Before beginning, be it noted that if Virtue Moir fans question Davis White's high scores, it's whinging desperation. Let V/M beat freaking W/P and every other Davis White uber suddenly finds what a judging panel decides to do open to question and fair game. It's just amazing.
But not as amazing as Meryl and Charlie.
Okay, here goes. They key is to comment on the most ordinary attributes of Davis and White's program as if nobody else in skating has, does, or can do these things.
|Wow. And she's wearing a dress.*|
|This is so difficult. Except for the transitions, they're doing |
this entire step sequence one edge at a time.
|They're just - that's an incredible lift. Meryl is upside down|
and then she changes position in this same lift.*
And Charlie has to rotate while holding onto Meryl at the same time.
|The core strength!|
|Those twizzles. They're rotating them in synch.|
What makes this section stand out is their Finnstep
pattern is in time to the music.
They're smiling now!
It's just ... remarkable. It really is.
*Charlie's in a modified snow plow and Meryl is literally on her boot. Look at the blade.
*This season, we learn that no ice dancer has ever been upside down in a lift before, forget what you've been told by your lying eyes. And if they have, were they able to keep their legs straight up while clinging to their partner for dear life with both arms?
