    Men - Free Program - Notes from Rosaleen

    Note: The following reports are copyright Golden Skate. Please, while you may provide links to reports, do not copy & paste them elsewhere. Thank you.

    Please don't post in this thread (it's easier for me), use the thread for the event marked 'comments'. Thanks

    The men are just finishing their warm-up and we're on our way -- here's hoping for a good night of skating.

    Notes Music: Lord of the Dance Costume: white shirt with black pants / music starts with bell tolling and then into deep aaaahhhhs / and a bit of chor and then around this way for a big 2a (that was meant to be a 3) / music picks up a beat and a little chor down to the far end of the rink for a 3f3t / flysit to inside edge to twisted pos and the music is REALLY building - almost too much / 2a / now we have a slow heavy beat and some chor and it starts speeding up / popped z to single - bad pick I think / sit ch sit with inside edge of front tuck on back then front again and to an A and outside edge that completely died / music is soft & slow now and a little bit of chor / 3l that I'm sure was doubled / 3z2t / this music is asking for chor and there really isn't any right now / 3f / S ftwrk that doesn't have enough to it / now we're into the familiar quick beat and the crowd is clapping and I think I missed a jump - 3s / combo spin right at the boards in front of me / strt steps as the music is building and these again need more steps / upright scratch spin to end the program / pb ? Probably what he got in q's /

    Notes Music: Opera Faust Costume white on top black bottom diagonal slashes joining the 2 colours / crowd went absolutely crazy when he stepped on the ice and then when he was introduced - they quietened very quickly when the music started / 3a 3t lean in air on axel but he pulled it off / 3a again in the same spot on ice really tight on landing after the same kind of lean as the 1st but he did it / 3z landed pitched forward but managed to tack a 2t on to it / flycam - didn't really see - busy writing / 3f / 3l / flysit to inside edge to back sit and out / 3z as the crowd cheers / strt steps as music changes and the crowd is clapping / music smooths out and some chor as it gains something that the crowd is trying to clap to 3s / some posing and chor at centre ice / 2a really swingy like the triples but he hangs on / didn't really see the spin while writing / O ftwrk and the crowd is clapping again as it ends and he's into his final combo spin and they're clapping right to the end / he should be proud of that performance - the jumps weren't perfect but he had the determination to hold on to the landings /
