After the first flight that was the most amazing skate in the history of the sport. I think this was the perfect team to skate to start the second flight. They're boring, they're consistent, and they got through elements in that manner, and my nerves feel a bit better now.

124.66 = 1st Place

You don’t see a popped throw every day.

They are quite nice to watch though. Lots of good quality, if a little snoozy.

This performance clearly showing that this is a first year team, as compared to the quality of the elements in the short program. Much to admire after such a short time together - he did an Ina Bauer on the exit of the Axel Lasso Lift just to rub it in the face of the teams in the first group. :lol:

129.13 = 1st Place

They had less than a point and a half on the Germans after the short program, and are about five and a half points back on the technical mark (plus fall deduction). Looks like they're going to drop.

I think they did themselves a bit of a disservice by keeping this long program. This coupled with a similar style short program is too much the same. They could have benefited from trying something a little outside their comfort zone I think. They are capable skaters and I think could handle more than what they are peforming.

At GPdF the camera zoomed in for an intense close up on Sara Conti’s face and it could have been Maya Usova returned from the early 90s, so now I can’t see Sara without seeing Usova.
