He honestly looks like a child to me, whereas the others appear to be grown men, thus I'm not surprised he's straight up from jrs. He looks like it. :D
The big guns are on the ice.
UK Eurosport stream:
for the record, I paid for a feed subscription in the USA, but it has not delivered the reliable quality I experienced last year. Wake up Comcast!
Funny term, I wouldn't call them big guns, some still look like children, and none have the confidence of an Evgeni Plushenko. Jmho. Btw, where is Zhenya? I saw Mishin during the ladies (checking out the competition for Elizaveta most likely).
Interesting, Nadine. In a way Mroz looks more juniorish to me. He doesn't look as though he feels he belongs on the international ice to me. But he seemed a bit more comfortable than usual today so I'm happy for him.
Exciting last group. Great skaters with their own style.
Go Jeremy and the other four :-)
Fernandez is working to show he is a big gun. Landed his quad and 3A. Did a double on the combo but big gun enough to follow up with the 3T.
Javier doubled his combination, but everything else looked good.
Nice quad, weird 3/3 popped into 2/3, and low landing of his free leg on the 3A. Also, needs to work on his camel spin. Otherwise, good job, into 1st.
Fernandez showed improvement from Skate Canada already despite the error on the Lutz - very impressive showing. He has to be regarded as a contender this year.
The Euro guys keep comparing Javi to Orser, who has that proud dad smile at the K&C.
