I've loved these two since first watching them at the ARD Gala On Ice in 2003. They are the artists of Pairs skating. But since Tatiana & Maxim have teamed up they have lost more & more ground on the pair from Russia. Why ?. Are they putting too much into landing the throw triple axel ?. After COR it looks like they may have to stop trying that. I have to say the I enjoy watching both teams but love the Germans more. It would be heartbreaking for them to lose another Olypic Gold after 2010 when they lost form when the Chinese returned. And now they have to go up against the top pair from Russia at an Olympics in Russia. Do they really stand any chance ?, or will they battle the Chinese & Canadians for Silver ?. They could end up being the Kwan of Pairs skating. 4 European titles & 4 World titles but no Olympic Gold. What can they do to get their levels up & get the judges back on side ?.
