    71.12. I think that's a new personal best?

    ETA: Yes, yes it is!

    He said Adelina executed the 3Lutz in the SP fine. She fell, so she would get a -1 deduction, but her lutz was perfect.
    The other guy was like, no, she got a -3 GOE for that element because she fell.

    This guy is hopeless.

    I don't think it's the same person? Because that guy you referred to in China had a FAR deeper voice.

    Nice performance by the young Japanese guy, just the odd fall on a spin, but everything else very fine, which makes me wonder where he will be placed (btw imho Ross Miner's performance was better).

    Tatsuki Machida (JPN)

    Music: Dark Eyes (Russian Folk music)

    3A - nice
    3F+3T
    CCSp
    CCoSp
    3Lz
    FSSp - falls on entrance, too bad
    CiSt - nice energy

    Nice program - shame about the fall

    Machida was so impressive on everything and then that fall on the spin!

    His SS is tied with Menshov, give me a break.
    His basic skating is not much better than the other two skaters.

    Macieda had very nice jumps but yeah Miner's overall program was better, me thinks. I think he'll get zero points for the spin.

    ETA: Hm. Guess he got some points for that spin.

    Well Machida's certainly come out of his shell. Great speed. Hope he gets some accurate PCS, which should be high.

    And he does! Judges may not be totally blind after all. The highest PCS so far, and rightly so.

    Ahhhh, I can't believe how nervous I am for Brandon Mroz, I want to see him land that 4L in competition here at the NHK. I'm so nervous I can barely type nor watch the mens practice.

    Where's the nervous stressed out emoticon when you need it! :sheesh:

    Good to note that Machida got the highest PCS on his performance, then interpretation. Those were really his weak points in the past.

    I hope Mroz lands that quad lutz, then gets deservedly crushed in the PCS.
