    CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!

    Alex and Mitch were stunning.

    The contrast skating immediately after G/P was so telling. G/P were scratchy, noisy, tricky whereas Mitch and Alex just floated on the ice, their blades were quiet, their edges deep and no scraping, flying ice.

    I am so thrilled for the sound 6 point win over 4th place!

    PAUL & ISLAM WERE AMAZING!!!!

    I was holding my breath through the entire routine, but it was flawless. They were completely in the zone, and they didn't even put a foot out of place. They skated with speed, strength, elegance, flow and expression. Really, I can't say enough. I wish I had been there to see it in person. Best of all, THEY MADE THE OLYMPIC TEAM!

    Congratulations to Alexandra and Mitchell on two superb performances, and on making the Olympic team.

    Side note: I think the new free dance dress for Alexandra is a great choice. It draws attention to her and helps emphasize her perfect line.

    CONGRATULATION!!!

    I'm so happy for them, that their dream came true.

    The coaching change to Camerlengo/Krylova was 100% right, they are going to skyrocket with their help.

    skatingfan04.... our faith has been vindicated !

    I was holding my breath ,too , and fortifying myself with Bailey's left over from Christmas ( I made sure I saved it for just this purpose ) I hope they either archived the medal ceremony , or that CTV plays it on their recap tomorrow. I'd like to revel in it a bit more.

    Apparently we won't get the gala for a week or two ?

    Was any of the medal ceremony shown in broadcast?

    I'm so thrilled for them. It's always been an interesting and sometimes rocky experience to be their fan, but they had that something from the beginning and it's so wonderful to finally see it ALL come together, at just the right time.

    Thanks, the Finnstep looks a million times improved from the start of the season! Their skills are amazing and she is one of the best skaters. If this was US Nationals their FD would've scored 112 .

    For next season they will probably work on lifts.

    Thank you so much!!

    Those skates were brilliant; they've progressed so much even since the fall. And their reactions, aw man. So happy for them. It's deserved.

    It's so great to see them happy. The last few years were so heartbreaking to see their sad and disappointed faces in the KnC. The exciting thing is, that this is just the beginning for them. I'm sure there will be a lot of other medals for them in the future.

    They were great. Alex is so elegant and her posture is so superb. My friend said she reminded her so much of Katia Gordeeva. I love Paul and Piper's routine more but Islam/Paul were the better skaters this event. We stayed for the medal's and it was funny because when the awarded the trophy only the winner is supposed to step down and take a pic with it. All three teams got down instead and then they had a good laugh when they realized their mistake. They all seemed so happy for each other. I think the coaching switch has really improved their confidence and it shows on the ice.
