    This looks like the North(?) Korea television broadcast (48 minutes) of this year's show: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3j3HOJF66Q

    Plushenko's performance begins after the 9-minute mark.
    Denkova/Staviyski begin their performance around the 16-min. mark.
    Pechalat/Bourzat are at the 23-min. mark.
    Lepistö is at the 33-min. mark and Shen/Zhao follow.

    If the North Koreans could get their act together, they'd be synchro world champions by the end of next season. :shuffle:

    North Korea has made occasional forays into major skating comps and their skaters aren't half-bad. They just need exposure to international competition
