I was nearly afraid that one of the 3A-less US-guys would overtake him. Though I loved the second one with the strange name, great posture, fantastic speed and flow - and he seemed to enjoy being out there. The first American was like the male version of Alissa Czisny (I am not a fan of her...), the third American looked like he had to read from a telephone book and not skate and dance to some music.
Did Amodio had somehow low levels? He only has one point TES more than Amercian-guy-with-strange-name - Amodio only did 3S-3T, but that's just one point less than 3F-3T. But the Axel should have given Amodio nearly 5 points more.
But - a great short program, the 5 leading men all had clean programs.
