FOr American Fans.
the real news is ...
Punsalan and Swallow in 6th (yes, you read correctly 6th).. wouldn't this
potentially be the highest placing at worlds for an american dance pair
since... um, would have to be.. Susan Wynn and Joseph Druer in 1989 (or
was it 90... the year they did the Charleston I think).  THIS is way
cool... above both Lobacheva and Averbuch AND ROmanova and Yarashencko
(who I think they judges are trying to give "THE MESSAGE" to, but will
see, their 4th at CSF was a surprise).

The question I have is, after such a spectacular start for Lobacheva and
Averbuch at Skate America (even to the point that Sandra was all e***d),
what has happened since?  Have they simply fallen apart.... have the
others simply put it together? what gives?

BUt this TWO_PLACE LEAP for P&S is potentially THE news of this
championship!

It was more a tap-dance sort of thing, and that was in '90.

True--but I don't know what *has* happened to L&A, or whether this will
last through the whole championship. Guess we'll just see...

Trudi!

THanks for the info on Susan WYnn and Joe Druar, but I was referring to
the OSD (or was it OD by then) which i know one year was charleston,
because Isabelle Duschesnay had the boa and all that rot and TOTALLY
mis-interpreted the style of the dance (and this critique coming from a
native son.. ;)

THANKS!

The Charleston was the OD in l989. Toller Cranston commentated for CTV
that year [his last?] and said that Wynne & Druar had the best example of
a true Charleston. Worlds were in Paris that year, and Isabelle did wear a
boa. But the best Wynne & Druar did was in 1990 where they were 4th at
Worlds and won the bronze at Goodwill Games. Grishuk & Platov were 5th in
1990 BTW.

Gryshuk and Platov teamed up in 1989, so the 5th place wasn't too bad in their first worlds.
