Not to mention W/C fell on the pattern dance section of RD in Lake Placid. If not for that fall, I think they would have won the event. Their scores have been improving since summer competitions. They would have medaled here in Russia if she didn’t have that fall on twizzles in RD. Hopefully the falls are out of their system and the sky is the limit!Well, Wolfkostin/Chen beat the Browns at Chesapeake and JGP Russia, beat Lavrova/Gart at Chesapeake and Cannon, beat Ales/Tsarik at Chesapeake, Cannon, and Lake Placid. Beat Tkachenko/Kiliakov at Cannon ETA and JGP France, Ling/Wein at Cannon and Lake Placid, beat Lin/Sletten at Cannon and Lake Placid. They lost to DelCamp/Somerville at Lake Placid and to Nguyen/Kolesnik at Cannon, but otherwise haven't been beaten by any other American team all season. The only JGP team they haven't faced is Cesanek/Yehorov, but W/C's JGP scores were both 7-8 points higher than Cesenek/Yehorov's. W/C's SB is second of all American Junior dance teams thus far, seven points ahead of the next American team. I think that's solidifying their spot near the top of Junior American dance. YMMV.
I believe they would have been third if they had not fallen and if Davis & Smolkin had not gotten a basic on their spin. Which is irrelevant, since both happened. W&C have very nice potential. (I was totally rooting for them). But they are also brand new and have a lot of experience to gain. They skated beautifully here after they had taken themselves out of the competition in the RD. But they've splatted in 3 of 6 competitions this season so it's not exactly uncharacteristic. More a part of the process. Learning where they are relative to each other and learning how to compete. The potential skating quality, though, is very nice. Moments of wow! and moments of ow!Not to mention W/C fell on the pattern dance section of RD in Lake Placid. If not for that fall, I think they would have won the event.
They have only been skating together a few months. Most teams take years to develop this kind of unison and difficulty. If you watch their skate blades you can see they skate really close together (she tripped him up in the Short).If Green/Parsons hadn't had a fall in the RD at Lombardia, they might have wound up on the podium---the fall cost them about 4 points.
Thanks!!!! On first view, I really like it.Video I took of Madi and Evan's RD practice in SLC:
Thanks again! Not sure about the music, but definitely some interesting, different moves in there! I’m also super impressed that they have very much reinvented themselves in the past few years. It’s wonderful to see!Madi and Evan's FD practice part 1
