    Practice Reports

    Do you have any practices reports from various sources?
    So far I m reading from US twitter account

    Patrick Chan lands two quads, one in combo with a double toe, and his 3A in his short program run-through.
    After hitting quad-triple in warm-up, @jeremyabbottpcf nails it again in his SP run through. Great skate.
    Excellent spins, strong jumps and the choreo and footwork you expect from @jeremyabbottpcf in a great run-through.

    OK, the Kevin Reynolds link was not what I'd hoped to see!

    Him either, I bet.

    Thanks to everybody who shared links. I am still very about Parkinson and not Righini being there. I know there were clear and transparent rules but Righini had to wait for his clearance to represent Italy. Had he got it earlier, he would have surely racked up enough points to get selected.

    Yeah there were clear rules... and those rules were stupid!!! how can you send the skater with the highest free skating score?! any italian man would be lucky to pass the short, so at least sen the one with the highest short program score....

    Hey now. Every skater has fallen at some point. That being said, Canada really needs to put Chan in both segments.

    Thanks for practice pics/vids! I'm getting excited!

    Me, too.

    Has there been talk of using Reynolds in the team competition? 'Cause yeah, doesn't look like a good idea. (Not just because of the photo, but his nationals performances, too).

    Thanks for the practice reports, much appreciated. My fingers are crossed that NBC live feed will run smoothly on Thursday.

    Ouch for Kevin.
