note

i'm not feeling well and i don't feel up to putting together the regular blog posts. plus, hersh's article just put a huge damper on this competition.

also, practises weren't really open to the public so i don't think there are any practise videos.


"just brilliant ... daring and confidence. total professionalism. just gorgeous, from first beat to last. long time running -- i wish it was even longer.”

tessa and scott are recognized by an MP in ontario's provincial parliament (youtube)


"The defending world champions were the class of Skate Canada International here again during Saturday’s free skate at the Brandt Centre — twizzling, lifting, stepping, spinning and emoting their way through a sensual, dramatic and athletic Moulin Rouge program to emerge with a win and world record overall score of 199.86.

Their four-minute free dance is a feast for the senses, and though the connection between Virtue and Moir is obviously rehearsed for months on end, its genuine. It’s clear they love skating together, and they’re all-in on the substance and emotion of this long program, as well as the journey to a third, and likely final Olympics. The fact that Moulin Rouge also racks up the points is a bit of a bonus.”

"It’s certainly rewarding. We have been working so hard technically and I think all that paid off when we stepped on the ice even for practices here and just felt very solid in all of our turns and all of our technical elements."
