    How is Florent's PC almost the same as Oda's?!?!
    Well it's not fair, but Oda's been out of the scene for nearly a year -- and his last competition was a 7th place finish at TEB....similar thing to what they did to Kozuka at SKAM.

    Well....I hope he does even better at LP!

    But Fernandez...that was amazing. Can't believe he's doesn't look that pleased with 85....probably secretly comparing himself to Yuzu's score :P

    Typical judging dumpage. Oda went from being the 2nd Japanese to being the 4th Japanese male after 2 very bumpy seasons. He has so many times been positioned to medal at Worlds only to make costly mistake time and time and time again. His reputation to the judges has suffered along with his lack of consistency. I think the inclination in the judges' minds is that they've given up on him. He needs to consistently produce performances like he did today in order to see his PCS marks rise.

    Right, let's save 13 off the current WR to make room.

    Makes sense, though he technically never finished 4th at Japanese nationals. But yes, I guess in the judges eyes that is how they see it.

    Thanks so much for the videos - I tried to download the hulu thing several times and it didn't work. Anyway, thus far, I've only seen Oda, and I have to say, I'm so glad he is back. I thought he looked great. Will be interesting to see the protocols, but although he might be disappointed, I was thrilled to watch him skate.

    The videos are great, thanks. Amodio: He fell twice. Why does he only have -1 deduction?

    Still, he is the only one of the top 4 Japanese males who have never medaled at Worlds despite attending that event 5 times.

    Having not seen either program -- it is a bit silly that Javiar has better SS scores than Nobunari "soft knees" Oda....

    After looking at Elladj's skate, he should definitely be in front of Ten. I haven't seen Amodio yet. Elladj skated great. What does he have to do to get great marks? Elladj deserves at least 76-78 range for his clean performance. I don't care about PCS, Elladj may need more polishing, but he skated better here than Denis. If they are going to put Elladj in front of Ross, then he should be in front of Denis too.

    That is true. Well golly, can't we just send the top five at Japanese Nationals to Worlds this year? Pretty please?!
