I see Ross is skating last and after Patrick? Hope he holds up under the pressure!
On the Ice
Go Daisuke!!!! Also best of luck to Brian and Javier and Max! Hope everyone hasa great competition! I'm expecting in the 90's for the top short program scores, because I think this is going to be a great competition! Time to start getting nervous for your favorites...
Nervous for my favorites? At this moment, I'm nervous for everyone! It's almost here...eeek! This Worlds has become far more exciting than I could have expected.
Look at where Ross Miner is positioned. Talk about stressful. I hope he's got really good earphones to block everything out.
ETA: One of my favorite things is to look at the list of names. It's so diverse, from Mongolia, the Philippines, Kazakhstan, everywhere. I find something beautiful in that.
Tripping on the Podium
Mongolia? I guess you mean Monaco. Kim Lucine skates for Monaco.

Not Mongolia? I confess I'm a bit disappointed. I have to change my mental picture pronto.

I have to say, I thought that Lucine didn't sound very Ural-Altaic. But these days, everyone moves around so much--well, I had hopes. I love watching our sport spread around the world.
I guess that somewhat depends on how Chan skates, but then hopefully not.

More or less: more is more
Alexei BYCHENKO (ISR)
Music: Party Sailor by Wilson Picket; John Rango by James Brown
... freak fall (audience collectively "aww")
CCSp - weak positions
SP: 31.24 + 27.29 - 1.00 = 57.53 (PB)
In 6th (out of 8)
Fun guy Bychenko Yes, Pfeiffer was great! Nice skate from a nice looking guy.
I was really enjoying how light on his feet Byhcenko seemed. Too bad about the fall, but kudos for recovering quickly.
Parkinson needs a good sport psychologist. He looked absolutely terrified from the start.
It's taken him quite a long time to get up. He didn't let it affect the rest of the performance, though.
