What are you talking about? Kozuka did very very well here - he was first in the free skate and won the silver!Originally Posted by sky_fly20
So happy for Song Nan. He's a beautiful skate with nice jumps. He's quite musical as well. Hope he will do well in the next cycle.
Congrats to Mura, Kozuka, and Song Nan! I'm so happy Kozuka is going to continue competing I would have been heartbroken if he retired.

Medal Ceremony (2nd Copy)
9th, 10th & 11th for Canada. Not exactly the greatest placements for our men.
Was reading Jeremy Ten's twitter, and it sounds like he is going to retire after this event. So this was a rough event for the Canadian men.
Missed my world's minimum by .56 for the free. If that's not a sign I don't know what is. Its been fun. Thanks for all the support everyone.
It is always a joy to watch Kozuka skating. Such a light quality and smooth edges. IMO one of the best edge workers at all. I will miss him - and Oda - badly at the Olympics.
The 4CCs "missing" : Michael Christian Martinez (Philippines)
took part at the SKATE HELENA 2014 in Belgrade.
He was the only competitor in his category (senior man).
SP 65.78 (24.1.2014),
FS 123.13 (25.1.2014)
So happy that "Taka" won silver! Crushed that he won't get to compete in Sochi or Worlds, so it was so nice to see him do well here.
