Men - short program
Warm-Up Group 1
1 Peitong CHEN (CHN)
2 Jinlin GUAN (CHN)
3 Ross MINER (USA)
4 Peter LIEBERS (GER)
5 Jialiang WU (CHN)
6 Tatsuki MACHIDA (JPN)
Warm-Up Group 2
7 Brandon MROZ (USA)
8 Sergei VORONOV (RUS)
9 Takahiko KOZUKA (JPN)
10 Samuel CONTESTI (ITA)
11 Brian JOUBERT (FRA)
12 Tomas VERNER (CZE)
Joubert seems to be the favorite to win with Kozuka nearbye. The others are too iffy.
I hope Verner, Voronov, and Mroz will stay on their feet whether they do a quad or not in the short. I guess this is the first competition after Voronov switched coaches?
The last season wasn't as great a season for Contesti as the one before, hopefully this season will.
Wishing Kozuka and Machida to show great skating. Machida's Dark Eyes program was quite enjoyable and I'm looking forward.
I like Jinlin Guan's skating and if he still can't land a 3A, it would be nice if he would try a quad combo in the short as well as in the free. He fell on 4t in the free in the domestic comp in mid September but I also saw a clip of him landing a quad combo in practice so he appears to be ready to include one.

I was thinking the same thing but good luck to all
