In the RD, execution-wise P/C were perfectly fine. They changed the choreography too much toward the end and IMO not for the better. Whether that stopped judges from rewarding them or if it was too much politicking I don’t know, Because S/K’s execution wasn’t anything extraordinary. I do think it’s an excellent program, but feel that their best was at Russian test skate lol. I’m glad Nikita finally ditched that ill-fitting suit jacket.I don't agree than SinKats scores were ridiculous. It's the best they have ever skated
And P&C clearly not at their best in either RD or FD and were nervous . I think they haven't been in this situation in a while... hopefully they will be sharper at Worlds
RUS and UKR judges were also dumping on Smart/Diaz..
Wow. 3rd place for P&C from the RUS and UKR judges. RUS judge put STEPANOVA 6 points ahead of P&C. What a day.
Edit: The knives from the GPF are still out. P&C need to be careful!
