Chan barely held on to the bronze. Hanyu's bauer is as good and better than quite a few of the ones done by the women.
Wish they would outlaw sequins and lace.

If Evan Lysacek was watching this event by any chance one can bet good money he will put his comeback thoughts on ice for good now, lol! He will get embarassed against these guys, even if he regained his 2010 level.
CAN WE CHEER FOR DAI'S NEW COSTUME???? THANK YOU SKATING GODS!!!
I'm so happy for Daisuke. Although his program is still blehh to me I'm still really happy for him. Finally got that GPF gold!!! Tbh, this program was 1000x better to me already with this new black ensemble. But I hope the costume is a work in progress because it's a little...plain atm =/
I had previously thought Takahashi had NO chance vs a clean Chan or Hanyu but perhaps that isnt the case. If he can get close to 180 with all those mistakes he probably can go over 190 in the FS going clean, which wouldnt be easy for even a clean Chan or Hanyu to get. Good to see Takahashi getting the scores he deserves after being the most wuzrobbed skater by far in any discipline last year.
Man, that was a really good event. Top 5 FS scores with a less than 12 pt spread! Congrats Dai! Kinda iffy on the PCS as well, but I don't think it matters too much due to his SP lead. SO PROUD of Yuzuru for that skate
