    Really happy for Amodio. That was a decent program, most of the jumps were really beautiful, he didn't seem overly nervous à la Fernandez & Co. He does have a nice quality over the ice during the lyrical parts.

    I would have had Gachinski's SS score down in the low 6's...and that's because I'm generous and magnanimous!

    Zhenya has matured well over the years. I remember the meltown that happened in Nice, years ago; he learned from that, and it never happened again. Now he is like steel. It has taught me how much a skater can grow in response to pressure, how much a man can mature into a total champion, fighting against all odds time and time again. I am very glad to have learned this, and it gives me hope for various rising male skaters who are struggling with the pressure of international competition; I earnestly hope that it gives hope to them, too.

    I've just seen Plushenko's performance (thank you Nikaquest whoever you are) and all I can say is that it brought tears to my eyes. I'm so proud of him.

    I am very sad about Javi. He seems to have gotten a triple jump trauma. Or just the nerves. That Pluschenko won so clearly without doing a quad is embarassing for all other skaters. So many mistakes again they did. I find it strange that Gachinski with 2 quads is so far behind Pluschenko I must say. And Amodio ahead of Brezina? I don't get that either.

    Florian - watch again. Plushy landed a beautiful quad for his opening jump.

    It's interesting to see the front and backloading strategies of the different coaches. The Mishin skaters, Plush and Gachinski, for instance, frontloaded their jumps. With Plushy putting 5 of his jumping passes before the second half, and only 3 in the back. Artur splits it 4 and 4. Meanwhile, Morozov protege Florent way backloads his jump layout, doing 6 jumps in the second half instead of the usual 5 that most men at this level go for. If you recall, Morozov used the same strategy for Miki Ando, backloading 5 of her jumps.

    There were the 2 Russians and then the rest…..

    Plushenko, OMG, lucky, lucky people in the audience. He says he skated like ten years ago…. skated for himself and the audience. Gachinski beginning to develop his own style. I'm a fan! Team Mishin

    Well done Amodio! A bonus to see him and Morozov so overjoyed
