    ^^ thanks, his jumps reminds me of young Yuzuru. not much power but very secure, you are not worried at all when he goes into a jump that he will land it.

    He impresses me the most with his mentality and consistency I think. He just seemed to be unfazed and not nervous at all. Orser is a proud papa indeed!

    The men's field needs more skaters like Nam.

    So excited for Nam! I was at my little sisters birthday party when I read he won his first title and I literally threw my hands up and yelled 'yes!' and then had to explain to the room of teenagers that figure skating is a very important sport

    He has done much better than expected. To see all 3 Cricket brothers in top 5 was just the best thing ever.^^ Before the last group start I was like "Omg, he's actually in position for a medal" but considering who was skating next, it would have required a big disaster for most skaters to happen considering the SP scores. And that's not something you wish to see (though it did happen a lot. I particulary felt bad for Sergei )
    That will give him confidence and motivation for the next year. I'm looking foward to seeing what he'll plan.
