    Men - Qualifying A - Notes from Rosaleen

    Here we go with Qualifying A - hopefully things will continue the way they have and I'll be able to update after each skater


    The men are on the ice for warm-up and are being introduced to cheers from the fans

    RUS Evgenui Plushenko Start 1
    Notes Music: The Godfather - introduced to great cheers from the crowd. Wearing glittery black with bit of red at neck and wrists / 4t3t2l - that's what the cheat sheet shows but I'm not really sure that that's what I saw - keep reviewing the picking foot in my mind and I think it might have been a 3z / 2a / 3a2t or was it only a 2a not quite sure - didn't see it properly / 3z / there was a nice bit of chor in there but my mind was distracted / 3f2t / music changes and some dancing / 3s / flycam with nice pos & speed into back sit into back upright into front upright and the music stops and then starts again and into the O ftwrk which is right with music and complex and the crowd is clapping along and cheering / 3a with a turnout / 3l / fly forward cam to donut / and into strt ftwrk as the crowd screams and is clapping along even louder / into sit ch sit with flyover that is only ok / cam sit upright variations to foot in front to upright and a big smile on his face and cheering crowd and he's bent over and looks like that took a lot out of him - taking a long time to acknowledge the crowd and a good portion of them are on their feet with lots of Russian flags flying /

    double-checked my monitor and the tech spec show his jumps as
    3z3t2l / 2a / 3a2t / 3z / 3f2t / 3s /3a /3l /

    Notes Music: The Millennium Show / wearing black / a bit of chor to soft music to start / 3z very tight with hand down / 3a little tight on landing but think clean - can't see anything except very obvious cheats from up here / 3f / music changes to very heavy beat for the flycam which is quite good / O ftwrk is moving quite fast / another 3a - this one I'm quite sure was short rot and he fell / flycam is good / some chor and into the S ftwrk that leaves a little to be desired / big setup for 3l that was 2footed and short rot / music changes again and becomes almost Celtic - he's just skating around setting up for a 3s turns into 2t - not really paying much attention to the music / 2t / now a tiny bit of chor into flying camsit ch sit to inside edge /

    Notes Music: Dark Eyes, The Old Castle / white blousey top with red sash and blackk pants / some chor as music picks up beat that crowd is clapping with until he slips off his edge going into a 3l and falls / 2a is nice / 3z fell out turns 2t / his speed and flow across the ice so far has been quite good / fly cam into a sit is nice / music smooths out and some chor at centre ice and around into a 2a / 3f fell / fly sit ch sit has good pos - bit slow / aside from the 1st 30 seconds or so he hasn't really been with the music and as I write this, the music picks up and the crowd is clapping and he's now using his music / I missed a jump in there I think / 3z hand down fell out / strt ftwrk is with music / think there might have been a final jump near the end (the cheat sheet says 3t) that I didn't see / into a flysit to end the program /

    Notes Music Natural Born Killers soundtrack black with red bands around body & down arms / 3a is really high - hard fall / some chor to middle eastern sounding chant / 3z3t just pulled off the toe / a bit more chor and around as music changes to drum beat / 3s2t bit wild but done / I just missed something think maybe a 3l / cam ch cam is fast with excellent pos / more chor as music darkens and slows then start with low oboe maybe? Popped flip / 3t with a couple of turns out / 2a / flycam to inside edge / a pause at the end of the rink for strt ftwrk to some sort of chanting / 2a / can't quite figure out how to describe this music - it's interesting but not something I'd want to listen to for too long / very unique & interesting combo spin into O ftwrk that also is quite interesting and varied / much as it was kind of a weird program to me - it went by very fast /
