Very much surprised to see Takahashi's 4-3. He said "avoiding in the SP" yesterday but I must apologize to say "just bluffing".
Hanyu has opened up on his 4T and added just 2T to the 3Lz. If it was Oda.... we can imagine what happened. Machida may feel being robbed. Pretty much sure the judges are on Hanyu's side.
I have faith in the swan
I'm being told on twitter that there was a mistake in the scoring and Yuzuru Hanyu and Tatsuki Machida's placements have been reversed.
Tatsuki Machida 74.64
Yuzuru Hanyu 74.32
Only three men went for a quad, one succeded (Dai). But the event was very remarkable and exciting to watch.
Remember this name: Uno. The guy is 14yo, looks like an 11-12yo and skates like a seriously experienced skater. With the adult look, focus, he just radiates responsibility. Very good feeling of ice, confident but light. Hino was just all nothing. I couldn't believe that some years ago he was over Yuzuru. Now he is unbelievably slow, boring, seems like he skates with no enthusiasm or desire. One a site note, but I am not sure- the commentator said his mother has one Japanese parent and one Russian. It makes Hino 1/4 Russian? I didn't know that. Nakamura was very elegant. He is tall, with long legs, the body is not an Asian type, and skating somehow too. Sharp clean lines, no fuss, with self-proud feeling, a little slow and reserved though. Machida was on fire, not like in Sapporo. He looked much healthier, faster, artistic, that was just written all over his face that he was enjoying the moment! He might feel that the result is a little unfair, but probably Yuzuru's speed and high level of some elements put him slightly over Machida. For now. But I am sure tomorrow Hanyu will say his word. Today he was very disappointed with his skating. Kozuka in my opinion shouldn't get 85 for a quadless program, even for a quad attemp-less program. He took it safe and played pragmatic. The skating was somewhere emotion-less and not that inspiring. But he looks quite satisfied with the result (it was before Dai and his score). Dai !!! He trolled everyone, in a good sense of course. Yesterday there were talks that he wouldn't try a quad in SP because he wasn't successful with it during practice. During the warm-up he performed more than once his classic combo 3F/3T. Naturally everybody assumed that that was what he was going to do. And wow! 4t-3t! Clean and nice! When was the last time he did it? Ages ago, and he never did this combo in SP. In the interview he said that he decided to risk it this morning when he felt that the element might go good. Why not to try. You, Dai! After skating he looked so shining, with sparkling brown eyes, oh... Over 50 for TES, some kind of record I think. Great work, man!
Reason: change from level 3 to 2 change foot combination spin...
Dai did 4T-3T in 2005 worlds SP:
(New scoring system Dai did 4T and 4T-2T in 2008 4CC LP.)
Thanks for your report. I am beyond thrilled for Dai!! Sounds like he was on fire.

This is a longer video of Dai's SP with scores and interview. Very good quality.
Dai seems to be in a class of his own this year, despite not winning everything. amazing 4-3! his LP this year is one of the all timers for me - i can watch it over and over again. he must win worlds this year. he's way better that Patrick Chan, imo.
