    Canadians - Senior Men Qual A - Report

    The marks were announced and only flashed on the board for a few seconds, so it was difficult to double check what I heard, so there are probably some mistakes.

    The following notes are what I saw while the skater was on the ice and have not been checked against the protocol for mistakes.

    The official results & detailed skater's protocols are posted on the Skate Canada website (still the start orders when I posted this but the results should be here shortly)

    Sounds like Jeff was great, but didn't put absolutely everything out there in his first skate - perfect strategy. Will be interesting to see if he tries the quad in the long. Sounds like he is right in his comfort zone - something I got the feeling he never found with his Glen Gould tribute, lovely as the program was. Can't wait to see this. With such a good qualifier they may broadcast it.
