    THought I'd bring over practice report from IoanaC and link to pictures from marikat for the new thread.

    They always take such great photos in Russia.

They looked like they owned the ice, although the "young lions" Elena and Nikita were quite aggressively marking their territory. Not necessarily in a bad way, but they were very "in your face". Tessa and Scott were very quiet and calm, every move was ample, every edge perfect. Can you tell I'm in awe? (I have to admit, though, that I cannot tell the polka steps one from the other, so, although they looked great, I've no idea if those damn key-points were met).
    And yes, Pani is right, there's the extra pressure of every official from the Russian fed. All smiles and friendliness, but who knows what realy happens behind the scenes? All the judges were here as well, I don't think I've ever seen so many at a practice.
    Fingers crossed for tonight, may they skate like they just did.

    Ioana talked about ample movements, that's what I love about the new SD. it marks a difference from other SD's that are very quick and perhaps frantic. also, i wish too that officials didn't show all this warmness, it doesnt sound good :-/ have a great time Ioana and Pani!

    IoanaC, what do you mean by marking their territory? Did they not move out of the way for other skaters when they were skating or something? Or were they doing A spins?

    I heard that in the golden days the ice dancers used to purposefully whizz past each other at the highest speed and then stop just short of hitting the others or wait until the last minute to move. The purpose was to intimidate and show you were the most confident, I guess. I think it used to happen with A&P and FP&M, maybe G&P and K&O also.

    I think that was a lot better than SC.
    Have to see the individual marks. Dont think they had all their levels.
    Hope they get someone to bring all up to level 4.

    70.65 for Tessa and Scott
    I'm still not sold on their SD, but I'm super excited about their FD!
    I think I just don't like the concept of their SD. I think that they skate it amazingly, but it's not for me.
    Although their YP was great! On the second pattern, they almost reached the barriers on the other side of the rink because their lobe was so big!

    Definitely the class of the field.............so much better than SC. I love all the little details, hand movement, facial expression, not to mention the actual skating. Good for them...........now the levels, and they will be working on them to be sure.

    They will have their levels as time goes on . Better to move forward like that for them. Mark therefore were good without their levels.
    One step at a time. Cannot wait for tomorrow.

    Their SD today looked much better than at SC. Glad they changed the lift. I'm loving this program and music and think it will be gorgeous by Canadians/Worlds. Hope they can get those YP levels up.

    SC:
    YP1 was a level 3 with GOE of 1
    YP2 was a level 2 with GOE of .79
    COR:
    YP1 was a level 2 with GOE of .93
    YP2 was a level 3 with GOE of .79
    So it seems this is something that still needs working. However, since SC their RoLi went from a level 1 to a level 4; their STw went from a 3 to a 4 and their NtMiSt went from 2 to 3 so that's three areas that they have levelled up. Still room for improvement in their GOE on each of the elements.
    PCS -- a slight increase from 37.37 to 37.5 and there seemed to be a wider spread between the upper and lower GOE given by the judges at COR compared to SC although Tessa & Scott did get a couple 10s today.

    Personally, I'm not too worried now that I they have finished the SD (kinda hold my breath when they skate) and see there is still room for improvement in levels and GOE. Personally, I lurves this SD.
    Crazy about sports!
