Am I the only one that watches their skating with the “sniffing doo doo” face? I like the idea of them as a pair but they make so many mistakes and are still always in the top which annoys me. I will say that he lifts her like she’s his baby daughter and not a grown woman. The lifts are nice… I just really know that I am watching ice skating when I see them; the act of skating on ice with an 1/8th of an inch blade and trying to do difficult tricks. They have no chemistry between each other. It looks as if two people got a dossier of elements and are filling in for two different skaters. Her blade skills are under developed (See Katia Gordeeva for amazing edges in a female pairs skater) and she jumps like a rookie. He skates like he just took his butcher apron off and changed into lycra… they relate poorly to one another and it does not matter at all what music is playing as they do not capture the mood or essence of it anyway. Pairing her to him seems like a last ditch effort to give him a career. I would almost like to see her do a Yankowskas move. Take time off, improve her skating and find a man that matches her elegance.
Am I alone?
