This dress is virtually identical to the white one except for some more beading detail in the middle of the chest. According to some blog during the Olympics, the pink one was Tessa's favourite but Marina wanted the white one, saying "you can't wear pink on the Olympic podium".

Wouldn't surprise me to see her wear the pink one at worlds. But I liked the look of the white one better.

i think, again, marina is thinking of parallels with G&G. although it was on a Worlds podium, marina had the biggest debacle with g/g (that also ended their working relationship) when she had gordeeva in pink for their RJ lp. ;)

She said, because it was wedding conception of this dance. She want to bring more light in this FD.
Gordeeva had a lot off mistaces at WCh, when they skated R&J - didnt she? Maybe thats why Marina didnt like pink?

There's another thread in the Trash Can with Patrick Chan doing an iPhone video tour of his athlete's village suite - it's super funny how orderly Scott's section of the room is! The rest of the guys are typical young male slobs, but Scott has his bed made up all tidy and a bunch of fan letters taped up across the wall in an orderly fashion. Too cute! He strikes me as a very disciplined person in all aspects of life.

At team competition, when Scott was a captain of Team Canada, he keap Canadian K&C clean :D
I think this was letters from his schoull - remember, a lot off childrens was at Nationals and it was Scotts video with them?
Maybe he is so disciplined person, because they live without pearents from his teenages years?

True true. I remember reading that he stayed back alone to clean up the Canadian "apartment" at WTT.

Well, I saw really messy dorm rooms when I went on exchange a couple of years back! It really depends on how strict his billets were and his upbringing. I imagine most elite athletes are disciplined though, especially those who boarded.

Love her shoes from the Hello Canada shoot! It should be illegal to look this awesome after a week of sleep deprivation.

I don't mind the pink dress! I still think white is the best (I want her to revive the SC dress one last time) but the pink one looks fine too. Maybe they had a compromise; Tessa goes along with Marina's wishes and wears the white one at Olympics while she gets to wear the pink one at Worlds!

Off-topic: I want to see Tanith/ Johnny's room! With all the posters of Lady Gaga! :D

I was thinking that it's pretty amazing that during the last Olympic year, V&M were the world junior champions. It will be interesting to see if the 2010 world junior champions end up being the Olympic champions in 2014.

pani, can you translate Platov article for us:

Platov said.

I said to Moir - you could be two time Olympic Champion, like i am. But it will be only if they will not retried. It really hard now to made all this elements on level 4. It could be hard for your knees, thats why i think they will retried. But if they could skater in next 4 years, they could have ther same results, like i have (to be two time Olympic Champions). Its very hard with new system, but they have a chance.
They are an improbable champions. Look at there elements, there skating. A lot of people didnt like this new system, because we could see reall dance under COP. I dont think so - if people have a creative vision of the ice dance, watch, what dance they skated at OG. To be honets i had goose-skin during there perfomance. I forget - it was new system or it was old system - it was DANCE. If skaters could show this - you didnt see all this akward step sequenses you see only dance.
This system is very young. Some years ago ice dancers could made only 2-3 rotations in twizzles, but today they made 8 rotations with lifting legs ot hands. And people understand now, that twizzles is very important element. Did you heard an applause during twizzles today? Before people didnt know nothing about this element.
I like 3 perfomances - V-M, D-W- they have super FD and skated with greate power and emotionals. I tought they will be a champions, because the beat canadianse during this season. And i like Domnina-Shabalin perfomace - they was better, then at ECh.
In old system judges gave marks, because they like this program or dont like. But today you have your marks for elements. If you made element - you will have 5 points. If you cant- you will not have 5 points. Thats all.

I want post, that during video interwie journalist said to Platov - its interesting, that most fair joudging was in ice dance.
Platov answer - yes. I agree with top 3. Maybe i had questions with top fibe.

Sorry for bad english

Thank you Pani for the translation.

First time I fell in love with ice dance was because of G&P, second time because of V&M. What a treat to see Evgeni appreciates V&M so much :)

Me too! I keep thinking this song would be so ironic, or whatever you want to call it, depending on your opinion.

How about "Lovegame?" :P

I think that V&M could become two time Olympic champions myself but it depends on what they want (unfortunately it's not all about me :D). I'm waiting to see what Scott and Tessa's plans are for the next year (I'm not even thinking that far ahead to 2014). As good as they are now, they have so much more to show with their skating.

Thanks, Pani!

It's great to see that support for them from a 2-time OGM, someone who's probably literally seen everything in ice dance.

Perhaps they might work with him in the future on a program? I'm not familar with all the teams he's coached, so I'm not sure I've seen much of his choreography.
