    Italian Federation actually had a clear criteria based on results so I can't really complain...

    Hardly any relation to the music in Parr's program.

    lol - he did land one more clean jump than I expected him to... (1)
    But then, I didn't expect him to step out of the spin, so let's call it even

    PARKINSON, Bonifacio ITA

    He looks like the Riddler on that costume
    4S< attempt, splat
    3A saved it
    Low level campel spin
    3Lz
    Cof Sit Spin
    Another Footowork sequence to techno arrangement
    Messes up on last spin.

    I don't know why they think that going techno in the middle of a clssi music program is a good idea.
    At least he didn't bomb.

    VIRTANEN, Valtter FIN

    3F almost falls and sits on the ice.
    2A
    3Loop-3T splat on second combo
    Camel Spin
    The step sequence lasted forever.
    Flying Sit Spin

    No real attempt to show some charachter and this music demands it.
    Clearly out of form understandably since he didnt knew he was coming until days ago

    I hate to keep on bashing the poor olympian guy, but... it must have been the word "combo" that stressed him out

    About him having more "italian qualifying points" than Righini: he had several low-class competitions where he performed badly, compared to Righini who couldn't compete for Italy until recently, and once he could, got far better results than Parkinson.
    So I guess this is a good example of how it can be complicated to install a system of points to qualify for the Olympics, as is being discussed a lot in the US now: there are unfortunate situations where the points don't tell the whole truth...

    Thanks for the explanation. It's very unfortunate. :(

    ATANNASOV, Manoll BUL

    3T-3T< hand down
    Combo Spin
    Nice entry into 2A
    Soft steps
    3 tano Lutz - good
    sit Spin
    Dramatic end pose

    He showed real commitment to his choreo and moved to the music well enough. I think he should lead on PE and IN definetly.

    Wait, wait... You're not Russian?

    I can understand quite a bit because Slavic languages are very similar. The older guy actually makes a lot of interesting, detailed observations and has a real love and a lot of knowledge of the sport. This guy just talks crap.

    I do not agree. This guy is better. He knows the figure skaters and the sport very good. And he do not speak so much like the other commentator.
