According to the planned elements on vancouver2010.com Schultheiss will attempt a 4T-3T in the short. Has he ever tried/landed that before?
Dai confirmed that he will try the quad. But his success rates seem to have been low. If I average out the practice reports that I've checked out during the last few weeks, it sounds like less than 10%. I've never heard that he landed in in the run through during public practices, has he? Even though it's getting better during the last couple of days, it's an extremely risky choice. It would be great if something bigger may help him. But if he needs to make any mistake, I hope that he pops into a triple. If he falls or gets DG, it will open the door to Oda, Johnny, Lambiel, Chan, and Koz. I wonder how well Lambiel will do. He also seems to rely on the big tricks.
I don't know what happened to the reports that Lambiel will try three quads. If he does, I'll scream like crazy for him.
Big respect to Dai for going for the quad, even though he is unsure of it. That is how you should be at the Olys. Am sick of stagnation and going for the sure thing. I hope Weir goes for it too and makes it! Wouldn't that be something!
It will be very disappointing if Evan wins without a quad again~~~
