^No because Russia needs more spots!
I've seen Liebers skate live and he actually comes across much better than on the screen.
No voodoo doll for me--Kovtun didn't make the decision and it's not his fault. Oops. Look like the voodoo brigade may be working.
Oh nooo Kovtun
Was it good he did the 1Tcombo there and not with 3Lz?
Program is blah, he has nice spins though!

This music is way too big for Kovtun. Maybe for anybody.
Maxim KOVTUN (RUS)
Music: Lawrence of Arabia (soundtrack) by Maurice Jarre
3A - solid
Big mistake on the quads combo, but the rest was solid.
SP: 32.29 + 33.56 = 65.85
In 4th (out of 19)
Disaster for Kovtun. Could he not have put the combination on to the triple lutz from steps? Top 10 is a big ask now.
Was that actually a 3T1T? 65.85, looks he will be skating in the first group for the free
I think that combo was a 3T-1T, not a quad.
Still, the talent is there, but sooo much pressure for a young guy.
Is that Tarasova in the Kiss & Cry? ETA: looked like a 3T to me also.
I saw triple toe on first combo also.
Max AARON (USA)
Music: Tron Legacy (soundtrack) by Daft Punk
4S+2T - ok, bit forward on 4S
3A - clean, close to the boards
Very solid skate, should take the lead for now.
SP: 43.56 + 34.64 = 78.20 (PB)
In 1st (out of 20)
Obviously one spot for Russia men for sochi
I believe our first Quad of the competition has been landed!
