    I have a hard time believing that 2 quads and 6 triples is Chan's real layout. I think the planned 3flip+2toe towards the end of the program will become 3flip+3toe depending on Hanyu's performance and scores.

    I had to write this, cause thus us my lucky day! I don't know if anyone is in Sochi but i have one ticket for the men to give for free! On my way to Oly train I met two girls, fr Serbia and Mexico who were here for Plush, I know it doesn't sound good but the Serbian girl won't be going and gave me her A category for free (!!! Imagine my reaction) so I wish someone is here and wants to see men's free on my seat!!!

    Anyway, the NYT has a cool graphic of the planned jump content for the final group:

    Neat graphic! Although they should have used Chan's TEB program if they were going to use best programs of the season and accurately show *planned* content.

    Then he is going to lose his olympic medal because he is already repeating 4T and 3lutz. He can't repeat 3T too. Hanyu has two different quads because of this rule.

    That's so cool for you seniorita. So Plush not competing has at least a small positive effect for you!

    My comment is based on this article http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2...umps.html?_r=2, which shows Chan's layout as:
    4toe+2toe
    4toe
    3Axel
    3Lutz+1loop+3Salchow
    3Lutz
    3loop
    3flip+2toe
    2Axel

    I hope Hanyu makes his 4S.

    If Chan goes clean like the GPF and Hanyu falls again on his 4S but still wins, I'm going to have a lot of explaining to do for my coworkers and friends.

    Yes, that is what he has been planning all season up to this point. I'm not sure why this article is claiming otherwise unless it's a mistake or they have some inside info from Chan's team. Doing the 3toe later in the program after the 3flip would net him more points if he were able to pull it off.

    Agreed. But yes, in the past if he's missed the 3T on the opening quad and only does a double he will add it onto the 3F often.

    Good luck again to Daisuke, Brian, Tomas and Jeremy!!! (soooo sad that Evgeni is not here...)

    They are the ones who did make me fall in figure skating again, along with Stephane, Jeff, Johnny and Evan, and I have been rooting for them for 10 years till today. I do not want them to retire, forever, but it seems the day has come finally. Figure Skating won't be the same without them for me...;;;;;;;; I don't think I can watch tonight's free skate without crying, honestly.

    I should be rather grateful, however, since they decided to continue their competitive career even after Vancouver (though they knew it wasn't an easy road to ride at all) and gave us another wonderful 4 years of time to enjoy figure skating and many memorable performances full of their personality.
    With much love, gratitude and admiration from my heart I will stay up all night to watch these wonderful boys to skate their very last Free skate at the Olympic Games, cheer for them, and I will try hard not to miss any moments of every single performance of theirs tonight.

    Goooo Dai, Brian, Tomas aaand Jeremy! Go all out! Skate with all of your heart. Just for youself and for your love for skating!!!

    I know exactly what you mean. At the same time, I'm thinking to myself "they can go out there and _do_ that, and you can't even watch??!!"

    Yesterday, I had to read the comments here before I could watch because I was so nervous.

    I hate myself

    I think they just copied last competition's protocols because this page says Fernandez planning 2lutz+2toe. (Europeans) Olympics page has planned elements list. http://www.sochi2014.com/en/figure-s...n-free-skating

    Just say he has more difficult jumps,several of them are in second half too. Don't worry nobody going to question a skater If his technical points are still better than second place skater, even with a fall. When you are only winning with PCS, thats problem.

    Aw, don't hate yourself. I know the feeling. It is hard to be so emotionally invested in something. A moment that only arrives every 4 years, it is hard to stay calm, even for us fans.
