    Thanks!

    Looks like Kozuka and Verner are in a relatively not very good positions.

    That depends on how Patrick and Daiuke perform

    I automatically assume they'd perform well. Cross my fingers!

    Thank you for the information.

    Maybe Chan should set the bar for this competition and Oda... he should have nerves of steel especially if other skaters did very well.

    Go all the skaters!

    Kazuko and Verner should just focus on their skate. They should know that Chan can kiss the ice three times with his butt and will still score over 80+

    Oda normally do well in the SP (except last year world), its the LP where he normally have problem with counting jumps!!

    Then why compete? It doesn't make sense.

    I think it will be advantageous for the young Americans Miner & Dornbush to skate early (in the first group) because it relieves some of the pressure they may feel if they had to follow Chan or the Japanese men.

    Or perhaps they could try to land a clean quad!!!

    The only time Chan kissed the ice three times with his butt in SP, he scored 73.20, caming in 4th in a minor event, and Oda beat him with 81.57 without a quad.

    Oda had the best SP internationally this season, scoring 86.59, with the best quad combo of the season but an edge call. He may yet come in first again as he usually does.

    I think it will be advantageous for the young Americans Miner & Dornbush to skate early (in the first group) because it relieves some of the pressure they may feel if they had to follow Chan or the Japanese men.
    I don't think these lads feel the pressure of competing against the top guys. They will go out and do their best, unless the nerve gets them for just being at Worlds.

    I'd be more concerned about Joubert. Aren't he and Amodio using the same music?

    Yup, and it suits Amodio much better, IMO. But Joubert has the quad going for him so it might not matter if he can skate clean and convincingly.

    Skating early didn't hurt Mirai at the Olympics last year!
