    I don't know I felt Oda was a bit tentative throughout, and I didn't really like his program, I personally would put Nan Song ahead of him.

    We shall see...

    Not sure what I feel about this program, not much expression. No quad - is he still injured, or is he playing it safe?

    I actually really like this program. It will be close, but I can see Nobu passing on his PCS scores.

    ETA: Opps, misread what he needed to beat Nam. I change my mind, I think he'll end up behind him.

    ETA2: I should have stuck with my first assessment. PCS gets him past Song. Barely.

    I thought it was something minor early in the Summer.

    It was tentative - his injury is not healed yet. But it was a good effort considering the last time I saw him in practice he barely could do double loops. I liked the program, choreo-wise. TES will be low (no quad, probles with 3F and 2A) but he should get pretty decent PCS.

    Could anybody enlighten me, what was Oda's injury all about?

    I like this program for Abbott. But his technical program is not high enough in this field.

    OMG, when Jeremy skates like this I have no words, in tears, such a beautiful soul. Now this is the rare case when I think a quad doesn't matter (though he needed that second 3A imho).

    This program, choreography routine ranks up there with John Curry imho ~ a male ballerino on ice ~ exquisite, exquisite, exquisite...

    And his spins are on a dime (a specialty of the Satos).

    Ahhhhh, no words, just soul....

    He struggled with severe knee pain since before Worlds and he had a corrective surgery just after Worlds. It was mentioned during the Japanese Summer Training Camp that he still couldn't practice jumps back then and so just went thrugh his spins / choreo during the camp. The posters at Nobunari's homepage and Mao's fan forum reported that Nobunari had a check-up at the hospital again and the doctors said his injury isn't completely healed yet and he should take it easy on the jumps.

    149.17 for Jeremy and he's in first. AND YES 80.50 in PCS. I was sick of him getting 7s.
