    I have to look a the ss more closely but between the 4/2 and 3a there isn't much like skate based transitions.

    then thats just terrible bad state, we all know Voronov by international judges standards has very low pcs
    I hope for a Zhenya-Kovtun-Menshov podium after FS , it will be terrible if they let Gachinski medal with his 2 quad falls in FS

    Even though I am not a huge fan of plushenko I cant help but be impressed when he comes out and skates like that after all his injuries and not having competed since last years euros! His 3a was especially good here

    In K&S it is Plushenko with Mishin, David is from team Mishin and the younger one is an athlete of Russia athletics team who has been training off ice Plushenko the last two years, has become his shadow.

    Maybe. But most of people prefer to watch him hundred times as few skater whose program is full of transitions. Exciting to watch Plushenko.

    I think Vitaly is his friend. And yes, his off ice coach.

    I'm disappointed, what happened with Menshov? I hope he will deliver in his free. But the gap is already huge now.

    Yeah, not so much between 6th and 3rd, but it looks like 2nd is almost out of reach for him. :(

    You never know with voronov. He got 95 in 2010 in the Russian nationals sp then lost to Borodulin and menshov as well as winner plushenko in the fs. Menshov could easily get third and then maybe easily beat voronov at euros.

    Oh, never mind. My New Year's resolution is to stop singing that same one-note song.
