I agree but, it wouldn't test his skills or push him forward. I think this was better than Japan open. Hope it gets better by the next round.

I agree. And his hair. Where's the makeover police!

Ugh, this has been a disappointing SA men's event to say the least.
Hoping the top 3 can turn the event around and all of them make the podium!
More or less: more is more
Adam RIPPON (USA)
Music: L'après-midi d'un faune (Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun) by Claude Debussy
Black pants. Brown draped tight shirt w/sparkle
4Lz - fall into boards, at least <
3Lo - EA entry
3Lz+2T+2Lo - 'Rippon lutz
3Lz - 'Rippon
Mistakes on the big jumps, but overall not too bad. He has really improved his speed and flow across the ice
Score: 79.90+82.08-1=160.98 (PB), 241.24 (PB), and in 1st (out of 6)
Adams program is exquisite. Who cares about the mistakes.
I swear Adam Rippon has one of the most beautiful programs I have ever seen under COP.
Adam is a vision. Such delicacy and grace. Too bad about the 4lz and the second axel.
I like Adam's LP especially with the Najinski references. Would go over well in Sochi.
That was one beautiful program from Adam.
I LOVE the new Rippon under Arutunian!!!!
Ever so fluid and nice skating.
leave no stone unturned
Kozuka should always have higher PCs than he gets I don't know more than two skaters with better ss than him
Thank you Adam for this skate.
