    Japanese men go 1-2-3 in the Free Skate, 2 medals but not the two we were expecting. This Hanyu kid is something, while we were all focused on Dai, Kozuka, and Oda, this kid sneaks in and gets in a bunch of quick punches!

    Is he going to Worlds? I agree with somebody above who said this kid is dangerous!

    Sensitive and mature performance from Adam Rippon, I preferred it to Takahashi who was a bit frantic imo.

    Nope, because he finished fourth at Japanese Nationals. Oda (the silver medalist) will be there.

    I could only manage to crawl back out of bed for the last group...But Dai's tango and Adam's Rach back to back ( even with mistakes ).. doesn't get much sweeter than that , for me.

    OK, so this is end of season for Yuzuru Hanyu, but what an ending. Can't wait to see what he's got in store for us next season.

    I hope this is going to be on demand on justintv so I can go back and watch some of the other programs (like Shawn and Kevin, even though it seems they didn't skate that well)

    Protocals

    Man they are fast

    Daisuke got a downgrade (as expected) on his 4T + negative GOE. He also had a UR on his 3T at the end of his 3Z combo. Otherwise solid.

    Takahiko actually had the highest TES of the night at 83.19. Other than the 4T fall and negative GOE on the 3LO, he had solid +GOE elsewhere.

    Yuzuru was the only one to land a quad and man the judges loved it, +2! He did get an edge call on his fligp and some negative GOE on his 3Z late in the program. Also he only had a level two combo spin. They also loved his 3A-3T which was late in the program +1.86!

    Jeremy got a UR on his quad attempt along with the negative GOE. He also got negative GOE for his 3A-2T combo and his 3Z-2T-2T combo (where he two-footed the last jump) He also lost major points on levels (no level four spins or steps).

    Adam had a DG on his second 3A and URs in his 3F-3T combo and 3LO jump. But he did get level four spins and other than negative GOE on the jumping passes I mentioned earlier, he scored solid GOE.

    Shawn suffered UR in his 3LO, in his 3F-3L sequence and in his 2A with negative GOE to refelct that. Obviously his PCS helped-- though he finished 10th overall, he was 6th in PCS beat only by the top five finishers. But he was a dismal 14th in TES.

    The three Chinese men were quite impressive. In TES, Abbott and Rippon were behind all three of them.

    I'm still bothered by the fact that Abbott isn't going to Worlds over a .19 difference when he proves time and time again that he will put up higher (much higher) scores than Miner internationally, but oh well. Who needs a medal threat at Worlds?

    Except Plush. He said in his interview months ago that Hanyu is going to be one of his main, if not the main, rival in Sochi.
