I am going to watch the free skate pairs later.....tonight is NHK night! And tomorrow night...and Spokane next week. Who would have thunk there would have been so much skating to watch???Just turned this on and saw a young pair, Smith & Deng, move into first with a Zorro program; a bit more traditional than Smart & Diaz, in that the costumes are red and black (he has a big red Z on his back) and there is no sword fighting.
Next pair are dressed as leaves Some decent lifts though. Batam/Tioumentsev. Chris Knierim at the boards with them.
Anyone else watching? Always such fun to see young pairs. Final pair in the comp, Martins/Bedard; I saw them live, pre-Covid, on the JGP, in what I suspect was their first competition. There, they were so thrilled not to be last! At this comp, they finish second, with a Caruso FS. A fall kept them out of the top spot.
Getting ready for NHK tonight! Who needs sleep?
(In Heaven, Peacock will carry all national events too)
