Was that opening ceremony fairly brief? I logged off to switch servers and when I logged back in, the zambonie was on the ice :)

The Austrian team is lovely. Looks like one skater had a fall though.

Great to see the guys on these teams! Last year Turkey had 2 or 3, and Mexico who isn't here had the same as well plus a few others.

Japan was lovely, but heartbroken for Canada's Supremes :(. It was a rough outing for the US's Crystallettes as well...

Yes. Throughout watching this event, my admiration for synchro skaters has increased:luv17:. Ice is slippery and timing can make it more so :yes:. But these teams skate lovely, impressive programs even with the missteps :clap:

It was sad for both! So many falls on the splice thru?! I believe it has a different name now. My sister skated at Canadian Precision Champs back in the late 70s. Much different style back then. More like the Rockettes in NY!!
