Various media and sources have published their views and rating of this and that skater. Here's the stuff that IFS suggest: http://www.ifsmagazine.com/polls/20-...nese-nationals
Cutting Edge 2013 Fan Book came up with their rating of the Skater #1:Dai, #2:Yuzu, #3:Kozuka, #4:Oda, #5:Machida, #6:Mura, #7:Murakami (withdrew), #8:Nakamura, #9:Tanaka, #10:Hino, #11:Shoma http://twitpic.com/e/2ksj
Anyway, the final result will show up here:
During tonight's sport news on TV, Shizuka who attended the official practice says that Nobunari was in the best condition among the top six boys.
And I would agree, 'cause in that short news video clip, Nobu landed gorgeous 4T-3T like nothing! Yuzu also landed 4T and 4S effortlessly, with his usual great flow on its landings. Dai hit 4T and 4T-2T, too, but both with a bit shaky landings.
Thanks let's talk for all the links!
Hmm...interesting, I do think Oda will be the underdog. So many people/everyone has dismissed him and I think he's definitely used this to his advantage by being motivated all the more to prove us wrong. But might not be enough. Although I do wish for another 3bros world team, Yuzu ain't gonna let that happen.
This is so absolutely nerve wrecking. Even though Daisuke is my favourite, I want them all to do well. I almost can't stand the tension. I'm so excited and at the same time scared. The pressure is high for this and I feel bad for those who will miss out already.
So the SP is at 4:50 Japan time Friday, which would be 11:50 p.m. Pacific time. Which means by the time I wake up tomorrow, the SP would have happened! Crazy. Can't wait to see everything unfold.
I am so nervous, as everyone else already said! There is a lot of pressure at this competition for them! Good luck to all, but to Daisuke especially.
