So Sean Rabbit --- his dad is pretty awesome. When there was a big robbery at my local rink ( my friend is one of the volunteers who runs it) his dad had the Glacier Falls FSC donate $500 to help the rink recover.
Also enjoyed Sean in the choreography competition.
LOVE Sean... I think this is the first time I've seen him skate... how entertaining!
3Z - step out
he seems happy with that and looks like he had a lot of fun!
I think for next year's nationals, we should have a drinking game and take a shot everytime we see Tammy Gambill.
31.54 + 31.33 = 62.87 ( 9th out of 13 skaters)
Oh yikes, Adam is looking soooo good, and I think with confidence on his jumps (certainly he's improved under Rafael) that Adam is definitely a lot more mature and obviously a better overall skater than either Josh Farris and Max Aaron who are currently in the lead. Josh didn't do a quad, and even though Max did, he needs more presentation skills, and Max (if he made the team) would not be treated with a great deal of respect by international judges in a Worlds debut, especially having never competed on the senior GP.
I hate that the quad jump requirement has turned the sport so upside down and inside out. Components should matter more, instead of being largely used to manipulate placements!!! The judges are definitely not inflating here for sure, and that's not a bad thing, but what does it say to international judges about how the U.S. rates the quality of its skaters???
Tonchelle it's your guy!!!
I do love this SP though... perfect for his personality.
You are so much fun to watch!
3A - step out
4T - fall, DG?
3F-3T - wonky landing, UR on the second jump
Not his best, but entertaining as well. I like how low to the ground he gets with his sit spin.
32.53 + 32.53 - 1 =64.06 (9th out of 14 skaters)
oh dear. (((rozanno)))
3A - fall
3L - step out
3T-3T - ok
Not his night....
31.89 + 32.42 -1 63.31 (10th out of 15 skaters)
Standings after Group 3
Joshua Farris 44.07 + 34.71 = 79.78
Max Aaron 45.49 + 33.64 = 79.13
Richard Dornbush 40.10 + 37.56 = 77.66
Adam Rippon 39.97 + 37.68 – 1 = 76.65
Jason Brown 38.52 + 36.53 -1 = 74.05
Jonathan Cassar 31.67 + 35.36 = 67.03
Phillip Warren 35.37 + 31.11 = 66.48
Keegan Messing 32.53 + 32.53 - 1 =64.06
Douglas Razzano 31.89 + 32.42 -1 63.31
Armin Mahbanoozadeh 30.84 + 33.01 -1 62.85
Sean Rabbitt 31.54 + 31.33 = 62.87
Stephen Carriere 28.80 + 33.97 = 62.77
Alexander Johnson 32.91 + 33.29 -1 = 62.20
Harrison Choate 27.52 + 30.14 = 57.66
Wesley Campebll 25.57 + 31.67 = 57.24
So crazy that 4 out the 5 skaters on top are from the first group.
First three skaters scores still holding up. That was one loaded group of skaters.
It's also worth noting that only two men have done a quad -- Max and Richard. In the first group.
Go William Brewster!
Go Grant Hochstein! (You passed up Michelle Kwan's wedding for this -- better make it count! )
