Bradley's only been to two worlds, why would he skip it now? Meier's been to nearly a dozen + the Olympics.
Every time this question comes up, I think the trump card is, the skaters, parents, coaches, and local clubs want the athletes to skate for it. Not to go by the "best interests" of the USFSA.
Down with the establishment, up with the people!
when will they announce the world and 4cc's team(s)?
Jeremy on FB:
"To those who skated their best Congrats and well deserved. As 4 me I am sorry. Just wasn't my year I guess. Regroup / refocus 4 the future."
He is such a sportsman! Good for him! thanks for sharing his post.
i hope jeremy can atleast go to 4cc cause i'd love to see his free program one last time and have him skate it with justice
Ok, why are these protocols taking SO LONG to become available?
Ryan did get the lowest skating skill marks of the top skaters, and even lower transition marks. Even his interpretation score is lower than Adam Rippon's. He had some of the lowest PCS of the top skaters.
I agree his skating skill marks should be lower, while his interpretation mark and performance/execution score should be higher.
I also agree that his first quad toe should have a UR call, while his second one should be marked as a combo with the 2t.
At the same time, I think Dornbush's SS should be much higher (he is faassssst), his P/E should be slightly higher (carriage is one of the consideration for P/E and that's where I'd ding him for his hunched shoulders), and his int should be higher.
I'd need to actually see Dornbush's SP to see if he's undermarked enough there to justify him winning overall. But my feeling is that Ryan could've won fair and square even if Dornbush didn't suffer n00b PCS.
Okay, I want to toss this out there again.
Ryan Bradley tacked on a double toe to his second quad to ensure that he got credit for a combo.
He didn't - the protocols list it as a 4T+Seq.
If so, that double toe should be considered another jumping pass, right?
If that's true, then his final jumping pass doesn't count.
His final jumping pass is a 3F that got him 6.83 points
He won by 6.44 points.
Can someone explain where I'm wrong? Maybe the protocols I'm looking at are wrong?
... giving him credit for the 4t2t would give him an extra 3.4 points, fwiw.
