i was thinking about their performance some more and it seems to me that perhaps their focus was to get the RD out in front of the judges.... and they have perhaps not focused enough on the FD since it's an old program...sometimes, this can come to bite you as you start doubting your training... anyways... not worried about them... and on top of that, they are continuing for worlds in montreal and this is not a "final olympic year" for them...Really like their RD, which highlights their strengths. I would ditch that FD immediately, though. When they took the ice at Lombardia my first thought was, thank goodness they ditched those cartoony costumes. But with normal costumes the dance almost looks worse, because the old ones at least put the thing in context and gave you an idea of the story they were trying to tell. Now it’s just—weird.
Agree with the Colonel, this is team that should not be considered mid-pack, but as fighting to move into the top tier. Two years ago I was convinced that they were a real threat to Piper & Paul for the top spot in Canada! I don’t see that right now.
It’s time for them to step up, and I say this as a fan.
