What's with the USA and Dance? It's been a long time that Dance in the US was even mentioned except for Seniors. S&B were also good last season. I don't know Bosley and Corona and just 3+ points behind S&B. hmmm.
Artem Grigoriev is first after the men's short!
Surprising results for the U.S. guys. Relative unknown Armin Mahbanoozadeh is in second overall, with Austin Kanallakan in fourth overall. (Kanallakan made the JGF last year.)
Tommy Steenberg is way down in 9th, after an apparent fall. He had strong PCSs but only 19.14 in TEs.
Olivia Jones and Donald Jackson (CAN) are leading after the short program. Jessica Paetsch and Jon Nuss are in 2nd. I'm a little surprised but I'm happy for them.
Why are you surprised?? Just curious. Maybe because of the -1 deduction not taking them down further?
Yes, I was surprised because of that. 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place are so close I guess I thought a mistake would put them lower. Hopefully I'll be able to see their program.
I agree, but they tend to do higher level lifts, twist, and spins and get +'s on the GOE's that hold them up. Their throw 2toe has good lift but the sbs jump, 2x is just not landed with consistency yet by her. However I do not know if this was their deduction. They also have great expression and speed across the ice. Good for Paetsch/Nuss but I am truly surprised with Bianca and Joe. I hope they Rally in the Long.
Poor Tommy - He was second in the GP Final last year, I believe and then blew the US Nats. I hope he skates a good LP and pulls himself up a couple of notches. Hope he then does a winning Nats in St. Paul. if not, his days are numbered with the USFS.
Artem Grigoriev (Russia), will be a name to watch. I definitely want to see him tomorrow in the reruns and then the LP. What about the quad?
And the Japanese boy, Akio Sasaki. A star in the making?
Day 1 article on Ice Network:
The webcast begins today at 11:30 am ET with the taped compulsory dance.
Very quick report...
Mirai Nagasu is practicing well as of yesterday (Friday). Her planned jumps in the SP are 3Z-2T, a cool entry of split falling leaf-forward lunge to 3R and 2A. Other SP run throughs that I've seen include the following planned jumps: Alexe Gilles (3Z-2T, 3R), Angela Maxwell (3T-3T, 3R), Miruku Matsushita (3S-2T, 2R), Satsuki Muramoto (3R, 3S-2T). Greece's Maria Papasotiriou has been practicing 3F and 3R but I don't know if she's putting either jump into her SP.
Trivia: Competitors here who have competed previously in U.S. qualifying competitions (Regionals/Sectionals/Juv.or Int. Nationals) are:
Victoria Muniz and Andrew Huertas (PUR), Amar Mehta (IND), Sigrid Young and Yang/Tang (TPE), Maria-Elena Papasotiriou (GRE), Charissa Tansomboon (THA), Gracielle Jeanne Tan (PHI).
I've typed out the Executed Elements list in the Men's SP and Pairs SP protocols (they should be published on the ISU site as soon as the competition ends on Sunday).
MEN'S SP (in finish order)
Artem Grigoriev RUS
3Lz+3T (+1.38 GOE average - beautifully vertical and high!); 3Lo(+); CCSp1; SlSt2; 2A; FSSp1; CiSt1; CCoSp1
He certainly competed at a higher level than he practiced!
Armin Mahbanoozadeh USA
3Lz(bit of a wild free leg)+2T; 3Lo; FSSp4; CiSt1; CCsp3; 2A; SlSt2; CCoSp3
A very solid performance and he even cracked a small smile toward the audience near the end.
Akio Sasaki JPN
3Lz+2T; 2Lo; FSSp1; SlSt2; 2A; CCSp2; CiSt1; CCoSp3
He really got into the character of his Flamenco program.
Austin Kanallakan USA
3F+3T(; 3Lo; 2A; CCSp1; CiSt2; FSSp1; SlSt1; CCoSp2
His jumps were a bit rough but he skated well to his dramatic music with his trademark intensity and arm flinging.
Christopher Berneck GER
3T+3T(2-fted); 3Lo; FFSp3; CiSt2; 2A; SlSt2; CCSp4; CCoSp3
Very lyrically skated performance.
Florent Amodio FRA
3A+2T; 2Lo; CCSp1; CCoSp1; SeSt1; 2A(fall); FSSp1; CiSt1
Music was "Somewhere in Time" and the Rachmaninoff piano concerto used in the movie and I thought he interpreted it well.
Andrei Rogozine CAN
3S+3T<(2-fted); 3Lo; FSSp3; 2A; CiSt2; CCSp2; SlSt1; CCoSp3
Romain Ponsart FRA
3F+2T; FSSp2; 3Lo(fell out); CiSt1; 2A; CCoSp2; SlSt1; CCSp1
Tommy Steenberg USA
2Lz+2T (landed 3Lz+3T(2-fted) in the 6-min. WU); 3Lo(fall); CCoSp3; CiSt2; 2A; CCSp3; SlSt1; FSSp1.
I thought his PCS marks could have been higher due to the overall high quality of skating.

Note: His sit spin with his leg tucked under and layover camel positions were very good. He received warm and sustained applause from the audience afterwards.

Thanks again Sylvia. I see all the young men did a loop as their solo jump. Is this required this year?
