That was sexy as hell. I LOVE their new FD. It's so sinewy and confident.
I loved loved loved it. They showed some interesting positions and looked to be very fast. I can't wait to see this at Nats. Thanks for posting frisette.

Like her hair, not the costume. I guess this is not her real costume.
WOW!!! Weaver Poje new FD is very very fascinating program.

"Randy [Starkman (1960-April 16, 2012)] lived by the same motto as the rest of us. The Olympics isn’t every four years, it’s every single day. He just got it." --Canadian Olympic kayaker Adam van Koeverden
I think the circular step sequence in their FD is fantastic. I like how they're not just performing the turns, but they're also accentuating their free leg movement throughout in order to add tango feeling and expression. The end of the sequence is great where they go from moving across the ice, to Kaitlyn becoming stationary in the lunge position, and then both she and Andrew drop in perfect time to what the music is doing. Love it!
It certainly is steamier than a certain tango from about 3 yrs ago done by a top team. I like what they did with this.

I liked how well trained and speedy they looked for so early in the season. Though I wish she'd change her dress, something more in line with what Marie France wore early in the 2006/7 season for the OD (the white dress).
I SO wanted to see whta they would do this year...I LOVED their last 2 free dances.....watched them SO many times....this new one is meh for me
Maybe it will grow on me.....I am just missing the 'spark' that last two years had both so emotional and drew me in
Kaitlyn and Andrew are the latest athletes to be featured by the Canadian Olympic Team in their 30 Seconds to Greatness video series...
That page also has some great photos of them in Olympic clothing
I've just had a quick peek at the practice videos from SC. W/P produced chills with that FD, and it's only practice..
On a side note , all three Canadian couples are beautifully elegant to look at and all three look to be in good form..wow!
TSN aired a nice little fluff on W/P in between the pairs and ladies' comp. It focussed on their SD inspiration. Apparently they both love old musicals, and when Kaitlyn was injured last season, she watched 42nd Street a lot, and they thought this was a great piece of music for this year. They likened Kaitlyn's journey in coming to Canada to skate with Andrew to the story in the movie. They took tap lessons to help attain authentic characterization.
Awesome score for Kaitlyn and Andrew!
It's the first time in their careers to break 70 points in the SD and we are only at the beginning of the season!
