Just got back from the evening dance practice in Nice. Tessa and Scott skated to "Funny Face" in the black training outfits, looking wonderful, relaxed and confident (constantly laughing and joking - Scott was the one doing the joking, it looked to me.:) ) They only did the beginning, up until the first step sequence and then a part of S'Wonderful, including the second short lift. No combination lift, though I was hoping to see that. Also, the ending movements and pose are slightly changed - but not much, the feeling stays the same. They also did the twizzles twice, very very well, while the other skaters were performing their programs. They ended with their usual bow to Z&S.:)

On a side note, the practice rink is an absolute freezer, I had a shock when I stepped in there. Like suddenly entering the North Pole. I'm still feeling :cold:.

Meryl & Charlie and Maia & Alex weren't there tonight. Kaitlyn and Andrew skated wonderfully and got the biggest applause from the journalists in the rink.

wow, what a picture they got here :swoon: Scott resembles Mikey Rourke :P in these practice sessions Tessa looks radiantly seductive and Scott very very macho. :eek: they did improve their expression a lot! i bet they'll skate with such an aura in those two days! the King and the Queen :P just sit and enjoy the show! i hope they're having a good time in their safe, pleasant little bubble <3

thanks a lot for the report, Ioana! VERY appreciated!

I haven't quite hit upon the right word for it yet, but that first article makes me feel a combination of a little bit bittersweet/melancholoy. I hate that injury has impacted their career the way it has. Also, the 12-year-old buried inside of me doesn't like to think about them retiring down the line. (Although, once again, it sounds like they're inadvertantly saying they'll be around for a few more years.)



i hope they're having a good time in their safe, pleasant little bubble <3

I hope they are too! :D

Also, Ioana, thanks for sharing your practice report. :)

ETA: I think the Icenetwork article got this part wrong.

The next time they faced Davis and White, at the 2012 Four Continents Championshipslast month in Colorado Springs, they snapped a four-event losing streak, defeating their training partners for the first time since the 2010 World Championships.

By my count, they only lost 2 competetions to D/W since 2010 Worlds. V/M won 2010 Worlds. Their next competetion was 2011 4CC. They had to withdraw, so that doesn't count, IMO. They had the gold stolen from them at 2011 Worlds. That makes 1. Then, there was the 2011 GPF. That makes 2. They've won everything else they've competed in. Even if you count 2011 4CC, that's only 3. The icenetwork article make it sound like they lost four in a row to D/W or they lost 4 in a row, period. Neither of those things is true.

How do Lynn Rutherford and icenetwork/USFSA figure Virtue and Moir broke a four event losing streak to D/W by winning 4ccs? Wasn't it only two events?

I think that may be the first time I've actually seen them (or most teams, actually) do a full run-through at an early practice. Given that they look like that even as you can tell they're holding back a little, they look to be in fabulous shape. Good tweaked ending as well.
