Add Voronov to the list of guys needing a haircut. What's up with all of them? All going for the retro hippies look or something?
Voronov is cute. Wish he wouldn't hide it behind his mop of hair...
WHy Voronov always gives up when he makes a bad start?Come on fight a little! I m upset!
Oh well done Evan! I managed to wake right before his performance!
I love the program. And his costumes for me are cutting age meets classy style. Daring, but not bad.
Well done Sergey for fighting it through! He lostsecond 3A and 3f but everything else was good. As I said before he improved in choreography and overall. 2nd place for him. Good result!
Oda is such a natural jumper, he reminds me of a young grasshopper, he put on a jumping clinic out there today. Nice showmanship as well, reminiscent of Phillipe Candeloro & his famous Godfather routines at both the 1994 & 1998 Olympics respectively.
3Lz - smooth
3A3T - very nice
CiSq - funny
3A popped into 1A - oh no
1st or 2nd? Will definitely qualify for the GPF
I will put Oda's program on my ipod, I just adore this program, I can imagine it for Gold in Vancouver!Morozov was a genious on this!
And he easily goes into 1st place with a score of 239.58!
Well, looks like quadless (and not flawless) Oda does beat quadless Lysacek.
LP score 156.23 pts
Great job by Oda. First place well deserved. Bravo!!
With Oda's popped jump I thought he might be second but
the rest of his program was first class.
Evan and Oda were the highlights for me. They were wonderful.
I love this crowd. They are so supportive and engaged. They applaud everything. They applaud all the jumps, whether landed or not, popped or stepped out of. They applaud all the good spin positions. But maybe they shouldn't be so eager to clap along all the fast footwork sections, especially if they can't keep beat.
They are polite and supportive like the Japanese & Korean audiences. But in addition, they seem to be more light-hearted and warm, they laugh at everything, the little flower girls laden down with gifts, unguarded moments of the audience doing silly things (like one woman petting another woman's hair like a cat). It's a great audience.
Was Lysacek downgraded on anything? That's quite a mediocre TES, especially for a guy with steps and spins, that often earn lots of GOE.
