Milania VAANANEN / Filippo CLERICI 🇫🇮
Bad to the Bone by 2Wei, Bri Bryant

3Tw2
3T
3LoTh (fall)
3Li4
CCoSp* (Filippo misses camel catch, loss of sync)
StSq2
FiDs4

SP: 48.56 (2nd)

This team had to spend some time out of competition while Filippo got his citizenship. They are still very green, but I think they have a lot of potential as they become more seasoned.

3Li4 (really fantastic, almost ran into the boards)

CCoSp4 (out of sync on sit, regained on upright)
StSq3

I am so impressed by how quickly this team has gelled. They are looking so strong, and much like Peng and Wang, they still have so much time ahead to continue gelling. Minerva is SELLING this program too.

This team makes me so nervous... I really hope they can stay healthy and safe. That step sequence was fantastic, so clearly this team has a lot potential going forwards.

I don't believe that Mark mentioned Michelle Kwan AGAIN in connection with the music! Is he too stupid to vary the script, or what?

Come back Chris Howarth all is forgiven!

In my opinion, Mark is one of the best commentators we have had in recent memory. He is well-researched and informed, kind, and unafraid to point out both the good and bad in a program. :)
