    I guess the aim of the Team Event is to get as many skaters tired as possible
    so the individual event will have a splatfest and controversy issues

    He can't go through the procedures. He's not legally resident in the UK.

    Thanks for clarifying this.

    Yes, that is same offcials people like in soccer who argue against video proof for goals with argument that wrong decision are important to make sport interesting. :(

    I can already guess his next rule to make FS more "interesting": on the slow motions for the technical panel, how about blurring out the feet at all landings?
    Ziiing!
    (I think if Gailhaguet gets the job, he'd install batteries under each judge's chair to electroshock them when he doesn't like the score they come up with!)

    The athletes are just pawns for these people.

    That stream I gave earlier froze at the start of the Israeli pair. But here is another one that is working (but the quality is not as good as the other was):


    спорт-2 Stream 2


    Hope this helps

    Very good speed and attack from Davidovich/Krasnapolski. Huge potential here.

    It's well seeing Hausch and Wende have only been married for a few months.

    If they had been married longer, Maylin wouldn't have been looking so lovingly at Daniel as they came off the ice - she'd have been giving him dirty looks and a severe telling off for falling!!!

    Back from school! Yay, weekend and I can devote myself to Euros

    Nicole DELLA MONICA / Matteo GUARISE (ITA)

    Music: Samson and Delilah by Camille Saint-Saens

    3Tw - crashy catch
    3S - both stepout/hand down almost in unison
    3STh - ok, hung on (maybe slight 2foot)
    Li - bit awkward exit
    StSq
    BiDs
    PCoSp

    Technically a quite messy program, but no falls. They look serious, but still crack some smiles.

    SP: 29.41+24.24 = 53.65 (PB), in 3rd (out of 12)
