Great job by Kim Lucine; Prince Albert would be proud (though I admit the video I'm watching is all messed up, lol).
Nice style- summertime, nice combo turn out in between, nice spread eagle into 2A, spins slow but nice varaiation, nice use of the music, lovely transition into 3L but just held on so GOE wont be that great but should be rewarded for excellent transition on that, lovely bit of aeroblading at the end, crowd likes it, might struggle without the 3A. Lets hope he pulls through should get 55-58.
Piano in A Minor performed by Maksim Mrvica - fast program and really attacked it, but fast paced all the way through, great 3x3, 3A was there not sure if it was short of rotation but I will give it to him, good speed and coverage, use of music could have been better and needed some light and shade in it, lovely combination spin, should score well with. Competition is hotting up!! Guys

Why did Chafik have a deduction? I missed part of his performance...
Knock on wood, video has improved!
Voronov did a nice quad, too bad about the 3A though, but I had to LOL when I saw the soccer ball uniform. :D
I can't wait to see Javier & Joubert (he might finally get his chance to beat his nemesis).
Music from the A league of their Own OST - not sure what has happened with voronov but did not like the program - very flat, all over the place here a big waxel. Spins were not aligned enough, I think after he blew the combo - lost concentration. Needs Urmanov back.
Sorry must have missed the quad, hard being a journo and watching live

Also I honestly cannot wait to see Artur Gachinski, because when he's on he deserves high marks. At Russian Nationals I would have given him the win over Zhenya, and here he will get the win over him if he skates clean.
russell30, I thought it was a quad, but maybe not?
