....bizarre results. I did not see that coming.
I have to say that Kevin Reynolds has improved his presentation a lot over the past few years. But improvement doesn't explain the PCS he got tonight. He still has way too many issues for me to agree with that PCS. I guess it's the three-quad bonus/boost.

I'm just checking in. I can't bear to look back after seeing the last two pages. What happened to Daisuke? Look where he is in the results. I can't stand it. Poor Daisuke.
Congratulations to Kevin, though. How nice for him to have a win.

I predict he'll need one in short and two in long. His PCS will be great, but the pace of technical advancement has become really noticeable. As we've seen, PCS is not always enough to chase down a superlative jump-filled skate.

That's the standard nowadays so I'm confident he'll need no less. We might even see 3 quads in the FS if Kevin makes big strides at Worlds. If Evan doesn't meet the standard, I don't understand why he would even bother coming back. He got OGM, he should just leave it at that.

Wow!! Kevin!! Congratulations on your winning 4CC, but where was 3F-3Lo which I was looking forward to? He looked very happy on the podium and I'm happy for that.
I don't know what happened to Daisuke, but I believe he will come back in good shape to Worlds.

Then why don't they? Because it does take stamina to back load programs, and you get more points that way.

A strange thing: out of 13 edge calls, 10 were for the flip, only 3 for the lutz. Why is that? All the guys that received an "e" on the flip landed a 3Lz correctly.

The skating world is being turned topsy turvey By the time of Sochi the old guard is going to face a lot of competition.

Reynolds was amazing. o_O As I watched him skating, I felt he was almost angelic. o_o (I know, a bit stupid association of thoughts.) I liked Aaron and Yan very much, too, only if the latter hadn't fallen that badly... But Hanyu and Takahashi... Ayayay, they were actually disappointing, even though the former won the silver medal.

Patrick Chan who? Ah, is this perhaps the biggest upset in figure skating history? Someone said 80 for pcs and guesss what 80 on the button and really guys while he is not Dai or Chan he has really upped his level of skating sure it helps when you skate clean and fairly fast.. give him credit but did he peak too soon? I am wondering if thejudges will give him alittle more credit because sometimes I feel he gets undermarked. Skate Canada must be thrilled; still a shocker - great job by Max aaron but really this is a momen tin history bigger than Liz Manley's oly silver or Maria Butyrskaya's or Kimmie Meissner's world titles. Just a shocker - Canada was hoping he would be in the top ten or eight at worlds. Yes, the big guns fell but still.

ISU, stop promoting 2-foot skating!
To answer your question, I'd have to mark every single skater in both SP and FS and then calculate the results and since I don't have the ISU software, I'd have to do it all manually, which would take a month.

Congrats to Kevin! Yuzu was so boring. Diasuke?!! I really hope he will be in good shape in London..

It was sad to watch Olympia. We may never know what happened. I am waiting to hear his press release.

I think Jeremy has enough to cry about than this. But I have to say whle Reynolds is no Lambiel, Chan, Buttle, Tak,Hanyu or Fernandez he isn't horrific. Dai was way off.. This will motivate Kevin to work on his skating skills. I also wonder, I thoughtis 4S was more reliable. I wonder if he could drop a trple for the quad. Even with a fall wouldn't he score better?
