Scoptova/Aleshin: She has lovely use of arms and hands. Nice matching movement. Seamless. Not as in your face as other teams, but refined and precise. Well done.

Carreira/Ponomarenko: New dress for her: much better than the previous multi-colored, ruffly thing! Big mistake for him on twizzles. Foot down. And they are disappointed.

BLR is one of the 'replacement' judges for the FD. But with the resignation of Gorojdanov, BLR doesn't have an ISU-level judge for ice dance. What happens in this instance?

C/P better worry about the Greens coming up fast behind them if they stay Junior next season. I see the Greens starting to win next season if they keep improving and considering they are the youngest of the top teams they have nowhere but to go but up.

And at the beginning of the season you saw Carreira & Ponomarenko winning everything ahead of them. It's a different challenge to win when all the pressure and expectations are on a team's shoulders. Has to be learned through experience, and as I said at the beginning of the season, C&P have never been in this position before.

The Greens skated well today, as they did at Nationals. The pattern is their strength.

Actually, I would say the top 10 skated really well. Enjoyed the final two flights immensely, with the exception of that last oy moment.

Demougeot & Le Mercier had a great finish for themselves as well. Marton & Szemko had the most solid SD of their season. And I was hoping Ichilov & Davidovich would be a bit higher, but glad they made the FD. Will miss Ning & Wang. These two have more of a feel for the music than most junior Chinese teams I have seen.

Ooops, you are right! Although I imagine they were planning to move up, since they won Junior at Nats and new quad and all.
Don't know. Might depend on their chances to earn a GP. Because the Junior FD base value dropped this season, they won't have a top 24 SB score. Also probably not a top 24 world ranking. All of which could be overcome with enough openings via the Olympic turnover. I expect teams ranked lower to get in. But there are currently 7 U.S. dance teams ranked above C&P on the SB and the World Standing list. Maximum number of dance invites given to U.S. dance teams this season--with ALL teams earning a top 24 guaranteed berth--was 13. Even if the Shibs don't skate next season, that doesn't mean Carreira & Ponomarenko get a spot. (Maybe if Chock & Bates get out too). C&P have personal ties with three different host countries, plus Igor. But think they'll still have to earn priority ranking with USFSA. They could go head to head with McNamara & Carpenter, the Parsons, & Pogrebinsky & Benoit over the summer for a Skate America berth.

But the rest of the GP assignments will be done first.

If Carreira & Ponomarenko return to the JGP next season, they can earn their own way onto the World Standings list. Think it's within their power to control their own destiny that way.

Good point. I wish the ISU would reinstate the rule that guarantees a GP to any JGPF or JW medalist (which I know would require expanding the fields back to what they were, which I'm not convinced is a horrible idea). I feel like the current situation, w/o the rule, is causing a logjam at the Junior level, both nationally and internationally.

Haven't the Grand Prix fields already been expanded to what they were - they went back 12 singles, 10 dance, and 8 pairs.
