Very nice evening with very nice performances. Chinese Qing Pang/Jian Tong are the World Champions. And they absolutely deserve this title. I think it would be a very good idea for some pairs learn pair skating system in China-). Really this season was Chinese.
Germans Aliona Savchenko/Robin Szolkowy once again showed who are the best pair in the Europe. Every their program is a story. They told it in each gesture with highest artistry level. And everyone understand what they want to say with their performance. It’s easy to understand because they explain it very clear. Aliona and Robin not only feel the music – they live in the music.
I still think that Russians Maria Mukhortova/Maxim Trankov were the pair who performed for the bronze this evening. But the strange distance in points after the short program gave these medals to another Russian pair Yuko Kavaguti/Alexander Smirnov.
Actually a lot of pairs demonstrated very good, interesting and clean skating programs. Many thanks them!
