Heh. One day we'll find something to agree on, jenny!!!
http://www.sponichi.co.jp/sports/fla...100325020.htmlHe was worried about 3A on which he fell during the 6 min practice. He popped that jump and "Every mistake followed." "My brain did not work". ....
There was a talk that he might split with Morosov after Olympics. He may not have been ready mentally going for the comp.....
He has not overcome the lace incident and still gets nearly in tears when that topic is touched upon.....
Not sure how the lace incident affected this one, but the issue seems to be mental here, not injury.
I'm praying for many many clean skates tomorrow! Not like the many Olympic LP let downs :( Clean skates from Kozu, Abbot, and Chan would make my day!
But Brian just looked at Patrick and he immediately seemed to know the need of help. I am happy for him and hope he does well tonight also.
There is not yet any official explanation what happened with Oda, is there? I just looked replay from Eurosport and our commentator thought there might be something wrong in the skates. There must be some reason; that kind of thing does not happenoften even to the lower lever skaters.
Just two things. I dont think Chan projects more in he audience than Kozuka, or has more bold presence. I just think that kozuka'style is more loose and he skates differently. Or Chan skates a bit more mature for his age. They also have quite different bodylanguage (or something like that I cant explain). Anyway yesterday I thought Kozuka's program was a big step from Rostelecom, he skated with eye contact and I really really didnt want the program to end. And I dont know why people say Abott was tence, I was really really close and he looked relaxed and dancing with the music. Maybe I missed some facial expression to the camera???I didnt feel he was tense but as I said I was carried away by his music and his skate also.
museksk8r, aren't you essentially arguing that judges should be judging reputation/off the ice abilities as well? I agree that Kozuka has shown more range in terms of programs, and I do hope that Chan expands his repetoire, but suggesting that the judges should say "well, Kozuka can skate to "Bold as Love" and Romeo and Juliet, so lets give him a couple extra points"). What should it count towards?
