    What´s the name of the Russian commentator on Xsport? I heard the name Zagorodnyuk. Is it really the former Ukrainian figure skater?

    Nan Nguyen... A name to remember. So he's been skating junior? Finished 16th in his last JGP? Wow. What an unexpectedly good performance. He's so young and tiny too! I felt he tried to hard to 'look senior' what with the heavy funeral music. Hopefully he'll grow a bit and his jumps grow with him...

    Yes, it's Viacheslav Zagorodniuk and Xsport is Ukrainian channel, not Russian.

    I'm back. Sad to see I missed Farris' skate.

    Adam RIPPON (USA)

    Music: L'après-midi d'un faune (Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun) by Claude Debussy

    Black pants. Brown draped shirt w/ crystals

    3A+2T
    3A - stepout
    3Lo
    FCCoSp
    CCSp
    2A
    1F - mean to be 3F+3T
    StSq
    3Lz - 'Rippon', stepout
    3Lz - 'Rippon', no combo?
    3S
    CCoSp

    Threw away a lot of points no doing his two planned combos. At least he finally landed a triple axel

    FS: 64.68+75.62 = 140.30, 213.20, in 3rd (out of 17)

    Well... Right now Zagorodniuk is speaking Russian, so you were right about the language. I don't know if he even knows Ukrainian. It's an official language there but most people speak Russian, though.

    ETA: but you can hear Ukrainian language in commercials between skates

    I don't speak Russian, but "karashò" means "good", "well done".
