    He did the jumps, but he clearly had a tough time with the levels on his spins. He's second by a hair.

    Yan quite good technically (although flying camel was a bit of a mess) but another blank-faced performance with unextended movements. SS is gorgeous but he needs performance skills training.

    Brown is really winning me over in terms of whether he should go to Sochi... even without a quad, it's clear that he's the best US men's skater.

    If he gets a quad, he will be a multiple World medalist in the next quadrennial.

    Hoping he can hold it together for the FS!

    Interesting, looking at the PCS, the judges actually did not do the corridor thing.

    Han beat Jason in SS (7.75 vs 7.46) and they were close in choreography (7.75 for Jason vs 7.64; you could argue Jason should have a bigger lead) but Jason basically beat him handily in transitions, performance/execution and interpretation.

    If he gets that quad is a big if! I hope it doesn't take him as long as it did for him to master the 3A. Actually I don't think it would. He seems to do quite well with toe pick jumps.

    Boy, what I would give now for a non-freezing stream! Any suggestions out there? Any Russian feeds?

    The fever clearly affected his performance--he probably had to put his energy on hitting the technical elements. He had a lot more energy and emoted better at CoC.

    It's still corridor. Yan's other PCS are only a tiny bit lower than his SS, when in reality his SS is far superior to any other aspects of his skating.

    And when you look at Brown's PCS, there's a bit of a spread there but still only 0.6 or so.

    Thanks Mrs. P! Hopefully he'll be included when British Eurosport show the highlights in a few hours time (if the tennis is over...)

    By the way, my stream froze AGAIN during the warm up! Grrrr!!!!

    Well I guess I should clarify it's sill less corridor than it usually. Baby steps, Ziggy!

    He does 4toe in practice. Probably not consistent enough yet to include in his programs.

    Thanks, I didn't realise he was ill. It makes more sense now as he looked quite pale.

    Eurosport froze for me too, but Sport2 is fine:

    edit: now it's erratic and pixelated again...

    Poor Yan Han, looked ill, Jason skated great, is it possible for him to get the quad in time for Solchi?

    Not splating so far....

    And then goes and does a 2-3 combo.

    His TES is well below Jason. Curious what kind of PCS he'll get.
