personal best from Euros 2012 and that with an sp of 84 with no quad or quad combo in Lp. At these Euros I expect that the men with two different quads Fernandez, Brezina and Amodio could surpass him, but thats in the papers.
But at least I will try it with my broken English about Chan's first quad. I'll explain it my way.
Not with 90 right,4/1,
Chan's first quad - If you see the blade of Chan (at the point of take-off and landing)
It's nearly in line not like Daisuke's combo jump. There is nothing wrong in Chan's rotation.
just see that jumps on youtube. It's the much better way.
You can see the difference.Chan's jump, Daisuke's combo That's all I can say.

I found Takasha PCS werid. How he could have the same marks for transitions and SS with Chan?
And Dai had mistkes in every jump, but judges didnt want to see this. Why?
Hope Fernandez will win ECh this season.
I mentioned Abott because his win at Nationals had made a big impact, I remember Eurosport guys commented on that too, and he had fantastic programs that season.
There is someone who trust the judges perfectly. Good for them.
Another obvious UR jump.
Mao's flip jump in the SP at GPF.
Of course They don't give a <
Such a generous judge.
If you see this jump You can get it.
No need evidence. Just need eyes.

Mod note: please remember to speak of the topic/reply to what's said in a post. Don't bicker and insult each other. We want to keep GS a friendly place for ALL opinions on SKATING.
As for Chan he had an injury mar mediocre season in 09/2010 and was never likely to be a big factor in Vancouver either, although he still was more of a threat than say Kozuka so seniorita should have replaced Kozuka with Chan in his/her comments. Kozuka like Weir was never a real contender in Vancouver, even Oda was more a potential contender than those two (which still wasnt much). The main contenders were always Plushenko, Lysacek, Takahashi, Lambiel, Abbott because of his Nationals performance though a total meltdown would surprise nobody, and perhaps Joubert, Chan and Oda.

It seems that some people don’t know how to identify under-rotated jumps, or they know but don’t want to admit it when their favorites under-rotate jumps. As requested by some posters in this and other threads, I’m going to start a thread on this and will show you what are UR jumps, using Takahashi’s many UR jumps at GPF as examples.
Here's some advice, which I am sure you will ignore: if you want to demonstrate what URd jumps look like, find examples of such jumps performed by skaters who are no longer active in competitive skating. There's no shortage of those and it'll make you seem less trollish.
A pity that IP's interesting thread has been derailed by this silly bickering about URs and overscoring.
Plus, just like someone showed picture of why a lift is illegal, when active skaters UR their jumps but are not called, or when active skaters have no steps preceding their solo jumps in the SP, I believe figure skating fans are obliged to point this out.
If you don’t like to see UR discussion in this nice thread, then I started an UR thread, so hopefully we can remove the UR discussion from this nice thread.
His skate leaves the ice a few degrees past the point where it would be facing the back board. This means his skate needs to land a few degrees past the point where it would be perpendicular to the camera. He definitely did that; he skate lands about 45 degrees past the point where it would be perpendicular to the camera.
