3LoTh
3Li4
CCoSp2 (out of sync, feature mismatch, struggles on camel)
StSq3
FiDs3

SP: 58.71 (2nd)

This team snuck under my radar but soooo much potential, that lift was scarily fast. It's really the spins that need work, and that might be the easiest element to fix.

Maria MOKHOVA / Ivan MOKHOV 🇺🇸
Benise Malaguena

StSq2
3T<< (nasty fall for Maria)
3TwB< (not enough height, messy catch)
3TTh (2-footed)
3Li3
FiDs4
FCCoSp3 (out of sync but regained it by the end)

SP: 42.65 (4th)

This team is very well matched, as demonstrated in that step sequence (I promise I'm not copying what Mark says we just have the same thoughts). The elements seem to be a struggle though.

I think Maria was the one who was injured and it seems like she is still struggling. I am glad they kept the program as it is a very good fit. Stay healthy and just hang in there.

So the Canadians had a difficult journey to get here. I can imagine the glare coming from Deanna's eyes.
