No reason to check someone for not what TSL is. It's a kind of nitchy insider site. I enjoy it, but its not like not knowing what USA stands for
Anyone notice that Yura MIN is skating with Timothy KOLETO for KOR? He is a US skater who finished 6th as a Junior at 2012 Nationals. Who knew he had switched to ice dance?
Look at the tech team for ice dance:
TECH CONTROLLER: Alla SHEKHOVTSEVA (POL)- wife of Piseev, head of the Russian Federation
TECH SPEC: Andrjez DOSTATNI (POL) nitpicker
ASST TECH SPEC: Judy BLUMBERG (USA) stickler
We could be seeing some really low levels such as we saw at Cup of Russia
3F+3T (maybe UR on 3T)
3Lz e (maybe double footed) connecting steps going in though
3F- with a difficult entrance
Her layback spin looked better than ever and her speed and general power seems to have improved, the performance didn't sparkle but probably because she was trying to get back her jumps. A vast improvement from what was the most half-hearted FS of the Grand-Prix.

I wish she'd carry more speed through her steps, the transitions looked good though, not too many crossovers throughout the program.
Why isn't the lady's skate order for the short up? All other disciplines are already listed.
