Looks like Alina's skirt is going to be a problem tonight. It seems to keep sticking to her back and not going back into position, whe keeps pushing it down with her hand.

Heck it might be a factor

Gannon just said this is the last night of skating, do they not have an exhibition skate for the medalists anymore?


Edit: just checked, they have the gala skate on sunday. Virtue and Moir will skate to Tragically Hip, which is pretty cool

If I were an Olympic figure skater I’d come out to some Teeth Like God’s Shoeshine by Modest Mouse or something. Spice it up a little.

I’m here tonight only for the Russians. Bring me the Russians.

yeah clicked on to see you already responded. Obviously he meant to say competition. That is a huge fan favorite and moneymaker. No way they would cancel that.

That feels like an overscore. Unless we are going to see the Russins go up into the 240s

Then again, maybe they were just sick of the fact everyone else up to that point was just bad

This girl looks like she should be playing with my 9 year old niece. Got to check the birth certificate

That was great but Medvedeva is going to have more components.

Very back loaded on the jumps.

156 and change, with 75 in the components, just below Kostner there. Remember that 80 is the perfect component score - 10s across the board.

Koster beat her in every component score except program execution. Katelyn Osmond is looking really good so far. Wonky step out there on the 3Lz.

Beautiful. Gorgeous.

In any other year, this wins the gold. But this year, it's silver. She's down 1 already from the short, down 3 in components, and a perfect 80 in components won't get her there. She'll be off by one point.

I think she'll eke it out on components.

Oh, I thought she was closer than 3. I dunno then.
