    Schultheiss is way behind now but with Berntsson not doing that well in free skates Schultheiss could still come in second. I think it is looking good for Majorov but Berntsson is a question mark.

    Is anyone else surprised that Adrian's PCS didn't even break 30? Was his presentation really that bad compared to his teammates? The judges gave him 3.67 and 4.41 less points on PCS than Sasha and Koffe respectively. That's quite a gap, and it makes me wonder how "lost" he might have been while performing his choreography. Although Schultheiss also messed up his SP at Euros, he still received 31.29 for PCS.

    True enough, Kristoffer hasn't been able to skate his LP well all season. Adrian is the only Swede who can land the quad, so I'm fairly certain he'll include one in the free skate. (Since he usually has a small PCS deficit compared to Berntsson, I'm a little puzzled that he didn't try the jump in the SP. )

    When you look at the fall competitions, Majorov has been more consistent than either of his teammates (his only big screw-up so far was his SP at the Swedish Nationals), but he's not immune to disastrous performances (e.g. his 2009 Euros LP where he fell 4 times).

    WOO HOO, I found videos for Sasha and Adrian!!!!! We're still empty-handed for Koffe, though. Such a shame, because "Comptine d'un autre été" is one of my favourite programs this season... *sighs*


    Alexander Majorov SP:

    I love the energy he puts into "Soul Bossa Nova"! Austin Powers would be proud!


    Adrian Schultheiss SP (the first 40 seconds are missing):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMypxz-uB5s

    What the...? WHY on earth did Adrian change his SP??? I really liked "Scuba" and theme behind it! I wasn't ready to say goodbye to it!

    Oh dear, Juulia Turkkila attempted a 3-3 in her SP! Very gutsy! She is becoming my favourite of the young Finnish skaters.

    The coverage for Nordics has already started more than half an hour ago on TV2 News, and there is way to watch in on-line, BUT you have to pay for the privilege : http://sputnik.tv2.dk/play/broadcast/tv-2-news/ I'm desperate, but not that desperate.

    Oh, that's unfortunate... I'm sure the network didn't broadcast much from the event, but it would've been nice to know what they did show...

    Yes I did! I don't know much about him (other than the fact that he once medaled at both Swedish Nationals and at Nordics), but I was aware of his country switch. Is Justus part (or fully) Danish?





    I know, there is only a point separating them! It's going to be so exciting tomorrow! Oh, how I wish I could see this competition!


    Yes, it would have been nice to watch some coming men/women!

    I have heard nowhere that Justus has a Danish citizen ship. But I have seen his hopes are going to Sochi. So that has to be sorted then.

    ME TOO WANTED TO WATCH "The Big Fight" The last group is skating right now. This is so frustrating. Poor Adrian, Does he have a chance? No, if the other two skate fairly clean. Will Sasha prove that he is the best Swedish male skater, as he claims? Yes, I think so, but he is not consistent… so, this is dramatic between three rivales with very different personalities. Someone is going to be sad, sad ...
    Hope they all do well

    Yeah, but hey, we don't want that

    snowflake, while we're nervously awaiting for the final results, I wanted to ask what you thought of Adrian's new SP. Do you think it's better or worse than "Scuba"?

    That's what makes the Swedish male skaters so exciting! Anything can happen with these three. Oh, I'm so anxious right now! *bites her fingernails*

    Just for fun, a Japanese fan made a montage which focuses on the rivalry of Koffe, Adrian and Sasha: http://www.nicozon.net/watch/sm11269957

    Well, I would say that two would react sadly if they did not make the World team, and the other would have a big temper tandrum. (I'm sure you know who I'm talking about! )

    I don't know right now about Adrian's new SP. I have to watch it again. Risky to change right now, but he is an unpredictable guy…



    The montage is cool. Wish I understood the text. Thanks to the japanese fan

    Well, I think that "the other" has learnt his lesson and has a big future in FS! Sasha's jumps in short were HIGH


    OT Congratulations to Eric Gay(CAN) for winning downhill gold at alpine worlds

    His name is spelled Erik Guay. CBC television will be showing the race tomorrow afternoon.

    Kudos to Sasha on his first Nordic title! He should've been sent to Euros instead of Koffe, so it's good that he'll go to Worlds and gain more experience on the big stage.

    Majorov won the competition, but Adrian did beat him the free skate, though (albeit by only 0.02 points ). I've noticed in the protocols that Schultheiss didn't do a quad. Maybe he doesn't feel confident about that jump anymore?

    I'm very, very, very heartbroken about this , but I have to admit that after seeing him fall apart at Euros, I had a bad feeling that the same thing would happen here. When I saw Kris compete at SC a few months ago, I had no idea at the time that it would be his cleanest LP performance of the entire season... *sighs*
