    Of course - but it's better than them getting low scores and then even lower ones at international ones

    I don't think B/S are unaware of this.

    I'm sure their goal was just to do their SD and FD together in a competition like environment. I doubt the team takes the score seriously at all.

    Kudos to Voronov who has medaled at both of his senior B events so far, and had better international scores than some of his competitors (i.e., Kovtun) have had with national judging inflation.

    B/S's free skate. I preferred the previous music choice, and they looked quite slow in places.

    Do I hear dogs barking at the beginning of their music?

    Oh god... that needs a lot of work. I love them as a team, but that felt like they were literally just mashing in stuff from their old FD and hoping that it kind of went with the music.

    You do, so do we all. It's a hunt. Dogs are flushing B/S out.
    Leave it to Zhulin to have some dramatic quirk.
    I am not sure what to think yet; I liked how the previous music fit the program and I think using Mozart's "Lacrimosa" is emotionally manipulative, but that's my personal quirk. It all actually might work. With a strong and emotional skate, I'll be crying for that... swan? duck? partridge?

    Yes, I said UNaware. As in, I don't think they're going to take these scores too seriously.

He did not blame the inury (from the bad fall in training) for his mistakes.
    Frustration is good. It means the fire is still burning. He sounds determined and I'm glad.

    Thanks, Eislauffan!

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGGGGHHHH.

    I knew it. I f*cking knew it.

    They had a perfectly good dance and it's been destroyed. It's a repeat of P&B's 2010 Olympic FD.

    Zhulin! Go back to the old music! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I really couldn't agree more. Even their costumes look dated.

    I don't like the the slight choreographic changes either. Some of the little nuances which helped the program stand out are gone. The curve lift with her changing positions went perfectly with the music before, now it just kind of happens randomly.

    Even the footwork sequences look worse than the test skate, even though they're mostly the same in content. Slower, with far more drifting. The don't go with music nearly as well either.

    They said they knew immediately that the original SD didn't work and they needed to change it, so I'm hoping they got the same feeling after skating this FD that the music and other changes have weakened the FD. They didn't look anywhere near as confident performing this version as the test skate version, and Bobrova was stumbling all the way through.
    Even their costumes look dated.
    Agreed. Even the all black practice outfits at the test skate looked better.

    I just *knew* this was going to happen. I can only hope if Zhulin doesn't realize it himself, Tat, or someone else talks some sense into him.
