Canadablue's Twizzle Sequences and Step Sequences Video Showing Virtue Moir and Davis White in Slow Mo

This video is from Virtue Moir and Davis White's free dance programs in the ice dance competition at the Sochi Olympics. First up below is canadablue's full video - the twizzles (the element), and the twizzles in the step sequences. It's followed by my breaking out the full video into smaller video clips and gifs. The very last two gifs from DW's step sequences are a particular mess. And of course, turns out what someone in the blog comments section insisted to have been jpg's of Tessa screen capped from the twizzle element in VM's free dance, were not from the twizzles.

Thank you, canadablue. These are wonderful. I'm going to fill out this post later but for the moment I think the videos and gifs speak for themselves.

Remember who got the GOE for these.

The full video.

    2. I second my thanks of Canadablue's incredible videos.

      I re-watched V/M's FD, and I noticed that in the circular step sequence, Tessa kicks up her leg over Scott's head; if Meryl even attempted that, she would decapitate Charlie.

    3. Welcome! The automatic thumbnail youtube produced was a micro-moment from D/W's twizzle element that was so much worse than the screencaps the D/W fan was posting - around 2:12, when Meryl is still holding her boot and her hand is up, while Charlie is done - I had a good laugh at that. (Not sure why the original thumbnail isn't showing... is this how you usually embed, OC? It's smaller than usual, and clicking the youtube icon only goes to the youtube home page, just if people wanted to watch it in a bigger size.)

      Also bringing this link up to this post since it's unlisted.

  2. I don't know whether I should get angry and smash things or break down and ugly cry.

      IKR.
      With each new analysis, each new breakdown, DW's skating looks uglier and uglier. And VM's more perfect and sublime than ever.

      The ISU is a piece of work. They really put one over on the fans and the public. No accountability anywhere. I've been following skating and icedance for more than 30 years and I've never seen anything this egregious.
