This is how i would have made the ordinals
Todd Eldredge (6/1)
Alexei Yagudin (1/4)
Viacheslav Zagorodniuk (4/2)
Andrejs Vlascenko (5/3)
Evgeni Plushenko (3/5)
Michael Weiss (2/7)
Alexei Yagudin I don't know how he won this title....he had so many little mistakes in his LP. He doubled his quad, had a wacky 3Flip/1Toe, he landed only 6triples, and his Program that year did not do anything for me that year.
Viacheslav Zagorodniuk, should have went out with a medal, he had a good SP, and he landed 7triples in his LP only mistake was a doubled Lutz, had excitement and interesting choregraphy, the same with Andrejs Vlascenko, love his presentation and he also landed 7triples in his program.
Todd Eldredge fell on his quad attempt, but he still did land 8triples including 3Lutz/3Toe and 2 3Axels.
