So basically the only way Han Yan will qualify is if Kovtun is 7th or lower AND Samarin is 4th or lower in Germany next week (highly unlikely).
Well said, viviabond!
Bobrova and Soloviev win the SD at Finlandia by over a point! Highest tech and PCS.
65.44 total score - (they also beat Weaver and Poje in both Tech and PCS even though that's a different competition)
"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 enjoyed it. One thing I noticed though was that they seem to still be skating with a good amount of separation in between them.
I loved it today!I think it's gonna grow even more during the season.And I prefer Katia's hair the way they came accidentaly loose.She should keep it like this
Although anything is better than this
(from euros 2012 SD)
I love the SLSS to the music
With Kovtun having improved so much I'm really afraid he'll give Gachinski a run for his money this season.
I predict Maxim to make the Euro team this season.
"I'm not in this world to live up to your expectations and you're not in this world to live up to mine."
I hope Kovtun makes the Euros team: he was so fun to watch last year at JGPF.

Kavaguti and Smirnov's short program at the Fed Cup. I like it much better than at the test skates, her dress is a big improvement. They scored 67.34, the rest should be posted soon.
The venue looks really nice.
