Great points! C/B have a good chance of becoming world champions next year and it sounds like they want to continue. If they are healthy and still motivated then I'm all for itI'm very pleased with the podium here:
- So glad that Christina and Anthony were able to finish their toughest season on a high and that they have some more confidence to carry them into the next quad. In a way they had the most work to do today and they delivered when it mattered. A great comeback from Nationals.
- Pleased for Daisuke but actually more so for Kana - he has worked hard but she is an excellent partner and has been a great guide for him into ice dance.
- Well deserved from Caroline and Michael - I guess now the question is will USFS still be pushing for C/B to continue when they have 2 teams guaranteed a top 10 at worlds?
I've just been watching the Free Dance (alas I couldn't watch live - work) but thankfully I could watch everything later, and I had an enjoyable evening.
I keep on being blown away by Caroline and Michael. I don't even like the music particularly but the FD in itself is just so different from everything else. I've seen the programme before, but it just keeps on being so wonderfully interesting. You just get dragged into it (and I mean that in a positive way) and want to watch and watch and watch again. Wow! And aren't they both fun people - with that interview. I can see them walking around the walls already! And I liked the friendly joking about their former partners - and siblings.
Same.Kana and Daisuke were also a joy to watch. They did a Classic piece tremendous justice with that FD. I really enjoyed watching them, and I was happy for them too. Chris asked the question whether there was ever a skater getting medals at 4CC in two disciplines. Has there been? I don't know, but it's a triumph in any case.
I was also happy for Christina and Anthony. They can still do it! Much better than yesterday, and far more interesting to watch too than their RD. And a medal into the bargain.
Deanna Stellato has a chance to win her second ISU championship medal at this event in pairs. She is the 2000 Junior World silver medalist at n women's singles.Actually, good question. Was there someone other than Daisuke to win a medal at any kind of ISU Championships in two different disciplines?
So did Kristi Yamaguchi at the 1988 World Juniors - in womens and pairs!
I actually really like their junior blues programme, it was a cute and fun choice that suited them - they sold the more swingy/jazzy blues better than Batdance (although it wasn't the best choice for them, I'm also glad that they didn't do a really hip hop heavy RD because I think that would have been a mistake - I can see what MF was trying to do here - avoid the cringe theme by using a movie with undertones of the theme instead).So we all know this program isn’t it, anyone else have thoughts on what they could do instead? I was thinking maybe classical but not soft, like Sorcerer’s Apprentice maybe.
Yay, season’s best!
Absolutely right. And so did her partner, Rudy Galindo.So did Kristi Yamaguchi at the 1988 World Juniors - in womens and pairs!
Or second. G/P's personal bests are now significantly higher than H/B's and they have more than matched them in originality and artistry of their programs this season. A year ago I would say H/B had the edge, but not any more.definitely, they're going to be the 3rd team next season
Did the post comp interviewer ask G/P if their former partners would be willing to skate together? I think P said, "Yeah, we are all good friends"Caroline Green/Michael Parsons
Green: (on winning the title in their first Four Continents) It’s just been incredible, this week has been amazing and having such a quick turnaround from nationals is definitely difficult but definitely so worth it. I feel like we grew so much as a team just from the last competition and coming into this one so much more confident in ourselves and our programs. I think it’s just really representative of the skates we put out.
Parsons: (on winning on their first ISU Championship senior level title as a team) I think the senior level championship title definitely means more to me and more to our career so I’m so proud and so happy and so thankful that we are here and we were able to skate our best and we were able to skate against such great teams. This was a great event and especially here you saw some very unique programs - both in the short and the free - and from so many different teams too. It was a wonderful competition to watch.
only time will tell, i guessLoved this skate by G/P, the best FD of any team this year on many levels, and also very impressed with M/T. Here is the video link courtesy of NBC Sports to Caroline and Michael's truly mesmerizing Free Dance: Green/Parsons 4C Free Dance Video
