I am just glad that the judges are finally seeing their qualities and judging it appropriately. I was happy with the judging in this competition,since P/I got the highest PCS (and highest Skating Skills mark in both segments),which IMO they deserved.
I also love their effortless and soft skating,but I also fear that this will be a problem one day, as it is with V/M sometimes.
P/I didn't appear in the gala streamed on Eurosport, so I'm not sure that poster didn't mix up another team with them.
That's what I was afraid of..
I hope we hear something -- medalists are generally obligated to skate unless there's a serious excuse.
Nooooo...please. I hated those costumes. ..To each their own , I guess.
But I , too prefer Alex in more vibrant colours.. or even just some touches of deeper colour. For example ,I think it would make a world of difference to that pink dress if the flowers and neckline frill were done in one or two just slightly deeper or different shades of pink. That would keep it from washing out quite so much.
Did anyone happen to catch the Skate Canada practice live streams today? P/I looked awesome! So fast, smooth and confident. Their FD run-through was gorgeous. I can't wait to see their SD tomorrow!
Their practise looked great...I didn't notice any glaring mistakes. Here's hoping they do well.

I thought it was lovely too, but I thought they got buried in the marks. I thought they should have been a few placements higher. The judging scared me for V/M.
I think P/I can consider this a job well done!
Their FD was awesome.
Such a pity that they didn't perform their SD like this,otherwise they could have been 3rd. They had the 3rd best technical score in the FD, so Krylova/Camerlengo seem to work for them. They just have to improve their consistency.
Exquisite.......I loved it, and it was so nice to see them move up in the standings. They, like V/M, are so smooth and beautiful to watch. Wonderful matching lines and the flow across the ice . I'm happy for them to see some progress. I hope they are the 3rd team to go to Sochi. (Pulease Skate Gods!!!!)

Posting for the first time here (I think?) I want to say that I was very impressed with Paul and Islam today. That program is gorgeous. Was that a career's best score for them? I honestly believe that Paul and Islam have the best blades on that field after V-M. They just need consistency and attack. If they can get those two elements working? I think Canada's place as a leading force in ice dance is secure. I hope they make it, I think that Olympic experience will make them grow even more. So, good vibes to them, I am a fan
