    Daisuke TAKAHASHI (JPN)

    Music: Yesterday by John Lennon, Paul McCartney; Come Together by John Lennon, Paul McCartney; Friends and Lovers by George Martin; In My Life by by John Lennon, Paul McCartney; Presto (The Long and Winding Road) by John Lennon, Paul McCartney

    Black pants, cream pleated shirt

    4T - stepout, rotation maybe borderline < on replay
    3Lz - nice exit edge
    3A - bit forward on landing
    StSq
    FCSSp
    3A+2T - turn in-between
    3Lz+3T - landed, not much speed out
    1Lo
    3F
    2S
    FCCoSp - very wobbly camel after jump entry
    ChSt
    CCoSp

    He seemed okay at start, but made some stupid mistakes at the end. Still, love his presence and presentation

    Score: 72.40+86.72 = 159.12, 236.21, in 2nd out of 4

    Takahashi should seriously consider retirement now, that error-filled FS is just not going to make it.

    Well Dai got a nice reaction. Nice to see the audience involved in it.

    Was Dai's program strong enough for the olympics? Not sure the music is big enough.

    Other than the jumps, I think Dai's program is starting to grow on me. The cuts are still a little awkward and the problem is that it doesn't really build at the end. His step sequences are still beautiful though.

    Daisuke was great for the past times (like in 2010) but I think that his time have past, he should think of retirement after this season.

    I hope that he will stop skating after this season because he is not able to land those quads consistency, please don't do a male version of Fumie Suguri ...

    I love the program...His technical elements are weak. He lost some points on spins.

    Kozuka, great shirt. Rippon could do without the sparkles

    DT's Score : 72.40 + 86.72 = 159.12

    Extremely generous scores considering he had 7 errors in his program.
