I'm so happy for Meryl and Charlie! cheers Gold at last!!!

Hard work and never stopping practicing in the last 4 years really does pay off! I hope the same happens to Mao too Many Hearts

The Canadian media is still very focused on the rumour judging scandal between Russia and the U.S. Apparently, the inventor of the Finnstep- which V/M got penalized in the short, thought that D/W were the ones who actually made the mistake, and that V/M should have led...

I think she's doing 3a, 3f+2lo, and 3lo in the SP and 3a, 3f+3lo, 3lz, 2a+3t, 3s, 3f, 3lo in the FS?


Yes, except her SP layout is 3a, 3f, and 3lo+2lo. And her LP layout is 3a, 3f+3lo, 3lz, 2a+3t, 3s, and 3lo+2lo+2lo.

Close enough  lol!

Actually, you're SP layout is what Mao originally started out with in SA, but changed it at NHK.

Thanks roma. I just realized that Mao is doing 3f and 3lo twice in the LP.

Thanks everyone for the layout replies. You're truly wonderful.

Does anyone think that getting 80+ is possible in SP, if Mao executed everything perfectly?

Hopefully,  but that depend on the judges and if they want to reward a clean Mao with record breaking score, or leave that for Yuna or Julia.

Depends on the judges. We saw at GPF a clean one was most likely 77+. But... she had a level 3 on one element and the GOEs given to her weren't up to the level of her other skates. It's like deliberately giving her lower GOEs -- like her steps only receiving 1.5. If she skates really clean and gets all the level in Olys then I believe she can break 80.

Sorry, but Tessa and Scott LP performsnce was lovely, but it does not touch Davis and Whites's LP. I was absolutely wowed when I saw their performance at Nationals. Didn't feel that wowed with T/S.

I like their performance, but D/W LP is more OGM worthy this time around.

I didn't see I/K because my sister got a hairband stuck in my hair, and I had to cut it out.... and I liked B/S's program a lot better the first time they did it...

Hey guys, this thread is getting too long so I'm making a new one for ladies competition. Will lock this topic a few hours before ladies SP begins.

Also, a big welcome to Otchoto de mus :3! Hope you enjoy it here!   sunny

V/M's FD was beautiful and they skated it perfect. But I'd still choose D/W's FD over it. I feel like V/M just used the same romantic theme again. Now, if it was a battle between Carmen, Scheherazade and Black Swan... that would've been a sight to behold!

Funnily enough, I've always felt that V/M's FD was just a reinterpretation of their Mahler.
Now, I am liking I/K but how could they be 8 pts above B/S?! Oh wait, I think I know. Because they did a Swan Lake... in Russia?!  Unconscious

Actually, Caro telegraphs all of her jumps, it's why I never understand why she receives such a high score. Even Yuna lands some of her jumps close to the 1/4 UR rule. It's very difficult landing pristine clean jumps while skating to a 4 minute program. i never understood why Mao is so hated. She has always been a great skater, but in the past 4 years, she's improved so much, while others either kept what they were always doing, or became worse.

What I don't understand though, is how can all those ex skaters who are now commentating, jump on Yulia wagon so eagerly. Hello, they're proffesionals, they of all people should know and see what's wrong with her technicque, her tiny jumps, she practically stops when she lands them. They were bitching about Zhenya's score (yeah it was much too high) but at the same time, they were absolutey amazed by Yulia, and her 73 SP score and 141+ LP score was fine. Really?

What is telegraphed jumps? And who is Zhenya? You mean the Russian rhythmic gymnast who won 2 OGM?

Telegraph=long jump preparation. IIRC, telegraphed jumps would be -1 to -2 GOE on the element. Most skater from 6.0 era have telegraphed jumps. For current skaters, I believe Carolina is one of the most common offenders.

Zhenya=Plushenko. The name Zhenya is the short form of Evgeni in Russian.

I am happy with the final medals, Davis and White deserve a gold medal and Tessa and Scott had their gold medal in Vancouver.
i/k great, but I hope they get better programs in the future, their swan lake is so cheap and predictable   Disappointed  

I absolutely adore their Surviving Picasso FD.  Dance  Love Hearts  Swoon  Amazing.

And finally someone who doesn't think I/K's Swan Lake is the best masterpiece they've ever seen, like my family does.  Rolling Eyes  The more I tried to explain to them that there's more to Ice dance than pretty girls and dramatic music, like technique and transitions..., the more they went on how amazing I/K were. Some even suggested they should've beaten V/M. affraid 

I really liked the French team, no way was that program 5 points lower than I/K.  Evil or Very Mad

THIS. It's the same romantic thingy they did in  Vancouver and for the past 4 years, just on different music.

@pearlyriver, as klarification already explained Zhenya is the short form of names Evgeni and Evgenia. The same as Sasha is for Alexander and Alexandra.
