Okay I don't remember Man and Shadow. Let me take a peek.Oh really? I think they could ditch another element in the pairs LP, but I must be honest-- re-watching these 4:30 mens and pairs programs on youtube is a serious slog, in most cases. As attention spans get shorter, there is no reason for any long program to be more than 4 minutes.
I confess I completely forgot Stolbova/Klimov were coached by Mozer. Indeed, they had some spectacular programs, and I agree the Man & Shadow program is an IJS masterpiece. To this day, I refuse to believe Morozov had anything to do with the choreography.
If they looked at each other or didn't look so rough when they did their lifts and pair elements I'd be blown away. The program itself though is great.
