It frustrates me that they can’t at least tame Katsalapov’s twizzles. But S/K’s superior qualities over S/B are fundamental. Sinitsina is a much stronger skater and natural mover than Stepanova. Katsalapov is also a much better dancer than some people here give him credit for. There’s official BTS footage on YouTube of the whole competition and a close up really shows the classically elegant hands and arms that he is capable of. The clarity and intention is best of all male ice dancers today.
