Hi everyone, first group warming up
http://svtplay.se/v/1847633/konstakn...p104182,1,f,-1 for Swedish online. Very good quality.
So excited GO BRIAN!!!!
Brian skated before the Plushenko (Cannot stand him) in Budapest and won his first European title, so I am hoping that he kicks it to the overscored and stuffed Plushenko.
VIVE BRIAN JOUBERT!!!!
HENDRICKX some very nice quality triples, mistake on one of his 3 lutzes and no 3 axel yet but he seemed happy.
KELEMEN doubled a few jumps but lovely 3 axel and did get the harder 3 jumps in there. Reminds me a little of Ponsero.

I used to have a coach at this competition too.
BACCHINI tiled in air so doubled his 3 axel, some nice 3-3 combos, how did in manage to hang on to that 3 loop? lol
Go marry the quad if you love it so much
Holy monkey, Voronov is skating to a medley of Schindler's list and Palladio (i.e. the diamond commercial music). What to give your beloved to seal your love? Genocide! I am, once more, in awe of how tacky figure skating can be.
Voronov , 4 toe though too mant mistakes, not as good as his previous skates this season. Didn't really look at his coach when he got off. Hope his olympics are better.
Very laboured skating from Urbas; not at all pleasant to watch. But I guess he'l get points for getting the jumps done one way or another.
EDIT: or not... low score...

Yes overall not quite as good quality as the others but quite a few jumps landed.
So; I didn't quite catch this; when does it start again? In 40 minutes?
