    Pairs - Free Program - Notes from Rosaleen

    Please don't post in this thread (it's easier for me), use the thread for the event marked 'comments'. Thanks

    Sorry everyone, technical difficulties getting set up again in the arena after going to the press room to work for the 2 hours between ladies & pairs, had to re-boot my laptop twice. Think I'm about ready now and don't know if I'll actually see the next 2 teams but I'll try.

    Notes didn't really see them skate, busy getting organized but have to comment on his light gold lame pants - they look like gold tin foil - her skirt is made of the same thing but there isn't as much of it. They were skating to Prince of Egypt

    LAT Boguslavska / Brovenko Start 4
    Notes didn't see them skate, had to make a ‘personal’ trip – the lineups for the ladies here are worse than anything at home and there isn’t a ladies except the regular public ones <G>

    I'm back now, though and the next group is on the ice for their warm-up

    Notes Music: Samson & Delilah Costumes: her in mauve with lots of glitter him in match cross-over tunic top & dark pants / soft opening music has nice light beat and they're around for the 3tw which is relatively high but not the tretiest catch / sbs 3t both clean him turning forward a bit quicker than her into 2t / thr 3f is clean / and back this way for sbs 3t that I think are clean - he may have brushed free foot going through / overhead lift to star to carry with her doing a hand stand on his thighs / spirals are nested inside out or outside in into her in Y / bods with her exiting in catch foot / some chor now to music I'm swaying to / toe over head to no hands star with nice exit / a bit of chor into sbs fly cam back sit out of sync near exit but spins had good speed / thr 3s she might have put a hand down / music is building now hip lift to sideways star with nice turnover exit / sbs steps she had a problem near the beginning not quite sure what happened / bids start with her holding skate / pair spin with him in camel her in variations change feet to a semi sit by both facing each other / pretty good program but I didn't get drawn into it, possibly because I'm so busy writing what they're doing - pairs takes a lot of words to describe <G> /

    Notes Music: Moonlight Sonata Costumes: dark royal blue almost purple / familiar piano and some chor at centre ice to start / around to me for sbs 3t turns 3t he fell out of the 2nd one / 3tw is lateral and highand floaty so I thought it was only a double / sbs 3s he had a wild free leg and she seemed to finish early - not sure if she doubled / thr 3l was too big and she fell and slid / one hand press lift with change of hands / some chor in front of the judges / sbs flycam are a bit far apart and got out of sync for a revs or so near the end / bods doesn't really get down low enough with variation on exit / some more chor at centre ice / they're really moving with the music though / thr 3s way pitched forard on landing and hand down / true lasso that turns one way they the other with nice pos variation by here / spirals are almost all her and I see why he can barely get his leg up above his hip / bids doesn't last long enough for me / some more chor or maybe it's their strt steps - yes it has to be / the crowd is very silent - but that intense kind of silence / nice lift that I can't really describe / pair spin as music fades to just a few chords / now I know I can get into a program tonight while still writing because I was into both this program and Inoue and Baldwin's -- that's part of why I can't really describe the last lift / pb 98.72 / 55.75 from the short /

    Notes Music: Katiusha Under Moscow Skies Costumes: the brightest fluorscent green I've ever seen him with black pants - huge ovation from the crowd as they were introduced / music starts with trumpets then very quickloy into driving disco type beat (in my old fashioned terms) crowd is clapping madly / huge lateral 4tw but crashy catch orignally had it as 3tw that’s why the catch wsa a bit crashy / sbs 3t she was pitched foraward but clean into 3t think she 2fted / crowd is clapping so loud it's hard to hear the music at times / thr 3f / sbs 3t she might have 2ft again / lasso lift that goes into carry with him in spread eagle / bods / and I'm caught up again as music changes and slow and they do some chor at centre ice / now a bell tolling and ahhhs / thr 3l - she fell / spirals outside in with her in beillman the again with her in leg to side / lasso lift to one hand to change hand to her lying upside down and him going to one foot glide / sbs flycam sit open leg where lhe lost it change to other foot and I can't remember what they did / music picks up ans crowd is clapping madly and a sort of 1/2 lift I'm not sure what it ws supposed to be / another lift that I can't really describe then a bids with variations that made it look like something went wrong but I'm not sure that it did / pair spin with her bent under one of his knees (like Bere/Sikh) / I'm not sure what to make of the program -- in some ways it seemed to me like a series of tricks and not a real program like the last few teams have had. It was difficult, maybe too difficult - not sure what I mean, much less expecting you to understand / pb 113.51 /
