Grishuk & Platov
Krylova & Ovsiannikov
Anissina & Peizerat
Navka & Kostomarov
Denkova & Staviski
Delobel & Schoenfelder
Virtue & Moir
Davis & White
Denkova & Staviski made a mistake in the OD. Italians made a huge mistake in the OD. Canadians had a big fall. Opened up plenty of room for the Ukranians and Belbin & Agosto. The French had a great FD but it wasn't enough. PCs did the rest. And thus you got the same teams that medalled at 2005 worlds. And for some reason the judges were quite prepared to reward the Ukrainians.
I really disliked Grushina and Goncharov's FD. It made me want to vomit. Anyway, I think that Davis and White should go, then DenStav/Navka and Kostomarov.
Delobel and Schoenfelder have greatly over stayed their welcome, imo.
I love and admire Olivier's skating, but I often don't think Isabelle got enough credit from fans and commentators. As amazing as Olivier's blades were, Isabelle kept up with him and complemented him perfectly. She may not have had the skinny, long-limbed look of other ice dance divas, but she was one of the best as far as skating skills, expression, and dance ability. She's similar to Jayne Torvill in that regard, imo.Originally Posted by casken

She certainly was capable of incredible elegance and lines.
To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.
