Long live the Queen and her successors
While I admit that my absolute faves are Sasha and Mitya I do also love Nastya and Sasha, I'm happy with the results. Finally some endorphines for my system
i doubled my workout to avoid that or better to don't feel to guiltyOh don’t say that. All this working from home caused me to gain weight, so a week ago I locked away all the Sinterklaas chocolate I have in the house, promising myself I wouldn’t touch it until December 5 (ie Dutch Sinterklaas celebration).
Now I wanna grab that chocolate and DIG IN!!!
As a fan of both of them (though more partial to B/K), if both are 100% clean then B/K will probably take the lead with PCS, otherwise it's literally going to be a fight for every point. Like a lost level on a death spiral could cost one team the win.Tbf, I don't think Mishina and Galiamov, brilliant as they are, stand any chance when B/K skate like they did today
I think it's designed specifically that way to try and make to two things happenWhat i like very much about it is how they finished all the required elements somewhat sooner and the end of the programme is watching an exibition and not a competitive programme
Is that what's in those silver wrappers they have in ALL the KnCs, here and at the Cup events? It's been driving me crazy.
Are there no T/M fans here? Give them a good classical piece, and they are glorious.

Marina has done fantastic work with them and they have definitely improved but I still wish they went to Tamara. With their basics and her creativity it could have been magical!They're fabulous for sure, but they aren't as consistent as Madame Moskvina's teams. That's probably why they keep on being left out of the conversation
3. Can we please ditch the requirement for the lady to grab her skate blade in lifts? Please, PLEASE??? So many needlessly ugly and awkward positions. I always imagine the point of lifts initially in pairs skating was to covey the idea of flight. Now we have girls twisted into little donuts practically sitting on the man's head and one has to wonder what the point is anymore.
I don't believe the blade grab is required. They do it because it's like an "easy" way to get levels. Good old Star lift or Stag lift just don't yield as many points as those ugly crotchety blade grabs.
1. You are correctIt’s Jeroen Prins. His specialty is Pairs, IIRC
I am not sure why he is here, though. Is it a requirement that there is an international judge or tech controller on a panel? Russia is code orange for Dutchies, so he would have to self-quarantaine for ten days upon return.
Actually I wish he were in the Netherlands doing commentary on the Eurosport stream. I really don’t like the English one, although maybe it’s just because I am not used to hearing commentary anymore, period.
Oh, now, see, that is interesting! Thank you, I had no idea that was the case. I didn't realize there is such a difference between the TV channels and the Player.3. Eurosport has no rights for broadcasting, except for OWG 2022. For the Eurosport Player stream I guess they take the international commentating.
