NM: I hope it won’t be the same judges at Saitama (WC 2014) … the fact remains that it is surprising what happened with Denis Ten, came back from hell, he was ninth after the short program and everyone’s surprised of his first place after the free skating. But normally now, Yuzuru Hanyu for Japan, Machida and Takahashi have already performed but it was so-so, but here, they present their “ace”, Yuzuru Hanyu, who is considered today like the best skater in the world. Does he confirm the expectations about him?… Immortal theme of Romeo and Juliet … and it starts ! For the man who can be the Olympic champion, but before we are waiting the Patrick Chan’s FS.
(1:16) AD : Halalala, unbelievable …
PC: Ayayaya it’s not the moment to …
AD: I think it is the first (quad) that he missed this week.
NM: It is not the moment for doing that ! … My god, my god …
PC: Ayaya, It will give him doubts … (1:14) Perfect ! Superb, it’s beautiful. Restart like this after a fall (it’s amazing) …
NM: What happened Philippe ?!
PC: The rotation was not complete on the salchow, and it brings him to the fall.
(1:51) NM: Oh no !!! Not a second …. Not a second fall …
PC: He lets the door opened to Patrick Chan, especially the random draw give him (Chan) a good rank concerning the order of the passage.
NM: All was possible but not that … really this is a cataclysm… What happened Annick, what happened !
AD: Sometimes, we are too confident of oneself and we forgot to pay attention to a magic word for sportsman called “alertness”, nothing is never win in advance.
(2:43)NM: A Biellmann spin … it is rare in men’s category…
(2:54)PC: So, Is he able to retook control of himself ? Even though, he fell twice with two big falls.
NM: Phillipe, you have already known this type of situation, Shall he try to save the silver medal ? Because there …. Oh I …. I don’t know ….. What does he think ?
PC: Maybe re-try another quad …
AD: I think he will ensure with two triple axel, this is on his interest. Here the first, following with another triple. That is near 15 points
PC: Beautiful technic.
(3:26) AD : He needs to put a second (triple axel).
NM: Today is the Valentine’s Day, “a time for us” (title of the extract of Romeo and Juliet), it is very beautiful, good choice, relevant …..(3:34) Be careful …
AD: Second triple axel …
PC: Yah it’s okay, with a preparation (before the jump) that merits points.
NM : Maybe a little bit stiff at the end (of the jump) … but this is good, it works.
(3:44) PC: Triple loop, well, he is reawakened our Japanese.
NM : He is a wonderful skater, a marvelous skater …
PC: Brave and very strong on his mind.
NM: But I think the silver medal is still possible, just a minute and a half before the end.
(4:12) PC: Yes, Triple flip, triple salchow, both in combination, at the end of the program.
NM: He doesn’t miss panache
(4:25): it is the boldness, the youthfulness … here again triple lutz.
(4:45) PC: These types of movements will bring him many points (the Ina Bauer) on the second mark (the PCS) … but Patrick Chan also has got these skills.
NM: And as you often said, they both put their most difficult elements at the end of the program … Ahhh this twirl is magnificent.
(5:16): He is maybe not the best of this day but, he gave us so exciting moments during this Olympics, I don’t know if he will be the Olympic champion this evening … It is unfortunate that he fell twice.
NM: But Philippe, while he is finishing the choregraphy, under the cheers of the crowd, he was tonight the skater we have loved the most, we have filled with emotion…
AD: Halala, he can’t take it anymore. I think he has a cramp…. Ohh he is smiling. If I wanted to guess what he thinks, it is extremely presumptuous for me, “how can I give my worst performance of the year in the main event in the year?” I don’t remember when he had given to us such a worst performance like that …
PC: Annick, you are severe, I would like to have a bad student like him (regarding his skills).
NM: Yes Annick, you are too severe.
AD: But I’m not severe, he is able to do three quad jumps, here he has two falls, concerning quad jumps, it is not exceptional compared to others, but he is capable to make 101 points on a short program where he didn’t give his maximum, because he is able to do two different quads.
PC: I can’t let you saying that, you are too severe, I wouldn’t like to be your fiancée … (laugh).
We don't have the extract of kiss and cry in french, but you can pick up the video on youtube in other language but u miss nothing because, when the score was appeared, French commentators said that the door is widely opened for Patrick Chan. Thet didn't expect a better score of Hanyu, in accordance with his two falls.
