    Technical Problems

    04.12.11 11:00

    Due to technical problems we are not able to upload the Free Skating videos of the category Senior Ladies as fast as we used to do. We totally regret this delay and hope to solve the problem as soon as possible. Our router broke down yesterday. That`s also the reason why programs of the category Senior Pairs are missing. And we know, that there are still some programs of other participants missing, because our video program broke down sometimes. We recorded them also with another recorder and will try to upload them in the next days. We are sorry for all skaters whose programs are not uploaded to youtube until know.
