    Ice Dance Preview, The Competitors

    Here's the competitive records and some videos and pictures of the competitors, where they have been available (BTW, LPIDC is the recent Lake Placid International Ice Dance Championships). Junior Worlds 2008 is still available If you are not in the US, it is also available on the ISU website, if you want to check out the performances of some of the Courcheval competitors who skated there. Also the US Nationals competitions at the Junior and Novice level are also on icenetwork, so the performances of the Shibutanis and Wolf/Ainsworth can be viewed there.

    Here is the icenetwork page where you can find the performances of the Shibutanis and Wolf & Ainsworth. You will have to refer to the order of skate to determine the position to pull the status bar to in order to find the performance you want to see.

    Link to the portion of icenetwork where the World Junior Championships can be viewed:

    This page at the ISU has your opportunity to view Junior Worlds if you are not a US resident.,00.html

    Back to viewing junior worlds. Watching the OD can give you an idea of these skaters best, I think.

    They are the 8th skaters shown in the OD coverage on icenetwork US Nationals. The OD is a great one. It is a Japanese folk dance using a fan as a prop.

    They did well at LPIDC:
    OD scored 49.43 Jr B In the same competition the Hubbells scored 48.50 in the senior competition and Crone/ Poirier 50.01 in the senior competion.
    FD 72.96

    US Novice Champions. Last year's FD to Les Miserables may be seen on icenetwork. They are last to skate in the FD.

    This year's programs:
    FD - The Matrix

    I will be adding more info as I find it, and hope you all will, too!

    I am looking to the Shibutanis, Ralph & Hill, Mysliveckova & Novak, and the Russian teams to be the class of this event. I wish I knew more about the Russian teams, though.

    There's something call the Orange channel in Europe that may have a live internet stream. Just what their coverage will be, I don't know.

    More ice dance news, from Becky Bereswill's IceNetwork blog: Lost Luggage Roulette lands on the Shibutanis! Though it seems they were able to carry on not only their costumes, but even their skates! Lucky them.
