    That C/S skates was WILD, all over the place. Something seemed off, are they having some personal problems?

    Yes going back to the placings i realised they're cool


    Well, Both leaders are virtually tied and both did very well,

    Still can't get over to the reaction from J\C to their fall,
    That reaction shows there's a history with that element
    At Bompard it was so easy for him that he used his free hand to uplift the crowd
    At Olympics i think he kinda fell at the end of it, Right ?
    Maybe there's a story behind that lift from their practices

    Is Simon ill or something? That's three triples he's doubled in the short/long. I don't think they were all pops either. What a shame.

    Probably will end up 11th. That's too bad.

    (I just got here and saw the end of the Italians. Can't wait to see that in full later along with whatever the drama was in the French team's performance.)

    I just think it's been a long season. They peaked at the Olympics. It truly is difficult to peak again.

    You know the state of US pairs skating is bad when the national championships don't have reliable SBS jumps or a second throw triple...

    One of them is injured. Still it's not like D/C are world class. Their basics are very poor.

    Castelli/Shnapir's long programs are generally all like this. They were slightly better at the Olympics, but in general, their LPs are riddled with mistakes. That 4S throw is not at all reliable for them, but they don't have another throw triple to go to as a backup plan. Unfortunate.

    Group three are on the ice warming up.

    Peng and Zhang's outfits really stand out.

    We don't really get that Antipova and Maisuradze are skating to Pink Floyd. These outfits scream Italian opera.

    In any case they are capable for a 120+ FS despite those little errors. They have something to build on for next season. Earlier in the season everyone was so sure they wouldn't even be close to making the Olympic team. Instead they got a second national title and a top 10 finish at the Olympics.

    Antipova and Maisuradze of Russia are next to go
    They are skating to Money and Great Gig in the Sky
    Expressive opening poses
    Huge quad twist to open
    3sal 2toe sbs
    pair combination spin - very Mishkutenok and Dmitriev inspired
    Moving into the back outside death spiral
    choreographic sequence is next - nice spiral variations from this team
    throw triple flip. maybe a touch down from Julia
    Both stumble on the sbs triple toe loop
    Group 5 axel lasso lift carries a lot of speed and distance
    Julia touches down with her free foot on the 3loop throw
    good unison on the sbs combo spin
    Group 4 lift carries a lot of speed and distance - complex split exit
    outstanding group5 reverser lasso lift
    Audience really enjoyed this performance.

    I feel like despite the mistakes
    And despite the big brother small sister feel
    And despite their suit and dress which are hilarious for a 70's rock program
    (and maybe also because of it)

    I'm kinda starting to fall in love with the Antilopas
    They're so special
