Yay for Stephen into first.
P.S. I loved Carriere's variation on the Tano Flourish. His was like Rippon's Lutz (both hands overhead), but he used his on the 2jump after the triple.
Funny how ALL the guys in 2nd warm-up group is wearing black.
IS Evan wearing spikes on his shoulder(pads) ?
I LOVE THIS GUY, HE'S TOTALLY FAB!!!!!!!1
He's like Appolo Anton Ohno on skates.....what outstanding speed, pizzazz, showmanship, line, flair, et al.......he has it all except when he doesn't land the jumps. He fell on two (I was biting my fingernails hoping he wouldn't fall).
Rachael, this is the way "Sing Sing Sing" is supposed to be done!
Lol, and on pure aesthetic note, he's gorgeous (nice butt, too, similar to Elvis's).
Missed Ponsero's LP (had to have breakfast)
Splat as usual??
And he goes into 1st place with a score of 128.47!!!!!! Well deserved!!
Jinlin Guan (CHN)
Turandot (a la Arakawa WC 2004)
3Lz3T - nice
3F - good
3A - smooth
3F - hand down
2A2T1T (not sure)
It was Guan now?I overslept..how Ten and Ponsero did?
Great job by the CHN man! Excellent applause from the audience. Think he landed everything, maybe a minor stumble on a landing.
Loved the music of Turandot, reminds me of Sarah Hughes skating to this in her blue dress ~ my favorite program of hers. Ah, how I miss her.
Back to here & now:
Guan goes into 5th place with a score of 121.25.
how contesti managed to be more hot than last year?
Russian Tv cut connection in footwork
Good comeback by Contesti after he started out opening with a huge 3A/3T (hands down on the second jump), then fell on his next jump & crashed into the boards! *eek*
However, he came back strong later on with a beautiful 3A, 3/3 combo. followed up by another 3/2/2 combo.
Not bad at all.
