    And he asked if V/T were going to the Games. The rest of the interview was also a bit...
    Not good performance for V/T again. Hope they can skate brilliantly at the Olympic.

    They are the National Champs, and so yes are going. I think they are solidly now Russia's no2 team.

    She looked lovely, and, if I'm not mistaken, a bit healthier (=less scarily thin) than in the past.

    Aljona Savchenko should be expecting 3 big birthday gifts today:
    - By the skin of their teeth, GB keeps 2 spots for next year: 13+15=28.
    - Estonia as well, since they finished in 10th and just get a second spot for next year.
    - Italy keeps 3 spots (4+8=12 - 14 would have meant they lose a spot)

    Israel comfortably earns a 2nd spot, so no gift necessary!

    I feel so bad for V/T. What an epic meltdown. I prefer their SP though. JCS is just weird somehow and doesn't evoke the emotion that the beautiful SP brings. I'm glad that they lost the LP. They shouldn't have won it with S/K skating as wonderful as they did. Sad for the Italians that they couldn't get a medal here. Now Sochi is becoming more and more interesting. It is all coming down to nerves I think. The problem is once the first mistake happened to V/T you could almost feel that they were starting to think about what they were doing. All the lightness was gone.

    I think Bazarova/Larionov had a look at it too, they looked really unhappy on the podium...

    Interesting point I heard regarding V/T's free program on the German live stream. After their side by side spin they are posing and 'resting' for more than 20 secs (both their feet are on the ice) which supposedly is a rule violation and should get penalised. If this is the case, than there are obviously different scoring rules for them than for all the others.
    Anyway it gives them a huge breather half way through the program. In comparison S/S are skating without this break.

    Oy. Poor V/T. Such a brillian SP then a FS meltdown. Hopefully they regain their early season form.

    Yeah it's true that they have a pause of about 20 secs, but they are not standing for all that time with two feet on the ice, so I don't think this can be regarded as a rule violation, although I'm not sure about how that rule works.

    Stolbova/Klimov are the next great pair. I'm stoked for them - I've adored them since their last junior year - they've always had terrific choreography, so to watch them nail it like they did in the LP is cheer inducing.

    V/T's break is not a rule violation so much as something that should hammer at their PCS. But we've had this debate before.

    I'm really happy for Ksenia and Fedor, they skated really well today and the judges finally gave them higher PCS than B/L. I hope they can medal in Sotchi.

    V/T were disappointing today. Let's hope they do better next month...

    @ 136 points for 3 errors including 2 falls. How awkward would it be if they won the Olympics with that FS?

    If by awkward, you mean hilarious, then very.
