Recently, I rewatched Tessa and Scott’s 2010 Olympic OD. I hadn’t watched it in quite a long time, and I was somewhat taken aback by just how much they’ve grown as skaters/performers over the past four years. Their speed, the preciseness of their bladework, the complexity of their transitions, the nuances in their characterizations - all of those things are leaps and bounds ahead of where they were in Vancouver. And that’s saying something because they were already brilliant back then. But IMO, the biggest area of growth has been their power. Their stroking is the strongest, deepest, and quietest it has ever been, their curves on the ice are bigger, and the entrances and exits to their elements have improved as a result.
