    Thank you Sylvia, it didn't make sense for it to be in the other thread. Congrats to Tobias & Stagniunas.

    Wow. Wasn't expecting this positive outcome for Tobias. Glad the uncertainty is finally removed and she and Stagniunas can focus 100% on Europeans and then the Olympics. I have a feeling we'll see some inspired skating from them.

    I'm absolutely thrilled for them. On the plane to Detroit for SA, I sat beside two of her family members. They said she was really worried about the outcome. I told them she was such an attractive young lady. They said she was beautiful on the "inside" too. I'm so happy, happy, happy.
