Not the best performance by Kozuka, but the little face scrunch he had at the end was so adorable
My heart is breaking for Takahiko, so unfortunate those falls in front of his home country, which does not take away from the fact that he is an extraordinarily beautiful elegant unique skater. This competition just wasn't his today, better luck next time.
Groan.... I feel so bad for him. He's such a lovely skater but something went wrong. Don't think it was jet lag for him, though.
The program is sweet! esp. the ending.
And he goes into 3rd place.
Go, great Daisuke!
Aw, poor Taka-chan! I've never seen him look so tired after a program, either. I hope he's okay!
Daisuke, lookin' good!
Daisuke also not having a good skate... 2 falls and couple of shaky landing already. Poor guy.
Now Johnny, don't fall!! Okay??
Seems like Dai has lost his jumps, what a shame. I loved his program though.
4T - big step-out
3A-2T - a bit forward on landing
3A - stepout
(have to refresh site...)
3Lz-2T - fall/UR?
3? - falls again
Not a good day for the japanes men
Is Takahashi injured?
