I'd be surprised if it wasn't anticlimactic for him; after all that chasing, and after some impressive performances along the way, there must be a letdown from earning the gold in the way that he did, uninspired, IMO. He is really better than that, but I think Olympic pressure got to him as well, and he eked it out. With some ridiculously superior jumping, of course:-), and nerves of steel. Good for him to want to stay in the game, although I have to say, I wonder if anyone will ever beat him, even if they earn the victory, given the judges' tendency to inflate his PCS scores when he had nothing going on in the way of a program. But that's another thread...
