97 is huge score. Hanyu is overscored again.
Lets see if his stamina lasts to the end tomorrow.
I am hugely disappointed by Kozuka`s score. I thought his performance was better than GPF.
Anyway, I will be glad if he manages to be on podium tomorrow.
I completly agree that Hanyu's win isn't set - especially since at national competitions scores tend to be higher in general, and an 8 point lead is not worth as much as in an international event. And the men started to post crazily high scores anyway.Originally Posted by herios
But even if Hanyu isn't likely to skate a clean LP - how many of these man are to begin with? Takahasi, Kozuka, Oda?
Additionally, Hanyu became better with his FS last season from event to event too - till now, he did the same in his 3 GP events. I don't expect him to have a complete meltdown again.
Anyway, no matter what he does tomorrow, I'm still in awe he just managed a score like that for the 3rd time this season! If he just continues like that in his worlds SP (at this point, there's no way he's not making the team), I think he might just break his own record again! And again, I already had high expectations for him before the season started, and he just surpassed them... I'm a little afraid what he'll be like next year
