    It is more than likely that he will be growing more in the next few years, fingers crossed they work through it.

    Thx for the info. The long legs definitely give him the appearance of being taller than 5'4". Reworking the technique takes time too, and certainly more than 2 months.

    How did it happen that Stephen was not the smallest, but the tallest on the podium?
    He looks great with that Californian tan and very bright hair. I wish his skating has been looking equally great, but he's still in transition, without the doubt.

    JGP Lake Placid Men medal ceremony: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzXgi9F5rZg Stephen looked pretty glum in that video. I wish I could tell him what I told Joseph Phan three weeks ago in person: "Please don't be too hard on yourself."

    That image is of the Top 3 after the short program. For the over-all podium, Stephen is shorter than Gleb Lutfullin. However, if he eventually does become tall, you can blame it on whatever mysterious substance is in Canadian drinking water which causes our men's singles skaters to grow tall. (Only Keegan Messing was spared because he was born in Alaska, but the other top Canadian guys who are over 18---which is the age of majority in Canada---are no less than 5'11"! Phan's ISU bio hasn't been updated yet, but he was 5'11" when I met him at the Quebec Summer Championships.)

    I absolutely love his SP! Compared to last season, he definitely moves with greater speed and smoothness across the ice, and his presentation skills have noticeably improved. He's clearly still adapting to his new environment, so I know we can't expect him to deliver great performances all the time, but I think Stephen is on the right path to develop into the skater that I dreamed that he could be.

    I'm catching up on uploading a few videos that I've neglected during the tail end of last season due to my health issues.

    Every coach walks a thin line between being too soft and being too hard on his students. Being tough in training is OK, but in competition, out in the open, a coach plays a different role. A talented teenage boy shooting up in his growth spurt needs a different kind of encouragement to keep him interested in the sport, when so many other interesting things (like girls) start playing in his mind. If Raf manages to keep Stephen in ice skating, the hardest part of his job has been completed.

    Besides, in this television and internet age, a coach giving his student the cold shoulder will immediately be singled out in the media and social media in particular.

    Stephen singled two jumps in the middle of his JGP Zagreb LP, but over-all it was a better performance than at the JGP Lake Placid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09PU5edpF2A

    Here's his SP, which I neglected to post earlier: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIaqY8lpvQI

    I've made his JGP Zagreb LP available at 59 frames per second (the one on YouTube is 29 fps), in case some of you like the smoother graphics from a higher frame rate.

    I wasn't able to do the same for his short programs, unfortunately, because the full JGP Lake Placid Men SP video wasn't at 59 fps, and I can't seem to find the link for the JGP Zagreb Men SP (so either Ted Barton didn't upload it, or most likely something along the lines of "This video contains content from WMG, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds" prevents me from accessing the file).
