Yay ! Merry Christmas ( Dec.25 , Jan.6 , or both ! ) and Happy New Year, pani. Glad you're back.
Welcome back Pani, and a Merry Christmas to you too; and to everyone who visits us here in the V/M thread. Here's hoping everyone has a safe and happy holiday season.
I, too, am liking the new thread title, and would like to thank the admins for changing it.
( I wish those looked like egg nogs )
Merry Christmas everyone , or Happy Hannukah, or Happy Solstice , or Kwaanza. Whatever you celebrate , may it be great !
More lovely pictures from TEB. FD practice, FD and medal ceremony.
This one is the cutest.
Pani, welcome back! Glad to see you changed your mind.
Happy Holidays to all of you.
Great pictures above!
Random and outdated question:Anyone have a link to the interview where tessa tears up in this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUfAQgkFa_E&feature=related I have never seen it, the CTV interview I have doesn't seem to be it!
That was during the Olympics and Tessa was being asked about Joannie losing her mom.
It's from this piece.
Happy Holidays !
In my wish-list the health for Tessa and Scott, the fd-improvement (and revision (if you know what I mean) choreography), and most of all I wish them to enjoy skating and enjoy every moment on ice (as they are). And of course I wish them continue to skate and I wish Marina let them work with Dean or somebody else ( may be with Marie-France Dubreil-Partice Lauzon for example)
I am with you! I think we need to send letter to Marina or to made bunner, like fans did for Fernandes last season something about Morozov give him freedon
Its really interesting, what they will show at Nationals and what Marina wil made for them. From last interviews i really think Scott didnt want to lose everytime.
This will be new year, maybe be 2012 will be better for them.
And i forget totell you about V-M first lift in FD. Vaitsehovskay (famous russian sport-journalis) talked with Marina and tell her. she didnt like first lift. Marina said - this i svery jazzy lift and easy, but T-S could made it shine in FD. Why she didnt try something new on D-W?
The problem is that it's Tessa and Scott who should realize the necessity first. I think Marina could help them to fit the new choreo from others, why they can not do it in this way? To stew in their own juice not a good thing for them.
Yes. And I wish that black dress for competition .
O, yes- i agree with you and i think if Marina wish them all the best she need to change something, even if she didnt want share them with other people (i mean choreograhfer)
Merry Christmas to all... I hope 2012 is the best year yet for Tessa and Scott. They seemed to have a good deal of involvement in their FD choreography this year, so I hope they don't go outside of the Marina camp... I hope they continue to let the program evolve, and I hope the judges begin to recognize how strong it is so that they feel confident in what they have created. I think it will be more rewarding that way. I think people are over-reacting... Tessa and Scott have lost the GPF before, to turn around and win the worlds (and olympics!) that same year
I'm on the same wavelength as you. They've turned things around before.
Skatebuzz will show practiece at Nationals Said, they will not show competitions
More photos from TEB
i wish i could see v/m and gordeeva skate together in an ensemble show. wasnt there such show before where both v/m and katia skated in?
just a bit OT, who is that couple that did that reverse lift (the one right after p/b from the top)? that's an amazing photo!
Sara Hurtado and Adria Diaz from Spain. It is an amazing photo! Actually they are all beautiful photos. Here's an article about Hurtado/Diaz on Golden Skate from this past spring.
The ISU says they made a mistake in the FD calculation and T/S actually won it: http://isu.sportcentric.net/db/isu_front/news_item.php?id=985
Man, I wish I was there when Scott learned of this... Doesn't change the final results, but I bet there was a fist pump followed by a big hug for Tessa.
Good news! So they will not change this last combination lift on two simple.
Its take long time to see this mistake for ISU. Why coaches and officials didnt saw this from the begining of the season?
But better later, then never.
They didnt change FD score at GPF.
I wonder how much what Scott said influenced them recalculating the scores or do they usually go back after a competition and double check everything? But like what Pani said they would have caught it earlier in that case, I don't know, but now I'm sure Scott (and Tessa too) feel validated and will feel more confident in their FD.
After GPF FD i read at few forums about this combination lift base value. So this happened not becase Scott was unhappy with there component score.
Fnd as for FD - we cant ignore Tracy Wilson words at GPF and FF FD.
So just to be clear, how would the score look now? And didn't we mention this difference between the single lifts and combination lifts way before this? How come the ISU never noticed?
ETA: I doubt Tessa and Scott considered modifying that combination lift, or at least I hope they didn't, it's gorgeous.
She said this FD will not bring gold for them at WCh.
+ 0,5 to there FD score
pani, do you have a link for that commentary by tracy?
Good new about the FD marking.......happy to hear it.
