I am thrilled to heat them say that they will continue to push for Sochi and they are on the road to explore new art forms and not looking back! Maybe they should take a speed skater out to dinner and put out an article saying they worked with speed skaters to improve their speed if you know what I mean... It worked for Meryl and Charlie on "improving" their connections and get better PCS this season...
Crazy about sports!
alright guys here what i thought:
So i went to practice and tessa seemed nervous i'm not going to lie. This was one of those times that scott was calming her down instead of vice-versa. I competed as a gymnast for years and I know nerves and stress. She messed up her first twizzles but got it in the program. Scott is a very interesting character live. At the time of competition, their warmup was great. They just got out there and did there thing, went through twizzles and diagonal ss. Scott seemed to do a nice pep talk before they were called out . BTW tape was to cover laces. The crowd was so loud and there were some times in the program that even I couldn't hear the music. Everything was attack and the programed got better as time went by. They didn't get their levels on the step sequences because I actually saw some unclean edges because i was staring at their blades lol. I had a back view of them so it definitely was not obvious in any way to the normal or even seasoned viewer. Their smiles at the end of the program was the reason I was so calm driving home . They seemed so relieved especially tessa. the crowd was nuts. When they got the scores, they were releived i think. They obviously might have wanted a little higher but that was a accomplishment anyhow. They actually sat there in the KC for a bit as scott just layed back and tessa stretched out her legs. They got up left and we didnt see them till medal ceremony. When they were getting ready for MC, both V/M and D/W hugged and congratulated each other although scott intiated it first. on the podium scott held his silver medal up proudly and the top two teams seemed very chatty at the top of the podium. It was hilarious when the flowers were about to be handed out to the god medalists and instead the women messed up and nearly gave it to tessa first! she fixed it and gave it to meryl but the crowd was laughing scott and tessa seemed to just be and did not care about their placements, truly. They skated around, took pictures, took more pictures with meryl and charlie and the coaches and then talked with some volunteers and SC officials. Scott and tessa went out and high-fived all the little girls and boy (flower collecters?) i don't know what the official name is. all in all i was so happy to see them happy and so happy to see an amazing performance. I sat next to the skaters seating so i saw tessa and scott's teamates wave the flag and support!!! Kevin reynolds seems to be the most patriotic haha.
Also, B/S were awesome and i love their facial expressions! would love to see them on the podium in sochi as well as W/P. So emotional!! love those too. As far and P/B goes, there were some mistakes but i love those two. Fabian was not happy and walked off the K/C after their heard their placements. i don't blame him
I am proud of them.
Has anyone found a video of the medal ceremony???
Thanks PEZazzz. That was really nice to read
awesome post, PEZazzz! Thank you for sharing that with us. heartbroken for Nathalie and Fabian. I wonder if he might have been in some pain. He is still injured and that performance had to have been taxing on his groin.
Also wow i feel like an idiot, i did not think that that was scott's rawr at the begininng. This guy can scream holy crap it was loud! no microphone needed.
i think tessa might have felt more nervous than usual before the FD, so scott decided to do that loud growl to push tessa on
Interview with Zhulin.
Its google translation, sory.I'm tired of repeating that I've always liked Canadians, because Virtue - Moir - is a refinement. Quite different flow of the dance. I do not diminish the value of the American duo, but Davis - White more athletes Virtue - Moir - more artists. I've always liked artists. I repeat, no loss of anything, a single second, Davis - White - a wonderful, brilliant couple, do all the cool, easy, but Virtue - Moir - is a Virtue - Moir. I just love them.
I vote for ROAAAAR!
