    To answer a question upstream, Fancy/Boyadji made the TES Minimums for Olympics/Euros and Worlds at Warsaw Cup. They previously made the SP minimum at Lombardia, and they did significantly better in TES and PCS in their FS at Warsaw Cup.

    Isn't it 12:15pm Eastern? There's a 6 hour time difference.

    Yes, thanks for the catch! I subtracted wrongly - math was never my forte!

    I've now corrected the start time in all the other posts I made yesterday.

    Good luck to Caitlin & Hamish!

    I don't know whether to cry or be angry. Obviously, many of their technical elements were easier, but they looked so elegant out there. He has really nice lines for a male pairs skater, it's a bit rare. He also seems really strong, lean, but strong. It doesn't look like he's out of shape at all! He has a very youthful face. I'm happy for her, but I'm so sad all that beauty won't "possibly" (don't want to jinx it), be the face of US pairs. Instead we get team tacky .

    Now get married already and get cracking on that citizenship. I haz hopes.

    Why marriage? Are they dating? Marriage should not be just to get a citizenship in order to compete in the Olympics.

    I am sad that Yankowskas won't skate for the USA but I am happy that at least she is skating & competing.

    I also thought they looked very nice together. Obviously not jelled yet, but a great debut. Caitlin looked very happy to be out there, as well she might after such a long layoff.

    Here is what I wrote this AM when I first saw them skate (copied & pasted from the K&C):


    OMG, I'm in love!!!! Seriously, I love love love this pairing, they're even more balletic, elegant, sophisticated, et al than Donlan & Speroff! Yes, they only did doubles, but I'm impressed, he's just as exquisite as Caitlin, and they look like two halves of a perfect whole....



    ETA: I just now watched them again on replay here: http://new.livestream.com/accounts/1...events/2546284 *starts at 31 mark*

    Caitlin reminds me of a young Ludmilia Protopopov (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ludmila_Belousova) and Hamish reminds me of Prince Harry of Wales (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_Harry_of_Wales).

    Caitlin's arms are like "liquid gold" (shades of Oksana Baiul); she's thee most balletic female pair skater out there imho. And Hamish is so tall, handsome, lithe, elegant, and on & on. One of my new all-time favorite pairs.... *insert heart emoticon*

    a. I'm joking, chill.
    b. Some of the UK people mentioned the only possible way they'd make it to the next Olympics is if she applied for citizenship as a spouse, and even that would be pushing it time wise. I think they said she'd still have to wait three years.

    IIRC Aliona Savchenko got her German citizenship very quickly to skate in the 2006 Olympics but I don't remember how long she had lived in Germany at that point. Caitlin has only moved to the UK just now. (Before anyone bashes me) I do realize that UK and Germany are different countries with their own immigration laws, but I also know that more than one country has bent its laws to grant citizenship in a hurry to promising skaters (Belbin, for example, and I already mentioned Savchenko). The 2014 Olympics are out of the question for Y&G, but by 2018 even regular immigration procedures would be enough, I am thinking.

    Once again, the laws were not really bent for Belbin. The law was to correct an inequity in the immigration laws that happened post 9/11.
    A good rant is cathartic. Ranting is what keeps me sane. They always come from a different place. Take the prime minister, for example. Sometimes when I rant about him, I am angry; other times, I am just severely annoyed - it's an important distinction. - Rick Mercer

    On the other hand, skating with Gaman will keep her busy and at least let her compete at British Nationals this season.
    As of now, AFAIK, Yankowskas/Gaman are training in Canton, Michigan.

    I think it was smart for Y/G to focus on skating as cleanly as possible in their SP (double twist, sbs 2T, throw 2S) and international debut. They look well-matched physically and I hope they will continue to progress at their own pace.

    ETA link to official SP results and detailed protocols.

    Senior Pairs FS is scheduled to start on Saturday at 12:15 pm Eastern.

    This. Some countries bend the rules, but that usually happens in countries where the government has more unchallenged influence. Something tells me that won't fly in the UK.

    I know your comment was tongue-in-cheek but it's not going to happen. Even if they got married, they would have to live in the UK for her to get citizenship and it would still take a while.
