    ISR Shapiro / Akolzin Start 1
    Notes Music: Luna de Paris - wearing birght dark yellow with black accents him in black pants / step overhead to sideways scissor pos - no change of hands / thr 3s with a step out / 2tw is fine - low but clean / sbs 2a think he might have singled - will have to wait for replay - they show 2a on tec marks so guess I was wrong / sibs spins were quite good bit far apart and slow but pos matched very well and they were in sync almost all the time / spiral seq standard one, but ok / bids has 2 revs and started with her holding free foot then what almost looked like an axel by her on the exit / didn't really see the pair spin that ended the program because I was typing & getting organized a bit /

    FRA Pla / Bonheur Start 2
    Notes Music: Mille et Une Nuit both wearing red / music has a middle eastern feel to it / sbs 3t both stood up but she seemed to finish early - seems ok on replay / thr 3l covers good ice / bids enetered with her holding foot in front - seemed kind of short to me / a bit of chor into the pair spin that maintains center and has good speed throughout / some chor and down for a lateral 2tw - nicely done / spirals look like it takes effort for him to keep his leg at hip height / she does a shoot duck through his legs into the lift that think was a true lasso that goes to one hand / sbs spins seemed to be in sync -- sorry I'm getting a bit behind in the program trying to describe stuff - it's much harder than singles

    USA Inoue / Baldwin Start 3
    Notes Music Bird of Fire / her in red him in black with white & red on front / sbs 3z but I'm sure he doubled - wait for tech marks before I post it - they show a 2z so at least one of them doubled it / thr 3l is very nice / 2tw isn't high but clean / sbs flycam to inside edge to forward sit to upright - sync is almost perfect all the way through / nested inside out spirals start the seq / don't know if I'm just far away but there doesn't seem to be much relationships to the music most of the time / lift has 'scary' meno &sand exit / pair spin is nicely done and into the bids to end the program /

    EST Rennik / Saks Start 4
    Notes Red Hot is the music and they're wearing bright light blue / sbs 2 flips to start the program / thr 3s is very nice / toe over head to one hand - 2 hand set down / bids starts with her holding foot out in front - new fad?? Or just does it give more levels? - don't like it in any case / 2 tw is a bit low and while not crashy, not really clean either / sbs spins, sorry didn't really see them well 'cause I was writing / spirals were spirals, ok nothing special / pair combo spin was quite nicely done /

    CHN Pang / Tong Start 5
    Notes Music: All I ask of You from Phantom - Webber / her in red shading to white at hem him in white shirt & red pants / sbs 3t great sync / thr 3lhuge huge and landed right on the crescendo of the music / 2tw is lateral and high and again caught right on beat of music / sbs spins go to inside edge sit in great sync / true lasso to start with twist out covers good ice / pair spin maintains good speed and centering - nice pos / spirals again use music perfectly and have lovely shapes to them / bids starts with her holding foot in front / perfectly skated program - just lovely and right with the music all the time - can't find any fault with that program (even if I wanted to)

    CHN Shen / Zhao Start 6
    Notes Music: Clair de Lune wearing her in light peach with silver him in eing at shoulders shading to green to very dark green pants / some lovely chor to start the program and down for sbs 3t he was really close to boards and I couldsee his feet if he 2ft / both in spread eagles into true lasso to start to no hands to exit / thr 3l is great / he had a bit of trouble on sbs spins and they were out of sync after the 1st position change / 2tw - she just floats in the air with a delay on the spin / spirals are a bit slow but lovely pos & change of edge / pair spin is very nice until exit when he has a bit of a slip / into death spiral with unique entrance starting with him in spread eagle I think / they had the mood and feel of the music all the way through - everything was timed to it perfectly, but there were a couple of slips /

    SVK Bestandigova / Bestandig Start 8
    Notes Music: Christmas in Sarajevo - both wearing black / music starts out soft & fairly melodic with repeating phrase / bids with change of position / music now has a driving beat - sbs 2a he was really wild and landed on 2 feet probably short revs think she might be ok / getting behind here -- 2tw is low not sure of catch / sbs spins - didn't really see them, sorry / spirals are ok - with a couple of nice pos changes / thr 3s - landed pitched forward but held it / step overhead to one hand with one hand set down / pair spin nested camels with variation to back nested cams with a couple of too hard to describe position variations / Their previous pb is showing as 41.64

    Zamboni break now and I have to stand up and stretch -- these seats are very uncomfortable -- think hard plastic bucket seats that are 'one size fits all' that never fits all.

    RUS Totmianina / Marinin Start 9
    Notes Music: Ave Maria her in light turqoise him in matching shirt / introduced to cheers & screams that continue as they start before they die down with the music / bids is wonderful and around into the spiral seq with nice held pos that maintain the flow / the cheers and clapping are there but a little subdued in fitting with the music until a gorgeous thr 3l when the crowd errupts / sbs 3toes are great if any fault a tiny bit far apart - crowd errupts again / 2tw has nice delay on lateral spin - catch not quite as clean as it could be maybe but still ok / true lasso lift to one hand with one hand set down but no pos change / sbs spins got a tiny bit out of sync at one point I think but back in sync pretty quick - a couple of lovely positions / right into pair spin that had a gorgeous final position / surprisingly although the crowd is cheering madly I don't see many on their feet / this program was just gorgeous and suited them perfectly - I almost wish the crowd hadn't of cheered because it tended to interfere with the mood set by the program

    Notes Music: All Alone / both in black with white on top front (we've all seen these before) some neat sultry (my new word today) moves at centre ice / spiral into true lasso that moves very well across the ice / some chor / sbs 3s in good sync but something didn't seem quite perfect about them - maybe a little small or out of sync a bit on landing not sure? / sbs spins are very nicely timed with the music and in sync / thr 3l is good / 2tw is huge and airy with delayed floaty rotation / spiral sequence has some nice movfes / pair spin has nice pos and maintains speed / bids with variation by him on the entrance / and I actually finished writing at approx the same time they finished skating!!! They had the sultry mood of the music down quite well /

    USA Orscher / Lucash Start 13
    Notes Music: Still Got the Blues both in black her with 'dog collar' / a bit of chor to start things out / 2tw isn't high but very clean / sbs 3t bit out of sync and he fell / thr 3f she turned out and I think fell - too close to my side to see clearly over the laptop screen & railing - yes she fell / overhead lift - didn't see takeoff -- to star to reverse star I think with no hands - nice dismount / spirals are ok - get a bit slow at the end right into pair spinwith good centering and pos but not spectacular / bids with her changing pos a bit - not quite a flip-over I think but there was some sort of a change / sbs spins in very good sync with good pos /
