    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
    If he keeps this up maybe we might see Kovtun over Gachinski ?

    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.

    US Figure Skating tweets that Nathan Chen withdrew due to an injured lower leg. He will be evaluated back in the US, after he returns.

    Is Han Yan definitely out of GPF?

    Unless Kovtun tanks next week, then yes. 3 men have already qualified (Farris, Brown, Jin) and both Hino and Tanaka are ahead of Yan in the standings as is. Kovtun with a 6th place or higher in Germany would still slot in ahead of Yan, and there's also Samarin who had a 3rd place at his first event that would qualify before Yan with a 3rd place or higher. So I think the only way Yan gets in is if Samarin places 4th or lower AND Kovtun places 6th or lower - which is unlikely to happen. Shotaro Omori could also bump Yan down a spot if he's 2nd or higher. So really, I highly doubt Yan will qualify. Shocking really.

    Shocking is 5th place of Han Yan in Slovenia.
    About zero chance to Final is abolutely predictable result of 5th place.
