    I feel bad for the poor skater who fell during the wheel.

    Team Sweden 2 was enjoyable, but I thought a girl wasn't spinning like she should towards the end.

    One of the reasons I don't do Synchro (amongst many) is falling. There is a much greater risk of being injured by someone else. Either you fall over and someone falls on top of you, or they fall over and you fall over them. Those lifts scare me as well.

    Kelley was saying how Sweden 1 girls were forcing their edges. I admit I can barely see if one girl has smooth edging; I don't see how she can tell when 16 girls are doing it right.
    Anyway, shame about the fall in the end

    I agreed with the commentator who expected more energy for that type of program.

    I thought the fall was silly. Women just do not have the strength to be throwing each other around. Not surprised a fall happened. Is it worth the risk?

    Yeah, it was pretty good for a tango. Although they kind of lost me for awhile after the spiral sequence (or whatever it's called).

    Canada 2 - very good. Some of those transitions were seamless.

    I can see why it's a logistical issue to add this event to the Olympics.
    It does seem that they are stretchng it out more than necessary. I think that the ice cuts / intermissions do not need to be this long, really. Also, they could have groups of 5 (not 4) as is done in other competitions. Maybe Aggis Arena just wants to sell more food?

    They have to give time for the ice to dry. With Synchro they do have an ice referee who is calling the shots and making sure there are no problems.

    I have been to synchro events where I recall the ice cut intermissions are usually not more than 20minutes. These intermissions seem like 40 minutes. Maybe it just seems that way....

    Canada 1 - wow that was really really good. Loved that they picked the guy up at the end.

    Oh, Team Canada lost a few points in technical. That may be costly

    This is Worlds. They have to make sure it is perfect.
