Skating Updates

Mark Ladwig's heel broke off of his skate during the pairs short at 4 Continents, but Rudi Swiegler very generously lent him his skate so Mark and Amanda Evora could finish their short program.

Qing Pang and Jian Tong plan to wed after Worlds this season.

Pang and Tong are also leading after the pairs short by over 11 points.

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, in their first competition of the season, have a narrrow lead over Meryl Davis and Charlie White after the short dance. Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje sit in third, while Maia and Alex Shibutani are in fourth.

Rise is tonight, here is info from U.S. Figure Skating about the event. There will also be another showing of it March 7th in some locations.

It has been announced that Short Dance's compulsory segment next season will likely be the Rhumba. Also, Daisuke Takahashi was landing quad toes in practice in the main rink and is happy with his condition. Miki Ando says she isn't in prime condition and is somewhat tired.
