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
pour atteindre l'inaccessible étoile!
Dang! This was my dream podium. Am I actually dreaming? How did that happen?!
So happy for Plushenko and Lambiel.
I don't like Plushenko's free program this year but it's amazing what he can do even injured. However, this will be beatable in Vancouver. So I hope he goes home and works on his step sequences, keeps his stamina up, and doesn't get any more injured. Long rule the King!
Say, can anyone post a screencap of the podium? I can't get the feed to work.
