2016 Skate America Friday Events
Just a couple of thoughts from the events on Friday:
- Mariah was the highlight for me. Haven't looked at the protocols, but I'm assuming there were some underrotations in there to explain the score.- Mao's program was very sophisticated, but I prefer when she uses softer and lighter music to match her ethereal style.- Mai was adorable.- Loved Gabrielle's music (shout-out to the Kween, Michelle Kwan!)- The pairs scoring was suspect. How did A/R score higher than Marissa and Mervin and Valentina/Ondrej? I thought their program and skating were sloppy all around.- SO HAPPY for Haven and Brandon. Love their step sequence and the fact that they skate very close together through a lot of it. Haven looks positively radiant over being back in competition.- Marissa and Mervin looked fierce and were really selling the program until the lift mishap. Their footwork was also a highlight for me.- Tarasova/Morozov have great skills, but I wish they had more excitement to their skating.
