    I've never been a vocal cheerleader of Kevin Reynolds, but my goodness, has he ever arrived on the international scene with these performances! I feel he hasn't gotten the respect he probably deserves for the improvements in his skating over the past year until now. Good for him!

    Dai is bombing, Kevin won! I am in absolute shock. Japan Figure skating federation should not have sent Dai and Yuzu here, I've said yesterday. They needed a break after that nail biting nationals. You can see they are exhausted from all the pressure and the media.

    Daisuke TAKAHASHI (JPN)

    Music: I Pagliacci by Ruggero Leoncavallo

    4T - twofooted, perhaps UR (rotation looked ok on replay)
    4T+2T - twofooted on 4T (UR on replay)
    3A - stepout
    FCCoSp
    StSq
    LSp
    3A - fall, no combo
    3Lo
    3S
    3Lz - twofooted, stepout
    3F
    ChSt
    CCoSp

    Too many mistakes, perhaps enough for bronze if his PCS hold up

    Congrats to Kevin for his first 4CC title! And now I wonder where Daisuke is going to place: there are 5 mistakes in the 5 most difficult jumps...

    I love Daisuke, but he made too many mistakes.

He did get 6.5ish On transitions, which is relatively low compared to the 8+ scores the medalists get at Worlds or even the GP. IDK, it seems he was given pretty fair scores.
    My issue with his program is the long nap in the middle of it. Many could back load their programs if they pretty much stopped and rested for a minute. Flow and stamina ought to be factored in to the score. Also the choreography is like he is making it up as he goes along.

    What Broadway plays have you seen where the performers look completely bored and unemotional/uninspired to the music they are performing to? I was never a Ryan Bradley fan either, but he should be claiming robbery right now because he was a much better performer than Max Aaron and I don't believe he ever got a 72 in PCS internationally, certainly not on his senior international debut at an ISU championship.

    Are you kidding? His basic skating is nowhere near most of the guys he competed against. Shallow edges and not a lot of speed. His jumps were of quite poor quality, tight and barely rotated. A lot of cheats.

    He seemed to move to the music most of the time but why did he pick a classical piece of music when he isn't balletic and his posture and lines aren't very strong?

    I find this score absolutely ridiculous.
