One thing I did like about Gachinski's program is that he attempted to use the "Choreography Step Sequence" as it really should be used - fast across the ice, to the music, in a clear line. A lot of the other Men clearly did not get the memo about this element and still executed it as if they needed to flail about to gain a Level.
We'll differ on this BP. First I do not want to see facial odditities on the skater, unless it is part of the routine. To suddenly show anger, I get the feeling that the skater is hating figure skating. The anger should have a reason.
The straightline step sequence is a bore with its choppy showing of basic turns and the maddening arms are a hoot. What do those arms show?
A more serpentine pattern of steps would force the skater to show both sides of his basic turns including loops and twizzles. It would also enhance the choreography.
Unless you are implying Plu has zero skating skills.
Kozuka was the highlight of all Championship, since he came on the scene he was so much deserving of a medal that he finally took.Speaking about heart, this was a heart skate
I also was surprised pleasantly of Dornbush and enjoyed his lp very much.
I've come down hard on Gachinsky and I have not been fair after reading so many favorable posts of him. However, I do not like much about him except he lands the high level jumps and maybe that's enough to give him the Bronze medal. If someone could look at the protocols and see how he was judged other than on his jumps, I'll agree with you as a case for the CoP.
^i like a lot his lp from two years ago when he was at juniors. And in Junior Worlds last year he was a crwod favorite.
I think the men who were better skaters and much more experienced at Worlds than Gatsinsky blew it, nobody deserved this bronze the way they skated, maybe Arthur should have his chance to find his identity, he has been hyped since he was ten as the next big thing, he is only 17 , he was the only one to represent russia in men and he skated in home ice and skated better than many big names there.
