    Of course it will be more awesome if it was a 3-3, but hey I hope that will come later.
    It was indeed a 3-3! Very impressed by him.

    I think he was exhausted. That program is jammed packed! He doesn't really take a break in the beginning cause of the 2 quads and the 3A and then after two spins he does three combos back to back. Two quads, six triples. Pretty intense stuff!

    Kudos and congrats.

    I am adding Dornbush to my short list of Men with nice Donut spins, with Plushenko(!) and Han Yan. Those with ugly ones who shouldn't are Hanyu and J Brown.

    He's like this when he has a very good performance, actually. But unfortunately he doesn't always have very good performances I can understand not liking it though.
    It might seem that he always does this because he did at Worlds, which was his last competition.

    Hanyu almost always staggers off the ice seemingly unable to breathe. It's his thing.

    Dornbush doesn't really get into a circular position though. It's kinda like be only bends his knees and not his back. I prefer Hanyu's donut spin b/c it's nice and circular, but one spin that I think Hanyu and should never do is the outside edge forward camel. To me it looks bad b/c he looks like he is dangling his arms to get onto the outside edge. I dislike it even more than his biellmann spin.

    Then what he needs to do is incorporate more rests in his program, because - asthma or not - him flopping around all over the ice at the end is unbecoming and a huge turn off. And I'm actually a fan!

    Well, in his defense, he is not "flopping around all over the ice", he's just flopping on the centre of the ice rink (lol). But I'll give the kid a break, he's obviously too tired to think about his presentation.

    Nan Song had barely recovered from a serious illness before his 2011 4CC skate at high altitude. He staggered off the ice with purple lips and various senses shut down, but he held off the actual collapse and was hospitalized after.

    And I'm sure if it's a problem, Orser will give him a talking to!

    I like Hanyu's music, but after watching the video, I'm not enamored of the choreography and don't see that much musical interpretation going on. Lots of histrionic flailing. I think he was indeed overscored on PCS, IMO he's a 7's level skater not the 8's at least on performance and interpretation. Fernandez was better on that dimension in this competition.

    A talking to once in a while is good but the kid is still growing up. At least he has ditched Winnie The Pooh.
