    Well he got 2nd and won the free skate, so I'd say he belongs on the international stage. The first place skater fell multiple times and there were several rough performances. I'd say Adam did more than fine at this competition. Good for him for getting out there so quickly after an injury & with a new LP

    Marchei (after bad SP) repeated her Euro's FS even a bit better than at Euro.
    Congratulations to Vale and Haruka!

    "2hd youth" of Vale? Progress in about the same age, when Suzuki progressed to Worlds medalist.

    Both Polina and Karen are good, talented girls.
    Hope to see them at JGP, and Polina also at Senior Nationals (who knows, maybe she will earn ISU Senior Championship there).

    Haruka Imai and Takahiko Kozuka SP and FS.
    Amateur video, not very good.

    This blogger started the translation of the interview with Taka published in the spring issue of Figure Skating Days Plus. The interview was taken two months after JN, some info on about his mood and conditions before Gardena:

    Congratulations to all medalists! , especially to those who had a rather disappointing season but redeemed themselves and had gutsy performances here! Am so happy for them, cause they at least could end the season with relief and good feelings!

    At the same time a bit sad for Valentina and Haruka; if only they could have skated this good...at the Euro/Worlds for Vale and at J-Nats for Haruka. I really loved Vale's programs both SP and FS this season, and Mozart music is perfect choise for Haruka cause it suits her skating so well!

    Am so thrilled to know that Shu Nakamura won the Jr Men's silver here, who btw trains at Nagamitsu/Honda camp! Good luck to Shu at JGP circuit next season!

    Novice winners Chen and Zhou protocols are very interesting. With the exception of Karen Chen's fall in the SP, every one of her and Zhou's other SP and FS elements were given positive GOE's and even some +3's. Can't wait until we can see them on the JGP circuit.

    Sure was impressive to see Adam compete with a program which he essentially just had choreographed

    ^And first event back form an injury. Not surprised to see he didn't attempt a triple axel in the long. It's not his bread and butter jump, it's basically still the old season, recovering from injury AND new program. But to skate with seven really nice triples and two lovely double axels at this point is very impressive.

    I think this piece suits him well and I look forward to seeing it develop assuming he sticks with this. Glad he's done with The Incredibles... From the video it also looked like he had a lot of good speed.

    Congrats to him and Kozuka! (And Valentina and everyone else!)

    Adam's FS was great! Tom D. choreography is a winner for Adam.
