WOW even if they didn't beat them outright, pretty amazing that A/S edged S/K in the FS. Of course summer comps aren't incredibly telling but that sounds like a strong start for A/S and a sluggish one for S/K. Considering people have been anointing them the savior of US pairs, this makes things a whole lot more interesting.I don't see the "by 20 points" in the article - it must have been an error and removed.
ETA that the official results have been published for the Colorado Championships that took place in early August - I've posted the link in the thread for the competition.
