McLaughlin and Brubaker Win Second Pairs Title

Keauna McLaughlin and Rockne Brubaker won their second pairs title in a row last night. She was fighting a virus and was gutsy even to go out there; she fell but the strength of their program and quality of the elements pulled them through. Caydee Denney and Jeremy Barrett, surprise leaders after the short, skated a clean free skate but only scored enough for the silver medal. However, they really inspired me. They fought for every move, and hopefully when they mature a bit more and get some better choreography, they'll be rewarded more for their performances (although the crowd was definitely on their side, I heard some boos after it was determined they were only in second). Rena Inoue and John Baldwin held on for the bronze.
