    3rd Group:

    Stephane Walker SUI: Bendy skater. Has a thing for weird music choices.
    Franz Streubel GER: Been around for a whiile in the german senior ranks. Finally makes it to Euros.
    Maciej Cieplucha POL: He has finished one spot shy of qualification two times at worlds and two at Euros. Not to mention the olympic qualifier. Hopefully his luck changes today.
    Viktor Romanenkov EST: Had the skates of his life at last year worlds and qualified to Sochi. He's mostly only a jumper though.
    Javier Raya ESP: Javi 2.0 , very artistic but lacks the TES, lucky to be an olympian thanks to the more famous Javi.
    Yakov Godorozha UKR: Surprise Sochi Olympian at Nebelhorn, will compete at the team event aswell.

    Thanks you lucky stars that you do not have to listen to Tonia Kwiatkowski, who commentates for the women and whatever else on Icenetwork. Michael Weiss and Taneth Belbin are much better. I do not understand enough to make sense out of it anything other than English so I like the Eurosport guys best.

    is anyone aware of any national criteria some man has to reach here to be sent to Sochi?
    I've read that Jorick Hendrickx has to be in the top 12, for example.

    she doesnt even know the skater's names never mind totally clueless in TES

    WALKER, Stephane SUI

    Lots of pseudo martial arts moves
    3A<
    3Lz-2T
    3Flip, saved the landing
    Flying camel
    step sequence to a wild party music
    travelling on last spin

    I remember him being more flexible. Those spins were crap for a swiss skater. Totally voidy on music choices, but have no idea what that costume is supposed to represent

    The Eurosport guys make mistakes all the time, miss loads of stuff and have no clue about the skaters.

    No, I liked having Joanne Conway for the female perspective. She's the most successful British Championship skater after Jenna McCorkell, and could draw on her own many experiences.

    Although, I liked her more when she first started.

    The first commentarty she did, she was good, just talking when there was something specific to be said. Just like Simon, Chris and Nicky do.

    The second commentary, she was talking too much.

    The third time, she couldn't shut up, and we barely got to hear the music at all!!!

    So, if she went back to doing the same amount of talking as the guys, it would be perfect.

    STREUBEL, Franz

    Packaged like a poor man's Kristoffer Berntsson
    3A, first clean of the day?
    3S-3t, fall
    Flying sit spin
    3Loop
    Camel Spin
    Needs more charisma on the steps
    Combo spin

    Very lacking on performance skills he looked bored with his own program.

    Streubel: too bad about the fall after the nice 3A.
    But if I ever made it to Euros for the first time, I'd want to show myself to the world with a different music, and... A different jacket.

    CIEPLUCHA, Maciej POL

    Go unlucky polish guy! Make the LP cut please
    3Lz-3T solid
    3 Loop, nice flow
    Flying camel,
    2A
    Cof Sit Spin
    Kissing the audience before steps in charachter
    Lots of choreo breaks in the middle of the sequence
    Combo Spin

    A program similar in concept to Streubel's but it shows how Maciej is really committed to it. It works despite his notorious lack of finesse.

    Well that is good enough. I hope he makes the FS.

    He could have sold the program a bit better, though.

    Great Euros for Poland so far! Clean SP from Kryger and now clean SP from Cieplucha. Wheeee!

    I have a soft spot for Cieplucha but those red gloves were so distracting.
