Joshua Farris is in the lead with 14 points difference with an elegant program, followed by Japan's Keiji Tanaka and Russia's Adian Pitkeev.

Jumps are good. He is very elegant. But the program has no energy. A deserved lead, but I didn't like it so much.

Comparing to Joshua's program, this one is more energetic. But the jumps are weaker and the final spin was bad.

Just born in 1998, he is very promising in his JGP debut. He will be more successful next years, when he gets a triple axel. Very nice.
The points seem so low, not a very big competition. Farris will get gold for sure. Hoping to see a more interesting long program.
