Okay, that was a good start. That split lift position is awkward enough for most pairs, and yet they felt the need to do so with a bent leg position. It's unfortunate because it's the last element, and she's capable of such nice positions.

65.25 = 1st Place

Curious that Peng is only getting a level 2 on the twist. He's not getting her very high and she's not getting a fast rotation. The SBS spins were very nice, however.

Some ups and downs for Melania & Filippo. Not quite as "Bad to the Bone" as they would have liked. Melania looked great in that outfit though.

Aside from the fall on the throw, this was a really good performance. The quality of the elements after such a short time together is really remarkable.

63.59 = 2nd Place

Some really nice elements from the Germans. That music, however, is better for an exhibition as it does nothing to highlight any of your elements.

Aw...shame about the fall. Otherwise, a nice skate from Minerva and Nikita. At least, we aren't discussing her color of underpants this year.

3Tw 2 - poor catch
3Sq - her landing was very tight
Throw 3S - fall

Ch Combo Spin 2

3 Lift 4

Forward Inside Death Sp 4

The elements where they stay on the ice - footwork, spins, death spiral - are very nice. A struggle with anything where she leaves the ice.

55.99 = 3rd Place
