Will we see the quad king today? He's lucky to be here after Shawn Sawyer withdrew.
A fall on the 4S (certainly double-footed, not sure if it was under-rotated... probably). Held on to the 3A. Interestingly went after the easier 3Lz+3T instead of the second quad, which I think is a better idea. He tends to get a bit forward with his back and cups his hands strangely (and is it me, or are they really red?). A lively interpretation to the music, though, and plenty of transitions.
SP: 64.36 (something else might have been downgraded)
Kevin REYNOLDS (CAN)
Music: Moanin' by Art Blakey + Drum Thunder Suite by Art Blakey
4S - fall, looked UR
3A - ok, but swinging free leg
Score: 64.36 and into 7th
I'm starting to really like Kevin R. Shame about the quad. But he's good at everything, not just the jumps. He has great line and musicality. Not wild about the program. Basically I dislike just about every jazzy program I've ever seen! I love jazz, but not the "juzac" that skaters choose.
Wow low score for Reynolds...the URs.
But at least he didn't look completely devastated as he did at Four Continents..
Well done Kevin. Hope the 4F is rotated. Good program, good performanc.
7th place. 3A hurts him. Besides the injury, that is.
Majorov popped the combo completely (I think he did a 1 Lz-half loop)
Kevin did look a little off, but it was mentioned that he's recovering from a hip injury. That might be why he was slower than usual. It's a shame about the quad. Could he have had a UR on the axel as well? Score was really low for him. It is nice to see him getting into the performance, though. His artistry has really improved this year.
Not so shaggariffic....
Majorov was entertaining, but there were too many mistakes.
