Navka & Kostamarov? I really must be missing something. They are quite competent, but that's all I'm getting. Nothing more. I don't even see such great edges, and I'm left emotionally cold by their performances. I'd love to hear from the experts on what makes them worthy of the gold. Are they so much better than everyone else, or is it a matter of there not being anyone INCREDIBLE on the dance scene at this time?
Even though I don't really see the fine differences among the dance pairs, up until now, I've always been able to at least see what makes a pair GREAT--like Anissina & Peizerat. Now I'm lost. L/W linger in the 6-8th place in World standings for years, suddenly they win World bronze. C/S, on the other hand, go from World bronze to oblivion. Have they actually gotten so much worse in such a short time? Is it the coaching change? Have all top couples suddenly gotten THAT much better than they?
Curious minds want to know.
