    Just to add a few things. The final group was like looking at a world team. The talent on the ice was chilling. The young lady who skated for Greece is Georgia Glastris. She trains out of Northbrook IL.
    In the first group there was the 4 little cowgirl Evolution beginners. Cute as buttons. A young lady by the name of Chloe Rosin. She was great! She has a really nice spiral which I would put up there with Caroline. Then she did a beautiful spread eagle (almost half way down the ice) into a double axle.
    There were a lot of freak falls at one end of the ice for the ice dancers and the single skaters.
    I'm am trying to find info on a watercolor of Charlie and Meryl from the Olympics OD. For the original painting they are holding an auction to benefit a food bank in Detroit and the Parade Company. They also have for sale limited prints 10 giclee ($650.00), 50 artist proofs ($450.00), and 225 lithographs ($225.00). It was painted by Doug West (he has done paintings for Time, Sports Illustrated) and autographed. If your a Charlie and Meryl fan this is a must have.
    I have photos and will post them when I can.

    Thanks for the reports!
    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”

    Yes, and my ears are now burning every time I'm at the rink, OMG, what's worse, Disney music, hip hop (which I like but don't want to see a child shaking it), you name it, they're skating to it. My coach claims it helps some kids relate to the music better, which I can understand, but ouch at some of the choices.

    was great show. Lineup was incredible. For the price and seating you can't beat it anywhere.

    Did anyone happen to film the Aussie dance couple? I am sure that Greg's mum would love to see.

    Trevor is about half a foot too short to be skating with Becky, they look pretty much the same height on the ice. Their lifts look so labored and their throws get no height. I think both of them have potential to be very good pairs skaters, just not together. Becky needs to be paired with someone tall like Simon Shnapir. I do like her death spiral though.

    Pinky I posted a photo of the two of them back to back a long time ago. They are fine. They have no problems of getting into lifts. I think we have beat that horse to death.

    Thank you for the report, Theatregirl1122!
    That show had an amazing concentration of skaters I love
    I hope that Jeremy and Alissa got all the mistakes out of their system prior to the Nationals, and Tomas- prior to Europeans. And three cheers for D/W!

    Their lifts are gorgeous, especially their second lift where Becky enters backwards and then goes into a laid-out position. I think they're doing just fine in the difficulty department thus far.

    Why are you so obsessed about skater height?

    ETA: 6 more photos have been added to the gallery.
