    Is anyone else getting the video from pairs rather than ladies? If this keeps up it will make me nuts! At least the commentary is for the ladies!

    Yeah... I still see pairs pix so far.

    Here's the latest (read from the bottom up):

    BY PAUL MARTINI:

    19:10 EST STELLATO: PRE: 5.2 to 5.3
    19:10 EST STELLATO: Marks TECH: 5.1 to 5.2
    19:10 EST STELLATO: Skating first and currently 6th, it will be a while before she knows just how this program will hold up
    19:09 EST STELLATO: Must be remembered that she is just moving up from Junior and she has made a good impression
    with this performance
    19:09 EST STELLATO: It was too bad she missed the last jump for aside from the fall on the 3 loop, this was a pretty good
    performance from this young lady
    19:08 EST STELLATO: final spin
    19:08 EST STELLATO: two foots the landing, but gets in the second 3 lutz and then falls on the 3 toe
    19:07 EST STELLATO: Hard fall on the 3 Loop
    19:07 EST STELLATO: layback spin, well centred
    19:06 EST STELLATO: spirals
    19:06 EST STELLATO: Slow section
    19:06 EST STELLATO: GREAT opening
    19:06 EST STELLATO: good speed in the combo spin
    19:05 EST STELLATO: good 2 axel
    --commentary missing? 3flip?--
    19:05 EST STELLATO: nice flying camel
    19:05 EST STELLATO: solid 3 salchow
    19:04 EST STELLATO: Nails the 3 lutz double toe combo
    19:03 EST STELLATO: Diana glides out with a rather sombre look upon her face
    19:03 EST STELLATO: Stellato is up first
    19:03 EST STELLATO: Warmup is over.
    19:02 EST STELLATO: Yoshie hits a nice 3 flip - 2 toe
    19:02 EST STELLATO: Poth hits a 3 toe
    19:02 EST STELLATO: Hubert has hit very little on this warmup
    19:02 EST STELLATO: Under 1 minute in warmup
    19:02 EST STELLATO: Stellato falls again on the 3 lutz
    19:01 EST STELLATO: Stellato falls on a 3 lutz
    19:00 EST STELLATO: Bellemare a solid 3 flip
    19:00 EST STELLATO: 2:45 left in Warmup
    19:00 EST STELLATO: Youshie in white, Stellato in lavander, Bellemare in red, Poth in white and Hubert in a rather unusual
    dress, flesh and denim, hard to describe in words
    18:58 EST STELLATO: Bellemare a 2 axel, Hubert a wild 2 salchow
    18:58 EST STELLATO: Poth hits a 2 axel
    18:58 EST STELLATO: Judges being announced
    18:57 EST MARTINI: House announcer calling the first group to the ice

    18:56 EST MARTINI: Very few empty seats left to fill
    18:56 EST MARTINI: Welcome music is playing
    18:56 EST MARTINI: The crowd is clapping in anticipation of the event getting under way
    18:55 EST MARTINI: Hubert of France and Bellemare of Canada are both right at rinks edge looking like they can't get on
    the ice soon enough
    18:54 EST MARTINI: The first group of women have entered the entrance area and are just off the ice waiting to be called to
    begin their warmup
    18:53 EST MARTINI: The building is looking as though there will not be an empty seat in the house which means that there
    will be approx. 5,000 people in attendance
    18:52 EST MARTINI: The judges have taken the platform and they are settling in getting their pens and papers in place.
    18:51 EST MARTINI: We are about 5 minutes from the first event of the evening, the Ladies final.
    18:51 EST MARTINI: Good evening everyone and welcome to live coverage of the Ladies and Mens Free skate final here at
    iskater.com

    Again, read from the bottom up..

    BY PAUL MARTINI:

    19:25 EST POTH: Marks: TECH: 4.3 to 4.9 PRE 4.7 to 5.4
    19:24 EST POTH: The panel will place this between Deanna and Annie
    19:23 EST POTH: She gets in the 3 toe and salchow, and the program presentation was ok, but it needs some more sell and
    confidence projected
    19:22 EST POTH: scatch spin
    19:22 EST POTH: final combination spin
    19:22 EST POTH: another 2 axel
    19:22 EST POTH: hits a 3 salchow
    19:22 EST POTH: flying camel spin is of average quality
    19:21 EST POTH: diagonal footwork
    19:21 EST POTH: speed into next jump, single lutz
    19:21 EST POTH: spirals
    19:20 EST POTH: 2 flip

    19:17 EST BELLEMARE: Diana Poth is one the ice and skates next
    19:16 EST BELLEMARE: She knows and the crowd knows this was a very poor skate, one that every skater has had and
    wants to forget as quickly as possible
    19:15 EST BELLEMARE: 2 loop, there is not an iota of confidence left in this performance and with only the 3 salchow, it
    gives the panel very little to evaluate
    19:14 EST BELLEMARE: 2 lutz
    19:14 EST BELLEMARE: two foots the landing of a 2 toe, was to be a 3
    --missing commentary?-- (sometimes it refreshes before I see it!)
    19:13 EST BELLEMARE: BIG pop on the 3 flip attempt and then hits a rather tight 2 axel
    19:13 EST BELLEMARE: footwork is somewhat slow
    19:13 EST BELLEMARE: layback spin
    19:12 EST BELLEMARE: falls on what was to have been a 3 lutz, was a 2 and she still fell
    19:12 EST BELLEMARE: Pretty piano music as she sets up for the a opening 3 salchow, well done
    19:11 EST BELLEMARE: Annie comes to just off center ice to begin her program

    19:38 EST HUBERT: Second group waiting to be called for warmup
    19:38 EST HUBERT: Like Bellemare, this program does not give the panel much to evaluate, likely she will finish 9th overall,
    which is where she was after the short
    19:37 EST HUBERT: then does a waltz jump where a 2 axel should have been
    19:36 EST HUBERT: singels a 3 salchow
    19:36 EST HUBERT: big speed again,but steps out of a 3 toe

    spin she closes a fairly well skated program
    19:29 EST ONDA: Steps out of a 3 toe that should have been the front jump of a combination
    19:28 EST ONDA: good 3 salchow followed by a layback spin

    19:52 EST MANIACHENKO: She was 4th, but this will not likely hold her up
    19:51 EST MANIACHENKO: The panel is being pressed to evaluate a program that after the opening lutz combination, did
    not have much go right about it

    20:09 EST KWAN: TECh5.5 to 5.8 Pre 5.7 to 5.8 She leads
    20:08 EST KWAN: Having done Keri, Masters , Skate America and now here, she has done a lot already this season
    20:07 EST KWAN: She looked a little tired at times and it showed mostly in her jumps. One has to wonder if two events in
    two weeks was a bit too much for her?
    20:06 EST KWAN: This was a very good effort at making the best of a program that was not in the grove so to speak
    20:06 EST KWAN: 3 toe and final spin.

    20:04 EST KWAN: 3 salchow

    20:03 EST KWAN: 2 flip
    20:03 EST KWAN: big speed into 3 toe 2 toe combination
    20:02 EST KWAN: layback, still could use some speed
    20:02 EST KWAN: 3 lutz 2 toe
    20:02 EST KWAN: 3 loop may have been 2 footed

    Default Re: Irina wins.....

    That's okay, folks. 1 week is not a lot of time to make improvements, and Michelle and Frank know what they have to do. Considering the circumstances, this is probably the best scenario (with regard to final standings). At least Kwan knows she has to skate cleanly to win and that her artistry alone may not be enough this year. There is no "comfort zone" left, and this is good incentive. You win some and you lose some, and the times you don't win, you learn from the losses and move on to better performances in the future.

    This is just my humble opinion, but I'd rather that Michelle place 2nd after a flawed program and realize what she needs to do. I'd feel worse if she had won and taken it complacently without having the "message" hit home and without inspiring her to make the changes. This is just what she needs right now -- the motivation she feels is missing.

    GO MK!

    I agree- this is a good time for Michelle to realize that she needs to improve both technically and artistically (since she cannot depends on her presentation marks). At least this happens early in the season and there is time for her to work on it before Nationals, GPF and Worlds and even more important before 2002 Olympics.

    I know Michelle wants to maintain a balance between school & skating. But maybe she should consider concentrate on skating for the next 2 years to have 100% focus on skating which she needed to compete in SLT.

    Just my 2 cents....

    Default Its ok

    Three golds and one silver so far this skating season--not bad I'd say, and if someone had to win besides Michelle,-----who better than Irina whom most of us (including Michelle) like a whole bunch.

    Default Re: Its ok

    Kwan does not want to put all her emotions on winning....
    in short she wants to be prepared, if she does not get
    the gold in SLC.......I think this good mental judgement.
    You have to be ready to lose to win. Keep competion in
    perspective....
