Shoma UNO (JPN)
StSq - very nice
2A - stepout, hand down
Shame about the 2A, but he's got great presentation at age 15
SP: 31.45 + 30.21 = 61.66
in 3rd (out of 27)
June Hyoung LEE (KOR)
Music: Capone by Ronan Hardiman
3A - twofooted, stepout
3Lz - fall, no combo
The fall on the combo is going to cost him...
SP: 28.19 + 26.96 - 1.00 = 54.15
in 6th (out of 28)
Don't understand the Hino hype. He's rather stiff and suffers from airplane arms.
Ryuju HINO (JPN)
Music: TaTaKu (best of Kodo) by Tetsuro Naito, Motofumi Yamaguchi
1Lz+3T - turn in-between
3F - e, very tilted, but landed (on inside edge)
Big mistake on the combo. He needs to work on more expression and his arm movements.
SP: 30.14 + 27.57 = 57.71
in 6th (out of 29)
He Zhang has a nice loose style, very musical.
He ZHANG (CHN)
Music: Minnie the Moocher (from Blues Brothers soundtrack) by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
Sing Sing Sing by Louis Prima
2A - commentators says he planned 3A
3Lz+3T - e, foot down early
Some invisible flaws, but nice presentation.
SP: 31.64 + 28.78 = 60.42
in 5th (out of 30)
Jason Brown is a gorgeous skater. And he nailed the 3A, too bad about the combo. Will lead, and by some margin I guess
*running around in circles shrieking* BEST YET! BEST YET! BEST YET! GO JASON!
Jason BROWN (USA)
Music: The Question of U by Prince
3A - looked nice
3Lz+2T - turn in-between
StSq - very creative and detailed
Nice to see him land the 3A, but shame about the combo.
SP: 36.62 + 33.44 = 70.06 (SB) - solid score
am I in error in thinking the set-up time for his 3x is a little too long?
