Urbas, The Mask of Zorro
3A, 2T, 2A, SlSt, FSSp, twS, coe, 3F, 3R2R, CoSp, twS, coe, "donut", 3A2T, 3Lz, CiSt, 3S2T, CSSp, twS coe // coe twS, CCoSp, back to forward, cam, twS, coe U // sit, leg behind, U coe
Very good performance for him, but no expression, had the same spin four times.
Mabee, Tango Medley
3L3T, 1A, 3F, SSp, coe, twS, 1S, FSSp, twS, 2A, 2R, 3L, CCoSp, sit, /\,/// SlSt, nice character, 2T, CoSp, camel, sit, Y // sit, twU, coe
Nice character, good relaxed full body movement, but not much of expression and far too many mistakes.
Shibata, Adios Nonino
2A, 3L3T, FCSp, coe, donut, 3F2T, CiSt, 3R2R, 3L step out, FSSp, twS, "donut", SlSt, 3S2T2R, CCSoP, camel, coe, donut, sit //... 3T, 2A, CCoSp
back to forward camel, coe, sit, "donut" // B // sit, Y
Very serious, no emotions at all, no expressions. He has the skills to pull off the tango, but today it all has been about doing jumps.
Kovalevsky, Beethoven Last Night
2A, 3F3T, 2L2T, 3R, FSSp, coe, twS, CiSt, 3Lz, tight landing, 2S, 2A from spreadeagle, CSSp, SlSt, 2S, CCoSp, camel, sit, Y // twS, layback, CoSp, back site, twS, U coe
He was trying to sell it, but did not entirely succeed.
Gryazev, Notre Dame de Paris
3L, 3A3T, 3F, 3A fall, CiSt, CCsp, 3R, 2F2T2R, 2S, FSSp, lfS, coe // lfS, SlSt, 3S hand down, CCoSp, cam, coe, sit, lfS, layback // cam, bent camel, U coe, CoSp, back cam, bent camel, sit, Y
Nice powerful performance, not his best, but nothing to be ashamed of either.
Dobrin, Mast of Zorro
popped quad into single, 4S, 3L2T, 4S2T step out of quad, FCsp coe, upturned, donut, CiSt, CSSp, coe // coe?, 3S, 3F, CoSp, camel, sit, U coe, SlSt, 2A, 3L, CCoSp cam, sit, coe, tw U // cam
Better than in Paris, less of exhaustion in the first half and I think more triples overall. The audience was supporting him and I think virtually "carrying" him through the step sequences.
Weir, Child of Nazareth
3A, 3T, 3L, FSSp, his usual changes of positions, CiSt, 2R, 1A, FSSp, 1A, 3F, 3S2T, CoSp, SlSt, CCoSp
Rather decent performance overall, nice flow, good attack till very end, but unless he starts landing his jumps (or at least rotating and falling like Buttle), he is doomed under new system. He is incredibly lucky that the event has been such a splatfest overall.
Berntsson, Saturday Night Fever
3A2T, 3L3T, 2A, 3R, 3F2T2T, FSSp, stumble in the first half, CCoSp, 2F, CiSt, CSSp, 3S, 2A, SlSt, CCoSp
He really got the audience going, since he can move to disco very well. Overall very impressive performance, nice character throughout.
Sandhu, When Strangers Meet
2T, 3A hard fall, 3L, 2A, CoSp, 1A, CiSt, CUSp, nice one, 3F hand down and step out, 3R2T, 2S, SlSt, excellent upperbody movement, FSSp, twS, CCoSp, camel, sit, /\ // cam, sit, twS, Y
Well, suppose the elements listing says it all. Rather nice impression, because he has good basics, good spins and nice step sequence, but they would only take one that far.
Verner, Mystic Spirit Voices
3T overrotated, step out, 3F, 3L, 3S, 3L3T, FSSp, forward one, lfS, coe, leg behid, 3A step out, 3R, CoSp back to forward, cam, sit // sit, lfS,U, CiSt, CSSp, back to forw, SlSt, 3F, CCoSp back to forw, coe not held
Run out of stream halfway through the program, but still rather nice performance with good lines and character and very nice impression.
Klimkin, The Mask
3A3T, 4T (got downgraded), slip on entrance to R, FCSp, coe, upturned, 3F, 3S, CUSp, coe on both feet, 3L fall, 3S2T, CiSt, fall in the middle, did not complete the second half, 2A, CCoSp, CoSp
Much better than in Paris there he was stumbling over his feet. Good character and nice attack, but... On the positive side he is one of the few who can do change of edge in spins properly.
4T2T, 4S, 3A, CiSt, CSSp, back to forw, 4T, 3R2T, 3F, 3L, FSSp, SSp, SlSt, 3S, CCoSp
Just WOW. Really well done, he just anihilated the competition here. And a good program too. I just noticed that he lands his third "after half-mark" quad to the "Nothing Else Matters" tunes... nice irony. Indeed, nothing does if you accumulate some 10 points for that.
