This and That
Volosozhar and Trankov look extremely impressive for skating together for such a short time. Savchenko's twin sister finally has a proper stem to present her. Their emotion in Carmina Burana is exceptional for such a new pair.

Anna Pavlova dominated the Khorkina Cup last weekend. Pavlova was planning on retiring, but has reconsidered. She was left off the World Team due to recurring knee issues, but competed well with a 57.300 AA total. She won all event finals except floor, with his highest score being a 15.050 on Balance Beam. Her highest score in the all-around competition was a 15.200 on vault. Results

Ashley Priess is not on floor or vault yet as she is recovering from off-season ankle surgery.
