Wow Russia is back on track - not long for Sochi, Plushenko seems to be good for Gachinski - pushing one another. 4T 3T wow!!! i think he was fully round on that quad. 3A shame on the landing not a great landing edge sort of stopped on the spot. Nice Loop, combination spin at the end - sort of paused before he went into the position before he started it, and lost speed in the spin. Big score hear i think.
so littly plushy beat the oldie. jumps were great. he looked a little slow though!
wander what is on mishins mind
Holy cow, horrible fall on the 3A by Contesti!
Artur did the elements, but as a dancer he was a miserable failure. Skated with zero involvement with the music, or any awareness or purpose of movement beyond getting through the steps. He looked confused at times. His PCS being higher than Verner is ridiculous.
what a melt down for contesti!
love the concept of the program always brings something different. Huge combo to begin with both solid triples, best of the day so far height - length and speed in both +2 on that, but then fall on the 3A thought took long on that before taking off and that cost him, not sure he was fully round either, disaster on the 3F, going for a difficult transition into it and underrotated the jump, lost momentum i thought between the elements and lost speed on the spin at some point. I feel his free is better but will have a lot to do. I would have thought around 62 for that ouch!!
update they credited the flip as rotated. triple score but -GOE

Oh I remember this little guy, he's the Mini Me in Austin Powers (think it's his FS though).
Say what you want about Artur, he skated clean with the hardest content( the second to land a 4T and the first to do it in combo with a 3T). It's not his fault the others stumbled. Maybe Javier wanted it too much. But he is not far away from first place. The competition is still open
LOL I love this program! :D Fast powerful with muscular legs, love his spins, looks like Todd Gilles of the USA, only shorter.
Political scoring maybe (It still goes on under COP)
If you was given a lump sum of money to give that skater a score I am sure none of us would turn it down
So glad that Gachinski did not let his nerves get to him. Way to go!
Haha this guy is what Kurt Hummel would look like if he was a figure skater! Pretty decent jumps from a guy I hadn't heard of much before.
Oh god nerves now for Kevin.
