Men's FS JGP Croatia 2012
Maxim scored FS of 149.72
apparently he did 4T-2T , 3A-3T, 3A in his FS
his PCS still has a lot for improvement but
I must say Kovtun has more potential than some of the other Russian men like the Gachinski

Kovtun was great and fulfilled expectations for this jgp event and surpassed them.
If Russia gets 2 spots for men in the Olympics

imo, Gachinski isn't very much reliable, his not so good records speak for it self
At this point Gachinski does have higher PCS from the Russian compeition judges and Kovtun really has to beat him head to head at a russian nationals and/or Euros. I am not sure when Kovtun is going senior. Maybe he will enter senior russian nationals this year and try to go senior worlds and euros and not aim for junior worlds but some defeat of gachinski is necessary I think to remove gachinski from the judges favor.

This is kind of a weird comparison, but does anyone see how I could think that Kovtun and Butyrskaya are similar? I think it's the way that they land their jumps - there's an awkward elegance about both of them.
