    Senior Men Qualifying A Results & Notes

    NOTE: Skaters are shown in start # order. The marks shown are what I wrote down as they were announced – there could be mistakes. The ordinals are what my program has calculated, again, there could be mistakes. The placement sometimes will be the official placements (if Skate Canada gets the results out quick enough) or might be what I managed to get down in the second or two that they flashed it on the board. <G> Anyway, it’s better than nothing J

    I’m not perfect on the jumps – sometimes I miss a takeoff, so feel free to make any corrections or ask questions

    Thanks so much for the notes.....Doesn't look like either one of the men's qualifiers was spectacular - the expected names came out on top. Hope they were deliberately holding back so they could give their best to the SP and LP. I'm really looking forward to seeing the guys later in the week. I wonder if, since we're back to the 6.0 system for this competition, Jeff will try that quad? Sandhu will.....
