    I thought it was a quad too.. He looked so excited about it too :-)
    Didn't like Voronov's trousers; the stripes made his lines look even more crooked.

    Need to check the video again, yes I think it was.

    Brezina was looking so good...........

    Maybe Plushenko is intimidating the young rivals.

    NOTE: I'm honestly proud of Zhenya, he's not afraid to lose, and he's not afraid to skate while injured, he takes his lumps like a real man would.

    Nothing he does from here on in will ever take away his status as a legend, it only adds to it, nobody else even comes close.

    BRING IT ON!!!!

    Who leaves the Quad as the last jump in the short? A bit of a gamble there, especially for someone who hasn't landed Quads consistently so far.

    Nice program to Kodo drums, but one threat has gone started off so well with a gorgeous 3A good GOE on that, I would give it +2, nice combo but the 2nd 3T slight turn out - shame - looked like he was going for 4S but crashed on the ice, downgraded definately, great speed and ice coverage, nice steps, spins, spins could be better, i honestly think 75 for that.

    Yeah.. Was it planned like that? I read in the practice reports he was missing the quad sal as well. Gorgeous triple axel though :-)

    I am looking forward to seeing Gachinski also, but my feed is freezing a lot now--too many people watching it, I guess. I expect Zhenya not only to try the quad in the free skate, but to land it there, also. I think that may be why he did not use it in the SP.

    Huge gamble and not consistent enough

    Blues Deluxe, nice use of the music suits his style, coverage could be better, struggled on his opening 3F combo, double on the end, everything else nice, spins need work, low 60's - shame has done better with that program in the past.

    Plushenko's SP score ties for third this season (behind Takahashi and Chan, w/ Fernandez sharing the spot). I don't know if I should be impressed with the man's capabilities (that 3A!!!) or depressed at the overscoring.

    Javiar's consistency on the quad is astounding! He honestly makes it seem like child's play (his best jump imho). But still the odd stumble on the 3/3 and then the fallout on the 3A. Once he cleans those up he will easily dominate the world.

    ps: this program reminds me of Kurt Browning's "Singin in the Rain".

    I can't decide whether Plushenko was over scored or not without protocols. Lysacek and Takahashi have had around 90 in SP at 2010 Olympics without a quad. I'm just thrilled for Plushenko.

    eta: I honestly thought that Fernandez could easily beat Plushenko. But he didn't. Looks like Plushenko will change the geo map wherever he goes.
