My friend is there, as a team leader for Fintastics. They measure fever every other day, said she.

Who is doing the commentary on this? He is absolutely great. I've only been watching and listening on and off and the female commentator is also good, but I find the male one especially notable.

I've never really watched before, but I am enjoying watching the later groups

Wait, that was just a mistake right, Team Fintastic Junior is not really representing Sweden I assume?

I have to admit I am in tears. One of the skaters in Fintastic (the tall dark-haired girl on the ringht end in the front row) is a daughter of a close friend, who is their team leader there. This season has been hard to all to Finnish synchro teams,due to the other teams' coaching situation. Kudos to Fintastics, I am so proud of them!

The actual score reaction was kinda meh, but the drama close-ups later were awesome!
I consider!
Thanks so much for suggestion!
(Right in time btw, MESS is already done)
The young lady who reacts first, is my cat-carers younger sis, my close friend's youngest. You just have to, Da Bossmann!

The male commentator was Chris Buchanan, the former chair of the ISU synchronized skating technical committee. :eek: He was incredibly knowledgeable!

The top 3 teams all had really good programs. Fintastic had such a creative concept.

I thought it was interesting that the 3rd place Russian team that fell 3 times changed into their short program dresses for the medal ceremony :drama:

Watching it now and really enjoying it. Can’t believe I haven’t bothered to watch any before!!! Loved both Russian teams’ SPs. It’s sad the Spanish team had to WD due to ********, but hope they get another chance next year.
