>>LET’S HAVE A WARM WELCOME FOR HAVEN DENNEY AND BRANDON FRAZIER. >>Terry: TWO SKATERS FROM FLORIDA. THEY WON BACK IN 2017. 3.15 POINTS OUT OF THE LEAD. NOT A LOT OF GROUND TO MAKE UP. HAVEN DENNEY AND BRANDON FRAZIER. ♪♪ ♪♪>>Tara: OPENING WITH A TRIPLE TWIST.>>Johnny: BEAUTIFUL. BEAUTIFUL CATCH, BEAUTIFUL AIR POSITION, BEAUTIFUL HEIGHT. >>Tara: SHE’S BEEN STRUGGLING ON HER SIDE BY SIDE JUMPS THIS WEEK. COMING UP RIGHT HERE. FLYING INTO THEM. HE SLIPPED OFF THE TAKEOFF. IN PAIRS SKATING IT DOESN’T MATTER IF ONE OF THE PARTNERS LANDS IT, WHOEVER MAKES THE MISTAKE COUNTS FOR BOTH. ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪>>Johnny: THERE WAS TWO DOUBLE AXLES IN SEQUENCE. HAVEN ONLY COMPLETED A SINGLE BOTH TIMES. THE COUPLE WILL BE JUDGED FOR TWO SINGLE AXLES, EVEN THOUGH BRANDON DID GO FOR THE DOUBLE.>>Tara: SHE HAD EXTENSIVE ANY INJURY IN 2013, MISSED THE FOLLOWING SEASON. SINCE THEN SHE’S STRUGGLED TO GET HER CONFIDENCE BACK, ESPECIALLY ON THE JUMPS.>>Terry: MIGHT HAVE BUMPED THE ICE A LITTLE BIT THERE. ♪♪ ♪♪>>Johnny: I LOVE THIS PIECE OF MUSIC FROM THEM. IT’S SELECTIONS FROM THE IRREPRESSIBLES. I THINK PAIRS ARE THE MOST ADVENTUROUS OF ALL THE DISCIPLINES IN CHANGING UP THEIR LOOK EVERY SEASON. I LOVE THIS LOOK FOR THEM. >>Tara: OF COURSE THEY’RE THE MOST ADVENTUROUS, THE GIRL IS LIKE, SURE, CHUCK ME ACROSS THE ICE AS FAR AS YOU CAN.>>Terry: AND DO THAT. ♪♪ ♪♪>>Johnny: EXTREMELY DIFFICULT ENTRY INTO THAT LIFT. EXTREMELY DIFFICULT LIFT.>>Terry: THEY DEFINITELY FOUGHT. THEY FOUGHT FOR IT. I WILL SAY FROM THE START OF THE PROGRAM, AT THE END YOU COULD SEE THE EMOTIONS COMING OUT. THEY WENT INTO AUTOPILOT, WHICH IS GOOD. BUT I THINK IT TOOK AWAY FROM THE SPONTANEOUS EMOTION YOU LOVE TO SEE IN FIGURE SKATING.>>Johnny: I REALLY ENJOYED THAT PERFORMANCE FROM THEM. THEIR ELEMENTS ASIDE FROM THE SIDE BY SIDE JUMPS WERE SO GOOD. SHE FOUGHT FOR THAT PERFORMANCE. THE SIDE BY SIDE JUMPS WILL LEAVE AN IMPRESSION WITH THREE STRONG TEAMS STILL TO COME. >>Terry: IT’S GLARING, ISN’T IT, THAT MISTAKE. BUT IT’S A PROGRAM THAT BUILT THE SECOND HALF AND GOT SOME MOMENTUM AND THE MUSIC BUILT AND THE AUDIENCE STARTS TO GET INTO IT. WE’LL SEE — YOU SEE THE GREEN — THE RUN OF GREEN AT THE END OF THAT PERFORMANCE. >>Tara: THEY GAVE AWAY 4.4 BASE POINTS FOR SIGNALING THAT DOUBLE AXLE. THAT COULD MAKE THE DIFFERENCE OF WHAT COLOR MEDAL THEY GET OF ANY. >>Johnny: SIDE BY SIDE TRIPLE SALCHOWS. LOOK TO BE A TOUCH UNDERROTATED. THEY BOTH LANDED ON TWO FEET. THIS IS WHERE THEY WERE GOING FOR THE DOUBLE AXLE DOUBLE AXLE SEQUENCE. >>Tara: I FEEL SHE’S LOST THE ATTACK. BACK IN THE DAY SHE WAS SO AGGRESSIVE. SHE WOULD JUST FLY AND LET IT GO. NOW I FEEL SHE’S A BIT HESITANT.>>Johnny: HERE A MOMENT THAT WAS A LITTLE BIT SCARY. POSSIBLY HIT HER HEAD. A LITTLE BIT CLOSE THERE. BRANDON CHECKS IN, ARE YOU ALL RIGHT?>>Terry: IT WAS CLOSE. I THOUGHT INITIALLY SHE DID MAYBE TOUCH THE ICE, BUT IT LOOKS LIKE SHE DID NOT. HE THOUGHT IT, TOO. >>Johnny: THEY’RE CALLED A DEATH SPIRAL FOR A REASON. THEY’RE REALLY DANGEROUS AND REALLY DIFFICULT BUT WHEN COMPLETED BEAUTIFULLY THEY’RE AWESOME.>>Tara: SO CLOSE.>>Terry: A COUPLE OF MILLIMETERS. >>Johnny: SHE’S FINE.>>Terry: WOW. SAYS THE GUY SITTING IN THE BOOTH WITHOUT SKATES ON. >>Johnny: I CAN’T SAY I’VE NEVER DONE A THROW JUMP OR A DEATH SPIRAL MYSELF. THOSE GUYS ARE BIG ENOUGH TO CHUCK ME ACROSS THE ICE. THERE’S SOME SCARY MOMENTS THAT CAN HAPPEN. BUT YOU CREATE A SORT OF TOUGHNESS WHEN YOU’RE A FIGURE SKATER, ESPECIALLY THE LADY IN THE PARTNERSHIP. >>Tara: I WOULD NEVER BE TOUGH. I DON’T WANT TO BE HIGH IN THE AIR, I DON’T WANT MY HEAD CLOSE TO THE BLADE. >>Terry: YOU DON’T WANT ANYONE ELSE INVOLVED IN YOUR RESULTS?>>Tara: NO, I DON’T. >>Johnny: JOHN SILVERMAN IN EUROPE WITH THE NEW EUROPEAN CHAMPIONS.>>Terry: ZIMMERMAN CONTINUING THE CONNECTION WITH THE TEAM THAT WON THE BRONZE IN 2002, THE LAST WIN FOR THE U.S.>>THE TOTAL COMPETITION SCORE 201.64. >>Terry: GET OVER THE 200 BARRIER, YOU TAKE THE LEAD BUT YOU’VE GOT THREE MORE TEAMS TO GO. REMEMBER HOW CLOSE IT
