    I was at the comp this weekend as well, but missed Saturday evening events. But according to my pro, Nik and Natalia should have come in higher than 3rd place, not lower. He said he thought his dancing was the best out there actually...one opinion I know. Everyone has an opinion and is entitled to it...but no one is entitled to be so nasty - anonymous board or not, it just isn't nice.

    You're welcome, and thanks for help with the ID. I haven't seen her often and couldn't find a clear shot of her partner's back to confirm.

    Who are these Samuele Pacchini/Tone Jacobsen, bursting into dance scene like a tornado? They also scored #4 in Qubeck, just behind veteran team Igor/Julia. Am I missing something??
