Nothing stood out to me as unusual. The arena was somewhat empty during the practices and you could hear the exchanges between the coaches and skaters. Brian looked very frustrated during some of the practices, I remember some of us getting mad that he was overreacting but I wouldn't say mean. At one point Adam came to the boards for a tissue he was coughing quite a bit (if I remember correctly he had a cold) and when he skated away Brian knocked away the tissue box to the floor and kicked it. It was weird. My guess is that something happened either at or after this competition.
