Big Daisuke, then Oda, then Kozuka. Murakami not even on the list yet. Go Adam!!
And he goes into 1st place. I personally don't agree with that, but no biggie.
What's the point of a difficult entry, if the jump isn't landed.
3Fl-3T - very good
CCoSp - nice
back spiral 3A - fall maybe UR?
rippon 3Lz - ok
3Lz-2T-2Lo - ok
1A - too bad
3S - ok
FCCoSp - nice
Adam's music sure doesn't help him get any momentum going. He skated pretty but not powerful.
Adam Rippon has some of the most beautiful exquisite entries into his jumps, especially that opening Evgeni Plushenko style spiral into 3A (one has to be very confident in their ability to land the 3A in order to do this). Too bad he fell on the second Plushenko 3A that he tried. And a few mishaps here & there, but not bad at all.
Not his best performance, but this program is packed with all of the goodies. Great score.
Adam's not happy ... he said it was a disaster. Poor Adam.
Go, Artem! Be as wonderful as last time, please!
OK - everybody has jet lag. Drat.
And he goes into 1st place. He really needs to work on his attitude, making faces, and like yesterday saying "what, I'm in 4th"!?!
