    Men's Free Skate - Japan, France, and uhhhhhh

    Well with Johnny Weir out their are now only 4 men competing and only 3 medals which means one will be left off the podium. Who will it be and can Brian Joubert continue his dominance this season?

    Here is the start order:

    1 Johnny WEIR USA 5 67.60 (withdrawn)
    2 Nobunari ODA JPN 4 69.15
    3 Alban PREAUBERT FRA 3 71.63
    4 Daisuke TAKAHASHI JPN 2 79.99
    5 Brian JOUBERT FRA 1 80.75

    The four are the top skaters in the world and Preaubert is sandwhiched between them. It's incredible that a second tier skater has zoomed to be among the best in such a short time.

    According to someone at FSU, Takahashi appears to have injured himself during the program. Here's hoping it's nothing serious.

    The FD of Brian and the FD of Denkova/Stavisky finish with the same piece of music and both are golden medalists and both are my favourites

    According to a japanese article (translated by an user @FSU), Daisuke Takahashi has been having nausea, abdominal pains and chills. He didn't feel well in the warm-up and had chills while skating.
    Thankfully, he doesn't seem serioulsy injured. Once he recovers from his illness he should be back in form.

    What a shock to wake up to all of this --- ok, I missed the SP too so Evan, Weir, and other ill comeptitors plus it looks like the women's LP weren't so good either...my goodnesss!!! I do hope everyone is or will be soon alright.

    It is, though, very disappointing as a fan to have what could have been such a intense competition sort of just fall apart.

    Not at all surprised at the results. It's on to protocols when they come up.

    I certainly am - not by the results per se, because considering the circumstances they were to be expected, but more by the circumstances themselves. So many things going wrong and/or weird in the whole event (not just Men).

    But before the results, there was much clamour that this was fair and very exciting. I think it was exciting.

    I agree. Before the event it seemed to be shaping up great. Then both U.S. men withdrew with injurues and the whole Japanese team got the flu. Bummer.
