    The second tier japanese skaters need to bring it on anywhere where they skate, to tell the favorites, that there is not going to be an automatic coronation for them at the nationals. This will benefit automatically all of them, as they pull each other up.

    Great. We have a quadless winner in SP. I wonder why Jeremy didn't get any 9 in PCS. If skating safe policy works for one guy, why shouldn't it work for another. His BV is 4th only, which means three other guys, including that Belgian dude with no titles, had balls to challenge tougher stuff.

    Waiting for FS tomorrow.

    Jeremy will have a quad in LP. Good luck, Jeremy!

    But it was OK when Machida got 85 with a quadless SP in China? No need to answer

    I totally agree! I love to see that six different skaters in Japan could potentially be GP medalists! (We have no U.S. men as GP medalists so far, hoping that Jeremy could end THAT streak....)

    Very happy for Jeremy´s 1st place, well deserved! Huh, Joubert got 6.86 for his non-existing transitions... and it was only 1 point less than Abbott´s transitions score.

    Nice performance for Jeremy and well done to Mura, Joubert and Hendrickx as well.

    Verner, Besseghier and Amodio - I don't even know where to start.

    Song must have gotten through his program on willpower... I still can't believe he's competing. Joubert's illness was no joke either, from the articles I've read - and he didn't even start training again until this past Monday. I hope they will both be able to skate well in the LP.

    Why no need. No it wasn't okay. That's why skating safe policy is a dangerous thing. Will move around ....

    Oh, dear... And the Tragi-Comedy of Errors continues in the Men's Event...

    But on the bright side for me as a Brian-fan - not perfect, not his - normal - best, but a good effort, and I was happy to see it. I think he did try to go out there and have fun, and he looked satisfied with his score - so I'm content. Also, not having aced his short, at least he won't have reason to headcase his free. Yes, I think one should always have a positive attitude.

    Note: Saint-Saens seems really to be "in" this year, doesn't he?

    Commentator comment: I do wish the Swedish Eurosport commentator would stop calling it Trophée Eric Bombard...

    The first 6- anyone could medal, the gaps are not huge between skaters.

    You could look at the handle and guess who would drag PC into a thread where he is not even competing...the best thing is just to scroll down and ignore.

    Very good for Jeremy. He pulled that out well. It's such a well-choreographed program and he delivered, even though it wasn't his absolute best skate (shaky on some of the spins; but he overcame his nerves well and landed that 3-axel cleanly -- it will be interesting to see his GOEs). Good strategy to leave out the quad, especially with the weak field/ weak results. Jeremy was fortunate to be skating last. It seemed that he changed the set-up/ placement for his ending pose, coming out the spin and going into the pay-off position, rather than swaggering to the boards and turning around as he'd done earlier at SA. Glad he will get to skate last in the fp too. Hope he manages those nerves and skates his beautiful fp the way he can.

    I would be happy to see the top three standings hold up as is after the fp!

    Amodio too... And with no jump + one spin missing he still manage not to finish last. 13.85 pt for two falls... Thanks wonderful COP.
    Under 6.0 this would never happen. Let's not talk about Amodio 7 in performance/execution for his worst skate ever. Or 7.4 for empty choreo.
