Jamie's skills as a single skater are impressive; last year, she
competed in Senior Ladies at Canadians, and looked as if she
belonged at that level. If she and David can convert those
singles skills into pairs moves, they will have the technical
stuff to be competitive on the world scene.
Pairs at Canadians should be a VERY interesting competition! There
are a LOT of pairs who could be in the top ten at worlds (probably
not on the podium, this year... but it is possible).
And finally a pair whose performance abilities match. I found
they were really stunning together.
But there! Slap my wrist! I'd better not be tossing that
Canadian Monkey onto the back of any of our pairs!
