    What an interesting competition this will be! Reigning world champions Team Unique won't be at worlds to defend their title since they failed to qualify for the event at Finland's nationals..

    Here's some videos:

    Team Finland 1: (Marigold IceUnity)
    Short: "African Voque"
    Free: "Spirits"Darkness. Fog. Lights. Rush. Speed.
    In the heart of the city car horns sound and brakes screech as people rush to their destinations. Even a small mistake can be crucial. The moment of faith is near after a failed evade leads to an accident. The disaster has occured. Time stands still. Tu-tum, tum-tu, tu-tum … Hearts of injured beat the last few times while waiting for rescuers to arrive. The souls are released from the body. But where are these spirits on their way to and where do they eventually end up?

    Team Finland 2:(Rockettes)
    Short: "Hawaiian dance"

    Free:"Queen medley"

    Team USA 1 (Haydenettes)
    Free

    Team Sweden 2: (Team Boomerang)
    Free: "Robots"


    Team Russia 1:(Paradise)
    Free

    Team Canada 1: (Nexxice)
    Free: "West Side Story"

    Team Canada 2: (Les Supremes)
    Free: "The Great Gatsby"

    Lot of good teams competing! For me, I think the strongest teams will be the two finnish teams, especially Marigold with they suberb programs, Nexxice from Canada and Paradise from Russia.

    Good luck to all teams!

    I absolutely love Marigolds' free! It would be great to see them win! And also it would be great to see lots of successful programs

    Does anyone know if the ISU skating channel will offer "on demand" viewing for the World Synchronized Skating Championships for skating fans unable to watch the live stream of the Short programs? They did this for the 2014 World Junior Figure Skating Champs, but I have not been able to get this to work for 2014 World Figure Skating Championships from last week.

    I was working when the ladies event of senior Worlds was on last week and was able to watch the recorded ISU video of the whole event however it kept buffering I think due to it being a large file or lots of people were watching it so I had more luck watching the skaters videos in order on youtube.

    Ice network is carrying it, so if the ISU is carrying it, it will be geoblocked in the US.

    I don't know what Russia's going to do if they place top three or even win the sp again and don't medal!!!

    Good luck to them!!!

    They are the team waiting to have a breakthrough.

    Finland canada Sweden USA is very very common.

    Russia is the country with the best shot at a breakthough.

    Hope the ice-bums will perform again at the opening ceremony today at 17.00 (CET) right before the competition.

    I'm also curious to see the performances. I watched synchro at Eurosport for the first time ten years ago or some such. After that I've watched sporadically, which is to say when I've had the chance. I'm amazed why it's shown and talked about so little, even in the countries with succesful teams.

    Glad I can watch the ISU skating channel this year, but I could really need comments . Anyone who can/wants to do pbp? At least for the best teams… would be appreciated

    These are the required elements for the short program, right?
    1. Intersection
    2. Moves
    3. No Hold
    4. Pivoting - Line
    5. Traveling – Circle

    So, Ice Skaters on the Isle of Wight are there reporting on Facebook. Cool

    Anyone from Golden Skate in the audience?

    Anyone have any secret live streams options? In Canada...and despite it being geoblocked, there's no where to even pay in Canada to watch.
