    3Tw
    3S - ok, maybe bit scratchy, looked about < in replay

    ChSq
    3FTh - twofooted
    3LoTh
    FiDs
    FCCoSp - unison off at end

    They comepletely lack presentation, but technically a decent skate. She seems relieved after their skate

    Well Wang and Zhang have a long way to go.

    They stayed on their feet, but for me that was about it. I'm also noticing their TES has dropped about 7 points since they ended the program, and they are still reviewing things.

    I do think they have potential, they seem well matched matched height wise and she especially has some style to her. But as a whole, they are not very finished or polished in their elements.

    89.97 for a total of 139.95. Into second. Purich and Tran will move up at least one spot.

    Margaret PURDY / Michael MARINARO (CAN)

    Casablanca (soundtrack) by Max Steiner

    She's in black low-cut dress. He's in black pants, white shirt, black butterfly

    3Tw - low, crashy catch
    3T+2T - he twofoots 3T, she only adds +1T
    2A - she has hand down, very low, almost fall
    Li
    BoDs
    Li
    3LoTh
    CCoSp - unison bit off at end
    Li - shaky, he had to set her down early
    3STh - twofooted
    ChSq - spiral, spread eagle
    PCoSp

    Bit sad skate, every element looked laboured to them. I agree that they won't have a big future due to lack of decent height difference.

    FS: 42.67+46.35-1.00 = 88.02, 139.99, in 2nd (out of 3)

    Tough skate for Purdy and Marinaro. She had a lot of trouble on the side by side elements at the beginning. From there I thought it looked like they were getting stronger, they did the first throw quite nicely, but then they had an almost disaster on one of the lifts and they had to abort it, and that seemed to just knock the sails out of the rest of the skate.

    88.02 for a total of 139.99 and into second.

    Well after the first group the standings are:

    1. Purich and Tran
    2. Purdy and Marinaro
    3. Wang and Zhang

    Good for Purich and Tran for climbing up out of last. Even though it looks like they didn't have a particularly stellar skate, Mervin said that the score was "pretty much what (he) expected".

    Here's hoping the next group is able to make some large strides and wake this event up!

    Yeah, the height difference sometimes makes them almost comical to watch, lol.

    3T+2T+2T - better than usual
    3S

    BoDs
    FCCoSp
    Li - very difficult dance lift entry and exit
    Li
    3STh - nice
    ChSq
    Li
    PCoSp

    Strong skate jam-packed with difficulty. The both fist pump! Sad this won't be in Sochi because it really deserves to...

    137+ Gosh it is a total bummer these two aren't going to Sochi. Oh well, take your 4CC championship and enjoy! (I mean I don't think any of the U.S. Pairs can come close, honestly).

    Wonder whether the Chinese fed will reconsider sending Sui/Han? The score they just put up could make them medal candidates in Sochi.

    TERRIFIC skate by Sui and Han. I feel like this was such a great vehicle for them. Youthful and virtuosic. What a shame that they won't be at the Olympics.

    137.14. Great score. Into first.
