundreds of times, like a broken record? This happens in every thread where there's a mention of M/K. And I'm not even a fan of M/K (prefer S/Z to get the third spot) but it gets a bit tiring.
