Honestly I don't get all the hype around this team. And I don't get why everyone is so desperate to see them as Olympic champions or medalists in 4 years. What if they have dull programs? What if they stop developing? What if they become the next K/N or D/S?
and what about D/W and V/M? why does everyone think those teams won't be there, or won't be that good any more in 4 years? they are all still so young!! why putting so much on the teenagers, when you have those under 25 wonderkids still growing in front of your eyes?!
To be honest, I would rather see I/K and S/S stay in juniors for one more season at least. They would have more time to grow. Putting so much pressure on so young skaters is terrible.
And I/K are not as impressive as I thought they would be when heard how delighted everyone was about them. Their SD in unwatchable and their FD lacks emotion. They surely still are juniorish. But that's not a bad thing! Ice dance couples grow slowly and the most beautiful dances still come out from the most mature/oldest teams. I love 30 year olds in ice dancing, cause their emotion is real. All teenagers can do is amaze us with their sweetness, like the Shibs. But then it might be difficult to grow out of the sweetness and in the end we get the sugary Mahler as Olympic gold winning FD
