    That is so crazy. Brezina and Florent are the reasons I started watching junior competitions. They have something special. I knew they would do well in the senior ranks.
    On a sad note...my Adrian S. I'm so worried about dude quitting and this isn't helping.

    I wonder if all the talk last season about transitions and having an actual program finally brought Joubert's flaws to the front.

    Oh? And I just thought; "what an awesome competition, I think I'm in love with all of them" Of course, as always, there were a few personal worst and some bad unnecessary falls; Verner, Joubert, Preaubert, Schultheiss. (Fernandez falls were funny and suitable to the music, both he and Morozov laughed.)

    I wasn't a big fan of Amodio or Brezina before, but I loved these two this afternoon. Great performances! Gashinski is a breath of fresh air, just give him some years!

    Overall I liked the fighting spirit, the attempts to make good programs and the diversity. But, well, I am just a simple fan of figure skating

    Anyway, tomorrow will be the day to stand up. The long program will show the real standard. If they can compete with the rest of the world, well, that's to be seen in March

    Haven't seen the program yet, but how do you explain the score?

    I'm very anxious, too. My heart sank to my stomach when I saw how low his score was. :( He's already in a dark place emotionally, so I can't imagine how he must be feeling right now.

He didn't flow very well. Placement of his three jump elements back to back where the first and second jump elements were landed in the exact same corner on the ice shows poor use of ice surface. And there really isn't much in-between elements - from a transition standpoint, he hasn't mastered yet what linked the elements together as one piece, perhaps a little too much emphasis on the showmanship.
    Wow, was it really that bad, the program I liked so much

    I don't agree with it. I'd personally go for a +1 but no more.

    See his TEB SP score: http://www.isuresults.com/results/gpfra2010/

    Same step sequence but scoring mostly if not all 1. He finished 2nd in the SP only to Kozuka. What justified the same element suddenly getting all 2 and some 3s, I am not sure. Did he really skate that much better? I don't think so.

    Yes, he doesn't seem to have much self confidence right now. But he chose to go for the quad, so... win or loose. Now the women around him have a big job to raise him up

    I wish you a fabolous skate tomorrow Adrian

    yes, sorry, I rushed
    Strange competition , a bit toned down, but the top are new generation so there is hope

    needless to say Euromen will be buttered at worlds

    I love Swedish men, both! and KVDP, they just dont give up! It was Bertsson´s 11 th time at euros!

    I was expecting Fernandez to have a progress by now but he isnt.

    Liebers was the best skate for me, judges should notice him!

    You can read about it here: http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/sho...figure-skating He's been feeling depressed for a while now and is considering quitting the sport.

    I would have Brzezina 1st. But apparantly being a GP finalist helped big time (not that I think Amodio did poorly, but I would have him 2nd).

    Yes, he should have more points for skating skills and performance/IN. E.g. compared to Joubert he had 1.4 lower in SS. And the same or lower in performance and interpretation ... Overall 7.32 lower in PCS than Joubert. Liebers was one that stood out for me too

    I enjoyed Amodio's performance as well. I'm not very good with the techinical aspects of skating, so there may be weaknesses that I can't see, but I know what I like.

    I think the guy also needs a big hug from his fans. (((Adrian)))

    Actually, it's his 12th. I believe he's the oldest competitor in this event (KVDP is a month younger). It's a shame that Koffe didn't land the 3A properly, and his 3T was UR. Still, his SP is very beautiful, and he always brings out the best in his choreography.
