    Here we are...

    Did anyone get the chance to look at the protocols? Their technical levels were ridiculously good! I think this was definitely the breakthrough they needed (this and their success at Nebelhorn). I also think that this is going to be a huge confidence boost for them, which is so important. Especially since they had two straight skates without major mistakes. I think that if they can get their confidence back, it will help relax them and bring out more of their character in the programs (which really is the only thing they need to work on for the FD IMO).

    Welcome Golightly!

    To answer your question, this was their career best FD score and overall score. Their career best SD score was around 60, which they got at Nebelhorn a few weeks ago.

    PER - 7.25
    CH - 7.33
    IN - 7.21
    TOTAL: 43.27

    Think they achieved pretty good levels overall and getting level 4 on 2 of their final 3 elements (both rotational lifts) bodes well for them. Here's to hoping they stay healthy and UPRIGHT when they skate.
    Crazy about sports!

    I know you don't mean this, but to clarify the final ChoreoLift is automatically a level one no matter what. They basically got level fours on everything except their footwork, and getting level three on both bodes well for them definitely.

    Congratulations to Alexandra and Mitchell and their fans - that was one beautiful skate of an FD for sure. And a good score to boot. I think their components score could be higher if not for the fact that they don't have an international name yet. Hopefully they will go to Olympics and that will come with time.

    I now see that this team doesn't have another gp event (yet). Shame, I'd love to know how they stack up against Orford/Williams and Gilles/Poirier.

    Man I hope they make it to the Olympics. I love this team and I love their programs this season. Congrats to them & may they finally have good fortune rain down on them.

    Great comeback for this team in the free. While I could see the issues in the short dance, I was a little startled at the score and their placement relative to the field. I'm glad they were rewarded for what they did in the free dance, particularly that the judges responded to what appeared as much stronger footing for both of them compared to the short.

    Their programs this season are sophisticated and technically demanding and just need to be grounded in consistent basics. That's not unusual for a team that has a great deal of talent to where some aspects of their skating, athleticism, partnership develop or pre-exist on a more advanced level than others at first. This team are strong dancers and capable of intricate work on the ice and they just need to keep their feet secure and do the drills that make that happen. I'd rather see real skaters like this, occasional issues getting into the ice as there may be, than skaters who try to work around the blade work altogether.

    That FD was so satisfying... It's just a shame they don't have another international outing before Canadians..I hope they can nail down that third spot.

    I hope so too. That would be a classy team, presuming everybody
    stays healthy, knock wood: Virtue Moir, Weaver Poje, Paul Islam. I'm hoping (and, I guess, expecting) Paul Islam to stay in for the next quad. It's a shame they only have the one GP this season. They seem to be a team that just needs to get out there to strengthen their results on the international scene, and that isn't helped if they get caught in a Catch-22 sort of assignment protocol that limits their opportunities.

    Was that a career's best score for them?
    No. It's an international and ISU best score for them, but they had a free dance score of 92.43 at Thornhill in 2012.

    Nevertheless, this was a great accomplishment for them. I think it's what they needed to convince the Canadian judges that they are serious contendors for the third spot.

    I really like the confidence that they displayed here in the free dance.

    It seems like this team always makes mistakes that takes them out of the running. At Nebelhorn they had a lead and let it slip away and finished 3rd and at SC they were 7th after the SD. They are to good to be finishing behind a team like R/T but they have to stop making those silly mistakes. It cost them last year when they finished 4th and couldn't go to Worlds.

    They're training with a team that used to do that too (Weaver/Poje), so I have hope that they will learn mental toughness from their training mates.

    We could use a title from one of the pieces in either their short dance or their free dance (Isu bio with listing of pieces):

    - From their short dance, 'Crazy for you'
    - From their free dance 'Dance for Me'
    - or the one I like the best, from their free dance, 'Going Somewhere'

    Why do I find that you slam every Canadian skater?
    I think they had a great free and early season nerves. I think skating with weaver and poje will help their training and polish them . I see a bright future......
